Aquarians time !

An earthday celebrations show this week, time of the Aquarians - and an occasion to revisit the J Dilla tribute i did 5 years ago,
now with more tunes from the true genius who was born 7th February 1974 and left earth far too early on the 10th 2006. Unforgettable beats & music.

Before that just a few tunes that i like in a kind of random wildstyle, from Pharoah Sanders to Ian Dury and a soulsearching exclusive out of Frankfurt.

plus: Happy Valentine Birthday, Lily!
enjoy the music.

Wildstyle mix before and after the mixtape, including lots of spring 2011 previews like the mysterious Jupiter Tuning Center, givin the term downtempo a new meaning with a heavy does of jazz included, limited blue 10inch only return of the 2562 sound, Hauschkas piano kickin the dancefloor, and Rick Wilhite with a tune from his forthcoming full length - check the words! And from one of THE jazzdance albums of all time, Kamal & The Brotherhood, a true supergroup of jazz masters, the title tune plus a real edit by Theo P closing the show. Funky 'n' sexy.
