One of my go- to records as of late is Suite for Max Brown by Jeff Parker and the New Breed. Today I broke out the MPC and chopped up some of the drums. There are so many open parts of this record to sample from. Thought I test out the dusty fingers and chop some breaks.. I believe it’s Makaya McCraven on drums. Shout outs to Intl’ Anthem.
Here we go! A new batch of positive gems to help me/you get through the day. How are you by the way? I’ve been hanging with my pup, reading the Death of WCW, listening to lots of NTS Radio, Dublab, MBE and various other stations. Also taking lots of cool pics. Okay, hit play and peep some of my favorite gems that lift my spirit. Hope the lift yours.
Children Of Zeus – No Sunshine Tomorrow
UK’s Children Of Zeus struck with this one some time ago but it always gives me the chills. Feels timely.
Bruna Mendez – Corpo Miragem
Sultry, soulful and beautiful. Can not get enough of this clip + song.
Contour – Stop Trying to Be God (Travis Scott Cover)
Hailing out of South Carolina, this kid is creating his own lane. I’m a fan. He has new music out but this cover of Travis Scott is all the vibes I need today.
Joe Arroyo – Rebellion
I remember visiting Colombia late last year and hearing this record through out Bogotà. It’s always been a dance floor killer here in LA but to hear it in it’s roots powerful. This one never gets old.
Yusef Lateef – Love Theme From Spartacus
I know children that were born and couples that had their first dance to this beautiful gem. I remember hitching a ride to San Diego with Carlos Niño to meet brother Lateef. He was a true humble spirit.
