Real Radio July 2011


Kicking off this month’s mix is Clams Casino. Already a highly sought after producer in the southern rap scene (Soulja Boy, Lil B), his new EP finds him exploring the hazy beatscapes with twisted samples and analog synth textures in line with the finest post Dilla beatsmiths. Lukid, Onra, Oddisee and of course Dilla all keep a solid bump with soulful undercurrents. L.A. darling and artist of the moment, Flying Lotus exhibits one of the various directions producers aligned with instrumentalists can take post hip hop jazz. Drop in NYC underground artists Breez Evahflowin and a smart cut from The Roots latest album, before getting into the 70’s jazz groove which is always a source of inspiration for this DJ. Sunshine grooves for cooling down. The follow through for the mix keeps the vibe expanding and the groove on point. Pour yourself an Arnold Palmer.
