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!!
