The New LoFi

Ten Years

Soul Sunday #2

Welcome to Soul Sunday Episode #2, your mellifluous invitation to sit back, turn up your speakers, and do whatever you we’re going to do anyways, just with a better soundtrack.

Heard Em Say – MZ Boom Bap & Curtis Roach

Sweet golden era vibes on this one. You might remember this track from the “Sound of the City” mix. It’s part of Mz Boom Bap’s new album “The Rawness”, a genuine homage to the golden era.

The Right Song – Free n Losh (Feat.Terrell Morris)

“I think we should turn the lights off
The right song could get them tights off”

O Heaven – Blu & Exile

With a sample taken from Ella Fitzgerald’s How High The Moon, this track from West Coast emcee Blu and produced by Exile is reminiscent of that classic 90’s sound that so many people bitch and moan about missing and saying that it’s non-existent. Turns out you just have to dig a little deeper than you used to.

Black Body – Spek One (Feat Shi Wisdom)

A jazzy, politically charged hip-hop track that borrows lyrics from the iconic anti-racism song “Strange Fruit and a sample from Luchi De Jesus’s “Round Midnight”.

Yours – SG Lewis

Against a backdrop of raindrops, ‘Yours’ takes mellow to a whole new level, with deep bass, light drums and delicate keys on show. Fellow rising star Raye makes an appearance via some pitched down vocals.

Enjoy. Until next time kids… stay soulful.
