Futurized Funk – A tribute mix to Easy Mo Bee

 

Here is a mix that I made to pay homage to one of my favorite producers., Easy Mo Bee.  I didn’t want to consider this a “best of” but felt that it was a strong representation of his work.  This mix is also dedicated to a good friend of mine, Matthew Africa, who passed last month.  He encouraged me to make this mix and provided some great ideas. As usual, this a one take mix. It was cool to see Easy Mo Bee give me props on his twitter.  Tracklisting after the jump:

The Sixth Sense #iseedubpeople is the sixth anniversary FREE compilation from the homie Khal who runs rockthedub.com. Happy 6th birthday! I am proud of Khal, a fellow internet dad, who has been championing the dubstep sound way before “bros” have been liking in Vegas and bottle-service clubs.

 

It’s split in two pieces – the main comp and an 11-track extended bonus .zip. Tracks from the likes of MarQ Spekt, Ethel Cee, Danny!, BURNTmd, Tone Liv, Zilla Rocca, the Elite Assembly, Scatta R.Pee, My Man Shafe, Ray Dawn, AWKWORD, Rhymageddon and plenty more.

Tracklisting after the jump.

Karen O – Stop the Virgens

Although KTL is primarily a hip-hop lifestyle blog, any one who’s been to the site knows that I am giant Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Karen O fan. This is her new “musical” (?) based off a secret solo album she did in 2005. Read up on it here.

1-O.A.K. – Special Request

1-O.A.K. - Special Request Album

 

1-O.A.K. is one of my fav singers of current soul singers.  His voice has a smoothness and is so visceral, you rarely hear this type of talent… ever. Since moving to the Bay, I’ve been following 1-O.A.K.’s songs and career.  Check my mixes and you can find a cameo or song of his on a few of them.  Other than Jay-Z and Keys N Krates, I think he’s on my mixes the most.  His debut album is out and I hope you take a moment to recognize his greatness. All songs were composed, written, arranged, produced, and sang by 1-O.A.K. Props to the Honor Roll Crew!

BJ The Chicago Kid – #Imjustsayin

BJ has been making some rumblings over the last two years but I feel 2012 could be his. This guy is rapidly becoming one of my fav soul singers, up there with Honor Roll’s 1-O.A.K. If you haven’t already listened to “His Pain” w/ Kendrick Lamar, hit me up. Its repeat-worthy. Take a listen to this…
