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!

Yasmin & Jamie XX – Touch Me (Cover)

This has been my joint recently. I know its not Hip-Hop but, damn, it jams. Definitely going to be played tomorrow night at Nappy Bees. Its a euro house cover that Jamie XX killed with the simple beat and sample. Another joint that’s in constant rotation in the last few weeks is LCD’s “Someone Great”. Please allow me to have a late pass on it. I was first turned on to it by Local 1200 homie, Willie Maze about 4 weeks ago. I was hooked. Then after a conversation with Honor Roll’s Trackademics, I was excited to hear him and 1-OAK are covering it for an upcoming project. Speaking of 1-OAK, that dude is has one of the most refreshing and versatile voices I have heard in a awhile. Look out for him. Props to AMART for the LCD soundsystem schooling. If you want to know where I am at this weekend and the upcoming weekends, please check here.
