That Old Record ft. Heeni – Dj Ismail

Good morning fellow melomaniacs! Are you ready to get sucked in by the dreamy, delicious voice of Heeni, and taken to the land of beautiful brass and sexy sax?

I’m assuming you all said yes, so welcome to the track, That Old Record.  The song was originally an instrumental piece done by DJ Ismail, but when Heeni heard it she decided to add some lyrics and the perfect match was made!

Heeni aka Flip Giles has been singing since she was a child, growing up in London and following her dreams of being an opera singer, she was accepted to the Royal Academy of Music London when she was 19. She was then placed on the reserve list at Guildhall School of Music. Later Heeni moved to Bristol and started writing her own songs, collecting inspiration from her surroundings, past adventures, romances, family tragedy, and imagination. Since then she has played with a few bands ranging in genres from Ska, Reggae, Funk, Alternative, Indie and Jazz, singing and writing for each one of them. Most recently Heeni has decided to move back to London and has focused all her energy into new electronic collaborative Jazz Hip Hop and D&B projects.

This track gives that old school, sexy vibe that makes your body sway, fingers snap and sassy attitude come alive. It’s a song that can be played on repeat a couple of times and no one complains. So what are you waiting for… Hit play!!!

Mini Mix- Jenny Louca

Jenny Louca…Who are you? Where are you from? Why have I never heard your music before? And how do you only have 20 followers!?

Within the first few seconds of listening to this mix I was hooked. That electronic bluesy harmonica sound is just so sexy and infectious it had me feeling tingly and wanting more. From the classic tracks by Stevie Wonder and Red Hot Chilli Peppers to beats you may not have heard before, these tunes will keep you on your toes, whether your listening for whats next or on the floor dancing. The combination of funk and swing in my ears is like eating my favourite home cooked meal made by my mom. after travelling for months and that is the perfect description for this 14 minutes and 12 seconds you are about to listen to. Get your speakers turned up loud, booty ready to shake and have a time!

Much Love!

Shadowbox Tour 2017- Beats Antique

Ladies and gentleman I have for you a unique, groovy, soulful pre made playlist for your listening pleasures. Beats Antique have created this collection of tracks they have collaborated with others on and music they have enjoyed over this past 2017 year. It is like no other playlist I have listened to. Zoe Jakes, David Satori, and Sidecar Tommy, this Oakland based group have made a genre of their own, forging a curious alliance between middle eastern traditions and potent west coast circus, underground hip hop, breakfast brass band, down tempo, glitch and dubstep.

If you are lucky enough to live in a city that this tour is coming to, first of all get your tickets, and second listen to this playlist as many times as you please to get amped up for the wicked soul filling experience you are about to be a part of. The first time I had the pleasure of being a part of a Beats Antique show I walked away feeling re charged and warm inside, exploding with all good vibes and so much love.

My favourite track off this playlist is Beats Antique- Let It All Go (feat. Preservation Hall Jazz Band). It’s crunchy, classy, and catchy with that swingy jazz vibe that is right up my alley.  Take a listen to this 31 tremendous track selection and choose your favourite!

Much Love

Home Is Where The Heart Beats- Vibe Street

O hey there Friday, I have been impatiently awaiting your arrival and those Friday feel good vibes you always seem to bring me. As I took a stroll on Soundcloud to find the perfect match to my mood I happened to turn onto Vibe Street and find just that. Sexy, spicy, sultry and the most smooth sound filled my ears and I couldn’t help but fall in love. The fusion of Electro-Glitchy-Hip Hop and Bluesy-Folk put the biggest smile on my face and I couldn’t help but get up and rock out.

Ben “Smiles” Davis is the  genius behind the fresh new flavour he has coined as “Grass-Hop/ Future- Folk”. Whether it’s an intimate show or a late night dance tent, Vibe Street is known to get the crowd feeling just right. Denver, CO is where he calls home, but with a sound so diverse he is gaining fans from across the world and from all different spectrums. Give him a follow and fill your soul with a refreshing dose of originality that you so desperately crave.

P.S. I couldn’t choose just one track, EP or Album so here is one of each!

Late Night People – GoldFish

New music out from the South African duo GoldFish. Back in September one of my co-authors Whit did a fantastic write up of the single from this album – If I Could Find. The album follows suit with more funky, blues, instrumental, bassy goodness. There are even a few tropical house type vibes in here. Great vocals throughout and every track flows nicely into the next. This is a perfect feel good album to transition us back to the real world after a long weekend.

Maybe Whit will be a little choked I snagged this one, maybe she won’t. If she is, then maybe she’ll think twice about posting any new music from my future wife – REZZ. Muahaha.

Happy Thanksgiving!
