this track’s makin me kinda emotional today! i miss when good music used to connect to you on a level so deep it makes you think of things that you may not even have realised have become such a big thing in your life! tony toni tone - where in the world are all my albums!? i need an emergency replenishment of good soul music! i used to have so much! ugh! i hope some of you were blessed by this!
gettin down to this mix right now! too much flavour!! :D
one of my favourite singers, jill scott! one reason why soul music will always have a place in my heart is because while music that is promoted to us becomes more and more watered down and superficial, there is music out there with content and context. the type where singers are real singers and dont need the music to prove the quality of their vocal skills, and music where without the music itself, the lyrics are well written and tell a story people can relate to if they have been there before, or articulate to those who havent. music where even the instrumental without vocals can still conjour up positive vibes and emotions! music which is thick, and rich with nutrition! music is something else!
whaaaaaaaaaaaaat! my goodness, rick james, ur killin me with this one! every time i hear this track, i swear the funk in it makes my nose bleed, n the dance that follows is as involuntary as tourettes! aaaaaaaaaaaargh!! DOIN IT!
what i would give to see them live! Jamiroquai! if you dont know bout em, for me, they’re probably one of the funkiest groups of modern mainstream music! so hard to put em into a ‘category’! u can hear the influences from soul music of the 70s n 80s! the use of the base and electric guitars, the vocal arrangements, backing vocals, and general vibe is just incredible! jus listen to the breakdown right at the end with the bongos etc… WHAT!?!? you can see him goin off on stage FEELING the music!! thats real music to me - something you feel… and they’re so diverse in what they produce! enjoy, ladies and gentlemen!
ah mayn, this song… iv posted this before but bwoy! came across it again, and jus dropped everythin! i love the effect that music has. the way one song can sum up your emotions in a way you sometimes cant articulate alone. beautiful song!
ugh! this one here!?… we need music you can rock to back in the mainstream. this is one of those you dont even need to dance to, u can just imagine a whole room full of people jus 2 steppin, lookin high coz their mind’s taken to that place of peace they havent been to in so long! enjoy, ladies and gentlemen! and God Bless! :D
my gosh, almost forgot about this throwback! one to bump to! dont talk! just enjoy! :D
Please never forget how dope the previous generations of singers were! how raw, how they made you feel, how they produced such timeless music that they are being remade over and over again, even today! Stevie Wonder is no exception, and this is only ONE of my favourites from him that i wanted to share with you! have fun! have soul! n jus smile! listen. to the music :D
anyone who knows me knows my fascination with history of this culture, and heres an interview with an instrumental figure in locking!
Soul is the dance, funky is the extra

Music is what feelings sound like
