I had a great time putting together this mix of covers to share with y'all. I've been told this mix has something for everyone and I'm glad it's able to connect in that fashion! All of my favorite genres are represented and most have been flipped on their heads like Kandace Springs' version of Lauryn Hill's Ex-Factor. I played it a little loose this time so some aren't straight covers but have been heavi...

I visited Dusty Groove today and was unhappy to see Jose James’ Billie Holiday cover album, Yesterday I Had The Blues had already sold out. I was able to listen to some snippets on iTunes but digi downloads are not available in the States yet. His version of Body and Soul is amazing! I’ve been listening to a lot of Jazz lately and covers of standards occurs frequently within this genre. This installment of Covers falls heavy on jaz...

If mimicry truly is the sincerest format of flattery, then a cover song should certainly qualify as one of the purest ways to convey it. We looked around for some of the best examples and came across a plethora, so many in fact that we couldn’t possibly use them all in one set. Some tracks stay close to the original format, taking just slight liberties, others push the boundaries a bit more, while a few are tried and true staples r...

Around this time is when I get inspired to do a social justice mix in thew vein of my Mental Evolution series. I figured Episode 002 of On My Hard Drive would be a good place to set some songs I would definitely include if I were to do a mix soon. I've also been mining my Hard Drive and came across Bilal's shelved 2004 album, Love For Sale. This album is too good for people to miss due to being unaware of it's existence...

I left my iPod in the house Friday night as I was rushing to DJ the Julie Dexter/Jaafar concert. Choosing not to listen to the radio, I blindly selected a CD from my Jeep’s console. It was unmarked, so when the intro began I nearly crashed my Jeep because I hadn’t heard this mix in years.

This mix was created around 2005-2006 and is a sexy soulful number featuring artists like Spacek, Cottonbelly and Silhouette Brown. Gypsy Eyes wa...

In 1996 I was fiercely committed to East Coast Hip Hop and discovering the breaks used to create it. I had a friend who worked at a local music shop at a strip mall perpendicular to my job, and during my scheduled break I would visit, kick the Willie BoBo and in turn be laced with whatever I could carry out. I remember one evening, while staging the purchasing of a large amount of Hip Hop and Breaks, seeing a white cardboard displa...

As a child I spent countless hours glued in front of the television watching videos on MTV, but when we finally got BET in '84 I was introduced to a crew of Smooth Operators that would have a long-lasting effect on me and legions of others. Appearing in constant rotation was one of the most aesthetically pleasing acts, unbound by genre, that continue to confound music lovers to this day. Was Sade Folk, Soul, Jazz, RnB, a combin...

Much love to my brother, DJ BlaqT for offering me the opportunity to rock a guest mix during the launch of Ubuntu Beats Radio FM in South Africa on his sOulfanaticS frequencies show. I pretty much throw the kitchen sink at the listener for an hour with an eclectic mix of breaks, hip hop, soul & remixes.

I hope you enjoy the mix but make sure you support and listen to UBRFM.net, the only station in South Africa playing independe...

On My Hard Drive is a podcast/web series that allows me to discuss the discoveries I make as I take an involved listen to the music on my hard drive.
Welcome to the first episode where I briefly discuss film scores & soundtracks that landed in my inbox from some of my favorite Jazz musicians. I will also show how the latest Jazz is Dead compilation featuring Roy Ayers fits into this overall theme.
On My Hard Drive Episode 1 was...

I feel whenever they are behind the turntables, it should be the DJ's desire for the crowd to sound travel, to literally be taken on a musical journey. Directing their attention to awesome treats and helping them discover cuts never considered all while keeping the flock away from wack jams like a glorified tour guide should be the DJ's objective. So, this is like a little time traveling as well, eh? I believe my entry in t...

I honestly had no clue what to include on my mix for Discogs. I had an idea of course, but was unsure of exactly how I wanted to present/express myself. I've done a boatload of Nu Soul/Hip Hop mixes, and several mixes of the new jazz artists on the scene and didn't wanna paint myself in a corner artistically. When I think of Discogs, vinyl immediately comes to mind so I decided to start with a funk jazz/rare grooves set and...

The inspiration:
Born and raised in my city, Sun Ra is a constant muse and musical icon whose philosophy included thinking outside of the box and not being confined to another’s ideas. Coupled with the increase of albums being hailed as classics or failures within hours of release I imagined a musical listening society that allowed an album a reasonable incubation period before bestowing a designation.

This Listening Society would s...

R.I.P. Dilla. Since Jay Dee’s passing in 2006, DJs have been releasing mixes/compilations of his music nonstop. Normally, what you’ll hear are more of the hip hop cuts, but I wanted to showcase more of the soulful tracks he’s produced. We interviewed Dwele shortly after Dilla passed and he said, “You’ve probably nodded your head to more Dilla tracks than you realize,” so make sure you check out his discography. Enjoy!
