We had a great set this past week on All Day Play FM..as we continued digging in the crates and playing some great jams spanning all types of soul and funk genres.. We went digging in the crates and kicked things off with a classic joint from Berkeley based Digital Underground affiliated Mod Squad ‘I Want U 2 C‘. Its off the hard to find ‘People’s Park’ album…I wonder what ever happened to those guys, they were way ahead of their time.. They reminded me of Digable Planets keeping in mind I heard them b4 DP.. Rocked another crate digging classic ‘Educated Fool‘ by crooner Billy Storm of the Valiants..Don’t sleep on Mr Storm..
Bronx River Parkway, Ray Barretto and Sound Defects continue to be staples in my most recent playlists.. Nothing beats timeless music.
The highlight for this week was my remix of Jimmy Ruffin‘s classic ‘What’s Become of the Broken Hearted‘.. In this remix we rocked the eulogy for Malcolm X as recited by the late great actor Ozzie Davis..
Finally found good digital copies of former Def Jam acts Downtown Science..featuring Sam Server and Boscoe.. It was a relief to finally rock a few songs of their one and only album that wasn’t on an overplayed, low sounding scratchy vinyl..
Here’s this weeks playlist and link to the show Enjoy
