Josh Garrels

My timing has been perfect... Josh Garrels just released his new album for free... and I'm listening to it as we speak. His 2008 album Jacaranda is PHENOMENAL. Great songwriting, incredible voice, beautiful arrangments... Definately a must download and listen!

DJ Screw

I have both of these songs from my most recent download binge... have no idea where they're from but am really enjoying right now. With a tiny amount of research, it looks like DJ screw was holding it down in Houston back in the late 90's chopping and screwing thousands of songs and including them in hundreds of mixtapes creating a huge underground following in the process.... rest in peace dj screw.

SBTRKT - Wildfire (ft. Little Dragon)

Wow... this track impacts immediately. Althought I'm not that familiar with his work, for some reason I have failed to connect with SBTRKT until i stumbled across this track with Little Dragon. Love at first listen...
