RL146 - Jazzy Interlude (Jazzy Lounge Mix)

September 13th, 2017

Police Sgt.: I apprehended the accused and advised him of his rights. He replied, Why don't you ram it up your pim-hole, you fusking cloff prunker.
Judge: Why don't you ram it up your pim-hole you fusking, cloth-blanket was it?
Lawyer: Er, I believe it was... er...
Judge: Yes, yes?
Lawyer: Cloff-prunker, m'lud.
Judge: I see. Forgive my ignorance, but what exactly is a cloff-prunker?
Lawyer: Well, m'lud, it's...
Judge: Yes?
Lawyer: It's... um... an illicit practice whereby one person... erm...
Judge: Well?
Lawyer: Whereby one person frangilates another's slimp, m'lud.
Judge: He does what?
Lawyer: He or she gratifies the other person by... smuctating them avially.

RH91 - The Slo’ Deep (Deep House Mix)

September 12th, 2017

The Road Less Travelled

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Robert Frost

RL145 - Vintage Coffee House (Chillout Compilation)

September 8th, 2017

Y'all know me. Know how I earn a livin'. I'll catch this bird for you, but it ain't gonna be easy. Bad fish. Not like going down the pond chasin' bluegills and tommycods. This shark, swallow you whole. Little shakin', little tenderizin', an' down you go. And we gotta do it quick, that'll bring back your tourists, put all your businesses on a payin' basis. But it's not gonna be pleasant. I value my neck a lot more than three thousand bucks, chief. I'll find him for three, but I'll catch him, and kill him, for ten. But you've gotta make up your minds. If you want to stay alive, then ante up. If you want to play it cheap, be on welfare the whole winter. I don't want no volunteers, I don't want no mates, there's just too many captains on this island. Ten thousand dollars for me by myself. For that you get the head, the tail, the whole damn thing. - Jaws

RL144 - Streetwise (Lounge Mix)

August 30th, 2017

A refreshing compilation of energetic, upbeat and, of course, funky tracks for your enjoyment. There is a nice balance between Electronic Lounge and Jazzy Lounge and both help to create a lively a set. You will notice that there are few artists featured here who are also responsible for some of those slow cooked tracks in “Sunset Intermission”. That means funky baselines and uplifting but yet also chilled grooves. The percussion here is just scintillating and the bass drums thump with the urgency of Thor’s hammer. They hit deep and force you to stay locked into the groove. Magical beats, addictive bass lines, moving grooves - mystical experience. Enjoy!

RH89 - Sunset Intermission (Chillhouse Mix)

August 29th, 2017

A collection of slowly cooked funky tracks from some big hitting artists in the Chillout scene. The mood is all about the enjoyment of sunsets (and other chilled events) with suitably upbeat and yet not fast House Music. Whatever device you use for listening, or speakers, I just hope that you are not unfortunate enough to be robbed off the rich and funky baselines in these tracks. It is magnificent! Sit back, chill and enjoy. This is pretty good funkyware.

RL143 - Choice African Selection (African Chillout)

August 28th, 2017

I have friends that keep asking me what my favourite African tracks have been so far. I can never remember their names and always mumble out one excuse or the other. So this weekend I thought it would be better to just bring them together in a compilation or two. This is the first …the second will pop sooner or later. There is some gorgeous ear candy here. Who cares what they are singing about? As long they have a firm grasp on reality and a strong feel for beauty its all good. Those concepts are universal – they are the only passport you will need to a world of music. Cheers and please enjoy.

“If lots of men around you are growing a beard just because of political or ideological reasons, you refuse this, and if you have a beard, shave it off! Leave your herd to find yourself! Find your own style, not the style your ideology or your party is dictating on you! Remember, you build a sound character mostly through refusing, through saying no, through staying different!” - Mehmet Murat ildan
