Another one of my top 10 songs of 2014 is “Do It” by Tuxedo, a collaboration between Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One.
DJ Harvey takes the perfect disco funk jam, “Gotta Keep On Trying” by Tenderness, strips it down, and stretches it out to build the excitement and energy to epic proportions.
Yesterday Elvis Presley would have turned 80 years old. I coincidentally pulled this 1997 Sol Brothers 12″ single off the shelf, put it on the turntable, and reveled in its late-90s big beat brilliance.
Fort Knox Five drop a free heater from their upcoming album, this party rocker with Raashan Ahmad feels old school while the beats and groove are both forward thinking and classic.
On Sunday, D’Angelo’s new LP, Black Messiah appeared. Check out this first taste, a track called “Sugah Daddy.”
“i” by Kendrick Lamar uses a backing track built around a re-recorded sample from the Isley Brothers 1973 hit “That Lady”, which equals some serious funk.
To celebrate KC’s amazing rotary mixer find, he mixed together some tunes and called it Rotary Connection (not to be confused with the awesome band of the same name).
On this Thanksgiving, I bring you Earth, Wind & Fire’s “Gratitude”, recorded live from a 1981 concert.
Live, Mother’s Finest couldn’t be beat. Here’s one of my favorite songs, “Piece of the Rock”
There are certain songs that everyone likes, and I mean everyone. “Proud Mary” performed by Ike and Tina Turner is one of them.
