My New Radio Show: The Expedition

September 16, 2015 at 2:09 pm
The Expedition on Dash Radio I am producing and hosting a brand new radio show on the Dash Radio Network.  "The Expedition - A Journey Into Sound with Frank Foreal" is all about uncovering music,new and old, from all over the world. New bands, producers, DJ's, as well as vintage finds. I'm very excited to be producing this show alongside fellow music junkies, Derrick Ah Sam and Michelle Choug, who I've spent many hours (and years) with talking about music that we love.  The Expedition airs every Friday at 5pm PT /8pm ET, with a re-broadcast every Saturday at 7pm PT / 10pm ET. You can listen to our recent archives via our new Mixcloud page, and make plans to tune in this week.  We could also use your support via all social media networks: find us on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter @EXPEDITIONRADIO.  If you enjoy what you hear, please like and share! That being said, this is a bittersweet moment, as I will be stepping away from my duties on Soundwaves Radio, a great program that I have had the honor to work on the past 20 months. Without Sean Osborn's generosity, bringing me on the airwaves with him, Val The Vandle, and Francesca Harding, I could not have earned the confidence and experience to lead me to this point. I am so grateful to you all!

Pete Rock – On & On – YouTube

Pete_Rock_Gasface_2 Pete Rock shows again that he's a Tru Master with the beats.  This is probably my favorite joint of his new instrumental album, Petestrumentals 2, available now via Mello Music Group.  For those a little too young to remember, the first volume of this was released on BBE records in 2001, and featured some of Pete's best work to date.

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.

FREE Download: Pete Rock “Heaven & Hell”

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.

Exile “It’s Coming Down”

exile-radio1 Nobody's sampled Heatwave like this, so shut up.

Chris Brown “Til I Die (Instrumental)”

I don't know why I like this track but I do.  Sort of a spacey beat, with a touch of tolerable dubstep transformer modulations.  I HATE the lyrics, the video, and everything else about it, but this instrumental could stand to have someone else's accapella on it.

Don't judge me.

Spaced out g-funk instrumental goodness from this Tokyo based producer.  Buy this record, and hit the ten freeway.

I spoke to Khalil a few days ago, and we decided to throw up all of our old Fresh Air material for free download.  I need to upload more, but, for now, you can download our EP, "Slowly Coming Along," for free.
