“Mrs Officer” (Lil Wayne Cover) James Eric

Great Cover, taken straight from Sweet Serenade Vol 3, coming this month!

[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Black-Bug.mp3]

“Black Bug” Wick-it

Finally a good mix of that Big Boi Tune, and a good re-use of the Black Keys.

[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Mayer_Hawthorne-No_Strings_DJ_Jazzy_Jeff_Remix.mp3]

“No Strings” Mayer Hawthorne (Jazzy Jeff Rmx)

Jazzy Jeff delivers and somehow this remix is more exciting than most of his late efforts.

“F**k You” William Shattner (Cee Lo Green Cover)

A cover version as only Captain Kirk can deliver. Bleep my captain says. Video rip.

[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Ill-be-your-Pillow-Eliza-Doolittle.mp3]

“I’ll be your Pillow” Eliza Doolittle

Not really new, just me being late on her, but i am hooked on Eliza Doolittles music.

[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Janelle_Monae-Without_A_Fight.mp3]

“Without a Fight” Janelle Monae

Its Janelle Monae and that means its good these days. Soulful double timer and JMs edgy vocals.

[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/tightrope.mp3]

“Tightrope” (Janelle Monae Cover) Conor J. O Brien from Villagers

Cant go wrong with this tune.

[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Mountain-Top.mp3]

“Mountain Top” Bedouin Soundclash

The Guitar tune belongs to Bedouin Soundclash.

[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Rudies-all-around-Hepcat.mp3]

“Rudies all around” Hepcat

A little re-discovered gem that i had on a late 90ies comp, dont know anything else bout it, but some great reggae primer.

[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Sarah-Blasko-%E2%80%93-Hey-Ya-Outkast-Cover.mp3]

“Hey Ya” (Outkast Cover) Sarah Blasko

Another great Cover, we’ve played the Obediah version years ago, still Sarah Blasko has nice voice, the songs a great pop tune and another ipod favourite at present.

[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Talib-Kweli-1st-Time.mp3]

“1st Time” Talib Kweli

Kwelis comeback tune. Talib does it, the sample does the rest. Simple as that.

[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Think-It-Over.mp3]

“Think It Over” Bilal a soulful gem, we’ve had the accoustic version on here before and this one is almost as good, but Bilal stands the test and is definitely the successor of the 70ies soul legends.

Kanyes been putting out tune after tune on a weekly basis for the past 3 months or so. These two are noteworthy besides, a few others (most notably Monster) that we had up on the site before.

[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Chain-Heavy.mp3]

“Chain Heavy” Kanye West f. Talib Kweli & Consequence

[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Looking-for-Trouble.mp3]

“Looking for Trouble” Kanye West ft. Pusha T, Cyhi the Prynce, Big Sean & J. Cole

Jay-Z ft Lil Wayne – Summer in Brooklyn (Quincy Jones Cookin Soul Remix)

Big up to Cookin Soul, as usual they deliver the goods. Best remix of “Hello Brooklyn”to this date.  A new reuse of Quincy Jones “Summer in the City”, there have been a huge stack of songs using that very same sample during the years, like Dj Spinna, the Roots, Black Moon, Nightmares on wax etc, etc – the list goes on and on, but i am really glad someone put it into such a nice context and made a real great vid to it. Enjoy this fine summer wine.
