For our latest Moovmnt guest mix, we decided to ask our buddy Anthony Valadez, from the always sunny Los Angeles. A loooooong time ago Ant blessed us with a Moovmnt exclusive guest mix, but we thought time was right for a follow-up. In two months I’ll be visiting KCRW’s very own teddy bear in the flesh for some bro luv. Thank you AntVa and also special thanks to Duktus for the nice artwork.
Heard and Felt Music presents another compilation album, “Stylin’ 600″, presented by Melbourne’s favorite radio icon Ennio Styles. There’s music on there from Heavy, Sampha, Brandee Younger, ChromodaData and DuFrayne. Best part is that it’s a free download in celebration of 600 episodes and 12 years of Stylin’.
Thanks to Sweeney Kovar we got wind of an MC who goes by the name of Chris Clarke who quite recently released his latest project, “The Handpicked”, for free (for a limited time only). This project features handpicked collaborations with some of L.A.’s finest including Stephen ‘Thundercat’ Bruner and his brother Ronald Bruner Jr. The track “Don’t Mimic” is by far the best thing on there with additional harmonizing from Kamasi Washington and sax solo from Taylor Graves. Good news…this one is still available as a free download right here!
It’s been too long since we heard some new music from one of L.A.’s sexiest saxophonists Terrace Martin, but just when we were getting slighty nervous his latest single, “No Wrong No Right”, came floating our direction. This is of his upcoming “3ChordFold” LP which is slated to drop August 13. Martin shows how sometimes in relationships, no one wants to admit their wrongs. The single is available on iTunes now so act accordingly.
LA based producer/singer/songwriter Seven Davis Jr. is soon to release his debut solo EP, entitled “One”, on Must Have Records. Remember our previous post a few years back with J.Mitchell? Think smooth vocals, rough & rugged club beats with a twist of summer time. Davis’ EP is gonna be out on 12″ vinyl and he is supposedly also working on new project with Funkineven. Listen to this exclusive stream and stay tuned for a buy link!!
When the entire country you live in is experiencing a heat wave, the first thing you do is hit the beach hard of course. In between I thought I’d do a quick post about Quadron‘s latest “Avalanche” album. Enjoy and live the good life..
