I’ve really been feeling rap from Tanzania lately.

BTW: New mix and probably the best interview questions I’ve been asked at Red Bull Academy Radio

    Keep feeling the rap! This stuff’s been great. Old Skool yet exotic. Terrific.

    And some Professor Jay too! Awesome (though I’ve got this on CD).
    The title (J.O.S.E.P.H) translates to
    Learn, See, Say, Teach, Excel, Motivate!
    The song titles translate as

    How Can I Help You?
    Trust Me.
    It’s Enough.
    Idiomatic, not sure. Create Happiness?
    Border by Border.
    ? Slang. I’d love to know what it means.

    See title above.
    Forgive Me.
    Where Did I Go Wrong?
    You Have…
    No Chaos Here.

    man, its been a while!!! still checking very day b/c when you drop a good one it is HOT, for sure…. well, hoping it’ll be a on the lines of a Zakari/Zakori or Allan Family or something like that…. Happy Holidays!!!

    Speaking of Zakari, I finally finished making a test of slowing-down the songs. I got inspired by a Robert Johnson post over at Global Groovers, and started experimenting with Seidi Alama. Less 9% seemed perfect, so I just applied that to all songs, without any individual fiddling. Hope at least one person downloads it AND enjoys it… Abin Dunia was always my favorite tape, and now it sounds like a whole new tape that I’ve never even heard before! Thank you, Mr. Awesome Tapes Dude for posting it in the first place. I remember you said you were cool with the idea of my experiment. Its not to take anything away from you, b.c without you I wouldn’t even have been having so much fun with it!
