Chill Tuesdays Playlist 6-14-2011
Here’s another sample of what I played last Tuesday.
1. Half Step by DJ Food: Jazz grooving over hip-hop beats. A saxophone adds the extra funk to it.
2. Lo-Fi Nu Jazz #8 by Rubin Steiner: A mixture of lounge and jungle. Retro-xylophone sounds brings to mind of a swinging sixties party as jungle provides the percussion.
3. Dirty Old Bossa Nova by Visioneers: Originally by The Howard Roberts Quartet, this version goes heavy on the percussion, something that may inspire dancing.
4. Mr. Dope by Kenny Dope: A chill song. Comes off as an instrumental MCs may want to spit verses over.
5. Huzza A Hanna by Lee “Scratch” Perry and the Upsetters: A rockin’ song created by one of the godfathers of Jamaican dub music.
6. Champagne Flute by Backini: With hip-hop beats as the backbone, this is one of those jams containing different genres. On this funky number, you’ll hear jazz singing and a flute playing classical music.
7. After Midnight by Space Gang: One of those instrumentals you would either find in the jazz section or electronica section. The keyboard sounds may say eletronica. Yet, the song serenades like a smooth jazz number.
8. La Bas by Sternklang: A down tempo joint involving scratching and upright bass.
9. Flashdance by Yael Naim: I played this as a joke. It’s a lounge version of Irene Cara’s hit song.
10. Who’s Making Love by Lou Donaldson: The legendary jazz saxophonist covers Johnny Taylor’s hit song. A Tribe Called Quest sampled this one.
