A Morpheus Soul Pod-Cast & Track-Listing {Sept 30th '12}

"Make sure you have a system with some fat house speakers / So the new shit can rock, from Mars to Massapequa". The Five Footer

Ahoy! I've had a great week folks and some fantastic news to share with you all as my very good friend DJ HasH of The Temporary Residents and his lovely wife Nikia were blessed with the birth of their first born, the beautiful Melvin Jefferson III aka MJ3 was born on Wednesday evening at 8:56pm, weighing 5ibs 12oz and I am over the moon for them both. As I'm on the subject of wonderful couples, I want to send a massive congratulations to UK Soulsmith Gregory Blackman on tying the knot with his better half Rebecca last Friday, I'm gutted I couldn't make your special day guys. This pod-cast is especially dedicated to Melvin, Nikia, Greg, Becky & MJ3. One Love Family. 

On this slightly extended edition, I drop classics from Aretha Franklin, Fabulous Souls, Ohio Players & A Tribe Called Quest, as well as the dopest progressive soul, the illest instrumentals and neck snapping hip-hop with DJ Vadim, Joy Denalane, Sureshot Symphony Solution, Mystro, Black Spade, Erik Jackson, Slum Village, Homeboy Sandman, Divine ScienZe, Buscrates, José James, Bumpy Knuckles & John Robinson

A Morpheus Soul Pod-Cast & Track-Listing {Sept 22nd '12}

"For underground metaphors / You can scrape an inch below the turf, for what it's worth / My style's been developed in the core of the Earth". J-Live

Ahoy shipmates. After presenting another edition to the Rare Groove family earlier in the week with volume five, I was in two minds whether or not to post up the traditional Saturday pod-cast today as I thought the excitement may be too much for some (ha! ha! ha!). To be honest, I  just can't help myself. I've always loved listening, selecting and compiling music. As far back as I can remember, I've always wanted to be a DJ...So once again it's on with the show and there is a brief 90's anthology of hip-hop on this episode featuring classic and some hard to find records from Redman, The Pharcyde, Masta Ace, The Beatnuts, Prince Paul, Above The Law, J-Live, Method Man, Eric B & Rakim, Pharoahe Monch, Pete Rock & CL Smooth as well as the dopest progressive soul, the smoothest instrumentals and much more with Action Bronson, Dumhi, José James, Tensei, D’Angelo, Kev Brown, Jazzanova, Ralph Rip Shit, Moka Only, Clear Soul Forces, Tawiah & Tall Black Guy
