DJ Zaz Brown – Mingle Music for Sophistos

Play

I’d like to sincerely apologize to you all who tuned into my shows before. I did not realize that most of the tracks were recorded to Mono, robbing you of a good experience.

Now that I’ve gotten the technical mishaps out of the way, I went straight analog to give you all something jazzy to sip dark brown stuff too. Crush velvet jackets are optional but highly advised.

Got some heavy hitting artists doing their thing, providing a soundtrack for you to feel mackish to. Most of this is vinyl so I left in the snaps and pops for nostalgia. That’s how it should be unless you got it like that. I through one single from Smoke City in the mix off the digital (promo copy) but that was it. Outro was an amazing last minute find…part two is coming. It’s getting cold out so might as well give ya’ll something smooth to entertain other sophistos with.

Stay Tuned…

Track list:
Lalo Schifrin – Fortune Tellers
Dr. Buzzard/Original Savanna Band – Soraya/March of the Nignes
Billy Cobham – Bolinas
Roy Ayers – Don’t you Say No
Herb Alpert – The Factory
Herbie Hancock – Trust Me
Anita Baker – Mystery
Lonnie Liston Smith – Visions Of a World (Phases I & II)

DJ ZAZ Brown – Greenz Like That

Play

Just as the title states, I made a mean pot of collard greens to standard. Smoked turkey necks and all that. I know all the vegan listeners got mad, but these greens are good.

Anyways…this time around I added the main ingredient of Soulection artists. Evil Needle, Sango and Ta-ku have been serving up very nice independent releases that fly under the radar. They can be found on Soundcloud but throw them some change on Bandcamp. Also in the mix is my local yokels…The Cornel West Theory and my man John Wesley Moon mashing up Jamiroquai.

If you have a question on where to get any of the tracks, hit me in the comments section.

Us & Us: “Digging Is Therapy…”
A Motion Mixtape for Phuture Frequency, transmitting from Mount Vernon, New York, USA.
Supplying musical therapy by way of vinyl, CD, cassette, and MP3.

It never fails: I always end up spending more time with my vinyl once Record Store Day comes and goes. This all-vinyl mix includes some old favorites as well as new additions to the collection. The inclusion of Portishead was unexpectedly timely given their recent Glastonbury performance. I finally get a chance to represent for one of my favorite Talking Heads album cuts, plus the Theo Parrish/Tony Allen collaboration is a current favorite with me right now. In light of the recent passing of soul singer Darondo, I included Tall Black Guy’s re-edit of one of his songs. And Dilla’s shown some love through a Raymond Scott sample origin and a remix of “Waves” from the Donuts album. Not sure who was behind that, but respect is due: it’s b eautiful.
