I’ve pimped Amerigo Gazaway’s mash-up work for a few years. He has this unique ability to combine classic soul/jazz/RnB with old school hip-hop to make seamless works. Some of my past favorites are the Cool-Out Corner mix, Fela Soul the De La Soul & Fela Kuti collab and Mos Def & Marvin Gaye double albums. […]
Chimpo is an absolute musical genius. Three jungle “relicks”, from Ella Mai, Rygin King, and Amira respectively, that are so fresh you’d think they were dropped in 1994. To be able to take three very disparate original tracks and craft resonating, classic jungle out of them is just such an impressive skill. It is a […]
The new Akuratyde is here! The new Akuratyde is here! The new Akuratyde is here!

Rest easy, Aretha. You will be missed.
I’m a big Kyrist fan and this mix is a banger. Whatever tune that comes in at 13 minutes is a fucking killer…I *need* it!
This visually hypnotic video for the new Rum Baba EP on 31 Records is hype. This whole EP, entitled Hollywood, is killing it right now and I am excited to get my copy. You can pre-order it here. Stop Talking VIP is my Tune of the Day.
It’s a year old mix, but I don’t care. It’s choice.
