THE soul voice passed away: Mr. Jon Lucien died on August 18th far too early at the age of 65 due to respiratory failure and other complications. He blessed us with his music of which he said in his own words: "I would say my sound is a romantic sound ... it's water ... it's ocean ... it's tranquility..." If you only take his song "Lady Love" which is definately my favourite love song of all time you can hear and feel all that in there. As he wasn't easy to categorize he never had the big success he deserved , somewhere between Jazz and Soul he had his very own sound and a voice that soothes your soul. May he rest in peace - a soulsearching tribute mix at the end of this weeks show.
First part of the show with Jamie Woon, who just performed a wonderful live gig at LAZY. a week ago, starting with the tune "Spirits" and ending with a nice coverversion of Bjork's "All Is Full Of Love" which had all the crowd singin the chorus in a very quiet , magical way. New music by Ray Harris' Fusion Experience as yet only released in Japan, another StringsOfLife piano moment courtesy of Francesco Tristano, Mr. White's overlooked A-Side and loads of tropical heat within the fantastic mix by Hugo Mendez, who is running hot warehouse parties in London with sounds and music rare as hell out of South America & Africa. Need to check his sets out live next time i 'm over there. Big thanks, Hugo!

summer breeze mix series comin to an end next week with a mix by DJ Capstone out of the Tru Thoughts camp.

enjoy the music,


As far as I know, I am not a robot.
