"Quick" by Freddie Joachim

Gonna make this "Quick"...literally just got this via a Twitter post by super producer Freddie Joachim. Check it, download this hot track and consider this an introduction to Mr. Joachim if you haven't already recognized his talent and extensive work. I love this style of music, smooth, melodic, and soulful. Much love and much respect and, oh yeah, Merry Christmas.

JSOUL: Black Sinatra

the fruits of his labor, JSoul has teamed up with some of soul music’s most illustrious artists such as: Eric Roberson, The Floacist, Julie Dexter and the incomparable Carol Riddick; who happens to be featured on the official single, “Tell Me.”

No stranger to Hip-Hop, JSoul has collaborated with the DMV’s own, Mr. International himself, Substantial. He is crossing all boundaries and bridging them together with Black Sinatra.        

Baltimore’s own, JSoul, has been influenced by legends. He’s studied their formulas, paid his dues, and has mastered his very own unique style that is reminiscent of old school flavor, with a new school sound. Singer, songwriter and producer are three titles JSoul embodies. He has written and produced all the music on Black Sinatra. JSoul expresses his interpretations of love by using his velvet vocals, gliding them over soulful tracks. This is simply one of the many reasons why it makes him the Soul Brotha #1 to watch out for!

For PR information or booking requests, please contact Drea at 443-527-5204/newdrea@gmail.com.  Twitter: @whosedrea

Kay Flow courtesy of MrCooDoo

Time to "Welcome to the Game" Kay Flow. The newest spitter hailing out of Northern Cali by way of Southern Cali (Inland Empire). Using hard hitting punchlines and witty metaphors as the "Main Ingredient" to his recipe for success. His intricate flow ranges from a "So Soulful" aspect but easily switches with a volatile "Explosive Content" embodied by a "Savage" delivery. Schooled and raised by the legendary school of that old boom bap, Kay Flow is on a quest for the silence and "Assassination" of wack emcees that tend to act "Out of Character". His survival of the fittest mindset renders competitors weak and no match for his "Lyrical Exercise". Kay Flows lyrical prowess hovers over the opposition....This is only the beginning....

Ode to Matt Jam Lamont..

Earlier this week I was browsing online. Not sure where I was or how I came across this mix but it was posted as a free download. This mix was done by Carl "Tuff Enuff" Brown and Matt "Jam" Lamont back in 1997. These guys are world renown for their original mixing style of "house" and "garage" music. Thing is, I had the pleasure of watching them spin live in Blackpool and also in London. I lived in Cambridgeshire for two years in the late nineties and we  used to follow our favorited DJs all over the country. Now here I am 13 years later and still going strong. Much love to all of the DJs who have created, inspired, and made a lifelong impression for the sake of the music. We hope you'll enjoy this mix. May it bring back a memory or two for you and put a smile on your face.

We are please to close out the year with features on ones to watch for the next decade. Next up, Kristopher Lamont! I have a vested interest in sharing the work of this seasoned soul music performer. A gentle soul and a student of music history, Kristopher's debut single "Change" is the result of years of hard work and sacrifice. Even better, we all get to reap the benefits of his efforts.

I had the pleasure of meeting and hanging out with Kristopher this past summer. We are mutually acquainted with the likes of Ann Marie Collymore (Montreal--NY), Stico Von Drake, Tensei Productions, Detrel and Pam, and others.

Take a minute and join us on our journey and please provide us your feedback. Like always, once we embrace an artist, they fly on our radar for the ages. Here's my testimony to a star that will shine for the ages. Find, follow, and connect with Kristopher Lamont...the debut single "Change" is now on iTunes!

Originally from Richmond, VA Kia Bennett currently resides in Washington D.C.  I first heard her work on the Soulpersona Compilation (UK) a couple of years ago. We've been in touch with Kia since then and were more than ecstatic to have an opportunity to feature her music. "Lifetime" has been a favorite of mine for a minute now. I hope it speaks to you in the same way it did to me. Take a minute to discover and share the work of Ms. Bennett. She'd love to hear from you as well.

