September (jazz) compilation 2019 this [2019-09-29]

Doing an extra compilation, more or less only with modern jazz. Didn't find a proper source for Andersson .Paak's version of Old Town Road, so it's here just as a video clip.

Ashley Henry is my new favourite, the beats and piano mix well. Nice flow.
"30/70 are a Melbourne Hip-Hop and R&B family delivering signature hypnotic grooves drenched in love, weed, meditation and spirituality." Quite like the broken beats, sounds just like London to me.
Everything Eska does.
Kiefer, a blend of jazz and hip-hop.

September compilation 2019 this [2019-09-22]

Videos can transform and bring a song to a new level. A couple of good examples this month.

Pomplamoose is on a roll, so many nice covers recently.
Big fan of Benny Sings. Tim van Berkestijn has real talent. Quite often different in the way Dutch are a bit different from the rest of us.
Tove Lo AND Kylie? Had to be great.
H.E.R. - 10/10p. Smooth.
For fans of Berlin electronica, this is a good month. Lots of new music from Ame, Booka Shade and Apparat. That Apparat video is scary, like the quote, "It is a feeling of relief, almost of pleasure, at knowing yourself at last genuinely down and out. You have talked so often of going to the dogs - and well, here are the dogs, and you have reached them, and you can stand it. It takes off a lot of anxiety."

August compilation 2019 this [2019-09-07]

I like Lana Del Rey's new album. I guess it is about americana, a promised land, life & dreams and the recent troubles, but the references are too complicated to me. The best songs are like cinematic pieces, of something important that I don't quite get.
The highlight for me is DRAM - big vocals and a slow groove. Drums by Red Hot Chili Pepper's Chad Smith btw.
There are a couple of nice acoustic videos with Mae Muller, worth checking out.
Seems like BNH is alive again, new album, lots of guest vocals (Siedah is perhaps my all-time favourite singer in BNH).
New sounds from London Elektricity is always something to look forward to. Quality D&B.
