How cool is this..

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

Tape recording uploaded to YouTube from Manchester Pirate Radio from 1994! Nothing like recording to tape then rewinding it so many times it get chewed up in the tape player! This is parts 1 &2 of 6 purely because it was the first I came across. You can find the rest under the related videos…it’s too sick such a flashback!

The Weeknd

Monday, March 21st, 2011

I know very little about what/who The Weeknd are/is? All I know is they have dropped one of the best mixtapes of the year. I believe “They” are a Canadian RnB group/artist who have been all over the blog world today, after dropping the mixtape over the weekend.

Their sound is a little experimental, their isn’t very much structure to what they do in that a song doesn’t follow the natural verse, chorus, verse, chorus structure….It’s very So Far Gone/Drake sounding. Canada does seem to be producing some really good RnB talent!!

Below is a track from the mixtaped titled “House of Ballons”…. You can get the whole mixtape here…Enjoy!

Some RnB Albums you need in your life…

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

How this guy slipped under my radar I am not 100% sure…His name is Anthony David. His music reminds me of Eric Roberson/Dwele but on a more chilled out vibe. Copped both of his album last night (The Red Clay Chronicles and As Above So Below both avaliable on Itunes) and I am really impressed. Perfect laid back music to work to…sounds even better now the sun is making regular apperences! Thanks to Coxhead for the heads up on this!

Anthony David “4Evermore” feat. Algebra & Phonte Official Video from As Above So Below, seriously good RnB!

Also need to mention Marsha Ambrosius’s album “Late Nights and Early Mornings“. Her first solo release after the split of Floetry, this album also fits the “nice RnB” tag definatly worth an hour of your time!

Lazy Music Fans

Jazmine SullivanAbout a year ago I had a rant about RnB being washed it’s that time again. What brought this post on is that I am currently four tracks into Jazmine Sullivan’s album “Love Me Back” and I’m getting frustrated because I know in the U.K this album will not see hardly any major success because we are currently a wash with euro dance RnB.

Now I can understand that it’s currently popular and sells but why can’t some quality RnB get the air time it deserves? If you listen to the mainstream radio stations, I’m now including 1xtra in this – they seem to following the trend of everyone else and slowly dropping RnB for what is popular and putting everything in the RnB basket.
