The Reverend's Marmite mix

Now, I'll be upfront about this. Some of you won't like it. Sorry. Now that's done with, I hope that some of you do. I have completely ignored the 'soul' part of the blog and embraced the 'spektrum' part of the name instead. I decided to post this, mostly acoustical singer-songwriter-based mix for a couple of reasons. Firstly, inspired by the happiness bomb that was Ion's excellent English folk mix, I wanted to put some music together that was almost the polar opposite of the usual soulfunknufunkbeatsmodreggaelounge stuff I would normally play to a dancefloor crowd. Secondly, having just split up with my girlfriend of two years, and being a bit of a cliche, this is the stuff I am listening to right now (as per instructions at the top of the page).

Right, tracklisting and shit, I'll do in the comments section. Save paper....

Oh he's a jolly good Fela

Here's a mix of some hiphop and reggae and stuff sandwiched between 2 Fela tracks. I thought it was about time we had something from the king of afrobeat on here, the first track is 24 minutes long and includes the terms misappropriation and maladministration! Enjoy!

A new album? Apparently a new trilogy in the works. Anyway, Matthew Herbert singing for the first time on what seems to be new material a bit different from the Big Band stuff.

New Massive Attack album

I just got hold of the new Massive Attack album Heligoland and have had a couple of listens. Although I didn't like it at first, it has grown on me a little bit and I have a feeling it is going to be one of those albums that just keeps getting better and better. I just wondered if anyone else out there has it and if so what do you think of it? That's all really! Keep the good mixes coming boys !
