Let’s Get Together Vol. 1

Hello Friends!  Here’s the first of many eclectic mixes to come from Kevin.  Highlights include New York disco classics, Polish rock, Detroit nu jazz/broken beat, and even some ragga jungle-style D&B out of Detroit.  Plus, a Radio Shack answering machine rap message from an old cassette.  Tracklist and more after the jump!

Here’s the trailer to The Education Of Sonny Carson.  A must-see movie:

I have nothing against white soul when it is done good.  Case in point: Jamie Lidell, Ben Westbeech, Tuomo, Tortured Soul, etc.  Here’s the video for Benny Sings’ Champagne People.  He’s not what I expected him to look like when I first heard his music, nor did I expect him to be from the Netherlands…

Speaking of white soul… not only is Detroit’s Jeremy Ellis a talented singer and musician, but he is also a master of the Akai MPC sampler.  Here he is in Switzerland in May 2008.  (p.s.  This 100 times more difficult than it looks):

I’m a child of the ’80s, so naturally, ’80s stuff is going to be a guilty pleasure of mine.  I found out about Visage only 10 years ago when I was on the hunt for an old school electro classic…  The Dance Mix version of their song Pleasure Boys has a break on it that I heard numerous times as a kid growing up, listening to the Saturday Night Fresh mix show on 107.1 FM in Saginaw.  When I finally found out what the song was and who made it, I started to check for more of their stuff.  While none of their other songs were as good as Pleasure Boys, a few did catch my attention, and Damned Don’t Cry was one them.  Yes, the video is horrible and very ’80s, but I love the song:

And speaking of the ’80s…

  1. I really liked this mix Kevin. Miss Broadway and Is It All Over My Face are two favorites for sure. The track I am most impressed with though is Damned Don’t Cry, I love that song and a lot of other stuff from Visage. I don’t know anyone else who is down with that track. Kudos!
