touch&feel:radio

Took me a little longer to get this out than I had hoped, but it is finally here: the latest edition of my touch&feel:radio podcast. It’s another hourlong Funky House (aka UK Funky) slammer showing off the many splendors of this emerging sound. Check it out and let me know what you think:

Full playlist and more info available at www.touchandfeel.org:

touch&feel:radio is a podcast founded by MR. VISH and DJ LIL TIGER that features a dirty-style blend of various types of soulful urban music from around the world. Genres include: Funky House/UK Funky, UK Garage, 2-Step, Broken Beat, Dancehall, Reggae, Soul, Grime, Jungle/Drum and Bass, Hip-Hop, House, Soca and whatever else suits our souls.

We began this little project in L.A. back in August of 2005, but life put the brakes on things a year later when Lil Tiger moved to NY to start a new life, and Mr. Vish moved back to Houston to attend to his family.

After a long break, though, it’s time to bring this baby back and get the music flowing once more. Thanks for sticking with us. Much more to come.

Join the touch&feel:radio facebook page to keep track of updates on the show.

This monumental event reunited one of hip-hop’s illest collaborative mixtape efforts of the 1990s – DJ Tony Touch presents The 5 Deadly Venoms Of Brooklyn (1997) featuring DJs PF Cuttin (as The Lizard), Mister Cee (The Toad), Premier (The Scorpion), Evil Dee (The Centipede) & Tony Touch (The Snake). The title is based on a Shaw Brothers classic The 5 Deadly Venoms which refers to 5 characters who exemplify kung fu fighting styles of said creatures. The theme has been utilized in various hip-hop contexts from Wu-Tang albums to Sprite commercials.

The night’s celebration of Tony Toca‘s birthday also paid homage to the late Michael Jackson, classic hip-hop joints and good music, period. Special thanks to Squincy Jones, who was in attendance with me. Check Toca Tuesdays at Sutra on 1st & 1st in the East Village. One of NYC’s only parties poppin’ on a Tuesday night.

PS. Sorry for the lacking title; I didn’t ask him his age. Plus a lady never tells. (Just kiddin’, Tony!) Peace to the piece maker!

Chicken George

The Soundwave electronic music festival in Vancouver Island, B.C, is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary this weekend, and to help commemorate the event, Austin’s Chicken George has put together the “Soundwave 10-Year Anniversary ‘Jazztronica’ Mix.” Chicken refers to his style as “Jazztronica,” which could very loosely be described as an amalgamation of funk, soul, hip-hop, jazz, reggae, electronic, and disco, although really, it should just be classified as Really Really Good Music. His sets aren’t confined to any one sound. He just puts together quality shit. If you listen, you’ll understand:

Home for Carnival 5

I’ve been wanting to post this up since I got the preview of it last week, but the holiday (and the residual effects of the holiday) have kept me dumb busy. So my apologies for holding out on y’all.

LP and Double L, the duo that make up G13 Sound International have been murdering the soca mixes for years now with their Home For Carnival mix CD series. And after stocking up on killer soca tunes for the past year, they’ve finally unleashed Home For Carnival 5, their most polished and most impressive soca mix to date. I’m so geeked about this, you have no idea. Hear it for yourself:

This is a really well-thought-out mix that starts with a nice mid-tempo energy and builds itself up as it goes along. If you want a good feel for the diversity of styles within soca music right now, listen to this mix from beginning to end. And if it doesn’t lively up your day, I think something might actually be wrong with you.

Here’s what LP has to say about it:

As some of you may know, Double L and me recently completed our 5th soca mix CD as G13 Sound International. As a representation from almost every island in the Caribbean, we took our favorite songs from the last year or so, and then set out to make an extremely fun mix … one that combines energy, creativity, and top selection in order to let soca artists, producers, and music from every island live and breathe. …

We’re really happy with the way this mix turned out and more than anything, in an uncertain world, we know this mix can provide a lot of joy and inspiration to those who love great soca music.

Amen.

LP and Double L have such a deep knowledge and appreciation of soca, and they’re like missionaries spreading the energy and the culture of the music. Seriously, these dudes get it. LP has been hitting up damn near every soca-related celebration in the Western Hemisphere, so you know his love is pure and deep. If you don’t believe me, check his twitter feed. My man spreading the gospel of soca 20 tweets at a time!

For real, I got too much respect for these cats. The truth is in the music. Listen to the mix and you’ll know.

Also, If you dig the soca vibes (and really, how can you not?), make sure to check out the mix they did for Mad Decent Radio back in March.

Big up soca music all day and all night.

Moe Choi in the middle. Where he at? In the middle.

For the rainy day (or any day).

Choimatic “20 Minutes Of Mahogany”

This is a mix by the homie Moe Choi aka Choimatic. A blend of good, soulful music from a dude who loves Morrissey as much as he loves M.O.P. I mean look at dude: he’s got gold fronts and has lines shaved in his head and he hangs out with Large Professor, Rob Swift and DJ Lomang (Ghostface’s DJ in China) while wearing a Depeche Mode lambswool knit sweater. Mind blasting.

You should listen on the strength of that alone.

Catch him spinning with me (Empanadamn) next Sunday, June 28, at Littlefield for the mixtape exchange party that I have yet to create a clever name for.

Podcast:

EPISODE 13. DJ LIL TIGER
and EMPANADAMN

DJ LIL TIGER starts things off with a love-themed Soul set with splashes of classic disco and contemporary R&B. EMPANADAMN holds it down in the second half with a mesh of synthy dance, pop, Hip-Hop and electro.
