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).

Some of the music played is available for free streaming/download from the artists themselves. Check out the playlist for links: Playlist

 

On tonight's edition of After Hours I'll be playing my favorite funk and soul released last year. Stream it live January 30th, 10pm-12am CST right here on KRUU radio.

2015: Brass, Soul & Beats II

  

On today's edition of That Righteous Jive I've got some brass, soul and beats from 2015.

Then on the soul side of things we've got Brooklyn-based Phony Ppl, a band that combines "vintage astral funk, colorful world music, and dusted-out hip-hop either from the future or the past." We'll check out their new album Yesterday's Tomorrow. We'll also hear some more from MonophonicsSound of Sinning.
