gensu From Mello Music Group:
Producer Gensu Dean has been quiet for a minute after his collaborative album with Planet Asia (Abrasions) and then his production work for 7evenThirty (The Problem). As summer starts he wanted to let his fans know where he's been musically by offering up an all new instrumental album for free. The 25 track record is meant to be a warm up to the new material Dean has coming late in 2015 and early in 2016.

Interview w/ Roger Bong of Aloha Got Soul

May 26, 2015 at 1:00 pm
Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset Last week, we aired a conversation I had with Roger Bong, a DJ who took his passion for Hawaiian records and turned it into a great blog, Aloha Got Soul, which lead to him starting his own re-issue label under the same name. Gearing up for their second release on June 22nd, Roger talked about his blog, establishing relationships with local musicians, and why he felt a re-press of his first release was good for everyone. Full tracklist available at Soundwavesradio.com

FREE Download: Pete Rock “Heaven & Hell”

May 26, 2015 at 9:00 am
peterock-heaven From Mello Music Group:
"Heaven & Earth" is the newest single from Pete Rock. An introspective beat drawn up by the original master bringing in a piano and strings driven melody while trademark drum snaps and a rubbery bassline pushes through the background. It's the type of joint that'll catch you staring out the window at the city lost in thought - an emcee's perfect canvas. Today, we thought we'd give it away as a free download as we start to gear up for the big release of "Petestrumentals 2" that is less than a month away.
The new album comes out June 23rd on Mello Music Group.

FREE Download: Scrimshire “Forgotten Songs, Vol. 3”

May 9, 2015 at 9:00 am
scrimshire-forgotten3 Dope music from From Wah Wah 45's!
"This is it. The last of the Forgotten Songs.The last remaining tracks that were initially composed after The Hollow and around Bight. Five pieces that grew up too late, or in the wrong way, to make those albums. But five songs that stuck in my head and that I wanted to share. The writing process is a long winding road and sometime there are detours. This is 5 of those tangents."

puts Every day I wake up with a song in my head.  Sometimes it's the same song for days and days.  Today's Wake Up Soundtrack comes courtesy of People Under The Stairs, from one of my favorite hip hop albums of all time, "O.S.T."  Great drums, great sample, fun content.

FREE DOWNLOAD: “Let’s Go Get ‘Em” New Orleans Brass & Funk Mix

June 11, 2014 at 10:20 am
letsgogetem-withurl I am fortunate to have worked on this mix with my friend and colleague, Derrick Ah Sam.  In February 2013, Derrick reached out to me about executing a mix he had been thinking about for a while.  After countless hours, nights after work, and weekends of getting together for a few hours a day, we released the final product in April 2014, just in time for Jazz Fest in New Orleans.  The response has been amazing and this is only the beginning. Download at: www.neworleansbrassmix.com This is a sampling of some of the sounds of the city that has truly moved my spirit since my first visit to New Orleans for the 2005 Jazz Fest. Here, we've reinterpreted and presented this music in a way that is new and fresh (thanks to a very technically challenging and amazing mix by my good friend and DJ, Frank Foreal), yet still pays proper respect to the culture and the folks that create this music. This is truly a project of passion for me. As a matter of fact, I have so much love for New Orleans, it can be challenging to find a way to accurately translate and explain my feelings for this place... Thus, I found the best way to express my affection is through music and this project, "Let's Go Get 'Em", is my personal love letter to the city of New Orleans. Happy listening! Sincerely, Derrick Ah Sam   If you like what you hear, we kindly ask that you make a small donation to The Roots of Music foundation in New Orleans. therootsofmusic.org/donate OR Text ROOTS to 88588 to donate any amount! Co-Founded by Derrick Tabb, snare drummer for the Rebirth Brass Band, The Roots of Music fills a void in music education programs in New Orleans schools. The Roots of Music empowers New Orleans youth aged 9-14 through music history and theory as well as instrumental instruction and ensemble performance preparation. They also provide educational & academic support, and mentorship while preserving and promoting the unique musical and cultural heritage of the city. Marching bands were once an integral part of New Orleans middle schools, but many schools discontinued their music programs for this age group after Katrina. Today, The Roots of Music serves over 100 students, making up a full marching band that has successfully paraded the city since Mardi Gras 2009. By donating to this organization, you can help empower the next generation of musicians who will continue to carry on the cultural legacy of the music we've presented here.
