Playing tracks by
Urban Species, Brooklyn Funk Essentials, US3, Digable Planets, Erykah Badu and more.
So I just realised I put this mix on my blog but not on here. I listened to it this morning and thought it was pretty good actually! It starts with a bit of a 90s vibe including, that Digable Planet classic and the first of a spoken word centred track. After that, Erykah, Kelis, Gang Starr, Nas, Common and a bit of Marvin Gaye which is never not needed. Some beautiful poetry from Saul Williams and Blackalicious and the fantastic Robert Glasper. But the pinnacle, I think, is the two Mos Def tracks, off one of most underrated albums of recent times, The New Danger; the sweet flow of Sunshine and the epic Modern Marvel. It samples Marvin and it is totally worthy. It ends with some future soul out of London.
