DJ Grizz - Soulful 80's Vol.15

We are having an unseasonally warm spring here in London and the kids playing outside, the smell of BBQ's and outdoor drinking have all started early this year. Puts me in mind of my youth back when all these tunes were new releases! Its Soulful 80's 15!

Kicks off with an 80's favorite from Melba Moore, some Change, an 80's gospel offering from Rance Allen, The Jammers and finished off with a Keni Burke stepper plus 5 more 80's goodies.

SoulNRnB will have a final March mix later this week, and I'll kick off the Easter week with some more magic from deep in the crates.

SoulNRnB's Street Sounds Sessions 78

Our penultimate mix for new music March features some real good music from favorites and newer atrists alike.

As we mentioned a coupla weeks back, Sy Smith has a new Mark De-Clive Lowe LP out that has some great 80's inspired grooves on it (including the duet with Rahsaan Paterson included of Billy Oceans "Nights"), Soulpersona takes us back with an excellent Jazz Funk styled tune featuring Punk Pappa, Ruben Studdard provides some R&B, and friend of the mixtape Philip Clark shows his tender side.

Some real old school grooves on here besides the Sy Smith and Soulpersona, with 2 steppers from Sam Sparro and Mr. Bird and some 90's style soul from Krystal Klear. If your looking for a more modern vibe though, Sarah MK provides a great tune from her new EP and Dwele re-boots an old Spacek tune.

Enjoy this mix, one more new mix next week and then back to some more featured atrist mixes. Till then, Grizz is going to show off his wedge, elephant cords, leg warmers and Espadrills in the cover to his 80's mix on Monday.

DJ Grizz- Soul Niceness 33

Its the start of another week, but never fear- rare groove is here... with Niceness 33.

Choc full of outstanding rare groove n soul goodness including Anita 'Ring my bell' Ward, an Edna Wright version of the Greg Perry rare groove anthem, 60's legend (and still gigging) Jimmy James brings us an oft covered soul tune, and topped off with a rare live version of the Gil Scott Heron classic... plus 6 more corkers!

Back in an soulful 80's musical vein next week. SoulNRnB up next and fingers crossed his mix will remain undisturbed by the man this week.

SoulNRnB Street Sounds Sessions 77

Week three of New Music March brings us even more hot music.

Two collaborations from Miles Bonny feature here, showing off his various skills. Names like Estelle and cover star Teri Tobin feature (Teri's new single, an excellent ballad, is a highlight). But youll also find quality in the Raphael Saadiq produced tune from Le'andria Johnson, lashings of soul with Gregory Porter, Jonny Sass, plus Neptunes Chad Hugo goes hip hop with Stalley. If your not a hip hop head, dont be put off by the inclusion of Kanye West on Tony Williams tune, its a corker too.

Hope the new music is hitting the spot, we will be back next week with even more new stuff to clean out your eardrums. Till then, Grizz will keep you company.

SoulNRnB Street Sounds Sessions 76

Here we go with Part 2 of "New Music March" with the latest Street Sounds.

We've Championed Mark De-Clive Lowe on the blog quite a bit, and this week Sy Smith released her MdCL produced LP "Fast and Curious" (Worth a purchase!), so nows a good time to feature his excellent Jazz Version of Aaliyah's "More than a Woman" featuring Nia Andrews on vocals. One of my tunes of the year so far for sure.

Theres great stuff from Phony PPl with a joint that musically takes me back to early eighties Brit funk, a stepper from Personal Life, new artist Colie Williams with the message song "Black Love" plus new Raheem Devaughn.

And then theres the cover star. Truth be told, I miss the Instant Vintage/Ray Ray Raphael Saadiq, so these new unreleased tunes from an LP he was goig to record pre-Vintage are a godsend. Another unreleased tune in a future mix, in the meantime check out "They dont know you" featuring Common and Ledisi!

Grizz taking you back in the future (Monday to be exact!), and we will have SSSS 77 here next week.

SoulNRnB's Street Sounds Sessions 75

There is so much new music out there at the moment, that I'm going to have to leave Grizz do the retrospectives for the next 3-4 weeks whilst I catch you all up on whats out there now. As you know, hes more than capable, so you wont miss a thing. Ill get back to my Artist mixes etc once weve got you all up to date. Speaking of Street Sounds mixes, I've also uploaded 60-69 to rapidshare for those that want some of last years good stuff.

So, whats in Volume 75? Cover star Conya Doss for starters, whose music I've been a big fan of, and who has a new LP out soon. Her single "Don't Change" keeps up her high standards. Neptunes produced Yuna is a name to watch out for, as is a member of our Twitter family Juanita, the Danish group Boom Clap Bachelors, and Lolah Brown. Then there's music from (Now an O.G!) Joe, and a remix of one of my favourite Dwele tunes, "A.N.G.E.L".

Enjoy, Volume 76 hitting the blog next week, lets make March "New Music Month" on the Soul Mixtape.
