I am most definitely grooving on some soul sounds this Saturday. And that is exactly what I have chosen to share with you on this lovely weekend evening and this brand spanking new… Soul Saturday! I mean, that’s really just a tentative name but it has somewhat of a ring to it. I know many of you have heard of Diplo and his label Mad Decent. They have laid down a very impressive track record within the last 2-3 years (especially with their album Lazer Proof) This first Jammie pick comes again from the prolific Diplo and his own Mad Decent in the form of a rework of Merlena Shaw’s California Soul. Enjoy.
Pick 1: Marlena Shaw – California Soul (Diplo/Mad Decent Remix)
Pick 2: Nightmares On Wax – You Wish
This next piece is by the classic Nightmares On Wax. This one not only features instrumentation that is akin to soul, but the style in which it was sampled seems give off a little soul. That’s just my opinion though. Regardless, its a wonderfully relaxing piece to add to your collection. Until tomorrow fellow Jammie’s. Have a good night and stay safe!
[Jamie Fact: Diplo’s primary studio is Tuff Gong records located in Kingston, which was Bob Marley’s home studio. This is one of the main reasons you can most certainly hear a Reggae/Rasta element in his music.]
