A Morpheus Soul Pod-Cast & Track-Listing {28th Jul '12}

Summer Edition / Remembering Amy


I finally turned forty earlier in the week and London Town has been blessed with glorious sunshine almost everyday. On this Special Summer Edition, I thought I'd drop the heat with SupaHot progressive soul grooves & hip-hop jams featuring brand new music, alongside even more  
Morpheus Soul Favourites with DJ Jazzy Jeff, Mark De Clive Lowe, Action Bronson,  
Señor Kaos, Lone Catalysts, Incognito,  Eric Roberson, SkyzooGrand Puba    
The Globetroddas, Q-Tip & Phonte.

Remembering Miss Amy Jade Winehouse {14 September 1983 – 23 July 2011}

It's been one year since music lost a truly unique voice, but we will never forget. I pay special tribute with beautiful songs featuring Shuko, Bugz In The Attic, Ty, Funky DL, Rufus Dipper, Pyrelli, Akua Naru & Amy Winehouse R.I.P.

Earlier in the week I was listening to Def Squad's 1998 album El Niño and the bass line on one particular track produced by Erick Sermon always makes me say DAMN!!!   
The Connoisseurs Corner features the original Marcus Belgrave's "Space Odyssey"...Check It!
