Show 44 Notes & Playlist

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!
