What’s up, y’all! It’s June, it’s Summer and the outdoor activities are popping here in NYC so let’s kick it off right! But FIRST, we want to extend our heartfelt gratitude at the way y’all are receiving these mixes! I even got an anonymous tip in my virtual tip jar (below)!!! How cool is that?? LOLOLOL – no, seriously – I don’t mind going the extra mile for y’all because I don’t take your support for granted! So without further ado, our featured song for this week is (drumroll, please…)

DJ Beloved, Mcleod – “What You Won’t Do For Love (Jihad Muhammad Remix)” – ladies n’ gennelmens – THIS is how you remake a song. Mcleod really does justice to the original while also putting his own flair on the classic. With DJ Beloved on the production (he’s really been putting out heat – it’s really not a game with him!) and the legendary Jihad Muhammad on the remix, this is just one of those tracks that will be in rotation for a minute, so y’all might as well settle in – this one’s gonna go for awhile, LOL!

 

 

 

We also got some battle heat from Rob Flawless, a Layabouts remix of a Nathan Haines house classic, some heat from the Arawakan label and sneak peak at the latest joint from Zodiac Thump Music! As time goes on, you’re constantly learning as a producer and sometimes you look back and say to yourself, “this needs a re-boot”. We released “Tuff Yard” about 3 years ago (it’s on Traxsource and pretty much everywhere else), and I have always wanted to revisit this track – so I finally did it! We present to you “Tuff Yard (Libra’s Transposed Rhumba Edit)” for your consideration (we’ll have a release date very soon!).

Welcome to Zodiac Thump Radio! Lord, have mercy – here’s another one! This music brings back maaaaad memories, you know? I remember where I was, who was on the block, the temperature, my haircut, my clothes, what grade I was in, who worked in what store – man that’s the power of music. The right song can pull up a memory that was completely gone from your conscious mind. So this one was nostalgic for me in a very deep way. Download this, put it in your player – and bop to work or wherever you go when you leave the crib, LOL

This is ThroBack Vol. II – enjoy!
