Hot off the presses, it's my latest podcast, new for 2011.
The original plan for this podcast was to make it a little more soul oriented. Early versions had Solomon Burke, Vicki Anderson and some early Funkadelic later veering into a little mainstream hip-hop with Diddy and Lloyd Banks, with some Aloe Blacc and Van Hunt thrown in the middle there.
I actually completed this podcast the last week of December. It was done, ready to be uploaded for your listening pleasure. But then I got my hands on Chico Mann's Analog Drift. And that's when the wheels fell off.
I've always said that I try to structure these things so they can function as playlists, just take my interludes out and you can play it out at a party. Which I'm aware makes no sense because if that's the goal, why record interludes at all.... but whatev. I had to include the commentary, without it, how would you know that I think Daft Punk sucks (controversial!). Anyway, I heard Chico's album, I was so blown away that I had to include something from it in the latest episode. And so, keep with the party playlist structure idea, the addition of "Once in a Lifetime" changed the song after it, and the one after that, and the one after that, and eventually the one before it and the one before that and so on until the entire episode changed. It morphed from this throwback-ish soul-y kind of thing into this turn of the century dance party. Which is just as awesome in my book. The only song that survived the massacre was Diddy's track "Strobe Lights." That's right. Diddy. Stop hating.
Ok, check it out. Let me know what you think. Emails to firstname.lastname@example.org or if you're really, really, really kind, how about an actual review (good or bad!) at my iTunes page.
Thanks for stopping by.
