Once again my blog has been neglected due to the lack of free time on my hands, I even passed up on the Mos Def show here last night because I was so knackered from the week.  Thankfully there is no shortage of good music. I doubt I will catch up on whats been hot the last weeks so I will just recommend you grab the  Madlib Beat Konducta  Africa 3xLP & his  Space Jazz 2xLP (Madlib has already released about 6 albums so far this year), the Drum Brothers/Soul Square 12 on Kif, Ed Smith’s jazzy booty of the Message or Calibre’s latest thing his Signature inprint.

This week I picked up the latest mix CD from DJ Mitsu the Beats called Bossa-nova em uso diario. He has gone all out with a eclectic selection of chilled latin tunes both new and old. As always, it flows the whole way through, is mixed tightly (naturally beat matching live drums isn’t always possible) and well worth every yen. I was also lucky enough to buy from discogs.com the missing mix in my Roses collection. He put out 3 of these library/jazz fusion/rhodes heavy Roses mixes a couple of years back and being Japanese only releases they have been quite difficult to track down. Get ’em if you see ’em.


Beatmakingsingingdj Ahu did this mix in 2007 of all Paul White material, yessir it contains loads of his earlier works. Keep your eyes out for Paul’s LP due on Now Again and for more Ahu adventures.


This morning I was doing some catching up on a few Worldwide shows that I have missed the last weeks. One worthy of your time is the Erykah Badu b2b session with GP. Expect to hear a few cuts from her sensational new album – New Amerykah Part 2, other good music she selected, plus plenty of chatter from one of the most unique female singers of our time. That Edith Funker project she is involed in sounds dope…..
