XL Middleton – Slapped Witta Velvet Glove

I would like to imagine that you knew when you read the title of this track that this was gonna be some ish! I did and XL Middleton does not disappoint with some warmed up, leftover funk from last year’s Tap Water. Please don’t take that to mean, this jam is tepid – It’s more..

Cro Magnon x Jin – A Peacemaker

Cro Magnon x Jin – A Peacemaker

When Da Brat proclaimed she was baptized in the funk, I wonder if she was aware just how far its gospel had traveled. Missionaries and converts are everywhere, even in the Land of the Rising Sun! Funk trio Cro Magnon have returned, this time joined by highly acclaimed DJ Jin to release new album,..

The Hue – Fiyah Flies featuring Chris Daddy Dave & Derrick Hodge

The Hue – Fiyah Flies featuring Chris Daddy Dave & Derrick Hodge

The Hue is the combination of Houston crews HISD and Radio Galaxy, and their debut full length successfully harnesses their collective energy.  I would describe their sound as the point where Sun Ra and Sa-Ra meet, a perfect union of Space Jazz and modern, cosmic grooves perfect..

Sam IRL – Brothers

Sam IRL – Brothers

Sam IRL’s debut full length is a catalogue of style, showcasing the many ways he can entice you to move over 12 tracks. Raw Land is deep and soulful throughout, however Sam really hits my sweet spot when his Jazz chops come into play and everything gets smoothed out but remains upbeat enough..

Maylight – How Soon is Now?

Maylight – How Soon is Now?

We really enjoyed the Maylight remix of Bilal’s The Flow, and knew their album would be released soon but had no idea they were this smooth. How Soon Is Now is a perfect example of their blend of Jazz/Soul with Lizzy Parks summoning a Sade vibe that’s sure to motivate listeners to..

Blap Deli – The Voodoo

One of the many difficulties of managing a site that accepts music submissions is determining the right time to press stop or next on a track. A song may have an impressive change or an additional movement that arrives later in the track to reveal the artist’s overall intent and change..

RihXnna – Jamez Joint (OSAGE Remix) [Download]

Can you recall a time when listening to a new album and a particularly good track ended so suddenly, you thought the CD might be defective? I remember Jill Scott’s 2007 The Real Thing: Words and Sounds Vol. 3 having several treats that were just too short, Crown Royal was one but the last track,..

Earth, Wind & Fire – Runnin’ (Volt Age Edit) [Download]

The UKNOWY crew has been cranking out some heaters as of late, but this edit of EWF in remembrance of Maurice White is white-hot! Created from only the first 22 seconds of Runnin’ from 1977’s All ‘N All, Germany’s Volt Age extends the track to prolong the boogie. If groovin’..
