The Afterglow returns with Show 47!

Listen, and checkout the show notes and playlist.

D'Angelo has finally dropped his long-awaited 3rd album "Black Messiah"...

I definitely loved Migs last 2 albums...

It sounds like this one is gonna be just as good as the others...

Listen to the preview for yourself!

I had a little spare time today...

So I hooked up a nice house mix for you :-)

I must say, reading this article has completely changed my view on Spotify in particular and streaming services in general....

Lecrae is probably the biggest hip-hop artist you've never heard of...


First and foremost, this is excellent hip-hop music. Check him out and you'll see why I'm a fan.

This 3rd flashback episode is all about #JAZZ

This 2nd flashback episode is all about the #BrokenBeats. We revisit the #DJMixes from shows 4 and 22. 

In July of 2010, The Afterglow started on the Lounge & Chill channel over at SSRadio. Even though that channel is no longer on the air, the Cool Vibes & Classic Beats have continued...

Wow… Has it really been 4 years of sharing the cool vibes & classic beats?  Yes it has!! 

A fan in Paris suggested that I make the chilled vibes portion of the show available separately...

More personal notes to occupy your eyes while your ears dig the track :-)

I added some personal notes on the production process just to share the experience and to give your eyes something to do while you listen to the track :-)

After an extended layoff, I am firmly back into the music production game. I am still fairly new to working "in the box" on a DAW - yo, I'm old school. I needed to re-tune my studio skills and get proficient in the software (SONAR), so I asked BJ Jones to let me do a house remix to one of the songs from B'Joi's upcoming album.  He was kind enough to send me the a capella to "Waterfall"....

Show #44

Welcome to my 44th set of Cool Vibes & Classic Beats! 

I want to shine a special spotlight on the new album from Mahogany Jones - “Pure Vol. 1” - A project that delves deeply into life issues facing so many of the women we love and live with. And it features several vocalists, emcees, producers and poets from Detroit! We’ll hear 3 tracks from this album in Phase 1

Phase 1 also features a heavy dose of dope lyricism from Andy Mineo and SPZRKT. King’s Dream Entertainment is also well represented with hot tracks from John Givez, Ruslan, and Dream Junkies. We have beats from Potatohead People and a track from Feelin’ Music’s Dilla Tribute album. We also get into new music from Los Chicos Altos, Bosq, and the new Jalapeno Funk Vol. 5 compilation. Youngblood Brass Band closes out Phase 1 with their rendition of Chaka Khan’s “Ain’t Nobody”. 

The DJ Mix of Phase 2 features the stellar remix skills of Opolopo. We open and close with tracks from him. The mix also includes tracks from DJ Spinna, Los Chicos Altos, Richard Earnshaw, Omegaman and more! You’ll also hear another track from Jalapeno Funk Vol. 5. 

The chilled vibes of Phase 3 feature music from Robert Glasper, a stellar remake from Natalie Lauren, Music Box Lord Echo, Jeanne Jolly, STWO and more!

As I combed through my archives recently, I realized that left in the aftermath of my indecisiveness were several very good, unreleased dance tracks. I figured “why not share some good music?” So to you dance music lovers, I present a collection of tracks that should have come to you much sooner...

Here are some extras for the music in show #21. Check 'em out!


Here's the playlist for show 21.

The 1-year anniversary of The Afterglow is coming up very soon. I need your input.

Show #9 is finally up and ready to download.

In phase 1 we heard 2 songs from the incomparable JAZZANOVA. We also heard the latest release from LOUIE VEGA. These guys are some of the best in the biz so check out those links to hear more from them. You'll also find a Jazzanova video below. We also heard a great song from SISTARS. I played a remix of "Inspirations", you can watch the video to the original below. You'll also find the video to VIKTER DUPLAIX's "Electric Love" below as well.  

See the whole post for more links and videos!

Phase 3 featured the title track from the new Andreya Triana album "Lost Where I Belong". You can watch the video below. Phase 3 also featured "No Words" from Janita. There's no "official" music video for that song, so I chose to include the video for "I Miss You". She is that rare artist who is as pleasing to the eye as she is to the ear. Enjoy...
