KINDRED: THE NEW ALBUM The soul duo Kindred The Family Soul is finally releasing their new album Love Has No Recession on June 28th. I like both of the new singles "You Got Love" and "Magic Happens" from the new joint. Mark your calendars people. Kindred always delivers that soulful goodness.

Before exiting, put eyes on this artistic video from Timothy Bloom just in case you missed it:

This is a REAL Detroit emcee! His name is Elzhi. You should know this kid. He used to be a member of the group Slum Village. He was basically kicked out of the group. That was a huge mistake in my personal opinion. It is 2011. Elzhi is back at with his latest mixtape release entitled "Elmatic" which is paying homage to Nas' classic "Illmatic" album from the early 90s. I have heard several Illmatic tribute mixtapes throughout the years from other rappers, but I must say that I feel this Elzhi joint is the best. You may think I am being biased because I rep Detroit, but I'm actually not (this time). El's tribute bests the others because he actual captures the flow and delivery of Nas during that time. He's not just spit verses over the best, but he embodies the essence of Nas and the Golden Era of Hip-Hop! Take a listen for yourselves...

Make sure you put ears on the hidden track where he discusses in detail the situation with his SV departure.

When most music fans think of vanilla soul artists, the first names that come to mind are the usual suspects like Jon B, Teena Marie, Robin Thicke, Mayer Hawthorne, Remy Shand, etc. Well, if you haven't already, add Mr. Miles Bonny to that elite list as well. He's a really dope singer, producer, DJ and trumpeter from Kansas City, if you didn't know! I have been following this gentleman's career for several years now, and he never fails to impress me with his diversity as an artist. Miles performs classics from the past, soul ballads, hip-hop and remixes. He's gifted enough to flow over the most complicated production, but never fails to keep it soulful. His new album "Lumberjack Soul" drops on June 24th, so mark your calendars. Miles Bonny is defnitely one of my favorite Indie artists doing it right now, and if you close your eyes you'd swear he was a brother from another!

I decided to finally make a mixx showcasing some of my favorite Miles tracks from the past and present. As a fan, I want to give this artist some well deserved exposure, so put ears on this joint expeditiously. It's long overdue, so I hope you enjoy!
