Us & Us – Episode 15

With as many artists as we lost in 2009, the idea of living tributes became more of a necessity. Appreciating someone’s talent while they still walk the earth is always a good thing and I think that Shawn Lee is certainly worthy of such recognition. Constantly busy, insanely prolific, and absolutely unstoppable, Mr. Lee is one of the coolest soul men on the planet. This episode takes time out to celebrate his work…

    Appreciate the love as always, Fonik. P.S. I need the Aesthetics series back in my life…

  • Trust In Bass

    Us and Us is my favorite podcast on PFR. To me, it was interesting to note how similar your personal history is compared to my own (student radio, writing, djing, later podcasting). I love how likeminded djs keep putting out great music on PFR. Nuff said – Thanks for another great selection!

    Ditto Jonas. Us & Us has been one of the biggest highlights for me over the near 10 years of running this site.

    Awesome show Macedonia as ever. Must go find that Shawn Lee One Thing track!

  • http:/ macedonia

    His cover of “One Thing” is on an album called Hits The Hits…it’s all covers. Surf guitar version of “Get Ur Freak On”, Outkast’s “Hey Ya!” as if it were done by The Ramsey Lewis Trio, he even has the nerve to take on Britney’s “Toxic” with a sitar and make it sound good. It’s probably one of the best guilty pleasure albums to drop in the last five years…

    perfect soundtrack to my friday evening!
