Digital Moods: Fall Edition v.1 (Podcast)

Recently, I did this mix to kick off my new series of mixes for the four seasons that will feature indie electronica producers and artists. I plan to do about 2 mixes per season. Since fall is presently here, I crafted this one to have the sounds reflective of the way I think autumn would sound like, as do some of the artists who do tracks with the same thought. This one, like the others will have a full tracklisting and links to the artist's pages or websites. I would hope that everyone who listens will be supportive of these artists and buy their material. Music is valuable!

Friday Flashback: Roxanne Shante'

A few people are surprised when I say that Roxanne Shante' is my favorite lady emcee, as well as in my top 5 of emcees of all time. I mean, why not give her the proper respect she deserves? To have the uncanny ability to freestyle a whole song at the tender age of 14, and that song to sell over 250,000 copies within her own home town alone. That song is "Roxanne's Revenge", a tune that helped spark the "Roxanne Wars". Although we are long past that era in Hip-Hop history, i'm here to mention my favorite joint by this Queensbridge native, titled "Go On Girl". Featured on the Colors (OST), this song also filled many dancefloors, and is also a perfect tune to blend with "It Takes Two" by Rob Base & DJ EZ-Rock. Both using the same sample, taken from Lynn Collins' "Think (About It)". This tune is still in my heavy rotation today. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do and Have A Nice Day!