Beautiful Sounds by DJ Nerstylist

  I started this mix in 2007, finished it in 2008, and am now finally seeing it come to fruition in 2010. I actually intended for this mix to be a CD release, but ultimately decided that making it freely downloadable would be the best approach.


The title "Beautiful Sounds" is pretty self explanatory. Basically, I wanted to take all things that sound beautiful, blend these things together, package it, then share it with all of you. When I think of the phrase "Beautiful Sounds", I hear congas, horns, bass lines, jazz chords, latin rhythms, and sultry voices singing in languages I can't understand. If someone asked me what genres "Beautiful Sounds" would be comprised of, I'd mention jazz, afrobeat, bossanova, samba, salsa, soul, funk, and anything else you don't hear on your local radio station.


I'm quite satisfied with the way that this turned out, despite all the nit-picking I could still do with it. In retrospect, I never thought that my 10+ years of deejaying would amount to me putting out a mix such as this one. Early on in my DJ career, I always thought I would remain a hip-hop battle DJ practicing to be the next Q-bert (just like everyone else in the 90's). I'm nowhere close to competing for a DMC championship, but I'm content that my style has evolved to what it is now.


My heart and soul will always yearn for beautiful music, and as a DJ that's what I'll continue to provide...

LOL Well, we know some of the same people and therefore, we are knit at the souls. One mention of Stico Von Drake, Kafele Bandele, or Koku Gonza and you have my attention for good.

Introducing Lando...."Space"

“Highly anticipated” is just one of the thoughts that come to mind when you think of Lando’s music you can use sophisticated, smooth, and heart felt.  Lando, who was born Orlando R. Joiner, started singing at the young age of 5.  Raised on Detroit’s West Side Lando was never certain he wanted to pursue a music career.  This came as a surprise to most because he sang in church. “I’ve always loved music but singing was another thing”, Lando says when asked how his career got started. Lando was always good with numbers so he decided to go to school and become an accountant.  “I couldn’t think of anything else to do being as though I was so good with numbers,” he says humbly about himself. 

If you’ve ever had the chance to experience Lando’s vocal style; then you know you’re in for a treat.  Lando’s delivery is distinctive and captivating when he effortlessly stretches his elastic tenor tone way beyond the limits of many.  Lando has gained a ton of recognition for his strong vocal talent, insightful lyrics, and bold performances.  Lando has the making of greatness and will continue to shower his fans with great music. 

Get in touch, buy the album on iTunes and reach out to Lando on Twitter!

Mr. Mendez : Another Saturday....

I wish I could say that I "discovered" the talent of Anthony Mendez. Yeah, that would be too cool. Truth is, he was referred to "us" by my dear friend Sharon Holleran. Sharon and I always have wonderful conversations and if it werent' for an unlimited calling plan, I'd be in trouble. During one of our recent lengthy interludes, Sharon mentioned Mr. Mendez and the rest is his--story.

This is an exclusive listen and preview of his yet untitled album. Yeah, for everyone from Cali to the rest of the world in search of new, wonderful, and refreshingly good music.  Check out my man Anthony Mendez and show your love....

Another Saturday
Anthony Mendez ©2005

I hate the fact you gotta come home to bullshit
Come home and do shit
Tweaking on the weekend just to feel like you’ve used it
Again I’m so tired of losing time/ But
Blame myself, because I’m the only one seeing
The choices I’m choosing
Fusing together / music with weather
Sick of California but it’s hard to fuck with
Better places / sweeter faces.
A City map full of mazes
Will get you lost trying to trace it
Drawing dreams on your legs
It makes sense to break a couple of eggs
In the process
It’s like a mosh pit, running around in circles
Acting like you’ve lost it
The cost of freedom makes you go a little crazy
Amazing what you see at bus stops
When the love stops baby
I’m going insane, I’m feeling the pain

Why on earth we gotta play
With old formulas
I’ve sold all my trust / Just to say
We should never hesitate to look behind us
Smiling as we walk away
Reminding me of Saturdays
When things are the way they should be.

