I’m in the middle of another assignment/teaching storm but two things:
1) If you’re not listening to Matthew Africa’s Best of Luv N’ Haight podcast, you wack. This is basically what I was geeking out over ten years ago and most of this STILL sounds fresh as hell. Courtial! Darondo! Leno Spencer! Sugar Pie! So so awesome.
2) Likewise, Thes One and DJ Day join forces, Palm Springs style. Cooler than a dip in the Ace pool.
3) And if that’s not enough, I put together an hour long gospel soul mix for Aquarium Drunkard that airs this Friday on their Sirius/XM show.
(Also: I’m working on one of these right now but you’ll have to wait to find out for who).
Love the 50 Greatest Voices project by The NPR. They already done Donny Hathaway, so my second guess is Chuck D.
