Love this new one. Will be busting this one out for a while! I think that it will mix very well with some Grace Jones.

'Compared to What" is my favorite Roberta Flack song. John Legend and the Roots do a nice little cover on their new album and I am not mad at it. It is actually really funky.

I have a slight Bob James obsession. In my collage days, when I used to chill out to this stuff, people would walk into my dorm and ask me why I was listening to 70's porn music.
Bob James has been one of the most sought after musicians of the 70's/80's jazz/funk sound by Hip Hop and Electronic producers searching for the ultimate sample. If you go through is music catalog you will find little snippets here and there that have been sampled over and over.
Here are are few of my jams:
Tappan Zee - Bob James by USM Publishing
I can't even begin to explain what this jam means to me. It is one of my TOP JAMS of all time. A top ten. Listening to it fills me with a feeling of whimsy and nostalgia. I discovered this jam in my high-school days and spent a lot of time daydreaming to it. A synth, jazz, funk master piece by the one and only Bob James.

A little Revenge of the Nerds, a little Never Ending Story, a little Daft Punk and a lot of synth. Still on the underground tip of the Elctro Disco scene Futurecop! has that 80's revival sound that club kids love. Just heavy enough and still disco danceable.
