DJ Grizz- Mellow Grooves Vol.15

Well the Xmas goods are already in the shops, the nights are drawing in...Summers definately over! Never mind- take some time out to let the river of life flow over you- Mellow Grooves 15!

Ten soulful chill out nuggets from the old days. Includes an 'end of the party' slow dance classic from High Energy, Northern hero- Jack Montgomery, disco kings Cloud One slow the tempo down and Swedish Jazz funker Nils Landgren does a nice cover of the Roberta Flack classic. Also The Stylistics, Nancy Wilson and more.

Mr S up soon and I'll be back rare grooving it in a week.

Sorry guys- looks like the fun police have decided that, despite it being a mix that promotes the music and half of the stuff on here being hard to find anyway, that we cannot share! Will try 'n' re-up but likely it won't stay up for long!

DJ Grizz- New Funk Special, The Baker Brothers

Evening mixtapers and as the week and the UK summer draw to a close its time for another New Funk installment, this week ten top tunes from The Baker Brothers band.

Now I know recent New Funk mixes have met with the wrath of the 'Copyright Police' but a plea if if I may...! All the music on this site, old and new, is in mix form, put there from our own collections to be enjoyed by like minded Soul lovers. If my experience is right the music lovers/crate diggers/beat collecters who frequent here are very likely to go out and source an original, full copy of the stuff they really like so taking the mix down seems like an own goal to us (and being a West Ham fan I'm familier with those).

Enough soapboxing- on with the music. The Baker Brothers are one of my favourite upfront bands who champion those old Soul/Jazz/Funk grooves we love on this blog. Hailing from the South of England the Brothers can be tracked down gigging round the UK, Europe and Japan and any band that can get the Average White Bands Hamish Stuart to guest on their tracks are OK by me!!

Back to the rare grooves next week after SoulNRnB does his midweek stuff.

SoulNRnB's Street Sounds Sessions 92

Its about time we hade this dude on our cover, been a quality year for him with some great music. Diggs Duke's "Nine Winning Wives" features on this mix, check out his bandcamp page too (

But thats not it. A great remix from the UK's Reel People of an Aaries classic, Neptunes produced Robin Thicke, Talib Kweli collaborates with the great 9th Wonder, the return of Anita Baker. They're the names.

New talent you ask? What about a tune from a GREAT new EP from Joanna Borromeo? Friend of the mixtape Sarasvati with "Gold Scraps"? Plus a shiver down the spine remix by Freddie Joachim of a Chester Gregory tune........and more believe it or not.

Grizz returns after the weekend, Im back next week with another WHITE LABEL.