Too often I find myself; teetering the fine line
In the divine search for happiness, I hunt god
But find me and nothing else
Justified by calling it discovery of self
You know / ordinary practices of artists on their mattresses
And you know, you
Get to the point where all you think about
Is you know…you
But I’m proud and I miss my momma too
I’m worried my little nephews growing up with
Out a clue on how to be a man
With the only men in his life is his crack daddy
And “Dez Hope” for the mic
Me’ I’m too busy star gazing for my name in lights
Always preaching that tomorrow I’m gonna make it right.
And his father / you know what he’s fucking like
The kind of man that would dare steal his son’s bike
Destroy a kid / sprinkle him inside his crack pipe
Not give a fuck
Then throw a couple of dollars and hopes that it’ll make it up

Why on earth we gotta play
With old formulas
I’ve sold all my trust / Just to say
We should never hesitate to look behind us
Smiling as we walk away
Reminding me of Saturdays
When things are the way they should be.

Nneka--Concrete Jungle (Show Your Love)

COA

 

Shout outs to ma partenaire Marion Lombardi for all of her help in keeping the podcast rolling along smoothly. She's currently on assignment and trying to catch up with E. Badu during her stint in London. So, have you heard of Nneka? People are still emailing us about Nneka's latest album titled "Concrete Jungle". In our opinion, it is one of the most complete and soulful works of the year. Case in point, well, listen to this groove titled "Come With Me" which we've recently put in heavy rotation. Thanks to Jamiena Shah (Toronto) and producer Stico Von Drake (Chicago) for their drops. Thanks always to the Facebook and Twitter Massive for continued support. Because of you, we have more music on the way. Stay tuned....

Omaha's Finest: DJ Brent Crampton

Brent Crampton is single handedly putting the city of Omaha on the map. I had the pleasure of making his acquaintance this past weekend. After witnessing his remarkable set of splendid house music, I asked if he'd contribute a mix to our show. Brent obliged and the result is the posting of his "Deep Coffee House Mix". Check out more of his work via his site at  http://www.brentcrampton.com . A noted DJ, graphic designer, publicist and many other talents. Brent is, in a word, remarkable and we look forward to sharing more of his work in the near future. Better yet, the day will come when we will share the stage. You may have to come to Omaha to see it, but it will be worth the wait. Until next time, enjoy!!

Koku Gonza: So High (Confessions of a Songwriter)

​Koku Gonza is the definition of natural talent. She is a singer who specializes in song writing and her music can be categorized in different genres-- nu soul, rhythm and blues, electro soul, etc.

Koku was influenced by two key musicians in her life--her father and her mother. Her father, a renowned Tanzanian composer and guitarist, exposed Koku to the African music of his roots.  Koku Gonza's mother, a flute/sax player and a cultured musician from the U.S. , shared her knowledge in multiple genres such as Gospel, Jazz and Classical music with Koku.  Koku Gonza inclines the creativity of a combination of various styles of music. 

At a young age, Koku learned how to play piano and sang Gospel in the Classical Citywide children's choir. While attending college, she studied music production and song writing at Indiana University School of Music in Bloomington before deciding to pursue a career in the music industry.

Koku Gonza's voice is unique. Her love for the guitar has resulted in mandatory accompaniment with most of her songs, but she works with different instruments to create her unique sound.

She performed at the Chicago Soul Music Festival with the Legendary ROY AYERS, the Super Soul event with Grammy Nominated YAHZARAH from Foreign Exchange and the Peace House Africa -Tanzania Exposed, an organization which shelters AIDS orphans, with Grammy Nominated MATTHEW SANTOS.

Her style can be heard in a jumping house beat or a soft melodic down tempo tune.

Bashiri Asad: Beautiful You ​Marion Lombardi and I are really onto something special. Each day we communicate and talk about the multitude of talent we have come across. Sometimes, we run out of time because the music has given way to new ideas and of course, more "work" to do. LOL How about this for discovering new talent? Check out the sounds of Bashiri Asad. Bashiri is currently working on his debut LP which will drop in July 2010. He was kind enough to send us a few tracks and we are going to honor his music by sharing "Beautiful You" with the world today. Do us a favor and reach out to him online. You can find our more about the man and his gift by reading the interview on Marion's blog titled "The Wonderful World of Carminelitta".  If this track finds you wanting more, then spoil yourself with some Hip-Hop Soul featuring Bashiri and Pariah da Poetic on Soundclick. 

