After a three-year hiatus, DJ LIL TIGER has brought the radio podcast he started with MR. VISH back to life. And to celebrate the resurrection, he’s put together an hourlong Funky House (aka UK Funky) mix:

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 made me laugh. Also, I’m old.

Things have been busy as hell lately, so the mid-March edition of 5ives ALMOST got pocketed. Almost. It’s a solo mission this time around, as everybody else is off conquering the world, or hatching a youngin, or hitting up SXSW. We’ll come back strong in April with more goodies. For now, hold these five tunes, and keep checking back with us when you get a chance.

dj lil tiger | all by my lonely

The Supremes – Stoned Love (Joey Honey Delegation Mix)
Joey Honey, who sometimes (rarely?) contributes to this site, put this little gem together, and I love it. A lot. As he says (tongue firmly in cheek): “Who would EVER have guessed the Supremes x disco would be a good fit?”

Madeline Bell – That’s What Friends Are For (Danny Krivit Re-Edit)
This is a wonderful rework of a tune that makes me feel great every time I hear it. Danny Krivit is, of course, a living legend and an inspiration. I saw him spin at Deep back in L.A. a number of years ago and he was amazing. Actually, now that I’m thinking about it, I’m mad at myself for not checking him out here in the city. I need to get on that. Anyway, if you’ve yet to be touched by the brilliance of one of Danny Krivit’s infamous re-edits, you have no idea what you’ve been missing. Also, you’re welcome.

AphroDisiax – Unfinished Business (links to Juno where you can listen to and buy the record.)
This is a killer House tune (that also fits neatly into the (UK) Funky umbrella) from AphroDisiax, a West London crew that melds house, tech and broken beat for a deeply soulful sound. This shit is fire.

Update: The label, Jus’House, just released this tune on vinyl with an expected digital release soon to follow. The link above will take you to a site where you can purchase the record. The label contacted me asking to take down the free download link, and out of respect to the label and to the artists, I have agreed. It’s not my intention to cut into anyone’s way of life with these welfare offerings. I just want people to hear good tunes. So, please do follow the link above and support the artists. You can hear the brilliance of this tune there (just click on the headphones next to the song name on the Juno site). I’ll update this post later with a link where the mp3 can be purchased once it’s officially released.

Ghostman – 25th Hour
Another sick sick sick Funky beat. Peep Ghostman’s myspace page for more soulful goodness.

Babatundi Olatunji – Long Distance Lover
On of my favorites from Olatunji, the late great Nigerian master of percussion. Off the Love Drum Talk album.

** INSTRUCTIONS FOR DOWNLOADING **
We host all our Welfare downloads off-site, so what you need to do to download them is to click on the song name in the post, and then look for a download link on the page that that takes you to.

We mostly use divShare, so for divShare follow these steps to download the songs:

- Click on the name of the song. That will take you to a divShare page.

- On the divShare page, on the right-hand side, there should be a link that says “Download Original”. Click that link.

If you just wait a little while, the file will automatically download for you. Or, you can click on “Skip This Ad” at the top right of that page, and the file will start to download right away.

That should do it.

If the file is hosted on some other site besides divShare (like ZShare or MediaFire or something) then just look for a link on that site’s page that says download.

G13 Soca Mix on Mad Decent Radio

In: Downloads, Mixes, Music

My man LP of the mighty G13 SOUND INTERNATIONAL has been flooding my inbox since the start of the year with ill soca tunes that he picked up before, during and after hitting up this year’s T&T Carnival (I am so jealous). LP and Double L have been championing the soca scene for years with their Home for Carnival mix CD series (I have all four so far and they’re all slammin’), and they recently put together a quick mix of the latest soca jams for Mad Decent Radio.

Double L describes the mix as:

… an in-your-face, 30-minute high-octane Soca mix which only us at G13 Intn’l can execute & deliver as such.

These dudes are really serious about their soca, and they know their shit top to bottom. Peep the mix below and hear for yourself:

DJ Neil Armstrong - Sweeet Part 2

DJ Neil Armstrong‘s Sweeet mix CD is a gotdamn classic.

We here at BuhbOmp have been waiting a long time for the follow-up, and after three years, finally, Sweeet Part 2 is on the horizon. (We give him some slack for the long delay, since he’s been busy touring the world as Jay-Zs DJ, Barack-ing the house for our newest President, and generally just conquering the world).

The Sweeet series is a portal into Neil’s softer, lovier side. In his words:

It’s on the lovey dovey tip like the 1st one, with that style that you’ve gotten used to me bringing. Official Release date TBA soon…

You can catch a sampler of the new mix below:

Nas remakes “If I ruled the World”

In: Downloads, Music

Nas – If I Ruled the World (2009) feat. Marsha Ambrosius

This rehash couldn’t hold the jockstrap of that candle that couldn’t be held up next to the original cut. This track also demonstrates just how far Nas has veered from his legendary Illmatic beat selection ethos.

Via Smirnoff Signature Mix series.

