BSOTS 135 - Selection Obsession (pt.1)
Now Playing: random goodness on youtube
Topic: my podcasts

Hello, everyone. There's lots of great music out there and Camp Lo-Fi's back on the case, chasing after grooves wherever they may be found. This episode is basically a catch-up session on the first three months of 2013, including some choice cuts from previous years in the mix as well.

This year is already off to a ridiculously good start with releases from Ty, Bonobo, and Mark de Clive Lowe. The new songs from Eagle Nebula and Georgia Anne Muldrow are practically interwoven into my DNA at this point, getting heavy rotation in my travels. The memory and living legacy of The Ohio Players co-founder Leroy "Sugarfoot" Bonner is shown some love through hip-hop as their classic "Funky Worm" gets re-worked by Karriem Riggins as well as Def Dee & Zar. In addition, there are a number of head-nodding instrumentals, from the neck-snapping bounce of Feb9 to the heavy funk vibe of house producer Joss Moog. Then there's DJ Sun of Houston, TX, whose "Monday Drive" originally came out in 2007, but has been included on his brand new album Hundred. Lovers of downtempo and hip-hop instrumentals will definitely want to seek this one out.

With April 4, 2013 being the 45th anniversary of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination, I thought I'd play a cut from MUTE that incorporates a piece from Nina Simone that she wrote in honor of the slain civil rights leader. Beyond that, there' s some serious dancefloor business courtesy of Sieren and Zanshin and I can't forget about the lyrical genius of Big Daddy Kane rhyming over Marco Polo's production, or MaG spitting bars to an orchestra. The acapella beauty of The Silver Lake Chorus is simply beyond words. And did I mention that Tricky has a new album waiting in the wings?

Yep, it's that kind of show. If this one doesn't provide evidence that there's great music out there, nothing will. Hope you enjoy the ride.