We are going to continue to spoil you with wonderful music and passionate writings. Thanks for reading, downloading, and sharing our vibes. Together, we are all ONE.

Marion Lombardi Reviews Choklate (en francais)

J’ai découvert Choklate il y a plusieurs années, avec ce premier album éponyme et j’ai tout de suite été séduite. L’album a tous les critères pour être qualifié de classique, même si Choklate est relativement nouvelle sur la scène soul indépendante.

Ce qui m’a tout d’abord attirée est la très grande qualité des productions, qui créent une impression d’ensemble très soul, mais avec une touche moderne et des rythmes entraînants. Une grande place est donnée aux instruments (notamment guitare, piano et cuivres), ce qui est quelque chose que j’apprécie tout particulièrement. Cet aspect de l’album est l’une des raisons pour lesquelles je le qualifie de classique : il y a un côté intemporel, signe de qualité, et cela permet d’écouter l’album régulièrement sans se lasser.

Ensuite, un élément très important est la voix de Choklate, si particulière et agréable à écouter. Je me laisse bercer par les différents styles qu’elle adopte et avec lesquels elle est toujours à l’aise. Sa voix a une certaine chaleur, elle est apaisante et me permet de voyager encore plus facilement dans son monde.

Enfin, une autre raison pour laquelle je suis vraiment séduite par la musique de Choklate et par cet album est l’écriture et les messages qu’elle fait passer. Choklate est très honnête et ouverte lorsqu’il s’agit d’exprimer ce qu’elle pense et ressent, et cela me permet de m’identifier à elle et de me retrouver dans ses mots. Dans cet album, elle aborde le thème de l’amour, mais traite aussi de la vie en général et la société actuelle, toujours avec optimisme et beaucoup d’inspiration. Ses textes sont très bien écrits, pleins de métaphores et sont très motivants et encourageants.

L’album permet de découvrir son univers et de suivre ses traces en passant par l’amour et les relations de couple (Never change, Incredible, Amazing, Wish I hadn’t told you and Whenever), puis par les hauts et les bas de la vie (Thank you, Long way, Heavy, Bigger than you).  

Même si tous les titres sont très bons, il y en a quelques-uns qui sortent du lot et que j’apprécie tout particulièrement. Tout d’abord, sa très belle déclaration d’amour à la musique (Dedicated to music), car elle décrit très bien ce que je ressens personnellement, et elle imagine la musique comme un partenaire, et sa relation avec elle comme celle d’un couple. Je peux tout à fait me reconnaître dans ses mots : ‘it’s the music that keeps my sanity’. Ensuite,  Bigger than you est un message très positif, qui encourage ses auditeurs à réaliser qu’il y a une ‘force’ supérieure, une connection entre les gens, qui permet de voir la vie de façon plus spirituelle et de lui donner une signification plus importante. Enfin, le magnifique What’s about to go down est pour moi digne des plus grands classiques soul, par sa production parfaite, l’utilisation des instruments et surtout la place laissée à la musique elle-même, qui m’a beaucoup touchée. Dans ce morceau, Choklate encourage également à se retrouver, à se rapprocher les uns des autres, et je dois dire que grâce à cet album je me sens plus proche d’elle et des gens qui apprécient le même genre de musique.

If it were I,
I'd take you there on the warmest of days
The sand of the beach upon which we would play
In that moment, genuflect, as if in worship
Existing only to witness your receipt of full pleasure

If it were I,
I'd tender your womanhood with no less than
A thousand gentle lashes from the warmth of my tongue
The intensity of which would consume you and your
Moans would echo loudly, the words of a song only
You and I would understand..

The gentle aura would be as if forever
Your legs would spread as if the wings of angels
The rush of your waters so strong but not
A drop of your essence would spill
My stay between your wings lasting long
Long enough to know each hair of your
Womanhood, by name.

If it were I,
I'd watch from the corner of my eye even
As the anklet rolled South, the moment
Of finding your rhythm, an orgasm to take
You high it would be as if your feet touched
The bottom of the clouds...

