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.
