The Return Of Steve Arrington

20 Sep

Steve Arrington, right? Y’all remember him, of course. Once the voice of Slave. Went on to a mighty fine solo career (Steve Arrington’s Hall of Fame) and released one of the classic funk albums of all time Dancin’ In The Key of Life. Stones Throw announced today that Arrington is working on an album produced by Dam-Funk due out next year. This shit sounds damn funky nice to me. Welcome back Steve; dig this: “I Be Trippin.”

New Aloe Blacc

20 Sep

Aloe Blacc caught our attention with this song and since then we’ve been waiting anxiously for his record Good Things to drop. The soul record was produced by Truth+Soul will be released worldwide next week, September 28 on Stonesthrow. If you’re a digger of folks like Bill Withers, and are jamming on the new John Legend/Roots collaboration then this record will put some slide in your ride. Dig it.

Sunday Soul from The Presidents

25 Jul

Here’s a classic from the DC based soul group, The Presidents. The song was produced by Van (The Hustle) McCoy and almost hit top 10 on the charts in 1970. Love the chorus right up front, and the Delfonics-styled falsettos.
