SoulNRnB's Street Sounds Sessions 100

So here we are. 100 Volumes of our mixes that aim to highlight all thats new and soulful in Soul, Jazz, House, and Hip Hop. We aim to give as much credence to Independent's as we do big name, Major label artists. All that matters is the music. Here's hoping you've discovered something new over the past 100 volumes.

So, whats contained in the latest edition?

We kick off with two excellent ballads, from Tone Trezure and Tweet. Tweet gave us the slow jam of last year in "Trouble", and this is a new tune of her forthcoming release. I cant wait. There are other big names like Raheem Devaughn, Slum Village feat. Kameron Corvet, and the new release from the great Foreign Exchange who are realeasing 2 LP's this year. One a remix compilation, and their long awaited follow up to "Authenticity".

Then we have "Ones to watch" - Seravince, whose new LP you need to check out on their Bandcamp page; and the Endangered whose "Dollars" is another classy, soulful tune from them.

I'm back with an artists mix next week, I will leave you in Grizz's capable hands till then.
