Captain Planet is one of my favorite producers these days. On his latest single, “In the Gray,” he cooks up a viciously catchy reggae instrumental, but for me it Brit Lauren’s infectious vocals that make the tune.

Monster Rally is Cleveland native Ted Feighan; he produces sample-based tropical pop. Here’s “Orchids,” a track from his last album, Return to Paradise. I think he makes the best music to work to.

Ernesto Djédjé was a huge star on the Ivory Coast in his day and listening to “Ziboté,” it makes perfect sense. Catchy vocals, great instrumentation, groovy rhythms, and—although rare for West African records from the 70s—the recording is crystal clear and expertly mixed. One look at the cover and you know it’s gonna be funky.

“Long Division” is The Aislers Set at their best. Taken from their 1998 debut album on Slumberland Records, Terrible Things Happen, the song is pure pop perfection, complete with handclaps.

A lame attempt to reorganize my records this past weekend quickly devolved into an extended session of listening to forgotten gems hidden in my vinyl stash. One of my favorite De La Soul cuts, “Sh.Fe.MCs” was released on the rare promo-only Clear Lake Audiotorium EP in 1994.
