I’m trying to get into the groove again, so it’s going to take some time. But these songs help me get through the day. I hope they do the same for you.

New Stuff: “Brookzill”

Dearest earbudders, while we wait for Digable Planets to get on the good foot and make a comeback, member Ladybug Mecca has preoccupied herself with DJ/Producer king Prince Paul, collaborating in a group called Brookzill (“Brooklyn and Brazil”). Combining Afro-Brazilian rhythms, hip hop, jazz, and all around good stuffs, this is a band I am seriously looking forward to listening to when their album drops October 7th. While we wait for this already predicted musical masterpiece, check out their first single, “Saudade Songbook” with Count Bass D. My ears are excited.

Retro Dance: “Lost Without You” by Hifi Sean (Feat. Paris Grey)

Every so often I get introduced to a song that is a throwback to my time in the 90s clubs. The atmosphere was freeing, the vibe was fantastic, and no one cared about selfies. The beats were everlasting, the bass was on point, and we all sang along like no one cared. Music is what drove the emotion and feeling. This is one of those songs that really make me smile. I look forward to the album TRUCK, that will be released in September. If it’s anything like this song, I know I won’t be disappointed. So sit back, or jump up, turn it up and let yourself go.

Dance Gooey Goodness: DENM’s “Under Pressure”

I don’t know too much about the artist named DENM. I do know two things. I can shake my booty to his single, “Under Pressure,” and the bass line that kicks in at :40 is irresistibly fun and hypnotic. I think the Santa Monica, CA, artist knows what it takes to make you want to lose yourself in the music for the summer. The song reminds of a throwback from the 90s dance scene with its sparse arrangement. It’s beautiful, and not too over the top vocally. It’s a perfect summer jam to listen to whether you’re getting up in the morning or even winding down in the evening with a glass of wine. Trust me folks, this one is a keeper. And like DENM, I feel like I want to dance here forever while listening.

New Podcast!! #33 Music … Makes the People

Hello fellow earbudders,

I decided to do a little something different with this podcast. I decided to split the show up into three parts. First part is just dance, second moreso uptempo r&b stuff, and the last part is a cosmic slop of goodness and randomness. Just sit back, listen, and enjoy.

What Would Hurricane Sandy Play?

Alright folks..

As you all know, hurricane Sandy hit us hard. Mother Nature as I’ve said before wasn’t gettin’ any so she decided to unleash her frustration on us. So I made a mix of songs I would enjoy listening to in a hurricane. While it’s almost 3 in the a.m., I’m going to post it anyway. So listen and enjoy 🙂

By the way, you will not hear my voice on this mix. It’s just a continuous mix, one song after the next. Ya happy now? Good! I hope all of my peeps here on the east coast are ok. If you’re up, and have power, listen and shake your bon bon. If  you don’t have power, then let your friends text you about this mix and when you do, download it or stream it.

Rollin’ In DC – Adele Live at 9:30 Club

I remember the first time I saw Adele.

It was on VH1..back when THEY used to show videos instead of MTV. It was for a video called “Chasing Pavements.” I thought it was such a throwback song, the sweeping orchestra, her melodies…it was such a beautiful song from beginning to end. I wondered who was this adorable woman with the voice from God. I was captivated by that voice. It reminded me of something Doris Day would sing. Or Dionne Warwick. The video was cute, but that voice was long lasting. I instantly became hooked. Fast forward some time later and she won a Grammy for “Best New Artist.” There’s usually a curse behind this you know. It seems like whoever wins this award fades into oblivion lol. Well not everyone, but in recent years. You wonder what happened to them. So you will understand my worry when Adele won. A voice like hers shouldn’t fade into oblivion. It’s just too damn good.

Fast forward a loooong time later and she returned for her long awaited album, 21, named after her age at the time she wrote the songs. Now at 22 she is conquering the world. One place she graciously conquered was Washington, DC, at our well known 9:30 club. A sold out show, it was expected to be..dare I say..EPIC. And I really don’t like to use that word. But it’s the one word that described tonight. Dressed in her famed black ensemble, she charmed the crowd from the first note, to the last. Adele was there to command attention, and she had us. She had us from the very start. She sang the first minute from off stage as her band played along. To hear her voice was just unbelievable. To be in the SAME building as she was..well..that was truly a dream come true.

Once entering the stage, the crowd erupted. It was unreal. So many screams of love and affection, to which she was very overwhelmed. She joked with the audience about her ex boyfriend, the topic of 21, and how he affected her. It was great to see her act silly and tell jokes and give a little insight as to what she was going through at the time of writing the second LP. I couldn’t get enough.. From “Chasing Pavements” to her version of “To Make You Feel My Love” there were resounding cheers of joy and and jeers towards her ex boyfriend. Her voice was absolutely phenomenal. The range she carries gives me the chills.. The crowd really participated, singing along on just about every song. One standout, and there were many was “Set Fire to the Rain.” And I wasn’t the only one in love with that song. Again, the audience’s participation was just as fierce sounding as Adele. And she ate it up and grinned from ear to ear at the love and adoration from all of us.

She is just that good.

The finale, “Rolling in the Deep” the first single from the second album, pretty much brought the house down, built it up, and brought it up again. People were shouting singing, so loudly that at one point the crowd drowned HER out. She held the microphone out so that the audience could sing the background vocal “you’re gonna wish you…never had met me…tears are gonna fall…rolling in the deep.” And if I do say so myself, we all could have totally been her back up singers. She laughed. We laughed. We cried at the emotional too. “Someone Like You” was an emotional song about finding out her ex found another woman. She was devastated. You can hear it all over the song, yet she sounded optimistic in wishing him all the best. As I looked around, couples huddled, and a few teared. A good time was had by all.

So thank you Adele for blessing us with your presence. A fantastic show, by an even more fantastic woman. Thank you.

And. Not to toot my own horn. But I love that she started her tour – her first night – in Washington, DC. Beat THAT NYC.
