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.

I speak the truth, I tell no lie

In: Cashless, Crazy Talk, Elz, Empanadamn, Lil Tiger, Misc.

Been masturbating, since the 4th of July. Don’t believe me? I can prove it!

And because of it, I must tell all those who peruse this site the truth about the people who write this drivel! They are not who you think they are! Think they just spin the records that you love, huh? Well I’m here to tell you, IT’S ALL LIES!

EMPANADAMN: This person has never actually eaten an empanada! His name springs from a severe case of dislexia and a fixation on the inevitable damnation of all pandas. He is a 6’7″ native of Oslo, and eats soul food 8 times a week, particularly neck bones and whiskey.

CASHLESS: Tries to portray himself as a poor man? Claims his nationality to be Jamaican? Wrong, he is actually the independently wealthy son of an Irish businessman, heir to a fortune built on urinal cakes. His facial hair has been known break broad swords and he has rejected the microwave. He’s also the former world record holder for longest recorded camel clutch on a teenager. (Never call him by his real name, Paddy Higgins O’Houlihan Flanigan Fitzpatrick Hanrihan IIX).

LIL TIGER: Born and raised in Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin, he is a hater of all things circular, and his eyebrows are implants. He spent his youth throwing rocks at onlookers as he practiced his “dontchaknow” dj style in nothing but a beanie and socks during the long winter months. He prides himself on being able to pee all 50 states in alphabetical order in the snow, off one 12 oz. beverage.

ELZ: The most diabolical tiddly winks player ever produced by the great state of West Virginia. Other than that, he’s your normal half-Dutch, half-Malaysian, half-Greek, half-Madagascarian Appalachian warlord with a beard thicker than mature oak tree trunk.

So you see my friends, these are not the people who you think they are! I trust that now that I have pulled away the veil, you can fully appreciate them for who they are.

Until the next time,
Join the Resistance!!!

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.

—————

jd | some springy ish — because I’m ready for it

Black Star – Respiration (Dr. Luke Remix)

Eddie Senay – Cameo

Marvin Gaye – Music Feel the Soul

Three Times Dope – Mellow But Smooth

George Benson – Footin’ It

Drake – November 18th
The buzz surrounding Degrassi actor turned Rapper/Singer (No Joaquin), Drake, is deafening but seemingly warranted. Over the weekend, Drake dropped his latest mixtape, So Far Gone, and the response on the blogger/Twitter spheres was overwhelming. The track November 18th is somewhat of a homage to the late great, Dj Screw and the seminal track June 27th. While I think November 18th lacks some of the rough edges that make the O.G. so real, the polish of November 18th will finally bring some of that same realness to the clurb and/or the local becky experience.

Dj Deckstream feat Mos Def – Life is Good
Wanna hear something crazy? I like a new Mos Def song. Japanese dj, Deckstream of M-Flo fame, comes through with some jazzy heatrock production steez.

Outkast – SpottieOttieDopalicious (I.M. Elliot & Quix22 Club remix)
One of my favorite songs of all time, this time with a wobbly bmore/club feel to it. I’ve never heard of either I.M. Elliot or Quix22, color me disconnected, but when you make Spottie Ottie hipster friendly without offending me, I’m all about it.

BLK JKS – Lakeside
Nothing new here, just reminded myself and you people that BLK JKS will be playing at SXSW on March 19th. More info here.

Michael Jackson – PYT (U-Tern edit)
Canada’s king of the boogie edit, U-tern, hits hard again with a re-edited demo version of the MJ Classic. Speaking of the devil, make sure that you drop by Julien’s Auctions at the Beverly Hills Hilton this April to cop some nice joints from MJ’s personal collection of crazy shit. Personally, I’m feeling that animatronic head. :Pause:

empanadamn | Rapchure | Serato-ready

Red Cafe “Hottest In Da Hood”
Brookly’s Red Cafe has been one lucky rapper who gets a hold of hoTT BeatZ. This one reminds me of Obie Trice’s track “The Set Up”. I’m a sucker for that percolating sound.

Papoose “Amnesia”
Remember when Papoose was supposed to be that guy who brought hip-hop back to New York? Yeah, me neither. What about that 1.5 million dollar record contract through DJ Kay Slay? At any rate, Sade is the best.

