Wassapnin' party people and yes this is another edition of the goodvibez and it's with great pleasure that I bring you my latest mix... Jazz Hop. I've been cooking up that compilation for a while and I must say that I'm happy with the results. There ate some very known names, some new comers but the mix is sucka free as always.
It was a difficult task as usual to choose my top 3, I put a lot of effort to choose the right tracks, make sure they go well together. I'll go with Check The Rhime '09 by QuEST & Nero two upcoming rhymers but damn they represent a cover of one of my all time favorite tracks. Push On by Surreal & The Sound Providers is the perfect definition of jazz hop, a nice bass line and Surreal just flowin' on the mic. Now last but not the least is a Canadian rapper by the name of Shad. I know right now Drake is blowin' up but he doesn't come close to Shad's lyrical ability. The track telephone will demonstrate what I'm talking about and his album TSOL is not to be slept on. Honorable mention to Gift of Gab with Flashback, Pat D & Lady Paradox with I Wanna Feel Days straight from the UK and a young producer by the name of Suff Daddy with Join the Club.
Much love to the goodvibez followers, keep in mind that I'm doing this strictly for the love of music and it's with great pleasure that I share this with all ya'll. The artwork is made by me check out more of my artwork here.

I know, I know what you are all going to say, Mos Dub's been out for weeks if not a few months but i've posted Jaydiohead as well as Double Check Your Head (Beastie Boys, Check Your Head Blends) so I wasn't about to skip Mos Dub.
Picture this Mos Def's Black on Both Sides classic oh yeah i said it CLASSIC, that album made me believe once again in hip hop. SO merge Mos Def's lyrical genius to more classic material (reggae, dub samples) and tadaaaa ! Mos Dub but what makes this a bullseye is that the music flow naturally, like this was meat to be same as peanut butter and jelly.
I don't know if it's a trend but I've heard a few mash ups and most of them we're ...Ok at best but this my loyal readers, this takes the cake. So sit back, chillax indulge into your sin of choice (greenery or a nice beverage) and just let Max bring you on the Dub side.

ArtOfficial/The Payback 2010 -Free Download
So here I am blogwalking and I was checking out Real hiphop's post and something caught my attention, now I remember seeing that post on a few other sites/blogs and i decided to give it a try. ArtOfficial from Miami and the free download: The Payback, hip hop band a la The Roots . It's a 12-track mixtape /street album consists of 2 emcees Newsense and Logics rhyming over the live instrumental tracks by musicians: Danny Perez, Manny Patino, Ralf Valencia and Keith Cooper, the recreation of classic instrumentals such as rock legend Jimi Hendrix (“Voodoo”) to jazz trio Medeski, Martin & Wood (title track “The Payback”) and one of my all time classic Don't Sweat The Technique.
Bottom line is this is just some good music, it has that boom-bap 90's feel to it, the sax player is mighty nice and it's just a cool album to vibe to and they will be featured in my future mixes for sure.
Get it here for free

thegoodvibez presents: DJ Cam
I decided to introduce a little something new called the goodvibez presents, basically I will put together a compilation of some of my favorite artists and the first one is DJ Cam.
Dj Cam born Laurent Daumail is a french DJ and his style is a hybrid of hip hop and jazz. Last time I counted he had something like 13 albums under his belt starting from 1994 with Underground Vibes. Now how did i discover DJ Cam ? As you may or may not know, while in college, I had the coolest job, I was working in a music store, it was small and we mostly sold commercial stuff but it's still up to date one of my favorite jobs. Anyhow at a certain point, huge mega-stores started opening and needless to say it took a few months to shut us down. Even if I hated the huge mega stores I walked in and well I was amazed of the choice they had, imports, rare albums and their hip hop section had way more choices then i was accustomed to, on top of that you could ask to listen to an album which was amazing.
So there I was in that mega-store and by pure fluke I found DJ cam's the beat condoctor in the acid jazz section, I couldn't believe it they even had an acid jazz section. so here i am in line with a pile of cd's to listen to and as soon it started, '' Cuz I love hip hop like Madonna loves dick'' and I was hooked. Now within these 13 albums some are a little darker and more on the edge of trip hop like the loa project vol. 2. Then you have his later music like soulshine that you can tell by the title is more soul oriented but lately i rediscovered him with DJ Cam's Quartet ( Diggin' and Rebirth of cool) both of these albums are insane for any music lover. I can resume the last 2 albums jazz quartet with dj and a whole lotta groove and that how I rediscovered Dj Cam. Of course when an artist has sucha vaste repertoire it's not easy to choose 15 songs, so I choose my favorites but also i wanted to display his taste for different moods and ambiances.

My first post of the new decade and here is another goodvibez mix that I'm sharing with you guys, after my indie phase (podcast 19 & 21) here is a nice chilled out electronica mix. I also added a little mp3 player to my blog, the songs are taken from the latest podcast you can use it to preview the songs before downloading. My favorite tracks we hard to choose as always but here we go and they are not in any particular order. The High Road by Broken Bells which consists of DJ Danger Mouse and James Mercer. I've been a fan of Danger Mouse since the days of the Grey Album and he never stopped to surprise me, he worked with Ceee-Lo (Gnarles Barkley) MF Doom to name a few and now he choose a new direction Broken Bell's sound is folky the album should come out later this year. Next is Stylo (Ft. Mos Def & Bobby Womack) by Gorillaz is one of my favorite groups and the characters are well crafted, I've been waiting for the album for a while now and word around the web is that it should come out later on this year as well. I was never able to label Gorillaz because the jump from one style to another but the music is always solid. Juicy Grub (feat Yousif) by Pat D & Lady Paradox is a hip hop group from the UK, it's some straight jazz-hop think british Digable Planets, I love how the Brits take hip hop and add their own twist. The rest of the songs are as great but I have a soft spot for these choices.
I noticed more followers on the blog, thanks a lot it's much appreciated please, comments and feedback are always welcomed. My next post will be thegoodvibez present, basically I will take an artist and compile some songs from all their albums and the first one will be DJ Cam and it will be posted real soon on this note I hope you will enjoy this mix that I've cooked for all y'all and keep in mind I do this blog because i just love sharing that great music with you.
