Today is big day for me, like the first day at school for a baby boy. In fact, after 3 years of blogging, I am about to introduce into the biogsphere my first mix. Well…mix maybe is too much, let’s call it selection, at most a podcast. That should be definitely more appropriate. Since I am not a DJ and I am not experienced in any music software as well, you have to be merciful with my first “short and imperfect” attempt. Yes, I am covering my self, you got it! Anyway, your feedback is highly appreciated. Let’s go…
1 Outatime Orchestra – Back to the Future
My trademark, what else?
2 Ella Fitzgerald – Get Ready
She is god damn groovy in this track, pure energy, pure class
3 Ernie Hines – Our Generation
A classic break in an all-consuming tune. Pete Rock would approve my choice!
4 Mandrill – Symphonic Revolution
I am slowing down a little bit here with this nice and smooth ballad. Oh yes…I love Mandrill
5 Booker T & The MG’s – Rinky-Dink
Parapara-papaparapara…a great instrumental from the Stax’s house studio band.
This song put me in a good mood but you know…
6 Booker T & The MG’s feat Judy Clay – Children Don’t Get Weary
…after the laughs comes the tears. Same band, different feeling: what a dramatic song this time
7 El Michels Affair – Glaciers of Ice
My seeds growin his seeds marry his seeds, that’s how we keep Wu-Tang money all up in the family
8 The Mighty Diamonds – Get Out of My Life Woman
From soul/funk to reggae, this song aint nothin’ but the perfect hook!
9 Glen Washington – Jah Glory
Let’s rise and shine and give Jah the glory, damn one of my favorite reggae songs of all time
10 Jah Mali – Long Long (Fade Away Riddim)
Jah Mali is simply perfect on this riddim, his voice is absolutely neat and sharp. You got to love this guy
11 Johnny Osbourne – Truth and Rights
Render your hearts and not your garments…what can I say about a song that start like this?
12 Alton Ellis and Tupac – Nothin Like Rockstady
This combination made my eyes bleed
13 Il Mago – One Love Remix
From the M&J crew, a dope remix!
