6 months of Based on the Beat! We celebrate with GUTS! No, not the gory stuff, but the french hip-hop group. Yeah, that’s it. Come spend an hour with us as we expose you to new releases this week including BANKS, Shit Robot and a track from the long awaited Aphex Twins album! 13 years baby. Plus, we throw in some oldies to round out the show. That’s how we do it. Based on the Beat style… come on in.
This week it’s all about the beats! We feature the latest album from the collective known as Soulection: part record label, part radio show and niche collective of creative music makers worldwide. Based in LA, Soulection latest LP features artist from the LA scene. Jesse Robinson also drops a new track from Flying Lotus and music from Lil Silva amoung others. Loosen up your neck as you will certainly bob your head during the next hour.
The year was 1995. Chicago house music was going through a Renaissance. Jesse Robinson was at Gramaphone Records, (ground zero for Chicago house) buying records. During the show, he shares some of his favorite house tracks from back in the day. It’s all vinyl, and it’s all underground. Enjoy. (Sorry guys for the lack of downloads. I didn’t realize how rare these songs where when I recorded. Seriously, I could only find 3 on iTunes. I’ll keep looking, but in the meantime enjoy the show.)
An amazing mix of underground house by DJ Jes who worked at Gramaphone and he sold me most of the records I feature in this show. In fact, he’s the one I mention during the show who would keep a stash of records off to the side for me.
You want ‘electronic’ music? You got it. Machinedrum is our feature musician this week. We delve into his most recent album ‘Vapor City’, as well as, explore the jungle inspiration of his music with a rare withdrawal from Jesse Robinson’s vinyl vault. Throw in some Mizell Brothers, a little Brazilian music, a new track from Caribou and a KILLER track from Dorian Concept and you got this week’s music gumbo. Based on the Beat style. Bon Appétit!
FaltyDL dropped a new album and we couldn’t be happier to feature his music this week. As well as, new tracks from Amp Live, Floating Points and Caribou. We squeeze in some reggae (and an awesome remake of a classic) and some Afro Beat. Lock in for an hour of interesting, brain stem massaging music by Jesse Robinson.
This week Jesse Robinson focuses on the music of Taylor McFerrin and plays tracks off the new album “Early Riser”. Also in the mix is new music from Shabazz Palaces, Lil Silva, Falty DL and Caribou to name a few. We focus on the spaces in between Electronica, Jazz, Hip-Hop, World and Dance. Come and listen along.
Clap! Clap! – Please Mother Rain Wash Our Souls From Human Evil
Here’s a great photo of rapper Ishmael Butler of Shabazz Palaces as mention during the show. Just your average ‘taking the snakes out for a walk to the swapmeet’ kinda day.
Listen to a new track from the forthcoming Clap! Clap! album named ‘Tayi Bebba’ Available September 8th.
This is the Barrington Levy’s double album that I mentioned during the show. It’s pretty much all you need to get all the Levy that’s fit for listening. Put it on and you’ll have hours of great Reggae. Unfortunately you can’t download, it’s only available on CD or vinyl (NOTE: Affiliate link).
Hope you enjoyed the show and have a week filled with good music!
Experts agree that ‘good music’ can have a big impact on your health. In this show Jesse Robinson gives you plenty of good music from the 5 major food groups: Electronica, Jazz, Hip-Hop, World, Dance and all the weird places in between. This week we focus on the music of Brazilian artist Lucas Santtana. New music from Taylor McFerrin and Lost Midas. Some classic tracks from Ramp and Lewis Taylor, as well as killer dance tracks from Dave Aju and Ossie! This is an hour you don’t want to miss!
It seems like this week, more songs than usual are FREE downloads! So I named this week’s show Free Music! I hope you enjoy the mix of Electronica, Jazz, Hip-Hop/Rap, World, Dance and everything in between.
