Musically, this has definitely been the best week this year for me so far. Get ready for
this week’s In
Rotation: 06/10/05. In my opinion, this is the best radio blog I’ve
done in a while, because the music these days has really been on-point. This is tight, people.
It also helped that Todd Kelley’s
birthday was two days ago, so we had to poke him a little.
00 – The KB Drop..
01 – Intro – TK’s-Birthday.
02 – Jamiroquai – Time Won’t Wait. The album itself,
in my opinion, is the best one he’s delivered in 10 years. A strong track with
a great vocal arrangement.
03 – D Nell – 20/20 (Main Mix). "This Thing" was one of my
favorite tracks from last year. Producer
Dan Jones and Vocalist Ellie Hajee have delivered one of my favorite tracks
so far this year, which is making me wonder when, if at all, their album will
04 – D’Influence ft Posnudos – Shake It. [Explicit] The track from the CD without
Posnudos was great…this has an awesome spin on it.
05 – The Foreign Exchange – Nic’s Groove (Electric Bounce Rock Skate Mix). [Explicit] When
I first listened to this mix, I thought, ‘why touch perfection?’ but in
my opinion, they did a great job.
06 – Jon B – I’m Right Here. From Stronger Everyday, a chillout cut which
is a perfect segue to:
07 – Yamama’Nym – Groove. I learned about them
08 – Honey’s Interlude.
09 – Jamiroquai – Starchild. I’m a sucker for great arrangements of strings,
vocals, and guitars.
10 – Esthero ft Andre 3000 – Junglebook. Track from Wikked
11 – Rahsaan Patterson – Yeah Yeah Yeah.
12 – TK Gettin’ Off (EJ).
13 – Repercussions – Turn Your Card. Still vibin’ off them. Reminded
14 – The Brand New Heavies – Spend Some Time. You remember this
15 – Nikka Costa – Around The World. From her new album, can’tneverdidnothin’.
16 – Kelis – So Be It. Not sure why I picked this
album out and played it this week, but I was really feeling this track.
17 – Raul Midon – State Of Mind. Nikki was feeling this artist, so as
soon as the album was released, I picked it up. The entire CD is wonderful.
18 – Roy Ayers – I Am Your Mind (Part 2). Also from Galactic Soul.
The explicit cuts are ones which ones are a little raw with their dialogue, so if you’re blasting this at work, make sure your CEO isn’t around (unless he curses too). Groove it forward.
