R&B: Maimouna Youssef – “Stay” (Prod. By Joe D) [Video]

“These are hard times to find love…”

All ‘cuffing season’ jokes aside, Maimouna Youssef is right. Feel the words and experience the visualization as you hear the love[sick] song that expresses her longing for love; a struggle against her core being to become the kind of woman a man she longs for could love. This is “Stay” (produced by Joe D). Deep.

And she is some kind of sexy. That don’t hurt!

R&B/Soul: Esta – “Can’t Wait” featuring SPZRKT

They say Patience is a virtue, but some things in life are just hard to wait on.  Like waiting on food at a restaurant when you are hungry or waiting in line to get into a popular club.  One thing I know a lot of men can agree on is they can’t wait to see that special lady in their lives if they have said lady.

Well the DJ/Producer Esta (Soulection DJ) teams up with singer SPZRKT explaining this nicely with the track you guessed it named “Can’t Wait”.  This track will have guys thinking they can sing to their ladies.  I suggest you just play the song by Esta (featuring SPZRKT). Fellas trust me, I already attempted and the lady enjoyed the song more! Check out SPZRKT new album BONFIRE.

Vinyl Destination | Ep. 24 “Do Over – NZ” On Season 2 With The Magnificent DJ Jazzy Jeff (Video)

DJ Jazzy Jeff spins at one of his favorite events, The Do Over in Auckland, New Zealand, in this episode of Vinyl Destination.

D’Angelo – Brown Sugar (@KingMost Redirection)

7c3e4c3d0e616e793dd9d1ab5f9c570c

Sexy but sped up. Yep. Punched up, break-and-kick beat’d out… Never thought you’d hear “Brown Sugar” (by D’Angelo) re-done like this. Bet. Dope though.

With all projects rooted in diversity, Mixologi teams up with DJ Kingmost (SF) for a redirection of D’Angelo’s classic “Brown Sugar,” blended with the sounds of Lord Shorty, the godfather of Soca. This remix is truly the best of both worlds.

Alternative/Soul: Willow Smith – “9” feat. SZA

Well, well. Willow isn’t whipping her hair on this one. This is grown folks music. Quietly steering for calmer musical depths, Willow has SZA joining her on a… dare we say… much more sensual-sounding track. Definitely more grown up. Worth a listen. This is “9.” Get Will & Jada Smith’s baby girl’s current EP entitled “III.”

James Brown – “I Feel Good” (El. Train Remix)

Do you know your James Brown music when you hear it? Okay, well hold on. Throw that sound you have stored in your music memory bank for “I Feel Good,” but go find your dancing shoes. Alright, dancing shoes aren’t mandatory; but give this very different-sounding take on this Mr. Dynamite hit (submitted by hip Brit El. Train) a listen.

So my dad (Mr. I Know Everything About Music) said I should be playing a 10 minute James Brown track as an intro to all my sets. This one’s not quite 10 minutes but it is the legend himself or my interpretation of him…
El. Train

Bonus… You can download a copy for FREE below (stream for FREE above).

R&B/Alternative: Coultrain – “Kiss Of Death”

Off the “Side Effex Of Make​-​Believe; divided for love’s sake” EP from Coultrain, this is “Kiss Of Death.” Don’t sleep. It’s a bit of an unusual take on R&B, but give it a good listen. Words by Aaron M. Frison. Music composed by Stoney Rock. Backing vocals by Dharma Jean. With a title like “Kiss Of Death,” of course the St. Louis crooner is singing pain – about a woman.

Rochelle Jordan – “There You Go” (Prod. By KLSH)

Nice one from RoJo’s album “1021” (out now). This “There You Go” leak… more like… oozes a sensual vibe over an up-tempo sexy beat. Something sung sexy by someone sexy. Take a listen. Look at the cover. Hear, see and agree.

Vinyl Destination | Ep. 22 “Man Vs. Bug” On Season 2 With The Magnificent DJ Jazzy Jeff (Video)

Another leg on the Asian tour. Macau is beautiful! Keep it moving… Thailand. Keep it moving… Bangkok, Thailand, in the midst of massive political protest marches; still Jeff and the rest bring the party. Still, keep it moving. This leg, though, is another somethin’ altogether… like a BUG’S leg – a “Man vs. Bug” challenge (um… interesting?). Yeah. Just watch above.

NPR: ‘Tiny Desk Concerts’ Series Welcomes T-Pain… Singing Without Auto-Tune Effects (Video)

Definitely a different look at T-Pain. By that, meaning a different sound of music accompanying the words that are coming out of his mouth. Just listen and watch the above Tiny Desk Concert T-Pain did for NPR. This is 13 minutes of some of Pain’s greatest and latest hits WITHOUT AUTO-TUNE.

“This is weird as hell for me.”

Had three days off… I gotta play somewhere!

Then Jeff the crew is off and running again to Singapore, after getting some KFC. Then Tokyo, Japan. Good times on the rip-and-run-and-fun tour underway. Oh… and there’s barbecue… Korean barbeque!

R&B/Soul: Denitia x Sene – “Runnin.”

(Wonder why they put periods after their song titles. Kinda… Oh well…)

Another delightfully successful soul music experiment that Denitia & Sene decided to call “Runnin.” Loving the echo’ey way the track and vocals mingle. Deep lyrics.

Since nobody who’s lived has died
There’s always something left behind
Why are you afraid to fell
We couldn’t fail unless we try

Please stop runnin

DENITA X SENE – RUNNIN
