Mixed Ape Music Allstars Compilation (2013)

Regulars might remember the Dunkel Radio mixtape we gave you a while back? One of Denmarks finest beat makers, Terry Tester, provided us with one of the finest mixtapes of 2012. No doubt. That mix featured an amazing track previous unreleased from Terry track entitled "Clean up your act". 

That track is now finally available on the Mixed Ape Music label's latest compilations. Released last week it features some of the finest artist from label owner Per Vers a.k.a. Per Uldal's archives. It includes previous and upcoming releases from Vincent Van Gogo (featured on the dope Nova Tunes compilations), Kriswontwo, Blacc El and of course Terry Tester.

For us Terry's "Clean up your act" and his new jam "Be alright" are the take away tracks but the whole compilation is a keeper. We especially appreciate the fact that Per took the effort to put together a dope artwork for the project. A much overlooked part of releasing music these days.

Get the whole thing below while it's still available!

RaFa Orchestra - Live at Stockholm Jazz (2011)

A Tuesday treat from Rasmus Faber! The live recording of his epic show from Stockholm Jazz Festival 2011 featuring among others Emily McEwan, Simone Moreno and the amazing Melo on vocals (he's got upcoming material of his own by the way).

If I remember correctly this show was initially released in Japan on a limited DVD but now mr Faber is generous enough to put it out for everyone to enjoy. It was a great performance followed by the Robert Glasper Experiement who we interviewed later that night (read that interview here)

If you enjoy the clip the whole thing is available for purchase over at the Fareplane label store.

Beathearts Rewind #56: Queen Latifah - Give me your love (1991)

Stumbled over this lil' gem the other day. One of my alltime favourite Latifah tracks re-edited and fused with the originally sampled Curtis Mayfield record "Give me your love" (1972). It 's reminiscent of the classic Warren G/Michael McDonald "Regulate/I Keep forgetting" re-edit.

Back in 1991, Danish producers Soulshock and Cutfather were blowing up and they also produced the two outstanding tracks off the album that still sound dope today (Fly girl & Give me your love). Latifah's geniously combined vocals and rhyming with the classic Mayfield sample and the patented Soulpower productions harmonies. Beautiful!
