In Rotation: 07/16/05 – The Anniversary of EJ





EJ for Dollars

Originally uploaded by ej flavors.

You should be celebrating this entire this weekend. On Saturday, July 16th, at
7:20PM, I turn 19.

Err, um, times two.

There will be a lot of introspection goin’ on this whole weekend. I really thought
about trying to concentrate on the flow as much as I could, but just like I’m
all over the map, so is the playlist.

This week’s In
Rotation: 07/16/05: EJ’s 38th
.

00 – EJ Rotation Intro. Done by Todd
Kelley
. He’s a bad man, people. He’s got skillz.
01 – Jamiroquai – (Don’t) Give Hate A Chance.
If you’re a Jamiroquai
fan, you should pick this up. This is a feel good, wake up song.
02 – Groove Collective – Up All Night.
I have to thank Trader
Mike
for this one. Made me realize what I was missing on the Acid Jazz front.

03 – Fat Joe – I Can Do U.
A really good mackdaddy cut from Fat Joe.
Special shoutout to Nastybastard.

04 – Little Brother – Love Joint.
Alright, I should be warning you that
this is not a PG track. I can’t help it. I still vibe to it. A head nodder, for
sure.
05 – Vanessa Marquez – In The Midnight Hour (2nd Version).
Nikki,
I owe you one. I still can’t stop playing this track (Rocka, take note). Nikki,
just for this, I’m gonna get you a Being Bobby Brown DVD for your birthday! *ducks*
06 – Nate James – Set The Tone.
Another track from Britain.
07 – Little Brother – The Yo-Yo (Nicolay Remix).
From The Chitlin
Circuit
CD.
08 – The Foreign Exchange – Foreign Exchange End Theme.
With Yazahrah
on vocals, I love this short track.
09 – D-Nell – That’s How I Know.
I think Honey
and Todd can agree with me
that this track is a nice one.
10 – Jaguar Wright – Ecstacy.
Thanks. Honey.
We love you down here in the dungeon!
11 – Sy Smith – Aquarius Rising.
Did I mention the dungeon? This
track (from an already great CD) is graced by Nicolay, which, right now, speaks
volumes. Nicolay and Sy Smith may go unappreciated, but not by me.
12 – Raheem DeVaughn – Where I Stand.
I’m tellin’ you, my
people, get this
CD. This CD will be in rotation for a while. I’m sure of it.
13 – Missy Elliott – Irresistible Delicious.
This track features Slick
RIck and it’s infectious. I believe Silence
Is A Rhythm Too
would agree with me. Special shoutout to Kim for the vibe.
14 – Vivian Green – All About Us.
Just like KB
said, say what you want….the album is a good one.
15 – Amerie – One Thing (Silk Remix).
Matt – thanks
for the vibe for this one. I didn’t think I would like this, and I’ve gotta admit,
this is a great remix of this song. Special shoutouts to O-Dub
too, who was feeling this track.
16 – Ladybug Mecca – Centre Of Nowhere.
Her CD Trip The Light Fantastic
is a must-have if you are, or ever have been, on a Digable Planets vibe. Forilla.
17 – Koop – Summer Sun (Markus Enochson Remix).
Keeping summer in mind,
I want to drop two remixes. The first is another remix from a very good album
from Koop. From Disco Jazz, Volume 1.
18 – Louie Vega – Sunshine (Sacred Rhythm Mix).
Ending this mix on a
house note, and who better than Louie Vega. You know how we do. From
Elements of Life – "Extensions".


Anyone wanting to give? Paypal
and Amazon
are there for you.
Good gyrations for everyone this weekend.
Also, give your good vibes to Edwidge as this is also her birthday weekend as well! Go Edwige!
