I've been following Oscar McMillan for years. If you can, get a hold of his mix called "Heightened Sensitivity" and you'll know what I mean. At this time, I don't have contact information for him but once I find it, I'll be sure to share.

AM444: Album Sampler

AM444 is the new collaboration project of Chinese singer ChaCha (chachachina) and Dutch producer Jay.Soul (jay.soul)

Guiyang, China native ChaCha is part of Shanghai's premiere reggae crew Uprooted Sunshine and has performed all over China as well as in Thailand, Hong Kong, Vietnam etc. She has also already recorded with the likes of Kode 9 (UK - Hyperdub), Clive Chin (Randy's Studio 17, Jamaica), Jahtari (Germany), Sickstar & Sunbiz (Shanghai) and many others. She's generally considered as one of China's brightest underground music stars, switching effortlessly from toasting over reggae, dubstep and drum & bass tracks, to singing soulful melodies over hip-hop grooves, downtempo and funky electronica. She also writes her own lyrics.

Jay.Soul (aka The Groove Architect) is a veteran underground music producer, beatmaker and dj from Amsterdam, currently living in Shanghai. He has produced a wide range of tracks for Mr.Windmill (Netherlands), Cecilia Stalin (UK/Sweden), Sole Profit (USA), Giovanca (Netherlands), Corey (Netherlands), NineFifty (Netherlands), and many other artists as well as remixed Nas, Michael Franti & Spearhead, The Proov, Roots Manuva, etc.

Ever since hearing ChaCha sing and mc in 2008 at Shanghai's best underground club The Shelter (where Jay is one of the resident dj's), plans were made to work together. Due to both artists' busy schedules it took a while, but now the collaboration is finally a fact: AM444

Debut EP expected February 2011.

Style: Electronic, Soulful, Leftfield, Pop, Beats

"Held"  by Ernesto (Sweden)

I wish I could tell you all about Ernesto, his life, his music, etc. Truth is, this track was sent to me a couple of years ago and since then, I can't find any further info on Ernesto. Always loved this groove and looked forward to a collabo with this artist. Maybe this time around you all can help me. Let's put an APB out on Ernesto and here's to hearing from him soon. Until then my friends, enjoy....

Whatever happened to SEEK?

Does anyone remember the group SEEK? They came out of Atlanta and had that smooth, mellow vibe of soul music that we appreciate? I remember having quite a few conversations with group member Freddie Luster a few years back. This was wayyy before I started podcasting, yeah, back during my days in the "mixtape" game. So what happened to SEEK? Does anyone know or have any leads? If you find them or a point of contact, drop us a line so we can reconnect. In the meantime, listen to "Believe Me" which came from the album "Journey Into Day".

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/  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.

I wanted to end 2010 with a bang. We started the year dedicating the podcast to supporting our beloved musicians, we will finish up in like fashion. No secret now, we keep Marion Lombardi very close as her passion and ear for great sounds is impeccable. London and Marseilles should be proud again as Marion has introduced us to another gem, Nakia Henry!

Nakia's album "Remember Me" is available on iTunes.  We are pleased to offer her single  "Love Letter (He Wants Me To Win)" as a free download. For lovers of Soul, this is the perfect way to round up the best of 2010. We are looking forward to more music from Nakia Henry. Her sound, style, and presence all command our attention here at the DJ Consortium. To borrow a quote from her Twitter page, "I am an active participant in the Divine FLOW. I have a lot to give, too. Remember you, and REMEMBER ME!!" Well said!

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...

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!

What U Said by Rebekka feat Big Pooh

I think we need to get used to hearing from Rebekka Maeland! This rising and shining star from Norway is poised to find her audience and her niche in the music biz. Performing simply as "Rebekka", she has a new label, a new band, and some damn good music. The buzz has started on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. We now have a free download of "What You Said" featuring rapper Big Pooh of Little Brother Fame. We hope you will enjoy this track as much as we have and feel free to share your thoughts and feedback. Stay tuned as we have much more to come.

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.
