Downtempo Electronica & Jazzy Beats featuring Bonobo

On tonight's edition of After Hours we'll be checking out Migration, the new album by UK-based DJ/Producer Bonobo (AKA Simon Green). Green says Migration was inspired by “the study of people and spaces... It’s interesting how one person will take an influence from one part of the world and move with that influence and affect another part of the world. Over time, the identities of places evolve.” 

We'll also hear some great jazzy beats and abstract hip hop from 2016 courtesy of some amazing record labels from all around the world, featuring: Chillhop Records (Amsterdam), Tour De Manège (Montreal), DirtyBeauty (Germany), Millennium Jazz Music (London) and more! Listen to the re-broadcast Wednesday, Jan. 25th 12:00am CST right here on KRUU radio.

 

On today's edition of Music is My Medication I'm prescribing you a heavy dose of brass and beats from 2016. On the brass side of things we've got Hackney Colliery BandMoon Hooch and Stomptown Brass. Then on the beats are Super Magic HatsEngelwood x Jeff Kaale and Will Magid & Alligator Spacewalk

Stream it live August 9th, 5pm-6pm CDT right here on KRUU radio.

New Hip-Hop and R&B

Alright folks, now that I'm done with my "Best of 2015" series it's time to dig into some new music from 2016. I've pulled out two recent releases to share with you on today's edition of Music is My Medication.

Up first we have French instrumental hip-hop producer Mounika and his new album of tasty soul-breaks Seagulls. Then, on the R&B side of things, we have legendary Chicago-based soul singer Mavis Staples, and her new M. Ward-produced album Livin' On A High Note.

On top of that, we'll hear from Staples' Grammy Award-winning album from last year: Your Good Fortune, plus some more great hip-hop released in the last couple years.

Stream it all live February 23rd, 5pm-6pm CST right here on KRUU radio. (Re-broadcast February 24th at 11pm).
