Happy Halloween to all those that celebrate it! Nothing scary about this mix though just top quality rare grooves n soul from the 70's n 80's.

Choc full of goodies to keep you groovin now the nights are drawing in. Tracks include an alternate take of the Micheal Orr rare groove classic, crackin' versions from The Marriots, Dorothy Moore and The Majors and a cool track from the artist Sting- that the 70's US 'brother' Sting not the Geordie rocker, tantric sex expert!

SoulNRnB's Street Sounds Sessions 27

An absolute stonking edition of the Street Sounds mix, with my favourite tune of the moment from Erik Rico and Marc Mac called "Destiny" from thier forthcoming EP.

Other tunes of note are a great Collabo between Mark De-Clive Lowe and Sy Smith, the ever soulful Choklate, Reggie Smith back on a soul tip, and some new Joss Stone.

Hope you like, Grizzmaster General back with that rare soul vibe next week! Gotta say, was digging his Disco Soul mix alot....enjoyed that!!

DJ Grizz- Disco Soul Vol. 4

As Mr SoulNRnB said, another DiscoSoul Tag Team special- heres Vol.4 and my answer to Fridays mix. Another belter for those of you who appreciate their soul with a disco/boogie tune tinge.

Artists featured include Willie Tee, Esther Phillips and an instrumental take on an O'Jays club classic by the Armarda Orchestra (you just knew if you picked up a 12''and the band had the words 'Orchestra' in its name it was gonna be a disco/boogie cut!)

See you in a weeks time on a rare soul tip!

DJ Grizz - Soulful 80's Vol.8

Someone told me it was 80's week on Facebook so I thought I'd better carry on the theme and post volume 8 of the Soulful 80's series.

Ten more tunes from my 80's boxes including Skyy, Berres Hammond (who'll be familier to reggae fans but put out some Soul tunes in the 1980's), Woods Empire and finally one from Dr York for all you who recall the 80's roller disco craze (its making a comeback I hear!!).

See you all in a weeks time although SoulNRnB will be popping in at the end of the week.

SoulNRnB's Street Sounds Sessions 25 AND 26

Been Spoiling you of late, but as Grizz said on the mellow post, its tough days for people at the moment so lets forget the day to day grind and enjoy some good music. The last of my double Street Sounds Posts, although theres lots more of them to come and future editions feature the like of Sunshine Anderson, Erik Rico and Marc Mac, Dave Hollister and more....

Untill then, try these two:

Edition 25 has my favourite cut from Calvin Richardsons excellent "Womack-a-like" new LP, A new tune from Donell Jones, one of my new artist picks from Teresa Janee, and a great Hip Hop tune from Andree 3000 (Dont be put of soul lovers!)

Edition 26 has a great tune from the up and coming Amanda Diva, and other fresh artists like Vaughn Anthony, Yvette Rovira and Coultrain. All topped off with the O.G. Mr Ronald Isley.

I hope your still digging these mixes and hope they are keeping you up to date with whats out there. Comments have slackened off, so let us know whats up, good or bad, and big thanks to those that have sent jingles/shout out in to us.

Grizz up next, see you next weekend.

Plenty of good old laid back Soul n Jazz to ease you through your week including The Impressions, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Champaign and a blue-eyed soul cover from Kiki Dee - the 1st Brit woman to sign to Motown in the late 60's.
SoulNRnB up next and we've got lots more planned for the weeks to come including another double DiscoSoul special.

And, on top of that, they will hear their jingle on forthcoming mixes!

Top jingle will win the prize, top 3 jingles will be showcased on mixes. Closing date - November 1st, winners will be announced thereafter.

Anyhow, back to this weeks mix, and were going back to the late 70's early 80's for a great soulful boogie mix.
