Reach out to me at and check the links for the artists. This is your "free" mixtape. In a couple of weeks, all episodes will be done like the mixtapes we grew up on. Finally, thanks for your support.

Slowmo: The start of it all.....

It's been almost two years since I began putting the music out. For me the start of it all began by hooking up with the group Slowmo from Sweden. At first we only had a vision which fueled our dream of being heard and appreciated. Today we have arrived and are even more determined to break new ground. This free download of the week comes from the EP "Hidden Souls" and is called 'From A Window'. It is a favorite of radio and podcasters worldwide and has it's noted share of underground success. Vibe with me as I take you back to the start of it all. Look for all Slowmo tracks on iTunes also.

Bekay the Brass King: Above Ground Music

I've always confessed to having humble beginnings. My journey has been fruitful and my success due in part to many people who have guided me in this music career. None more so than my brother Bekay, aka, the Brass King. Who would have ever thought I'd be in a position to give him a celebrity endorsement? Bekay wears many hats: DJ, producer, promoter, music historian, etc. His knowledge and respect for his craft set the standard for others to emulate. An ardent supporter of soulful musicians both major and indie, his mixtapes run the gamut of styles: soul, salsa, latin jazz, hip hop, etc. Today's podcast is a special arrangement for you to get acquainted with the man I give much deserved credit. Without further adieu, let me introduce to you all Bekay the Brass King!!!
