I can’t fall asleep… I have been listening to this new tune lately. Wasn’t sure what to think of it when I first heard it, but I have to admit, it has really grown on me. We all know how much I adore José and I can’t wait for the new album! The Dreamer was on repeat last summer, so safe to say that my expectations are rather high. But yeah, in case you haven’t heard “Promise In Love”, here it is:

OrsiiCast 5

I am finally BACK ladies and gentlemen, delivering some new tunes in the form of my 5th official OrsiiCast! Sorry for the long wait, but as you know, there has been a lot going on. However, during the long wait, we have somehow slipped into the month of May and hopefully with some nice weather approaching, I thought I would put together a little mix perfect for outdoor activities in the sun, such as BBQ’s or perhaps a lazy day in the park. This baby is packed with some funky goodness, a few old ones, a couple of newish ones, and plenty booty shaking ones. I think this quote from the beginning of a James Brown song fits in rather well with the essance of this podcast:

– What you ‘gon play now?
– Bobby, I don’t know… But what eva I play, its got to be funky!

And with those words from the funkmaster himself, I will leave you to it. Enjoy my friends!

As promised, I am back with a fresh selection of great tunes, just in time to lay down the soundtrack for the coming week (which hopefully will be as sunny as previous one). The 4th edition is a nice blend of soulful sounds, funky beats and warm harmonies. It includes Speech Debelle’s latest single “The Key”, two amazing tracks from Mayer Hawthorne and The County (my latest obsession “Maybe So, Maybe No” being one of them), and a mix I made of one of my favourite songs of all time, California Soul by Marlena Shaw, plus one of the best remixes I have heard of the same song (by Diplo if anybody is interested). I had some major technical difficulties making this podcast, not to mention the difficulties I had actually uploading it. However, it is now here, for all of you to enjoy. So turn up your speakers and press play, this little bad boy deserves a bit of extra volume.
