The Blog Galaxy is expanding so rapidly that you will never have the opportunity to visit it all, even if you travel at light speed with the USS Enterprise and your first officer is a bizarre guy from Vulcan with strange abilities.
We, poor human beings with a limited lifetime, gotta help each other to find out the dopest spots in the Galaxy…here is our contribution, we expect yours!
Let’s see what is really hot out there:
Frank Conakry is keep blessing us with some incredible afro-beat, funk and soul. His blog is basically what I was looking for since I came back from my trip in Africa. He is (in his own words) a vinyl archaeologist of African Funk Records. Dig his site is a must for all the African music lovers. The last mix is superb: Big Beats, Sweet Talks & Psychedelic Aliens, don’t you dare to miss it.
Mr Funky 16 Corners does not need any presentation. At least not from me. The quality of his page is simply unquestionable. I just want to suggest you one post among others: The Temptations – Lonely Lonely Man Am I, is an outstanding tune, go check it.
Recently i’m listening a lot to Benji B Deviation show. If you are one of the few who don’t know it yet, be sure to check this show about Underground Soul. The awesome thing about Benji B’s selections is that you’ll never expect that so many good music is being produced right now around the world. Every nice thing comes out in soulful music, he has it. All flavors are covered: soul, jazz, hip hop, house, electronic…This show has built up his own distinctive sound: this is what makes a selector leave its mark in history. Highly recommended, trustme.
If you want to learn from an experienced crate digger and dj, go find Soulman’s spot. He got some interesting stories and a bunch of rare music. His latest post “A message to the young people” is words of wisdom. Check out his work, classic underground matherial.
Ok, i think for this time it is enough: you got some serious stuff to listen to. But what do you do while you listen? Let’s go have a trip in the lines and colours blog, a very intersting and inspiring place about art and illustration. Some pleasure for your eyes too….
