Playing tracks by
Quincy Jones ft. Akon, Lauryn Hill, Kid Koala, The Warheads, Melounge and more.
The engine for this set was a return to the scene of Lauryn Hill, whose exceptional voice on "Repercussions" still works its magic on my ears. Additionally from the good people at Giant Step, from a couple of months ago, Quincy Jones turns in "Strawberry Letter 23" (which, while sounding remarkably like a Prince song, was actually written by Shuggie Otis, and made famous by the Brothers Johnson) … earworm moments from a master music maker … And then there are two tracks chosen from the impressive output of The Warheads this year -- let me just add to the love they're getting.
OTOH, the older stuff is damn nice as well … wrapping up this set led me to what might be one of the very first tunes I ever downloaded from mp3.com, by the duo t spigot … I don't remember much about my reaction back in the day but listening to it this time around woke me up like a pinball machine lights up for a winner.
Trust me, trust your ears: Here you have smoothness itself, right thru to the end.
