Refuge #15: Soldiers of Love

Every component of our Sade listening party worked out perfectly. From the food to the Sade themed cocktail samples courtesy of Ciroc (thanks Karim!), the art (big up Charles Jean-Pierre), the eager crowd of music lovers and party people and the sponsorship support. I speak on behalf of LSP in thanking April at Sony for […]

Refuge #14 recap and Sade listening party

It’s almost cursory to mention it at this point because everyone already knows but we’ll be playing the new Sade album in its entirety tomorrow, after a special video message from the golden lady herself. I hope you’re on the list because we’re near capacity. There will be libations, hors d’oeuvres and chances to win […]

Refuge #12: Intimate connection

No Kleeer, just another evening pulling treats from the old box o’ choons to entertain my friends. Didn’t really dig into the new-new stuff last week, but at Refuge the records tell me what to play. Ty – “What You Want” I push Ty the way that Jehovah’s Witnesses push salvation. If you dig progressive, […]

Refuge #10: New Year’s Eve Eve

Some folks told their friends and they brought their friends. Then some old college friends showed up. Then some friends who were having a business meeting over drinks caught the boogie in their bodies. Then all the people who’ve been asking me “where do you spin?” but always forget the answer all showed up at […]

Refuge #9: Straight R&B

Looking at the highlights below, I guess that’s how I was feeling last week. Vibe Conductor Pick: Kidkanevil – “When I Dig” featuring Kissey Asplund, Blu It almost feels premature to be rocking this now because it’s such a spring jam. Kissey Asplund does her cutesy space kitten thing and Blu’s Dana Dane impression takes […]

Refuge #7: Do you know these records?

In case you missed Refuge last week, please add these to your personal rotation. You’ll be a much happier individual. Nuspirit Helsinki – “Silent Steps” I can’t believe it’s going on eight years since I first got hip to the wave of future hybrid jazzy soul that was rolling out of Scandinavia. The Gothenburg scene […]

Refuge #6: Boundless beats

The pre-Thanksgiving session was fresh. No one was there then everyone came through all at once. I almost made Brett repeat his set because he played so many hot records early on. But then he had more hot records so it was all good. To mark the occasion of an old friend being the first […]

Refuge: Brett from Boundless, Wed. 11/25

I’m excited about the guest possibilities shaping up at Refuge. The Anthony Valadez release and Zo!’s listening session were the beginnings of a steady stream of treats. For our pre-Turkey Day session, Brett from Boundless (and Brooklyn) will be dropping a set of modern boogie, nu jazz and broken beat goodness. At least that’s what […]
