Since 2010, YUM YUM makes the beautiful people of Krefeld go bananas once a month and with the start of 2014, YUM YUM will move to a new location to make the fun even bigger, the dances nicer & introduce some future specials.
To make a statement to the unique sound of YUM YUM, Krefeld resident Chris Burton put together this sweet mix, consisting of classic YUM YUM versions only. Play this one out to your friends and make sure to join the Re-Opening Party in Krefeld on 25th january, if you happen to be around. The YUM YUM Krefeld Crew & their guest DJ Kamikaze from Berlin are looking forward to celebrate a night full of quality YUM YUM Tunes, good vibes & friendly atmosphere.
Unser Yum Yum Berlin Mann Schowi, nicht wenigen bekannt als Massive Töne Rapper und Produzent, hat vor 13 Jahren auch Deutschlands größtes eintägiges HipHopFestival, die MTV HipHopOpen mitgegründet und passend zur 10ten Ausgabe eine Allstar Compilation rausgebracht, die sich wie das Who is Who der deutschen HipHop-Geschichte liest. Und anhört. Amis wie Cypress Hill, LL Cool J, Ludacris, Camp Lo und Masta Ace sind auch dabei, weil sie alle schonmal bei den HipHopOpen gespielt haben. 30 absolute “Big Tunes”, die meisten kennt man womöglich auswendig, was einem klar werden läßt, wie groß HipHop hierzulande geworden ist. Eine amtliche Pflichtsammlung.
… might be just the soundtrack for my upcoming weekend in Italy I was looking for. And since there lies a YUM YUM free weekend ahead of us it might just be the right stuff for you to catch up on some heavy couching.
Anyway – Diplo (Twitter) released this compilation a few weeks ago and I found this via a dear friend. Tip to the hat. Here is my favorite song so far:

While i am here on vacation in Asia i am getting more eager to hear this album when it comes out on Sept 21st by two of my most favoured artists, it must be quite a spiritual album – an album of protest songs and a true soulful gem, just telling from the titles they picked to cover. Must be a lot of Questlove involved in the crative process here, just telling from their picks. Reminds me of Questloves “Babies making Babies” compilation on BBE records. The Golden tunes on “Wake Up Sessions” are ranging from Marvins “Wholy Holy” to Donny Hathaways “Little Ghetto Boy” to Ernie Hines genius “Our Generation” which i guess was also picked for Pete Rock & C.L. Smooths take on it (sampling). A turning point in hip hop and beatmaking in general and like CL said “you only get the credit where credit is due”. All these songs on the Wake Up Sessions deserve a lot of credit, for they appear to be timeless and def the right choice to cover in the combo of the Roots & Legend. I compiled the originals, accordingly to their playlist to hype you up some more for their upcoming LP, so let me introduce you to all of the ORIGINALS which they are covering, beautiful songs, timeless classics, some forgotten, some absolutely introuvables (on vinyl and in europe at least) but all all have one thing in common: It is soul music with a soul. These tunes took me quite some time to dig up, back in the day of physical diggin. One tune in particular “Love the way it should be” was new to me and with “Compared to what” i wasnt quite sure which one they meant to cover, Roberta Flack or the much more popular Della Reeves version. But if you want it to be a spiritual album with soul, you got to have Roberta on it. So here you go. Enjoy this fine, uplifting music. Soul music with a soul
The tracklist for the new ROOTS / JOHN LEGEND Soul Cover Album coming out on September 21st, Here is the tracklist with the original songs instead of the cover versions. Enjoy this music for it is “Simply beautiful”.
To Wake up also has a deeper meaning like all things do. To put it into CLs words “The Funk legacy we pass on… everytime we sample all the past time breaks”. And that Legacy is still a 100% valid today. Go live in the NOW, be right here, right now
