The Yancey Boys (piloted by Illa J and Frank Nitt) and Delicious Vinyl are on the verge of bringing you “Sunset Blvd”. This project is built around previously unheard tracks created by the late J Dilla and will drop next month. The newest single “Quicksand” features Common and Dezi Paige and is a trip. Get yourselves ready for some more serious guest features from Posdnuos, Guilty Simpson, Eric Roberson, SlimKid3 and T3.
Sorry for the long break, but lately posting just a few times a week has been really working for us. Perhaps a bit less for you guys, don’t worry…we’re not about to quit on y0u. Came across this nice new jawn from the lovely couple Malice & Mario Sweet entitled “Jawn Travoltuh”. Straight of their “Enjoy:Like:Love” project and produced by Tall Black Guy. Sounds like the sweetest caramal fudge version of Saturday Night Fever. Enjoy..Like..Love!
Almost slept on this one, but thought it sounds too good not to mention. Miss Fatima‘s new “Circle” EP contains three songs produced by Computer Jay, Oh No and Floating Points (allthough it’s a live version and vinyl only). If you’d like to pick up your copy on vinyl, make sure to head on over to the Eglo shop.
Very pleased to let y’all know that Terrace Martin‘s brand new “3ChordFold” is out! Now here’s a wonderful mix between Hip Hop, Jazz and Soul all blending perfectly into one. Together with musicians like Robert Glasper, James Fauntleroy, Lalah Hathaway and Musiq Soulchild Martin makes this into a winner. Other featuring artists such as Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar and Wiz Khalifa make it more accessible for a younger generation of music fans. A few of my fav’s are “Over Time” featuring Musiq, “Angel”, “Gone” with Robert Glasper & Casey Benjamin and “Triangle Ship” featuring Kendrick Lamar.
It was only yesterday I thought about José James‘ “No Beginning, No End”. Gave that one 1 listen and that was it. This morning I opened my email and was happy to find his new 5-song “Come To My Door” EP. The title track was written by Emily King and the EP contains some crackin’ remixes from fLako, Taylor McFerrin, Oddisee and FaltyDL.
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’.
