Our Love is Our Power



A mix of new soul, r&b love and loose-limbed funk, inspired and informed by my recent discovery of the musician Jamie Woon. Jeremy Sole dropped Woon's track "Lady Luck" on his KCRW show a couple of weeks ago, and I've been rocking it on the headphones every day since. I built this mix around 3 Jamie Woon tracks that I love, and they appear at the beginning, middle and end. Supporting the mood are jams by Raphael Saadiq, Digable Planets, Sade, Aloe Blacc, The Bees, Erykah Badu, Jamie Lidell, Lauryn Hill, The Roots, Andreya Triani, Galactic, Pharcyde and the Spinners. DIG IT Y'ALL!

Summersauce Doubleshots



Two tracks each from the musicians I am diggin on the most in this midsummer glory stretch....I expect many of these artists to make Fundi's Best of the Year list in a few months, cuz they so good. I been listening to some of these albums over & over & over again. The songs in this mix are all pretty new except for the Band of Horses tracks -- hitched my wagon to their sounds only recently. Much funk and hip hop, blended with introspective folk and some modern blues.

"Summersauce Doubleshots" features The Roots, Band of Horses, The Black Keys, Janelle Monae, Big Boi, Quantic , Jack Johnson, Bonobo, Aloe Blacc, M.I.A., Flying Lotus, The Tallest Man in the World, Trombone Shorty and Josh Ritter.
