The BeatConscious Ides of March set starts off with a raw essential good god almighty opener from the 2010 return of Gil Scott-Heron, the man who, according to his wiki page, virtually created hip-hop. So, OK, we're riding with the devil and Gil Scott-Heron, and I couldn't tell you which one is scarier … but it always comes back to the blues, doesn't it? This opener is about as dark as it gets … back to the blues where the blues is black and blue. And so the mood of this set takes shape with a few more dark tunes from Smith & Mighty, Alexkid, DJ Brace and a moodily beautiful song from the new Sade album before starting to pick up some highlights in the form of tracks from Jazzanova, Ursula 1000, Terranova, Laura Izibor, Adani & Wolf and The Dining Rooms, Ancient Astronauts; Massive Attack also represents with a 2010 release featuring Horace Andy, and there is new music from KUSH as well.
