The Afterglow - Show 58 

Welcome to show 58. A new sampling of COOL VIBES & CLASSIC BEATS just for you. 

You’ll hear a strong West London vibe in this one with tunes from Kaidi Tatham, Mark de Clive-Lowe, and WheelUp. (I know MdCL isn’t from London, but he was a big part of the movement) 

We also have some classic hip-hop flavor from The Ruffcats and a dope new track from Cephas. 

Our DJ Mix is a nice set of Lounge & Nu-Disco. 

Our Chilled Vibes feature cool jazz throwbacks from Herbie Hancock and David Sanborn and more! 

Enjoy…

Music I’m Feelin’: Tall Black Guy - “Airplane Mode” 

In recent years, the beats genre has grown very popular - and very crowded. There are few producers who have managed to develop a signature sound that stands out in the crowd. Tall Black Guy is one of them. I first discovered him back in 2010 on his Tall Black Guy vs. Michael Jackson album (still available on Bandcamp and still dope!). Over the last decade he has continued to develop his signature soulful blend of hard-hitting drums blended with creative sampling and live instrumentation into a thing of…

New Music! Memoirs of a Beatmaker, Vol. 1 

 

For the next month or 2 I am taking some time to focus on developing my sound as a funk music artist. I’ve decided to postpone the funk releases I had planned for a couple of months while I work on a more consistent sound. While I’m doing that, I felt it was a good time to release something I’ve been sitting on for a while. 

Once upon a time, ya boy was a beatmaker. Back in the 90’s, there wasn’t a market for instrumental beat albums like there is now. So like most…

New Music! Electric Maestro - Love for the 106 - Part 1 

 

One of the great things about modern music production is the abundance and availability of affordable synths. It really is great. But sometimes having 10,000 options can be a bit overwhelming. So, I recently decided that I would challenge myself to produce some tracks using only 1 synth. It’s amazing how much creativity one can find within pre-set limits. You can expect to see more of these from me in the future! 

I’m starting off with what is probably my…

Music I'm Feelin': "Soul's Acrylic" by A.I. The Anomaly 

We are definitely in a season where the voices of women are finally being heard - and hip-hop is no exception.
 
That is definitely good thing.
 
Unfortunately, if you let the mainstream tell it, the only thing of value a female emcee brings to the table is a big booty and top-notch sexual skills. 

With her 3rd full-length LP, A.I. The Anomaly continues to prove that the mainstream is lying to you. "Soul's Acrylic" is the work of an artist who has learned how to dig into the depths of her own soul, extract the…
