thought it was about time for my first installment of Heavy Rotation.
every once in awhile I'll be posting a list of what's currently making the roundy round on the turntables & in the portable (still usin the ol' cd playa. no bling bling debt inducing ipod here my friends)
Links are to artist /label sites or to online retailers that have stream audio samples.
two wonderful resources for buying Broken Beat/ Nujazz /NuGroove/ Leftfield Electonica/ rare groove, funk, jazz D'n'B, etc. are
Dusty Groove Records
- an unbelievably in depth searchable site. ail order or in store pickup if
you happen to live in Chicago
- you need a $25 a year membership to buy from here, but you won't miss a thing,
get 10% off, and have first picks of new arrivals.
first comes the pedestrian soundtracks...
what i've been listening to most on my walks. in no particular order
1-stateless: the art of no state
lovely electronic soul & future boogie
2-afronaught: shaping fluid
early broken beat spaceout. a sweet ebay find
the perfect soundtrack to the springtime rollercoaster of love
4-Mark De Clive-Lowe presents: Melodious Beats Volume 1
an outstanding collection of Mark De Clive-Lowe singles, remixes, and collaborations.
my current favorite
5- my April dj mix. (maybe i'll get it online sometime)
spinnin on da tables...
1. Mark De Clive-Lowe: Chocolate Sunday
2. Swell Session vs. Ernesto's : Let Me Decide ( 3.7M mp3 link from label site)
