Jay z-D.O.A (Death of Autotune) and my 1990’s hip hop jams (Archive from my website)

I am a b-girl at heart. Hip Hop is why I bacame a DJ. With the current state of affairs I have strayed from my usual formate and found solos in disco, electro, soul and indierock. I often beat myself up about walking a different path and wonder what happened. At one point I was adamint about only playing Hop Hop music. When did this change? The reality is change is the only perminet thing we’ve got, but everyonce and a while things come back around.
Jay Z’s D.O.A. stirs up something reminestint to that 90’s hip hop sound I once loved so much. When I hear this track, classic hip hop jams pop into my mind. That’s when I knew I loved this song. Plus the lyrics are sick. Thank you Jay Z for finally saying it. D.O.A!

Pete Yorn & Scarlett Johansson. MJ tribute radio show playlist (Archived from my website)

I am always curious when famous actors decide to delve into the the music world. It can sometimes be a disaster and other times it can pass for the commercial consumer. It is not very often that I flip my lid for their music.
There is, however, the times when a talented actor teams up with a talented musician and makes beautiful love for your ears. Such is the case for Pete Yorn and Scarlett Johansson’s Relator.
Love always
DJ Lady Sinclair
