Deep Soul Sessions – Nuff Said


Dedication Podcast – Deep Soul Sessions

In the past I have dropped a straight hour or two of [tag]podcasts[/tag] featuring some of my favorite DJs/Producers:

[tag]Louie Vega[/tag]
[tag]Franck Rogers[/tag]
[tag]Quentin Harris[/tag]
[tag]Rasmus Faber[/tag]

I’ve also been awarded a few new listeners who send a host of requests, I want to know, who would you like to see showcased?  The highest number of votes will get an ultimate [tag]Deep Soul Sessions[/tag] throwdown.

Coming up next, “NUFF SAID”… the [tag]Deep Soul Sessions[/tag] long lost mix that I originally started as the Quentin Harris showcase.  I ended up doing it again but with a whole new first hour playlist, which is what you got as the “Memorial Day Madness” mix.  This one is right out of the gate bangin….


If You Were A DJ…

I recently suffered the loss of my grandmother who was extremely close to me. She had been suffering from dementia for eight years and after further research on this disease, I realized that she had lived around the average lifespan associated with that disease. I felt like my world was coming down on me until I started playing music a few nights after she died. It was almost 2:30 in the morning before I retired for the night. I then realized, as a DJ, how music can effect everyone differently.

I ended up on a road trip to Chicago recently and on the way back to Detroit, we listened to about three cd’s it changed the mood of the whole trip. Again music can be the catalyst for so many emotions, so I got to thinking, if you were a DJ, what would you play?

If at this very moment you were behind the table and you have to play a song that described what you were feeling, what would it be?

Today…it would be …Beautiful – India.Aire 

Jill Scott Photos…

Well as promised, here are the five, yes I said five decent shots from the Jill Scott show on Thursday night.  Even though I was a part of the media, it was quite difficult to snap pictures.  Needless to say, I did my best. 


The Jill Scott Experience….

6/21/07 [tag]Jill Scott[/tag] – Detroit, MI 

We all got the sense that she was going to be something more than great. We had the pleasure of experiencing her in many ways before we laid eyes on her or at least caught a glimpse of her singing over The Roots tracks. We had the pleasure of finding out her name was J-I-L-L-S-C-O-T-Tttttttttttttttttt….. Jill Scott Representing North Philly! Or we called her Jilly From Philly. The Black Lily shows, $15 shows at your local underground spot, the conversations or debates over who was better, Erykah or Jill?! The polls always put them at a dead tie because everyone looks to Jill for that “something” and we can say the same about Badu.

Jill sang to a packed house at Detroit’s Chene Park Amphitheater along the waterfront last night. The view was amazing and I am sure she felt a rush after seeing the setting and her crowd awaiting after Detroit’s own Dwele was the set up man for the evening. She introduced a few new tracks from her upcoming summer realease, [tag]The Real Thing [/tag]and seemed to welcome the warm reception to her upcoming project.

With that being said, I loved the show but there was something missing. She did not banter with the crowd as much as she has been known to and I do not recall her leaving her stance unless she was conducting the band to their respective solos. The reminants of Jilly from Philly were there but I think she got lost on the way to the show. Maybe I’m a harsh critic, maybe it was the vibe she caught or maybe Jill is going through a tough moment. I, like many others, have been spoiled many times in the past and that is what we have to go on. However, I admire the fact that she is laying it all out on the line and doing what she does best, S-I-N-G! I’d still pay top dollar to enjoy her melodic therapy for what we like to call, life.

There was a particular show she gave and between every song there was a story. That story lead to an understanding. Which ultimately lead to me internalizing her thoughts and feelings as to what I was going through at the moment….so I could relate. I am positive that the other 4,499 people in that room took away the same feeling as I did.

That’s what made me love her music.

Last night, I felt something different. Maybe her career is shifting and I do hope it is for the best. After her set, she left to the backstage area for around twenty minutes and was escorted away by a myriad of security guards. I did not get the chance to get any media shots due to her quick flight, but I am greatful that she was here and blessed us with her presence.

Thank you J-I-L-L-S-C-O-T-T…representin’ North Philly yall…
