Root Beer Lollipops?

Root Beer Lollipops?

Izzat a Root Beer Lollipop shes sucking on, WTF? Nasty lollipops aside, I found a delicious treat on this 1975 Event Records album, Yum Yum. Feed Me Your Love is completely contrary to the Fatback Band sound, which is hailed as “…one of the first to make ‘disco music’ a force..

Songs I Wish i Could Play When Im DJing…

…sounds crazy, but, err, um, ahhh, down South where i hail, if it doesnt have that bottom or if it’s not “familiar neo soul” you’re likely to lose your weekly gig.

Liberation Time!

Liberation Time!

Yesterday I got my hands on the new Badu cut, The Healer. I must admit, initially I wasnt (read: am not ) moved by her first single, Honey. The Healer, though, is the anti-commercial single that i was looking for, AND IT DOESNT DISAPPOINT. Produced by Madlib, it has that underwater esoteric vibe that..
