Enjoy that throwback boom bap funk/soul/jazz rooted hip-hop but tired of hearing those same overplayed classic nineties tracks, and in need of hearing something brand new for the first time but done in that good ole hip-hop tradition? Then check out this one hour WFMU radio show here/now when once again I will be playing all brand new 2019 hip-hop guaranteed to appeal to your sensibilities. Ready to play today are instrumental tracks by such producers as Maitre D, G Mills, DJ Rhettmatic, DJ Pnutz, C-Lance, RenRok, DJ Obsolete, Tarik Robinson and Nicholas Craven + emcee focused tracks by such artists as ZelooperZ (feat. Earl Sweatshirt), Blu & Exile, Bun B & Statik Selektah (feat. Haile Supreme), Mitchell James (feat. Planet Asia), Ghostface Killah & Raekwon & Harley, Asaru, Certain.Ones, Awaxx (feat. Otherwize), Ink The Urban Myth and Horror City & Parental + + more including new 2019 remixes of classic tracks by the late hip-hop greats Craig Mack (DJ Supa Dave remix) and Guru (Cookin’ Soul remix). - OK? Thanks for tuning in and joining the comments + hope ur summer is off to good start!!!

Indeed! I’ll pass the news on To Edith and pray that she’s not too shy to make an appearance. But that would be cheesecake if it can happen. I’ll keep you updated on any developments.