March is upon us and that means a lot of things – It’s Spring (again), March Madness, bewaring the Ides of March (St. Ides or not), South By South West, Winter Music Conference, St. Patricks Day, Dentist’s Day, Doctor’s Day, Toast Day, and Tater Day. But more importantly, we’re serving up our first installment of this month’s WELFARE. Hopefully you’ll find a little something in our offering to accompany your every day this March and beyond.

empanadamn | Snow way

The-Dream “Walkin’ On The Moon” (Feat. Kanye West)
I was a non-believer when I first heard The-Dream. Then I saw him perform at Hot 97′s Summer Jam ’08. Having a crew of hot, back-up dancers kinda helped seal the deal. At any rate, here’s a cut off of the soon to be released, sophomore album Love Vs. Money.

The Foreign Exchange “Daykeeper” (Feat. Muhsinah)
I used to work in a law firm years back, and was on a project with a group of folks, one of which was a law student (again, cue Lost Boys’ “Renee”) whom I wrote off as an entitled b*tch because she was blonde, highly edumecated and, to top it off, attractive. The group conversation veered onto the topic of music, which I really don’t enjoy talking about with the layman. A co-worker mentioned to blondie that I was a DJ, to which responded with much intrigue, asking about the type of music I was into, and so on. She nodded with agreement, and started rattling off her favorites which included bunch of R&B, soul, Okay Player affiliates, and the like. Homegirl was a sheep in wolf’s clothing. At any rate, she recently hit me up and asked me if I heard The Foreign Exchange’s album Leave It All Behind, and shared a few of her choice cuts. Coincidentally, they are performing this Sunday at Highline Ballroom in NY, so check them out.

The Rachels “Lloyd’s Register”
I first heard The Rachels blaring inside the Sound Exchange (R.I.P.) in Austin, Texas on an afternoon when I probably should have been in class. I was captivated by the soul of the album, though delivered in modern classical form. I can’t remember who was working at the time, but he turned me onto the group. This song is probably my favorite on the album, as it plays through a cycle of emotions leaving me with a lump in my throat.

Archie Whitewater “Cross Country”
I don’t know how I acquired this one, but I’m glad I did. And somehow it always finds its way to my playlist set to shuffle. After talking to my mom this past Sunday telling me about the 80 degree weather for the week, it makes me want to be cross country. Peep the xylophone action.

Morcheeba “Fear & Love”
I found out about Morcheeba from a postcard that got mailed to my parents’ home over summer break from college. On the postcard there was a small, blurry picture of a girl that looked like Björk. Hoping it was a side project of sorts, I HAD to investigate. I called a toll-free number on the postcard and heard a snippet of Trigger Hippie, the lead track for their debut album Who Can You Trust? and was sold. So, unrelated to the Icelandic pop star, two brothers with a jazzy-pop songstress carried the torch of the UK downtempo movement and was met with a positive response over yonder. I couldn’t get with their 3rd album and beyond as they went for a polished pop style, and just felt too Gap for me.

cashless | Spring Yang in this thang…

Geeneus – Peace of Heaven feat. Sacha
The first time I heard of Dubstep and UK Funky producer Geeneus was on the remix on DJ Wonder’s “What (have you done for me lately)”. He had an anthem with his remix to Benga & Coki’s “Night”. He hits my radar again (big shout to Dayta), with “Peace of Heaven” off his 2008 release, Volumes: One.

Marsha Ambrosius – Cloud 9
When Floetry broke up, that didn’t stop Marsha Ambrosius from continuing to make good music (no G.O.O.D. Music). She’s back at it with her latest mixtape, Truly Yours. Although I can’t say that I enjoyed the mixtape in its entirety, I will say that “Cloud 9″ is still that crack. Enjoy.

Drake – Successful feat. Trey Songz
Hi, internet. Can we stop talking about Drake yet? Obviously not. This gets major bumpage in the ride, even though I do turn it down really low when riding through the hood.

Erykah Badu – Real Thang (Astronote Remix)
So it’s a new remix to a song that is in no way new. Who cares? Because when Astronote put his foot in it, it regained that new track smell.

Stevie Wonder – My Cherie Amor (Beatnik & K. Salaam remix)
For some reason when I first snagged this track, I coulda swore that said “Salaam Remi remix). My mind is playing tricks on me.

dj lil tiger | is it spring yet?

Jay Sean – Tonight (Crazy Cousinz Remix)
Another fire remix from the Crazy Cousinz crew. (UK) Funky that I’m all about these days.

Shea Soul – Playing Tricks (Faeda Remix)
Another (UK) Funky tune for you, this one a sick soulful production from Faeda. Heavy broken house feel to this one. Love the vocals, too.

La Roux – In For The Kill (Skream’s Let’s Get Ravey Remix)
Props to Wesley and Elz for this one. They’ve been telling me about this tune for a while, and I finally got around to checking it out. The vocals really haunt me. Dubstep type shit with a throwback feel.

Erik Rico – Wonderful
Soulful uptempo stuff from the multi-talented singer, musician, producer Erik Rico, who has a very forward approach to soul music.

Gil Scott-Heron – Lady Day and John Coltrane
If you’re in a funk, Gil Scott-Heron got the remedy for you. Classic tune from his brilliant Pieces of Man LP.

Eddie Senay – Cameo
