“Back in 2004 Raphael Saadiq opened his studio doors to Spacek to produce an album for one of his sub labels. The album was supposed to be called “Pookie Blue Room” and features 10 songs produced by both Steve Spacek and Morgan Zarate with Raphael singing on all of them and featuring guest appearances by Common, Q-tip, Ledisi, Steve Spacek and Sir Bentley….anyhow the album was never completed and therefore never released…” [Shouts to DJ Rahdu and Mathieu Schreyer].

Again this mysterious Austrian producer who goes by the name of Mez (aka Mezuian) is comin’ correct with two new production. First song is “Do For You” with vocalist Jonny Sass and my favorite of the two songs below. Second is a new song with Soia called “Mood Swings” which also sounds pretty nice. I think it’s time for Mez to step out of the darkness and into the light. This guy deserves some more shine! Oh and if you hurry you can snag both songs from his Soundcloud page as a free download.

“Breathtaking sparkles, glimmering fractions. What melodical madness causes such satisfaction?”
Yes, yes…finally it’s here. A monthly selection of gems for everyone to enjoy in the form of a 1 hour mix (give or take a few minutes). Since the number 12 is also known as the number for perfection, we have chosen a birthstone for each month. So if you’re into diamonds by the dozen or you like rubies in the rough, you’re in the right place.
January’s birthstone is the Garnet. It’s name comes from the 14th century Middle English word, gernet, meaning ‘dark red’. Enjoy our first mix of the year and spread the word if you dig this.
Seravince consists of producer/keyboard player Vincent Helbers and drummer Richard Spaven who have been working together for quite some time now. The band is heavily influenced by Jazz, Soul, Hip Hop and as you can hear Broken Beat. Their upcoming album, “Hear To See”, will have guest vocals from Renee Neufville (Zhane) and Sharlene Hector. When we got the opportunity to share this unreleased song entitled, “Unrequited Love”, featuring Renee Neufville with you guys we were more than happy to do so. Sit back and enjoy this lovely song. Oh in case you’re in the neighborhood. This Friday the whole band, including Renee Neufville and Sharlene Hector, will be performing live at BIRD in Rotterdam!
