I'm having difficulty here...I'm working on 3 different mixes right now. This means that I probably won't be able to post a real one for at least another week. In the meantime, listen to the new Diplo and Santogold mixtape called "Top Ranking".
The other day, I found a track by M.I.A. and Santogold called "Get It Up" that's featured on the mixtape. It features remixes of her own songs as well as other artists that I assume she's been inspired by. It's difficult to classify the style of songs that are on here...which is fine by me.
Give it a shot. You might like what you hear.
(oh...and if you are the artist or represent the artist and need me to remove this, just leave a comment and I'll take it off)

I don't even know what to write about this podcast. It's the second in the series and it was inspired because I will be seeing The Roots perform for the 3rd time later this month - two weeks before I head to Lollapalooza in Chicago.
Again, I don't even know what to write about it. I'm in music-listening and appreciating overdrive.
Here's "This Is Hip Hop".
1. Common (featuring GZA and Pharrell) - Announcement (paul remix)
2. Deltron 3030 - Mastermind
3. Pharoahe Monch - Simon Says (paul remix)
4. Jaylib (feat. Pharoahe Monch, Black Thought and Dice Raw) - The Red (paul remix)
5. The Roots - Step Into The Realm (paul remix)
6. Common - Misunderstood
7. RZA - Mantis (paul remix)
8. Redman - Rite Now
9. Nas (feat. Dilla) - Blaze A 50 (paul remix)
10. Ol' Dirty Bastard - Hippa To Da Hoppa

This is a podcast for those moments where you feel nostalgic for that classic hip hop and when you need that old school boom bap beat. Even if you haven't consciously thought about it before, play this mix and listen to the sultry sounds that are not only harmony-mixed...but blended with care. You'll soon discover that you can now define that mood you once thought you couldn't define. Crazy, hey?
So enjoy the sounds of 80s and 90s hip hop at it's finest.
