It’s officially fall, and we’re falling behind schedule as usual. But, we’ve got some great selections from Empanadamn and DJ Lil Tiger to atone for the delays. Got some big projects in the works from now through the end of the year, so stay tuned. For now, Happy Belated Welfare.

(Click the song names to take you to the off-site sharing pages where you can download the tunes. For detailed instructions on how to navigate the sharing sites where we host our files, we’ve got instructions at the end of this post)

empanadamn | Awwwdamn, it’s autumn / Fawk, it’s fall.

Coldcut “Autumn Leaves” (Feat. Janis Alexander)
A joint to reverse jump-start the season to a slowing slumber. This track is by one of London’s most relevant & long-standing producer / DJ duo known as Coldcut.

Goldie “State Of Mind”
The only non-jungle, smoothed out joint on Goldie’s classic release Timeless.

Change “Searching” (Feat. Luther Vandross)
Breakthrough song for Luther’s R&B solo career that for which he’s recognized today.

Raekwon “Broken Safety” (Feat. Jadakiss & Styles P)
My favorite cut off of OB4CLP2. Gruuufffff!!!

X-Ecutioners “Raida’s Theme”
Roc Raida, Rest In Peace. If you’re in NYC, please come through and celebrate the legacy of Grand Master Roc Raida on Thursday, October 22nd at B.B. King’s presented by Tableturns.

dj lil tiger | fall back, summer

Brigadier Jerry – Jamaica Jamaica
After seeing Briggy himself perform this with the legendary King Stur Gav at this event this past weekend, I haven’t been able to stop listening to this tune. I hope you have the same problem. You’re welcome (and also, your welcmoe). Foundation stays winning. Bonus: Here’s a clip of The General doing his thing back in 1986.

Umi Marcano – In Front of Me
Nice mid-tempo soca number from Trinidad’s Umi Marcano.

Mr. V vs. Elvis Crespo – Suave Drink Down (J-Boogie RMX)
J-Boogie mashes Mr. V’s major “Put Your Drink Down” with the Elvis Crespo merengue classic. This is a floor smasher, for real. From the latest batch of Leftism edits unleashed by J-Boogie and Sake One

Dip-N-Steam – Do The Hustle (Vx)
Dope Hip-Hop from Atlanta’s Dip-N-Steam, with Daz-I-Kue working his percussive magic on the boards.

Clyde & Capitol A – Serve It Up ( Galaxy Group Remix )
A bruk classic: In Capitol A‘s words:

a nice AFRO BRUK version ( for those that know about the ORIGINAL I did with CLYDE on MANTIS RECORDS , IT WAS A BIG TUNE ) ……….. this rerub still gets the dance rockin’ so cop it if you missed out on it DJ’S ………

** 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, look for the black circle with an arrow pointing down. Below that arrow is a link that says “Download original”. Click that link and after a few seconds, the download should start automatically.

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. When you click on the download link, it will probably do something similar to divShare and make you wait a handful of seconds before it starts the download (or offers a specific link to the download).

Hit us up in the comments if you need further instruction. We’re here to help. Thanks.
