It’s been a while, but there is still good music out there that needs to be represented. I presented the first tack, The Beauty Of Life, because it is one that has stayed in rotation and is a great track from Hide & Seek, a compilation by Foreign Exchange. The UK group Yakul is represented here, as is IS’s Zilo, from the album Gorgeous. Master Soul Boy’s track Inside, was put in my ears by Todd Big La Kelley, the Liana track was placed in my ear by Jeff, and the Tasha track was sent to me by J Brotherlove. Benny Sings and Jonti accompanied with Steve Lacy is followed up by the UK rapper Ty with Speech from the group Arrested Development. Ty passed on 7 May 2020, the same day as Andre Harrell. THat was a tragic day in soul and hip hop music, and he will be missed.
I had to follow up Ty wit a track from Kindness featuring Bahamadia, who I can never get enough of. This is followed up by the thoughtful track from Terrace and the crew, and great track from the Free Nationals with a little help from Benny Sings. I finish it off with BOSCO (very underrated), and Alex Isley. Thank you fo allowing me to wet my feet. Special, special, special thanks to J Brotherlove, Jeff, KB, and Todd Big La Kelley, ,Big ups to Grant Love, Chris Christopher, Nikki, Macedonia, and Arnold. Your feedback is always encouraged. Take it light.
