Creating these podcasts starts out with a bit of angst as I try to find cuts that I like from multiple vibes, and I usually try to start off with the house vibe (this is a long story that I will share later – I promise.)  Lowtempo house tracks from Hardsound and Kloud 9 kick this set off quite nicely.  The Escovedos, now known as The E Family continue with this wonderful track that is reminiscent of Earth Wind and Fire, aptly named Peace And Joy.   Natalie Williams continues with her jam A Lil Wiser.  Mark DeClive Lowe, calling in the vocal assistance of Bembe Segue and Nia Andrews  turn the flow to the left with a soulful, synth track that instantly has become my favorite MCDL track to date, Push.

Old school heads will appreciate the next two tracks, one from the old school divas Shirley Jones and Jean Carne with Whatever It Takes and Silly, a former group from Japan which managed to surprise me with a nice tribute to DeBarge with their rendition of I Like It.  45 aka Swing-O released an album a couple of weeks ago so, of course, I was on it immediately, and selected Lucky Day from the  album Stop! Look!Listen, another great album.
Goapele follows the mellow vibe with Break Of Dawn.   Mind Combined from Korea  follows Goapele with the mellow, smooth track,  Something’s Special.  

Strange Fruit Project never ceases to amaze me with their flow. as is evident from the CD A Dreamer’s Journey with Gotta Move.  Colonel Red from the UK, known for his soul singing, also adds a little hop-hop flair with his cut, Pressure. Rina drops a head-nodder from the album Our Kingdom

You gotta love Krystal Hardwick’s vibe when you hear No Other Way.  The album A Tale of Two Fish is along the same vibe, so pick up, you won’t be dissapointed.  The same can also be said of Compton’s Record By Record, from the album Compton’s Soul, another sublime CD.  I then end on the mellow tip as always, with two of my all-time female singers, Lalah Hathaway with the title track of her CD, That’s Where It All Begins, and Maysa Leak with her title track from her CD as well, Motions Of Love.
I will be putting additional information into the tracks above, so check for more updates.  Got requests? Send an email to ejflavors at gmail dot com.
