This volume of #TheSoulMixtape starts with Moonchild talking about what Neo Soul means to them and then taking a trip through some great examples of the genre before taking diversions into Reggae, Acid Jazz and straight up Soul territory! Greats like The Isley Brothers mix with (what were) upstarts like Bilal and Van Hunt, all the way to those Acid Jazz Funkers from the UK Driza Bone and the Brand New Heavies.

Our good friends on Mixcloud, Soul Cool Records, have posted the best of #TheSoulMixtape which includes some new material too. An hour and 45mins of Funk, Hip Hop, Soul, Rare Groove, Soulful House and more, mixed with interviews with the likes of Jill Scott, 9th Wonder, Erykah Badu and Busta Rhymes. Check it out …





This is a mix I recorded some years ago just for fun at my home. Certainly something different, but I know that you guys like good Hip Hop if you generally dig Tramp. Enjoy!