Big Boi “Ringtone”
My ol’ buddy Antwan André Patton got a new album coming out called “Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty”. This is one of the cuts on it on the uptempo, auto-tune tip. Also on the horizon for 2009 is an album from the other André, as well as a duet album in the form of a group called OutKast.

Busta Rhymes “Conglomerate” (Feat. Young Jeezy & Jadakiss)
This song really annoyed me in the beginning, but I’m a sucker for girls with accents (and I don’t mean Hyundai).

Public Enemy “Lost At Birth”
I’m watching Pineapple Express and there’s some great music throughout the movie. The last scene is hilarious, and I don’t even smoke weed! This track is used when Dale & Red are mounting up like regulators and mobbing down the street in a yellow Daewoo.

dj lil tiger | Everything is gonna be alright …

Marvin Gaye vs Marc Mac – Sexual Healing
4hero‘s Marc Mac gives “Sexual Healing” the treatment.

Les McCann – Beaux J. Poo Boo
From one of my favorite Les McCann albums, 1971′s Invitation to Openness. Real Hedz Know the DealTM.

Big Daddy Kane – On The Bugged Tip
CLASSIC. BDK kills. Nuff said.

Ms. Dynamite – Watch Over Them
Consciousness from the one Ms. Dynamite. A little a capella gem off her highly-acclaimed A Little Deeper debut album from way back in 2002.

Zuco 103 – Love Is Queen Omega (featuring Lee “Scratch” Perry)
An uplifting little uptempo number from Holland’s Zuco 103, featuring the vocal blessings of dub legen Lee “Scratch” Perry.

dj lil tiger | he was a king, she was a queen under the moonlight …

Taylor McFerrin – Broken Vibes feat. Vincent Parker
This has been out a while, but I don’t get tired of it. Besides, more people need to be up on Taylor McFerrin‘s diverse talents. He’s ill on the beatbox, vocals and beats. Beautiful, soulful tune. Check for the changeup.

Bukola – Hypnotised (Domu Remix)
Hypnotic beats with a touch of dancehall.

DKD – You Know It (feat. Bembe Segue)
A favorite midtempo broken number from a few years ago. DKD is the super collabo of Dego (4Hero), Kaidi Tatham and Daz-I-Kue. This is off their 2004 classic, Future Rage.

Incognito – Nights Over Egypy (MAW remix)
Masters at Work’s monster rework of seminal UK band Incognito doing a cover of the Jones Girls’ classic.

Telefon Tel Aviv – Nothing Is Worth Losing That
In memory of Charles Cooper. I remember when Melodic and I met these dudes after a Telefon Tel Aviv show in Austin a while back. Really nice dudes. Amazing music, too.

—————

empanadamn | I love her / I love her not | Serato-ready

Jazzanova “Look What You’re Doin’ To Me” (Feat. Phonté)
Put this one on a mixtape for the girl in your life and tell her to smoke it.

INOJ / Daft Punk “Make Love You Down” (Siik Blend)
I love both these tracks, and they work remarkably well together. 

J Dilla “Fall In Love” (Flying  Lotus Remix)
A reinterpretation of a Soulquarian classique.

Ryan Leslie “How It Was Supposed To Be” (Remix Feat. Jadakiss)
So some might assume that this track is alluding to the relationship that Leslie had with Cassie, before Diddy Burger Kinged her out, but who really knows. I try not to keep up with the hip-hop Days of Our Lives. Next to the fact of this featuring a couple of dudes who I feel are really doing it in the game right now are the throwback synths.

Hawthorn Mayer & The Country “Just Ain’t Gonna Work Out” 
DJ Day put me on this last week. Apparently it was the song of the day at NPR (shouts to O-Dub).

buhbompradio_12

For our 12th episode, EMPANADAMN and DJ LIL TIGER team up for another quick mix (just under 27 minutes) to hold things over until the world gets a little less busy. Just a sampling of things to come, really. EMPANADAMN spreads it around with a little of everything but the kitchen sink, and LIL TIGER closes out the mix with a quick hit of raw dancehall.

dj lil tiger | cool and quiet, but quick to start up a riot …

Abstract Truth – Get Another Plan (Extended Mix)
Monique Bingham‘s voice is just too beautiful. Abstract Truth is known for their house classic “We Had a Thing”, but the drums on this tune rule my world. I think this dropped in 1996, well before this type of shit was on my radar. Shouts to Aser for putting me on to this many moons ago. To add some perspective to your time warp, feast your eyes on this.

