http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/o-dub/dqRL/~5/XAeNkuRqi1g/RW008.mp3

LOOSE CHANGE : JOE CUBA

Joe Cuba Sextet - Una Nenita - http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/o-dub/dqRL/~5/KEfXE5kPJvY/una-nenita.mp3

The Joe Cuba Sextet: Mañana Te Llevo Niña From El Alma Del Barrio (Tico, 1964) Joe Cuba is an interesting figure to me insofar as his career precedes the boogaloo era by over a decade but songs like “El Pito” and “Bang Bang” are what put him and his Sextet on the map in a way that his earlier (...)

RECORD WHEEL #7 : DISCO FEVER

Been promising this one for a minute. I am, by no means, a deep disco head (that particular well runs incredibly deep) but I do respect/appreciate it. These aren’t my absolute favorite cuts but randomly selected ones that I think do a good job of showcasing the diversity of the genre. (...)

ILL BROTHERS AND ORIGIN

Ill Brothers - Quickly Disposed Of - http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/o-dub/dqRL/~5/2Rb6jOI7LC0/quickly-disposed-of.mp3

One of the cooler items I came across in whilst #digginginthetapes is a demo tape I received from Ill Brothers circa 1994. This was a Southern California crew, lead by Ill Bro Chat and Snizake. They hit my radar in ’94 with “Mescaline” and it’s possible that they sent me both the single and demo (...)

Brenton Wood: Some Got It, Some Don’t (Double Shot, 1968, 7″) Fascinating production choices on here…the way it opens, you think it’s going to be a slow-burner funk tune, ala “Cleo’s Mood/Back” but then you have those unexpected synth notes.

Eduardo Araujo - A Mulher (Cold Sweat) - http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/o-dub/dqRL/~5/zaJ0UtsV4fE/12-A-Mulher-Cold-Sweat-1.mp3

Eduardo Araujo: A Mulher (Cold Sweat) (MPB, 1969, A Onda é Boogaloo) Nowhere near as fiery as the original perhaps but those vibes! And it’s in Portuguese. I put this on Deep Covers 2 after Young Einstein put me up on it and it still rocks. 365 Days of Soul, (...)

CAM’RON : GOT THE ‘PUTERS ‘PUTIN’

Cam'Ron - Get 'em Girls - http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/o-dub/dqRL/~5/upO_yOrDmrg/04-Get-em-Girls-1.mp3

Cam’Ron: Get ‘Em Girls (Roc-A-Fella, 1994, 12″) Back during the early rise/reign of Dipset, I never quite got Cam’Ron’s appeal. To me, he was still that dude who had cut “Horse & Carriage,” which wasn’t exactly blowing my world up. But then, at some point, I heard “Get ‘Em Girls.” I. Finally. (...)

THE B.U.M.S. : IN A KNOT, SMOOTH

B.U.M.S. - Non-Stoppin the Groove - http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/o-dub/dqRL/~5/7yQYLPrEH_U/02-Non-Stoppin-the-Groove-1.mp3

The B.U.M.S.: Non-Stopping the Groove (Priority, 1995, Lyfe n Time) I remember when The B.U.M.S. first started sharing tracks on the Wake-Up Show and they felt like added evidence that no metropolis had a more diverse and creative scene than the Bay at this point in the ’90s. B.U.M.S. worked (...)

THE MANDELLS : GIVE MY LOVE A LITTLE MORE TIME

Mandells, The - Think Back - http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/o-dub/dqRL/~5/tklddc8Sm3Y/think-back.mp3

The Mandells: Think Back (Trans World, 196?, 7″) Soul single out of Chicago. It’s all about this. This song is like an encapsulation of my favorite everythings about soul. If you don’t find yourself gripping your fists, closing your eyes and belting out the chorus every time it swings around, (...)

THE MANDELLS : TEARS ON MY PILLOW

The Mandells - There Will Be Tears Pt. 1 - http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/o-dub/dqRL/~5/J3IC4O3qaZk/01-There-Will-Be-Tears-Pt.-1-1.mp3

The Mandells: There Will Be Tears, Part 1 (Trans World, 196?, 7″) I like this one enough to put it on Let It Whirl. It’s like the platonic ideal of a Northern soul “cooker,” especially that ace baseline powering it. Compared to yesterday’s Mandells single, this one was more “in-house.” The (...)
