DJ Yogi – “Funk Fridays Demo” (Mixtape)

You know what you need for the holiday cookout? I mean, you probably do know what you need in the way of food & drink (and stuff to serve in and on)… But don’t forget the tunes! Got a dope mix if you are taking suggestions…

This! Why I love The Remix show. Best thing on Friday late night (e.g. early Saturday morning) radio in the ATL. Get ’em DJ Yogi!

DJ Jazzy Jeff x Mick Boogie – “Summertime Vol. 10” (Mixtape)

DJ Jazzy Jeff and Mick mixes… they make a summer a Summer! Spinning this one at a weekend barbecue (or anytime) is a Capital idea!

‪Wow… 10 straight summers of that retro, soulful, cool out, bbq eating, suntan getting, beach chair sitting, rosé drinking, two miles an hour, so everybody can see you music.‬ Straight from DJ Jazzy Jeff & MICK, “‪Summertime Vol 10.‬”

Georgia Anne Muldrow – “VWETO II” (Album)

Los Angeles’ own Georgia Anne Muldrow’s name has been spoken in the same breath as Nina Simone, Alice Coltrane, Erykah Badu, and Ella Fitzgerald. Been a minute since we’ve had anything up on her here, but we got something now. Check it!

India Arie – “Steady Love” (Video)

The number of people who would argue with me when I declared India Irie and David Banner the ‘Most Adorable Keep-It-Real & GOALS Couple EVER’… absolutely ZERO! I am not going to even do one search to see if they are actually ‘shipped’ in real life. Nope.

I am just going to live in the beautiful moments this video creates. And what a wonderful song. And that warrior-in-the-streets x king-in-the-sheets yearning… AND all that body (ma THICK y’all, woowee!) and bright smiling that India is hitting us with… Maaaan, we gone ALL get pregnant!

Check out “Steady Love” off India’s LP “Worthy” (out now).

James Corden Welcomes Céline Dion To ‘Carpool Karaoke’ (Video)

I have to believe Céline Dion has the most fun spirit, I mean that “Ashes” video she did for “Deadpool 2” alone, right? But that is also a beautiful song, like most all her work.

Well, put the fabulous, fun, uber-talent in a ‘Carpool Karaoke’ why dont’cha, James. I am here for it!

James Corden heads to Las Vegas for a Carpool Karaoke made for CBS primetime and calls on Céline Dion to help him get through town. In addition to singing her classics, Céline proves she has a song for any moment, James teaches Céline “Baby Shark” and the two give away pairs of Céline’s precious shoes. And stay for a Titanic-sized end to their afternoon together.

Flying Lotus – “More” feat. Anderson .Paak (Video)

Of all the things about this… the anime visual, the perfect fit and vibe with .Paak… the one with the most ‘wow’ factor is that we get new music from Flying Lotus. And, yeah, we already knew it was gonna be dope. Bet the upcoming album will be, too.

DJ Yogi – A Soulful Tape (Insomniac Show #53) [Mixtape]

He’s back! Well, he never left. To be honest, I have been lax in keeping up with the output of the homie DJ Yogi (Yogi, Yogi, Yogi). My bad. But dude stays putting up dope mix shows like this on the Mixcloud. If you are on that, you should follow him there. One of the best on that platform #RESPECT #ALLCAPS #nocap

Anderson .Paak – “Come Home” feat. Andre 3000

This is the collab that will draw most heads to the “Ventura” LP. My opinion. But probably facts by now. In fact, I’m betting you are going to give this a spin just to hear 3 Stacks go in on the feature for Anderson.

NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series Presents: H.E.R. (Video)

A whole lot less stand-offish and enigmatic for this Tiny Desk set, as she should be, H.E.R. treats the intimate gathering of souls to warm blend of R&B and Soul, peppered with moments of Hip-Hop adjacent styled delivery. Enjoy!

Cool shades. Cute singer 😉

Amerigo Gazaway Teases “The Miseducation Of Eunice Waymon” Mashup Mixtape (Video)

Amerigo Gazaway strikes mashes again! This time Nina Simone (born Eunice Waymon) and L-Boogie get the treatment. The result: We get the treat!

With his latest Soul Mates Project, Amerigo Gazaway imagines a studio session between The High Priestess of Soul, Nina Simone, and living legend, Lauryn Hill. Continuing the “collaborations that never were” theme of his previous releases, the producer seamlessly connects the dots between Hip-Hop and the genre’s predecessor, Soul. Watch the album’s teaser vid above, stream/download the first single “Feeling Good” below and look out for the full project in the coming weeks!

R&B/Soul: Maxwell – “Shame” (Video)

New music and visuals. Soul-stirring, high concept, purposefully ambiguous. From Maxwell. So it’s kinda par for the course. Enjoy the experience…
