sometimes these great albums just arrive in the postbox without any hype before and around it. so one can listen without any superhyped statements in the head - now the album "Speak" by Michael Olatuja is one of those brilliant works, havin played alongside Stevie, Chaka et al. on bass he now took his time to record with fantastic artists like Eska, Lynden David Hall (R.I.P.) Roachford, Terri Walker, TY and more an album full of soul and jazz and all that. don't call it "nu" anything, its music felt and played without any trend in mind i guess. thats why it is so unique. and so is labelmate Gretchen Parlatos version of Herbies "Butterfly" on her second full length. simply wonderful. both released or goin to be releases through the class Obliq Sounds label. check the full treat, get a CD!
also featured in this show the man out of the UK who is the talk of town now and will definately be in years to come, when speaking about his Ensemble. here with his original contender for tune of the year and a remix action for an outstanding project by Bei Bei and Shawn Lee. DSL laidback for Boozoo Bajou, BIG remix! Isaac Hayes, the don of coverversions and his killer sexy 14 minutes take on Eugene McDaniels "Feel Like Makin Love" and a bit of edit beat action by Miles Bonny who just delivered a cool performance at the LAZY. season closing last saturday...thats it for this weeks tunes out of the MR box . . . off to CUBA!

Tom Wieland is definately what you call a digger, deep diggin, be it jazz, reggae, soul, boogie or now : AfroCubanFunk - Cuba is the word and his mix rocks as much as his compilation "Revolucion" for Freestyle records...maybe even a bit more. all Areito records, all strong and put together for this late summer dance madness. a big MUCHAS GRACIAS senor Wielando!
check all his production work here: www.myspace.com/7samuraimusic - always something new, currently a boogie edit for pazazz....phew!
