Dr. J Presents: On The Beaten Track (Volume 18, Part 1)
A mix that I've been waiting to put together for a little while! A bit of a celebration of the beat in a variety of shapes and sizes, all with soul, one way or another. The whole thing turned out to be a bit more unwieldy than I'd initially planned (it stands at 3 3/4 hours in total, but I'm not complaining!
Part 1 kicks off with a tune which influenced my view of the potential of urban music heavily at the time and encouraged me that soul was (and still is) very much alive and continues with a collection of tunes I've come across over the years that remind me of how good hip-hop can be. Plenty here to nod your head to, perhaps have a little wiggle, or just chill with. Later on in the mix we start to raise the pace with some slightly more contemporary beats, older classics, newer gems - http://www.mixcloud.com/drjpresents/dr-j-presents-on-the-beaten-track-part-2/
The soul rolls on...
