Street Sounds Sessions

Back in the early 1980s, the Street Sounds Electro albums were a huge influence on me and they’re largely responsible for getting me into hip-hop and electro. Not only did they feature some great tunes, they were really well mixed too. Fast forward more than 30 years and Street Sounds is still going, with the original founder, Morgan Khan, at the helm. Every week, Morgan and Andy Smith do a 2 hour podcast where they play tunes from the early Street Sounds era, including soul, funk, hip-hop and of course, electro. Each show is available as a download which you can check out, HERE. I believe that the Street Sounds guys are going to be launching a 24 hour radio station later this year, so if/when that happens I’ll post some details about it, but until then, big up to Morgan Khan for keeping Street Sounds alive!

Street Sounds!

There’s no way to embed a player for this one, but you can check it out at Mixcrate or on Spinbad’s website. The track listing is quite long, so I won’t post it here, but it’s available on Mixcrate.

DJ Excel – Live @ The Do-Over

This mix was posted up by DJ Excel back in July. I don’t know why I didn’t post it up at the time, but the reason I’m posting it now is because it’s my favourite mix of 2013. I usually favour studio mixes over live sets, but I chose this as my mix of 2013 because it’s packed full of wicked tunes (it features over 70 tracks) and it’s really well mixed. No track listing is included, but it’s a multi-genre mix featuring soul, funk, hip-hop and one or two other bits and pieces. I had a go at IDing the tunes and got most of them, so if you want an incomplete track listing have a look at this thread on my forum. Enjoy!
