Inside Vibe 17/07/12

Playing tracks by

Gregory Porter, K'Bonus Dance Baby, Tall Black Guy, Minoru Muraok, Jungle By Night and more.

Finally back on air. Apologies for the radio silence, have just returned from a trip over in Jamaica and New York and to be honest still going through some of the tunes I picked up on my journey.

With the announce of the long anticipated Gregory Porter Australian Tour i decided to kick off the show with a remix of the Nina Simone classic, Feelin' Good, done by Honey Dijon that Gregory covered on his debut album.

Then I was inspired by something a friend of mine out of Brooklyn said to me while he was around. Hip Hop is dead in the States except for a few minor left field labels like Stones Throw and Mello Music. While I have to say I agree in some sense of his statement, particularly after seeing the state of the live scene in New York the other week; there is not a label in the world that can touch Mello Music. So I have done a big shout out here to my very favourite hip hop label still strong and still producing the gold!!

Nice finish on the Latin tip!

The Oddisee tracks are also very soulful, along with that Sean Born track, which kind of makes me believe decent hip hop is still alive in some quarters...

a very diverse vibe Blair that seemed to take me from deep jazz space travel, to Morocco via Spain, then into a French movie soundtrack! I especially dig the K'Bonus Dance Baby, Tall Black Guy and Thom Janusz tracks. The Shoalin tracks also are cool.
