People get ready...a change is gonna come

Download Here

As a build up to this Saturday's gig by The Roots with John Legend in London I thought I'd do a compilation along similar lines to the tracks they covered. There's a bit of Max Roach, Gil Scott Heron, Curtis Mayfield, Barabara Mason, James Brown, Rose Royce, Otis Redding, Jimi Hendrix and more...

Zentrip 5

Number 5 in this series. Did this a while ago but moved house hence the delay. It was inspired by the Ninja Tunes XX celebrations, the Hidden Orchestra and the latest Timeless release, a tribute to Dilla.

Alif Tree - Rain River
Hidden Orchestra - Footsteps
Christian Prommer's Drumlesson - Elle
The Penguin Cafe Orchestra - Isle of View (music for helicoptor pilots

Modern Marvel

This is all about the best kind of hip hop there is. It starts with a bit of 90s acid jazz type business including, yes that Digable Planet classic and the first of a spoken word centred track. After that, Erykah, Kelis, Gang Starr, Nas, Common and Marvin (see what I mean?!). Some beautiful poetry from Saul Williams and Blackalicious. But the pinnacle is the two Mos Def tracks, off one of most underrated albums of recent times, The New Danger; the sweet flow of Sunshine and the epic Modern Marvel. It samples Marvin and it is totally worthy. It ends with a guy who is leading way in future soul AND is from London! Enjoy it, I have.

US3 - It's like that
