Another week is upon us and well, here’s another mix. This week’s mix brings the bachelor pad tropical Funk of Les Baxter, some reworked De La Soul from the DeLaSoviet project with another De La sampled track by Taana Gardner, El Michels Affair adding a children’s vocal Wu Tang Clan cover plus a Bomb Squad remix of the Budos Band, West Coast Soul from A Combination of Sound and the Latin infused Hip Hop music of Ozomatli, the Visioneers payin’ tribute to Isaac Hayes, Willie Bobo and the Bo Gents doing their thang, Raw Dog’s own DJ Louis Slipperz from the UK (let’s not forget the great MC Maestro), the hilltop Hustlers outta Philly 3 x Dope, Harold Mabern doing his cover of the Jackson 5, plus Reggae styles of Faithless (yes I did it), King Yellowman, The Outlaw Josey Wales, and The Upsetters.
It’s also a little tribute to to a pair of my favorite designers Charles and Ray Eames, with a a molded plastic rocker on the cover. The furniture and music have so much original stylin’ in them (let’s not forget another Herb Lubalin tribute with the reworked fonts in the name) that this is my favorite mix of the series so far. Enjoy it, and if you like it, feel free to pass it on to a friend.
