Back in college which means back to long periods of time on public transport or, in a positive vibes kinda universe, long periods of listening time. This week I’ve been listening to a lot of 80s r’n’b, Rick James and The Gap Band and stuff like that. I tried to find some free remixes or whatever so there’s a couple thrown in there. It’s weird because a lot of it is really remixable but I didn’t find a lot. The thing about it is that a lot of these songs were sampled in the late 80s through to the 90s and a lot of the artists that sampled it made big money as pop/hip-hop/electronic acts so none of it ends up being free. Will Smith ripped off a ton of old r’n’b tracks and I really don’t want to deal with Big Willy Style right now.
Last time I was talking about not listening to any rap anymore so I went and listened to stuff that seems to be big. I didn’t find a lot a really liked. Chuck Inglish’s album seems pretty solid and I like the new Childish Gambino. I’m gonna listen through the older Chuck Inglish tapes and I’ll get back to them on here later.
Here’s volume 6 anyway. I had trouble with downloads for this one, tracks were claiming to be free but then wouldn’t download. I think I weeded all of them out. Leave a comment if any of them don’t work in this set or if you find any in earlier playlists.