The gentle lashes now too much to bear
You become mine, the waters now overflow
And meeting the rays of the sun,
A small rainbow will begin to form

My desire now at it's greatest
The longing for you at it's peak
For your tenderness has given me
Strength and vigor, I'd take you
And plunging deep within your walls,
So powerful and strong my thrusts
Would bury you in the sand...
Damn!

But only if it were I...
And You.

DJ Eric: The Saga Continues

We spoke briefly with DJ Eric earlier in the week. He's currently balancing life as a superstar DJ and soon to be label owner. He confessed that after all these years, his mixes are starting to take him place beyond the walls of his quaint studio. The first mix we posted by DJ Eric was well received! At times, we couldn't keep up with the influx of "fan" mail that found it's way to our inbox. You'd figure that he'd be used to it by now. LOL! A kind person and with an even gentler demeanor, DJ Eric will shun the spotlight everytime. That's okay because that's where we come in to sing worthy praises and even more deserved accolades. So on behalf of everyone who vibes to this brand of music, we are set to bob our heads in agreement and extend a virtual embrace to DJ Eric. All the best bro!

We've been in contact with some wonderful artists the past few weeks. I was so happy, elated even, to speak with Gabbie McGee. See, Gabbie and I "met" a few years ago shortly after I listened to her debut cd "Certified Soul Starring Gabbie McGee...". We featured the track 'Bobbie's Groove' on one of our early editions of the podcast. Since then, we've been bragging about and promoting her talent to people all over ther world. It was satisfying to talk to and reminisce with Gabbie all the wonderful things the music has done for both of us. I am happy to see  her growth as an artists and fortunate to know her thus far.

Gabbie continues to support us as well and she quickly responded to our request for a few songs that we could share with everyone. So here's to a few more years of talking about Gabbie McGee. Feel free to download, share, and purchase her new album now available at CD Baby... and iTunes. She's as sweet a person as she is talented. Enjoy and keep in touch.

Beautiful by Stevy Mahy

Stevy is a beautiful human being and an amazing artist. Hailing from Guadeloupe in the French West Indies, having lived in Paris and traveling back and forth between the two places, she is a Creole woman and you can feel this bridging between the two cultures in her music. She sings in French, English, Creole, and her main subject is love. Love for her man or love in the broader and more spiritual sense of the word. Her music is very soothing and uplifting, her lyrics very inspiring and her voice perfectly smooth. You can check out her single "Beautiful" which is a perfect introduction to her universe.  Enjoy!

Introducing Soul Monique (London)

I came across Soul Monique's Podcast on Facebook. Yeah, on the page of a mutual friend and future video blogger, Marion! Seeing as we have very similar tastes, I sampled the Soul Monique Show and instantly fell in love. Not only does she play and support great soul music, she's been doing so for years ! Selfless and genuine, it pays to connect with kind personalities in this business. My hope is that you'll reach out and show your love as well. Take an interest in the Soul Monique Show, subscribe on iTunes and you'll see what I mean. Consider this a welcome opportunity to spruce up your playlists and further expand your musical horizons!

Wade III: The Best Album You've Never Heard

I'm on a personal crusade with this one! This is one of the dopest, funkiest albums I've heard in my lifetime and quite honestly, I'm tired of it being an "underground" sensation. So I'm begging you, if I have ever been right about an artist, with this plea to give this an ear.

Artist: WadeIII

Album: Dreams

We take a sample from the album and use it to introduce you to the sound of WadeIII. No, not the basketball player...the singer, the producer, the all around talented musician who is set to "blow up" any minute now. Feel free to follow Wade on Twitter and as always, do keep in touch.

Showtime by SPODA-Mr. Dopeflow

2010 is here and it's "Showtime"! This is how it should be done, my man SPODA is poised to conquer the world with his lyrical skillz. This is more than nice, it's reminiscient of a time when rappers actually rapped, when the word "flow" had significant meaning and separated true mic lords from the rest. Give an ear to this track and show some love to SPODA. Reach out and stay tuned for more from this rising star!
