Refuge: Zo’s Secret Stash, Wed. 11/18

Everyone has this project, right? It’s free. It’s awesome. What are you waiting for?


Zo’s work is a Refuge staple and should be heavy in your personal rotations. There’s surely no shortage of it, with his nine solo albums, numerous features and high profile collaborations that are among the best modern soul releases of the last 5 years.

Zo! has stepped up to a new level since joining up with Nicolay and Phonte as part of the Foreign Exchange Music imprint. This partnership has so far yielded Zo! & Tigallo Love the 80’s and Leave It All Behind, with more to come in 2010.

With all this creative output, I know the homie has to be sitting on some nuggets that have never been outside his home studio or graced ears other than his own. Thus was born the idea for Zo’s Secret Stash.

Zo hosts a listening session of rare highlights from his body of work. They could be joints that have never come out and might never see release. They could be in-progress joints. There might even be a sneak peek at some of the material from his upcoming solo project, if we’re lucky and he’s comfortable with that. For the early shift at Refuge, we’ll be turning the spot into Zo’s own screening room where he handpicks material to share exclusively with Refuge fam.

Maybe there might be another one of these in the chamber.

  1. Yeah, I’ll be there. I downloaded this the other day. I’m ready to do another dance. That was the greatest. Thanks for bringing great vibes to the masses!

  2. […] Zo!’s Secret Stash was like story hour back in kindergarten with similar anticipation and focused attention as Zo! revealed rare treats from his back catalog. It got so good him that he previewed a few cuts from his solo album SunStorm. I guess he felt at ease since the rough mixes sounded pretty good on the system. It reminded me that I’m not the only who has spent a lot of social time with my friends excitedly playing obscure tunes for each other. Thanks to DC heads who showed up to prove that this Refuge thing might work. […]
