I have been raving about this band for the past 4 months and am glad to see they have a brand new video! You can grab it as a free download! Some great tunage dropping out of Copenhagen! Let me know what you think! And shout out to Alex Rita for passing this my way and also doing an amazing job on the vocals!


Best show ever!  I think I was implanted on Earth on April 12th 1978 just for this show!  From the start it felt right. Im very tactical in musical placement and sometimes one song can throw off the vibe for me. But this is just full of new heat from Saux, Okapii, Dj A1, Jaw Jam, Cashmere Cat, James Blake, Nanna B, Twinsmatic plus classics from Donald Byrd, Stevie and on and on. I have been on this real soul kick as of late and so I broke out the Weeknd, Jhene Aiko and Jeremih records. Something about that dark soul at 2 am that just feels right.  And make sure to listen to the closer of the program that comes to us via France. The project is entitled Yatha Bhuta Jazz Combo from All City!  Perfect way to end the vibes.

Just came across the tune while prepping for tonight’s show at midnight and love the sound! At first listen I thought it might be a cut featuring Quadron’s Coco but then realized this is something different and new!  I began researching and found out that the duo is out of Copenhagen.  Mads Oustrup and Alex Rita come together as OKAPII and create some great gems!  This particular track is a free download via Bandcamp! Grab it!  Also peep the video below!  Let me know what you think!
