Pure by Blue Six
This is one of my favorite songs on a music compilation I’ve had for years: Nude Dimensions Vol. 2, mixed by Mauricio Aviles. The Petalpusher remix of Pure used in this mix is from Miguel Migs. It encapsulated the San Francisco deep house sound [...]
I just heard Lillian Lopez, the lead singer of the disco-era group Odyssey passed away. I don’t think I need to mention the power of the influence of art forms like music. This song definitely encouraged my desire to live in Manhattan when I listened to it as a child.
Bob Marley had this idea. Kind of a virologist idea. He believed that you can cure racism and hate; literally cure it, by injecting music and love into people’s lives. When he was scheduled to perform at a peace rally, a gun man came to his house and shot him down. Two [...]

Jennifer Hudson has been flying below the radar, above the radar and beside the radar for a few years now. I’ve watched her career and [...]
I suppose this is more of an observation, than rant. It still signifies how far the music industry has fallen. Why does everything all of a sudden sound like Fragma Toca’s Miracle (which was a remix/mashup-combo of two songs in and of itself) and Faithless Insomnia (or We Come One) circa late 1990′s [...]
