RL169 - Amalgamation (Hip-Hop Meets Lounge Mix)

April 6th, 2018

The true artist, I hold, tries to show in his work some deeper truth, some more real fact than is seen by the casual observer. He sees in the facts of life around him a scheme, a harmony, a purpose, that is more real because it is more universal than the ordinary perception of the same facts in the mind of the ordinary person. That is, he may be trying to give expression to something which he has internally perceived as a feeling, an idea, or an impression, and which, to him, may have been formless...

RL168 - Lounge Saloon (Lounge Mix)

March 27th, 2018

If you celebrate your differentness, the world will, too. It believes exactly what you tell it—through the words you use to describe yourself, the actions you take to care for yourself, and the choices you make to express yourself. Tell the world you are one-of-a-kind creation who came here to experience wonder and spread joy. Expect to be accommodated. - Victoria Moran, Tending Your Soul For Lifelong Beauty

RRv8 - Chilled Reggae Inside (Reggae Compilation)

March 11th, 2018

I really like the reggae concepts like the culture vibe. They speak on everything that's going on, they don't have limits.

RHH23 - When HipHop Was Hit Hot (Vintage HipHop Compilation)

March 8th, 2018

The phrase “Hip-Hop is dead” often elicits strong emotion: people either vehemently agree or disagree with the opinion. As a child of the 90’s, for a long time I refused to accept the reality that the music I grew up listening to and loving could somehow be “dying”. Sadly,  when I recently perused through Billboard’s chart-topping Hip-Hop/R&B tracks and turned the FM dial to the local Hip-Hop/R&B station, it became obvious that, that may actually be the case. The music styles I long cherished and loved may be on their last breath.
