“New album from Jungle Fire out today. Nonstop Dance Party!”
Have you ever had a group of people over and you wanted to play a different type of dance music, other than the predictable “top-20″ hits? Give Afro-beat a try. They say that humans originated in Africa…maybe that’s why there’s something in Afro-beat that resonates in every person and it’s so damn infectious.
Jungle Fire’s newest album “Tropicoso” is a great place to start exploring and start dancing.
“Turkuaz has completely dominated my itunes this week. heavy funk and that bass line doe…FLASHLIGHT”
“I’m gettin’ tired of your shit
You don’t never buy me nothin'”
This moment pretty much speaks for itself. Everything Eryka touches turns to gold, and My Morning Jacket totally takes it to the next level. Jim James delivers a gut punching guitar solo that is constructed out of pure, raw energy.
“A recent Spotify discovery for me, really digging both albums from the City Champs.”
These guys are a great hidden gem. Super underrated jazz-funk trio. Just some good ol’ get-down-and-boogie organ-funk.
“A few guys who’ve worked with snarky puppy are in this. There’s also a crazy solo in this, fittingly.”
For those of you who like Snarky Puppy and what they’re all about, and you don’t have your Cory Henry up….get your Cory Henry up. Dood is a beast. He’s the piano player for SP. When I saw them live in Toronto, he closed out their set with a jaw-dropping solo, and it was clear he was on the level of musical genius that the greats are. Just check out his solo stuff.
Here’s a taste of one of my favorites off his new album. The whole thing is gold and definitely worth the purchase.
Loving this song. Married couple. Husband plays piano and raps, Wife sings. This track has it all: jazz, hip/hop, and nice vocals. It has that Glasper black radio feel, and it’s good to know that some other artists are combining modern jazz with hip-hop. The whole album is pretty out there, some good spoken word and experimental parts.
If you’re stressed and beat after a long day, just take a breather with this clam. It’ll lift you right out of the neo-soulersystem. Moonchild is The Truth.
Here’s my favorite tune off this album.
Amber Navran – vocals
Andris Mattson and Max Bryk – Production and horns.
