Period & DJ Scratch flippin’ James Brown on The Big Payback Mix and Amerigo Gazaway with Yasiin Gaye: The Return: Side Two, which pair Marvin Gaye’s production with some pka Mos Def from the late 90’s.  Enjoy the listen, have a great weekend!

New… and FREE!

The Blob is a 32-minute, continuous mix of beats & sounds that have otherwise been orphaned by their hell-bound father. It is largely unmixed and occasionally offensive,” offered Aesop Rock. “James Lynch played bass on the one that sounds like an elf orgy. Allyson Baker played guitar on the last one. Mastered by Joey Raia.”

Aesop continued on to say, “You can play it with your friends, you can rap to it, you can dance to it, you can play it at a party, you could build a house to it, you can play it in the bedroom, you can play it in front of your parents. The best part about it? This is 100% free, and downloadable, on the computer-net.”

True Clerks V4 — DJ Icewater X Jen B by True Clothing on Mixcloud

New mix from TRUE done by DJ Icewater with selections from Jen B.  She says, “I wanted to create a mix that was dominated by female artists. These songs have painted a backdrop for many significant moments in my life, not to mention they’re just damn good songs. Much love to DJ Icewater for bringing together track listings of so many different genres of music and making them flow…LIKE WATER FOR TRUE.” —

Tender Knock is a term we coined to describe a particular type of sound that was spreading within R&B music in the late 80’s and early 90’s. A lot of our generation loved that sound, and at that time R&B began to be innovated using the drum machines that were typically used in Rap music. The “Tick & BOOM” of Rap was now being heard under sweet love songs of singers like Keith Sweat, Bobby Brown, Troop and lesser known artists like Anquette and Whistle. The sound is all about jeep beat style drums, tender melodies and heartfelt lyrics. The type of music teenagers would call up their local, late night Slow Jams show to dedicate to a special someone. – Whiz Ward
