In Rotation: 11/20/05





Ffena And Heston

Originally uploaded by ej flavors.

After a two-week hiatus, it’s time to get back to it. I’ve been rotating a little
bit of everything.

In
Rotation: 11/20/05

Old School Wednesdays has a habit of doing a lot of "where are
they now" research, and as such, I tracked down Jaki Graham,
who was the featured vocalist on Kiss The Sky. While her album
Don’t Keep Me Waiting is slightly different from the Kiss The
Sky CD, there are some very good tracks. Heaven and Seek
and You Will Find
is in the mix here. Along the same vein, Brigette
released a new album called Starlight Lounge (including the
single Star) which I had to pick up because I was a fan of
her CD Take Advantage Of Me, which includes the hit single
Cherish This Love.

Midnight Soul 1 was a great double CD compilation, so whenI saw Midnight
Soul 2
, I immediately pulled it. My three favorite
tracks: Losing You by Kooba, Give
Me The Sunshine
by Leo’s Sunshipp, and Dreams
by Solu Martin f/Kai Martin are from that CD. Remember Platinum
Pied Pipers
, who has a female vocalist on their CD on three tracks,
including the cut Stay With Me? Then you remember Tiombe
Lockhart
. She has a very eclectic CD out called The Tiombe
Lockhart Bootleg #1
. The tracks featured here are Drifter
(which I’m waiting for an extended version of) and G.P. I also
managed to pick up Julie and Khari‘s EP, which is where Venusian
(Aquariana Remix)
is from, and rotated Carleen Anderson‘s
Soul Providence, which is where the track All In My
Mind
is from. I’m even waiting on Slum Village‘s
next release, so I picked up their first CD, Slum Village, which is where the
track Call Me is from.

The best thing about last weekend was that I was able to make it to
a concert with Ffena, a spoken word artist, Brodie,
and Heston which was wonderful. Ffena’s Beautiful featuring
Robin S.
, and Heston’s new single Sumthin In The Water
are also included here. Definitely check these great tracks out. Also, both
Heston
and Trader Mike
mentioned their passion for Beres Hammond, who is highly regarded
as the "Marvin Gaye of reggae," which is why the great track No
Disturb Sign
is also in this mix.

Enjoy.

    I gotta get that Midnight Soul Vol. 2. I mean if its endorsed by EJ Flavors you can’t go wrong. Quick question…I want to buy Rich Medina’s “Connecting The Dots” CD but want to make sure it’ll be worth it. I’ve heard a couple of tracks…is Rich Medina legit? Let me know.
    Happy Turkey Day to all. -Peace.

    Anywhere we can hear more HESTON? He crute!

    I’m really feeling that Leo’s Sunshipp track. Nothing has to be said about SV or PPP.

    @T: MS v 2 is definitely endorsed by me, T. Rich Medina is all that. Hook up with me, and I’ll make sure you get it.
    @TLH: Crute?
    @KB: Yeah, that’s my favorite cut too. I won’t front.

    That new Slum Village is hot. They are definitely one of the most slept on groups in hip-hop.

    I totally love Brigette McWilliams’ Starlight Lounge album. I heard a track from in Japan and I could not wait until it came out in the states.
