the excellent folks over @ YouKnowIGotSoul.Com recently got a chance to catch up with the one and only Mr. Dalvin DeGrate. he drops his thoughts on all things Jodeci and also gives up some tidbits from Da Bassment days. my favourite moment by far has to be his short but awesome story regarding how his standout track with Static, “True O.G.”, ended up getting selected for the Dangerous Minds Soundtrack (was a geek moment for me personally as that is one of the nastiest songs of all-time).

or listen below:
+ the afore-mentioned hot joint by Dal & Static, thank fuck someone had the ears and the wherewithall to put it out there.
new ish from Mr. Dwele G. written & produced by Mike City. tis the 1st single off the upcoming album. real chill, real peace, in short: another quality release from Dwe. u can buy the track from iTunes here, or stream via YouTube below (i’m not providing an mp3 for this outta respect for the man).
presenting, one of the finest mixes i have ever crafted in all my years of mixmastering. it’s 96mins of some obscure synthpop and heavy synthbeats (ranging from German, Russian, Italo-Disco), some new wave, mixed in with some truly oldschool hip hop and electrofunk 80s sheit one could pop and/or lock to. i’ve also included some of the newer neo-80s synthwave joints that seems to be so prevalent on the Internets these days (thank blog). i’m withholding the tracklist for now, but anyone who wants it can hit me up @ firstname.lastname@example.org & i’ll happy to provide it for u 🙂 right now it’s just the one-track download straight via Soundcloud. plz enjoy, boogie down and share.
