This weeks beat of the week was inspired by a lovely lunch spent napping in Green Park and is also dedicated to Danny Fresh because I know how much he loves this track.

Tuesday 15th March was a sad day – we lost two artists. Nobody ever came close to touching Nate Dogg’s smooth chorus vocals. You just knew that when he featured on a track he would give it that cool vibe that he always possessed. I am definitely feeling older these days as more and more artists I like seem to be dropping like flies in the last couple of years.

This week I’ve been gathering some music for a set this Friday 19th November @ Stokey Records Bar and have been getting into P Funk quite a lot. I will definitely be dropping this Dre sampled classic, and maybe the controversial remix to represent the East Coast too.

Now that I spend most of my day working it’s been a while. Aloe Blacc has a real nice and smooth voice. He shot to fame when his biggest hit, I Need a Dollar, was used for HBO’s How to Make it in America. I like him so much that you need to check out some of his covers.
Billie Jean – Michael Jackson
Change is Gonna Come – Sam Cooke
