Groovin Cover

“Groovin: From Aaliyah to Zhane” is a collection of 90′s R&B jams that were either created or sung by women. From songs that are familiar to ones that rarely got played, this mix showcases the vocal talents and the creativity of that era. I remember watching most of the videos of these songs on The Box (or channel 8 as us Milwaukee folk called it).

So, if names like SWV, Zhane, Mary J, Mokenstef, The Ghost Town DJs, Faith Evans, Erykah Badu, Brandy, Nuttin Nyce, Janet Jackson and Les Nubians ring a bell, hit play and groove out for the next 70 minutes.

It’s clean for radio play (wink wink) so download here.

Samplematic Cover-web

In honor of the 20th Anniversary of Nas’ classic album Illmatic and the fact I’ve been able to see him perform live twice this year, I present “Samplematic”.

This is a showcase of memorable Nas samples and how they were flipped in the songs that used them. The mix spans Nas’ entire career, beginning with Illmatic and ending with Life Is Good, similar to how his live shows have been. Nas has so much great music so it was tough to choose just an hour’s worth of songs, but that’s just a testament to how much he’s meant to hip hop. So whether you are a listener, blunthead, fly lady or prisoner, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this.
