True to Roots (right click and “save as” to download)
 

Sampling and copywright law is her specialty other than mixing Roots music as a resident for Suryadub, at San Francisco’s Club Six. She was voted “Best Dance DJ of 2008″ by the readers of the SF Bay Guardian, and for sure does she have brains to match the talent. Ripley is a UC Berkeley Law student, who studied in Jamaica, and has a passion for bringing copyright truth to light. Honey Knuckles and Ripley have a timeless conversation about cultural appropriation and dissect the hypocrisy of how American music labels bitch about Jamaican artists remixing their artists when for years American and European labels have been sampling “world” beats while not caring about royalties or giving back to the communities from where they culturally appropriated.

Episode 73 - Searching For... (ft. Trouble and Bass)

Searching for… (right click and “save as” to download)
 

Brooklyn based producers/DJs Patrick Rood aka The Captin and Luca Venezia aka Drop the Lime bring bass to our faces this week. The two hail from Trouble and Bass Records spinning what sounds like voices from other dimensions trapped in a sub woofer. These fellas are truly a vivacious pair—tag-teaming such a raucous set that keeping up with their beats would be difficult for those who think time and space are linear. I had the pleasure of raging with these gents in the Pirate Cat Radio café, and I must say that they bring nothing but raw energy. Drop the Lime graces us with something special from his upcoming January 2011 album, Hot As Hell. And The Captain brings ferocity so effortlessly that we are left searching for bass nevermore.

Feeling bassy,
Mama Feelgood

Episode 72 - Bountiful (ft. Connie Lim)

Connie Lim’s voice takes my senses from an urban café into a seed in the middle of the ocean that grows a tidal wave of lush canopy greens, hot orange birds of paradise, and deep red earth colliding into a majestic grand piano. Flavorpill.com describes Lim to be “armed with a brilliant voice that is both vulnerable and mighty”. Indeed! Connie’s live set is a wonder to behold as this woman brings such intensity that she takes you to distant mystical yet familiar lands. Gracing us from tracks off her latest release, The Hunted, her lyricalism is matched by her piano virtuoso. Check her video for “Sugar”, and you will see that her mighty vocals are as bountiful as her beauty.
