RnB heads have a new track from Syleena Johnson, A tune I actually like from Beyonce's new LP featuring the rare appearence of OutKasts Andre 3 stacks, and 00's faves Jagged Edge.

First up of the sites mega-packs, this is all 12 volumes of the Rare Groove Specials we blogged at the start of the site.

With the rapidshare links dying to some of these, I thought Id take the opportunity to put these up in an easy 1 link download for those who have requested.

Tracklists can be found on the original blog posts, but if I were you, I'd just hit the DL link. Not a duff tune contained within!!

I'll put a pack up once in a while. Enjoy.

Double LP Weekend!! SoulNRnB's Street Sounds Sessions 45 & 46

Well, there's an absolute deluge of new tunes coming our way at the moment, so here is another Double LP's worth of new tunes for you all to enjoy!

First Up:  Street Sounds Sessions 45

 What can I say about the return of Kindred The Family Soul but.....AT LAST! Great tune from them. Then; How can you not get excited about a new Ayah/Jazzy Jeff Collabo? One of my Fave tunes at the moment. Follow that up with more Dezaray Dawn, Osunlade, and a rare appearance from Ali Shaheed Muhammed (of ATCQ and Lucy Pearl fame) and you've got a great half hour of music.

But is that it? HELL NO!!

Nikka Costa is back with new material and I personally cant wait for a new LP. More tunes from Dego (of 4Hero), Kindred (One tune is not enough) and Havana whose new LP you should really check out. But then, to top this week off, we have a club tune from the great Omar, plus more quality summer sounds from Mr Eric Roberson.

Now. Don't tell your parents were spoiling you.

Grizz back with more quality shortly.

As I mentioned the Soul Niceness mixes will be coming thick and fast as I've tons of good rare groove and soul sitting here crying out to be shared.
Niceness 23 contains contributions from Roy Ayres, The Stylistics, Marva Whitney and Brothers by Choice. Plus 6 other head nodding, 2 stepping, quality nuggets from the 70's & 80's shelves.
Finally a big thanks to SoulNRnB for his first class contrbution to the 'Uplifting' series. Yes the worldwide recession has hit our corner of East London but hey..... when I hear 'Life is hard' I always ask 'Compared to what?'.
Back next week in a Lovers Rock fashion!

DJ Grizz- On a Jazz Tip Vol.5

Ok- I know i promised a Mellow Groove mix (and I'll post it next week, promise!!) but I could'nt let Mr S's very good NuSoulJazz mix pass without an old school response. So here's 'On a Jazz Tip 5'- packed full of jazz funk, fusion n latin goodies from the vaults for ya'll!

Features Kathryn Moses (from an LP with a terrible album cover LOL), some Donald Byrd Mizzel magic, and one of my fave Gil Scott tunes, by way of tribute, from the Bridges LP. Finished off with 2 sublime chill out tracks with about 40 years between them, Build an Ark from last year and Frank & Tony from a long time ago!

Enjoy and I'll catch you later

SoulNRnB's Nu Soul Jazz Volume 2

Its been a long while since Volume 1, but good things take time!!

Volume 1 is one of the most downloaded mixes on this site and I have had lots of mail asking for a second volume. Had to make sure that the quality matched the first one, so it took a while.

Absolute class from Mark De Clive Lowe with a tune from his new EP (that you must get hold of!! HERE: ), the great Rebirth with a remake of a rare groove classic thats not on thier excellent LP, and one of my faves from last year from Nathan Haines with a tune very reminicent of Shaun Escoffereys great "Space Rider" tune from back in the day.....

Lots more to like, if you dont recognise some of the artists dont let that put you off!!

Just a quick note to say that I have switched File Hosting sites from Rapidshare to Fileserve due to costs....shouldn't affect you too much but keep an eye out for older mixes as they may start to disappear soon.........

Grizz back next week.
