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.

This week we try a new format! I’m fitting all the music genres that I love and that’s worth listening to in one hour! Woo Hoo! So, we break it down like this: 1) New Artist in the Electronic realm then, 2) we play some Jazz (or could be called Soul Jazz) that you should have in your collection then, 3) we hit the Beats and “Hip Hop and the Broccoli Beef” then on to 4) World Music which this week will focus on the city of Rio and we finish up with 5) Electronic Dance Music usually focusing on House Music. That’s it. The essential 5 food groups of music of ‘The Beat Nation’! Join the community and say “No” to commercial radio and “Yes” to Based on the Beat!
This week it’s all about soul music. We play a little old, a little new a little not-so-well-known… but it all has soul! Come tune in and discover some soul gems as Jesse Robinson gives you his take on that American classic genre… Soul Music.
This week we focus on the “do over” – songs reinterpreted. Jesse Robinson looks at classic songs that have been remade and some no-so-popular song that became classics (classics in a “Based on the Beat” sense). You will certainly discover a nugget here for your collection; the original, the remake or both!
This week it’s time for a road trip! Sit back and relax as Jesse Robinson takes you on a musical journey. Music for reflecting on the open road. This week we feature music from Jose James, Tosca, Stubborn Heart, Michael Kiwanuka, Alice Russell, Richie Spice, Jessie Ware and the legendary Baby Huey, to name a few. So, buckle up and come along for the ride.
