Bobby Bland – Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City (scratchandsniff re-rub) by scratchandsniff

That songs truer then ever, the old authorities are (finally) failing and they are clinging on to something thats practically never been existent, they just succeeded by making people believe in it, and now that the illusions are becoming more and more visible to everyone, and less and less people still believe in that order of things, or even in their propsed new order, there is less and less love in the hearts of the many man-built Babylons. Everythings constantly changing, that has always been a good thing, and thats why we have to help ourselves and nobody else. Not wait for a sign from above or sit and hope for anyone else to do it. When you lose fear, you will see that a single light can can dissolve all illusion. Be mindful and have understanding for yourself and each other. The worlds changing and people will always be people, not the many illusions that let us fear others. See what is, and dont be mislead by your preconceived notions. Thats your ‘crazy’ talking, and thats why “Everything is see, everything is me!”Create a good inside and the external will follow. Enjoy this song.

Higher & Higher – Jackie Wilson (YUM YUM edit)

Your Love keeps lifting me higher & higher. Summers back, and while being in the mood for some sunny music i came across this Jackie Wilson classic, so i did this little re-edit this morning. will surely play it out the next time i hit the tables, but this weekend we all djs here at chromemusic have off, so have fun with this track and its summery, positive vibes, especially if your gf is called mary jane. Too bad stuff like this is not being played on the radio anymore these days. …hmm, not really, who cares about radio anyway? And thats exactly the reason why

Otis Redding – Try a little Tenderness (the original to Jigga & Kanyes Otis single)

While everyone is still knocking Jay-z & Kanye for how bad their, this weeks released, album “The Throne” is for a list of various reasons – here is one that Chuck D brought fwd – i still cant get over how awesome their sample for their lead single “Otis” is. Not a song to dance to, even though people go mental when you play it, doesnt look anything like dancing though, i think its brave enough and in the vein of the old fashioned hip hop to use a sample as soulful as this for a heavily promoted hiphop track, thats meant to go chartland and – no i dont care what they are saying and how much they are bragging about stuff. i stopped paying attention to hip hop vocals a long time ago. I picked better Mantras for me, no but THE SAMPLE is AWESOME. uhmm… i mean this SONG is AWESOME!
