I had a very, very exhausting weekend working with the Vibe Music Fest which was in town.
That’s alright though, I made it through! Stay tuned for the story. Meanwhile,
let me tell you about this mix:
I was going to try and perform a strictly England mix since I got a chance to
meet up with Loose Ends this weekend for the Vibe Music Fest, but I just went
with the flow this round. I put the headphones on and thought about the end
of spring and the beginning of summer and it came out this way…
01 – Shanice – It’s For You, with verses dropped by one of the guys from…
02 – Portrait – Commitment – one of my favorite cuts, which
reminded me of…
03 – Alexander O’Neal – What’s Missing, because I knew a lot of people have been wanting to hear a little Alex, am I right? Then, I felt like vibing
04 – Vanessa Williams – Work To Do, with rap by Dres, since
in Miami taking lots of photos, damn him! That in turn me think of….
05 – Heavy D – Somebody For Me (big props to Nastybastard).
But then, I thought about Xquizzyt1
and Honey, and decided
06 – Taja Sevelle – Popular…but then I couldn’t go without
the first cut I heard from Loose Ends this past weekend during their performance….
07 – Loose Ends – Stay a Little While, Child [Remix], which
was a perfect segue into the mellow…
08 – Zhane – Just Like That, which made me think of **RPM**,
which is why I dropped….
09 – Chuckii Booker – You Don’t Know, which was an absolutely
perfect prelude to….
10 – Cherrelle – Where Do I Run To? with vocals by Rick, Ran,
and Dan. Cherrelle singing made me pull out….
11 – Mary J. Blige – Reminisce… but then I had to go back
into the crates and pick on Yolanda
12 – Soul II Soul – Love Come Through, which reminded me of…..
13 – Club Nouveau – Situation Number 9, and then I had to tip
my hat to Gwen and drop…
14 – Aleese Simmons – I Want To Be Your Lover, and then finally
I had to give a shoutout to Hypothetically
Speaking and to Sister
Outsider and close it out with….
15 – Loose Ends – Dial 999.
I came up with this mix in about 45 minutes. Think I did alright? Groove with
