New Mix: Recent Soul (2011)

This is my first mix since parenthood threw me for a loop in 2008.
I put this mix together to share some of my favorite soulful music from the past year or two. This mix is for promotional purposes only—these artists have bills to pay—so please support them. I created an itunes playlist where you can purchase the full versions of the songs I used. Feedback is appreciated!

Barrington Levy - Here I Come - 09 - The Vibes Is Right

Usually smoove jazz sax cheeses up any song, yet this song is so STRONG.
Great end of summer vibe.

Toro Y Moi "Saturday Love"

Can't hold a candle to the original, I don't think ANYONE could.
Nonetheless it's good to hear people paying homage to a classic.

Active Child - High Priestess

Gorgeous song. His voice sounds like Emo Phillips, or maybe Antony Hegarty but its really stuck in my head.

Damon Albarn and DRC - Hallo

Apparently Damon Albarn is getting his Paul Simon on producing an album with Congolese musicians (via SPIN article.) Charity albums often don't produce the best results, but oh man, this first song is promising...

Hallo (featuring Tout Puissant Mukalo and Nelly Liyemge) by DRC Music

If You Like-a Me...

This was one of my favorite films as a kid, and its aged quite well, (or maybe I just haven't matured). Ive always thought this song was sweet, I hope I get to play it at a wedding one day...

Delayed Gratification

Before Drake's 'Fancy, there was this one, which I learned of by way of DJ Soul's 'No Idea's Original'.
This is the slowest builder ever, by the last minute its seriously good, but then the last 20 seconds - wow, who else is producing R&B on this level?

(Sadly his lyrics are not up to par, but the production, just sublime.)

Recommended Reading: Patti Smith - Just Kids

This was a great book, made me nostalgic for a NYC before my time, when a giant loft on 23 St could be had for $200, and you could run into Jimi Hendrix or Andy Warhol on the street. When being an artist in Manhattan was possible, without having a full-time job.