Erup – Mek Noise
Been in a dancehall mood lately, and this tune off the Dashboard Riddim has been in my heavy rotation of late. Another hot production from Truck Back and Erup, the folks that brought you the massive “Click Mi Finga.”

Demarco – Gal A You (raw)
**Audio NSFW** Another fire tune from Demarco, who’s “Fallen Soldiers” tune mashed everything last year. This one is off the Outada Riddim, which came out some time back in October, I think. No matter, this shit stays hot. And I can’t lie, I’m a total sucker for these throwback riddims anyway.

Witchdoctor feat. OutKast – Dez Only 1
Gotta take it back a bit with this one. Some of y’all might remember Witchdoctor’s “Holiday”. I know in Houston and in Austin, we played the fuck out of this tune for a long, LONG time. What folks might not know is that Witchdoctor put out a full-length solo album called A S.W.A.T. Healin’ Ritual that had some real gems on it. Not everything from that record has held up over time, but this tune still does it for me. It doesn’t hurt that 3 Stacks and Sir Lucious Left Foot put it down real strong. I can’t believe it’s been over 10 years since this song came out.

Mandrill – Mango Meat
Since I’m already looking back, here’s another one from the vaults. I’ve mentioned this one before. One of my favorite Hip-Hop songs of all time (from probably my favorite Hip-Hop album of all time) is the Jungle Brothers’ “Straight Out the Jungle,” which was born from the greatness of this Mandrill masterpiece.

Bonus video: Jungle Brothers – Straight Out the Jungle

—————

empanadamn | R&B Babies | Serato ready

Aaliyah “Rock The Boat (Stimulated Remix)
I always thought that I would get to meet Aaliyah. Baby Girl Rest In Peace.

Brandy “Drum Song”
This is probably the only track from her latest album that works in a DJ set. It’s got somewhat of a smooth, broken feel to it. I used to not like Brandy because she looked like a goldfish with braids, but you can’t deny that she has some bangers. Still, I can look past Moesha and all that as she’s developed into a nice looking woman. But if it came down to it and I had to pick between her and Monica in a battle of “The Boy Is Mine”, Monica wins.

Slim “Good Lovin’” (Feat. Ryan Leslie & Fabolous)
WOW! This track’s got the perfect amount of knock, funk, bounce and sessiness to it, rapping aside. Slim can be hit or miss, but this one’s a killa. Ryan Leslie is becoming a personal favorite for current productions the more I hear him. Hello BPMs in the 90s.

Amel Larrieux “Giving Something Up”
Amel has that winning combination of looks and sangin skills. However, seeing her live is a different thing. Yes, it’s live and in person, BUT she goes off on scattin’ (no 2 girls, one cup-o) reminiscent of Kim Wayans as the lounge singer doing “When The Saints Go Marching In” in “I’m Gonna Git You Sucka.” With that, I love this track.

Notorious B.I.G. “Just Playin’” (Dreams)
Just because. (PS. I still have a crush on Dawn from En Vogue.)

New Year. New 5ives. What better way to start off 2009 than with free shit. …

(click the song names to download the tunes)

dj lil tiger | bon anja nobo …

Tawiah – Everystep
The first time I heard Tawiah sing was with Mark de Clive-Lowe at one of his Free Soul Sessions at Nublu here in NY. She absolutely murdered it. She’s got a commanding stage presence and a lot of vocal range. “Everystep” is off her In Jodi’s Bedroom EP, which is brilliant.

Anthony Hamilton – She’s Gone
More people should be talking about this dude. I love his latest album The Point of It All from start to finish. Here’s the bonus cut.

Serani – We Grow
One of the hottest tunes on one of the hottest riddims (Beauty) of the 2008.

Shurwayne Winchester and Y.O.U. – Wanna Make Love
Big tune! Shurwayne is a champion, on road and on the dancefloor. Backed by his new band Y.O.U., this mid-tempo tune should satisfy the sexy set worldwide. Shouts to the dude El Professor of G13 Sound for passing this my way.

Johnny Ray – No Cambio a Mi Puerto Rico
I know this is off of a Christmas record, which makes this kinda late, but the greatness of this salsa tune can’t be restrained by a season or holiday. For all the Boriquas out there, Johnny Ray got a little something for you.

NOTE: We’ve also added a new section to the site, the Welfare archive, for easy access and quick reference to all our Welfare handouts. The link is also in our menu at the top of the site. …
