I normally drop a mixx for the New Year and this year is no exception. It’s full of soul tracks and I call it the ‘Soul&Beyond’ Mixx. Put ears on it when you get a chance. It is full of soulful goodness.
Peep the video for some live entertainment:
Dresden Symphony ft. Tweet and Joy - It's A Man's World
At first glance you just might think that's MC Serch from the rap group 3rd Bass in that photo above, but you'd be wrong. This guy goes by the name DJ Greenpeace and plus his "fourhead" is slightly bigger than Serch's, but not by much! Anyway, he's reppin' London and is very recognized and respected for his deejaying skills. Some say that you haven't seen great turntablizm until you've seen this kat live on the wheels of steel. Since, I've never seen him in person, I can't verify that last statement. However, I have heard a couple of his recorded mixes and they are pretty solid. I can care less about how well a DJ blends and/or scratches records. What impresses me is the ability pick quality records, which Greenpeace does well.
Put ears on his Chill Stereo Mix and let me know what you think. It's filled with hot hip-hop joints from the past that should definitely bring a tear to your left eye.

The new album drops on December 16, 2008. Support quality soul music!
It's Thanksgiving today, so I thought I'd give a little something that you just might enjoy. It's called music! The gift that keeps on giving. I have provided a mixx showcasing my main man Dante (Mos Def) doing his thing in all aspects of his diverse musical career. These are some of my favorite tracks from his collection. There are some rare and hard to find joints on here, so put ears on it after you eat a plate of that good Turkey Day food.
I will mos definitely be getting my eat on to the 3rd power this afternoon and I'll also be making a couple of to-go plates as well. There is truly something special eating cold turkey and dressing the morning after that makes the holiday complete.
So, remember to do something nice for somebody today, and be safe out there.
If you haven't heard this joint by now over a decade later, here's your last chance! I came across this in my travels, so I'm in share mode. This joint STILL bumps too (my head is bobbin' while I type this)!
Thank me later...
That is all...
The album "808s & Heartbreaks" drops on November 24, 2008, but until then...
Skip buying a rap album this month and pick up some jazz instead. Trust me, in a couple of years (or months in some cases) the majority of the rap you buy today will be worthless, but jazz is forever!
