Greetings crew!
Good to be back with another edition of The Sunday Soundtrack. Welcome to the vernal equinox for 2010 (or in layman’s terms…SPRING!). For all the snow we got this past winter, this is a welcome time of the year for me as well.

I hope this blogpost and podcast find you in great spirits. I’ve got a number of new tracks and some previous artists that I hope make for a nice chilled mix. Interestingly enough, I’ve found half of these tracks on YouTube, which is starting to become a treasure trove of tracks for the podcast. For me, at least, it is definitely giving iTunes a run for it’s money…I’ll just leave it at that. That being said, I present to you, the playlist. I’ll leave the blogpost commentary short, and let the music speak for itself.

Shout out to Mizrepresent on Twitter. Hope you enjoy the podcast!


1. Spirit – Monet/The Groove Boutique: Volume One
2. The Time – Soulstance (f/Arthur Miles)/Life Size
3. No Dice – Tipper/Surrounded
4. Good Morning London – Kaya Project/Elixir
5. Of The Roof – Nor Elle/Slapstick
6. Sunset Print – Nor Elle.Slapstick
7. IMG.00.37 – Akotcha/Sound Burger
8. Ready Made -Saulbass Theme/Megasoft Office 97
9. Aztec – Jens Buchert/Sunrider
10. Get Back to Serenity (Beach Mix) – Vargo/Beauty

As always, thanks for joining me here on the Sunday Soundtrack. Yes, you can follow it on Twitter, check out the Facebook group (see the links in the blogroll), and subscribe via iTunes.

Enjoy your moments…keep it chilled!

Peace,
F!

Welcome To The Sunday Soundtrack – 09 Sep 09

Listeners,

How are you? Welcome back to another edition of The Sunday Soundtrack. Always glad you can partake of the music I bring forth. It’s definitely a labor of love and I appreciate the comments left here and abroad. As summer begins to wind down, there is a time that is ending and, as the photo depicts above, a time ahead. Being a four seasons man, I always anticipate the vibrant colors and crisp, cool weather of the autumnal equinox, better known as Fall. While summer is always known to be more care free and lazy, Fall has it’s own goodness to me, and in that…bring it on.

The tracks I bring to you for this podcast are mainly new. As usual, the pics come my favorite source, Soma FM. Incidentally, 60% of the tracks this time came within 3 hours of off and on listening this Friday night.

Inner Shade brings us Little Sunflower, a well made remake of the classic Freddie Hubbard tune, with a twist of drum and bass influence as the foundation of track. I also particularly enjoy the tune because Inner Shade is a spinoff group of Incognito. The CD, 4 Corners, is their solo release, which I think is becoming more difficult to come by. If you happen to find it, definitely add it to your collection. It features the jazz guitar work of Mark Whitfield and the soulfully vocal goodness of Maysa Leak (the primary female lead vocalist Incognito is known for).

In honor of Vikter Duplaix’s new CD and single release entitled “Electric Love”, I bring you an old favorite of mine and a track perfect for the Sunday Soundtrack musical palette, “Another Love Gone By” featuring Esthero.

Another artist I’m happy to feature is Philip Clark…the NEW definition of blue eyed soul. I became acquainted with PC via Twitter after we crossed paths via some musical collaborationwork I am doing with fellow brothers in podcasting Fave and The Big La Todd Kelley, now known as “C3”. After checkin’ out PC’s tracks on Myspace…I was DEFINITELY feelin’ his musical flow. Per further discussion, he “Granted” me (pun intended) the great opportunity to do a remix of a track of my choice from his last CD. Needless to say, after being a remix fan for YEARS, I hopped on it. He knows what track it is, but P, if you are reading this…I’ve got three remixes I am working on of said track…three different genres…I hope you like them!

As for some “smooth jazz” goodness, I was led to include a track, dedicated to a person on Twitter who continually tweets inspirational, resourceful, and heart warming messages everytime I notice them. The track “Monica” is for you, Monica, better known on Twitter as Deltavogue…thanks for the very nice complements you gave the Sunday Soundtrack last week. I greatly appreciate it!

With that being said, the playlist for this weekend is as follows:


1. Little Sunflower – Inner Shade/4 Corners
2. Monica – Fattburger/The Best Of Fattburger
3. Granted – Philip Clark/The State Of Blue-Eyed Soul
4. Sanso Sheep – Jens Buchert/Ice Lounge
5. Sands of Time – Ten Madison/Grounded
6. IMG.00.37 – Akotcha/Sound Burger
7. Elephant (Dub Mix) – Spiral System & Lottie Child/Here We Are – EP
8. Another Great Love Gone By Featuring Esthero – Vikter Duplaix/Bold & Beautiful
9. Reflections – Jens Buchert/Sunrider
10. Billy Bibbit – Moss/East Coast Chip Shop

I hope you’ve enjoyed this edition of the Sunday Soundtrack. Kudos to all my podcasting massive, bring good musical vibes all week long: Darrenkeith (My Love For Music), Fave (The Friday Favecast), Todd Kelley (Flowink), Macedonia (BSOTS), EJ Flavors (OSW), T.

Welcome, once again, listeners to this edition of The Sunday Soundtrack. I trust you are doing well. I haven’t done a featured artist since last year, so I figured it was time to cross that bridge again. As you cross it with me, I am sure u will enjoy embarking on this journey for about an hour. During that time, you’ll discover the sonic landscape and musical scenery of Jens Buchert.

1. Aerosol (Ice Lounge Mix) – Jens Buchert/Ice Lounge
2. Variomat (Crystal Mix) – Jens Buchert/Ice Lounge
3. Smooth Department – Jens Buchert/Intersphere
4. Superdope – Jens Buchert/Intersphere
5. Aztec – Jens Buchert/Sunrider
6. Reflections – Jens Buchert/Sunrider
7. M̩lange El̩ctrique РJens Buchert/Spa Lounge
8. Plastic Heart – Jens Buchert/Spa Lounge
9. Jade РJens Buchert/Caf̩ Lagoon
10. Bamboo Sun РJens Buchert/Caf̩ Lagoon

Discogs describes Jens as a prolific German producer of Chill, Downtempo, Lounge, Dub, Ambient & Techno and owner of JeBu Records. He is known under other aliases as Amberland, Dakini Mandarava, Hydra, and Noah. He’s performed in the group Noctemia.

I discovered Jens, as well as a number of other artists via my long time two resources for The Sunday Soundtrack, XM Radio Channel 84 – Chill and Soma FM’s Groove Salad. He is a very good example of the kind of chilled beats and flow that I like in my downtempo preference…very smooth, laidback, and smooth. As I am typing this, I’m recording the music for this podcast on my Powerbook G4, listening back and enjoying the ambience here in The Lab.

Now that you know a little bit of the man, let’s get into today’s playlist.

You can find out more about Jens Buchert at his main websites:
Jens Buchert’s Official Website
Jens Buchert’s Myspace Page
His expansive discography at Discogs

I hope that u enjoyed the musical scenery as much as I did. Cherish the day, keep it chilled.

peace,
F!
