New Track: Robert Glasper – “Consequences Of Jealousy” ft. Meshell Ndegeocello (Sassy Geemix by Georgia Anne Muldrow)


Pure ecstasy is this new Georgia Anne Muldrow remix of Robert Glasper’s “Consequences of Jealousy” featuring Meshell Ndegeocello. Is this even fair? Or right? Loving the squiggly sway of the new beat and the enchanting sprinkles of Muldrow vocals to compliment the already mesmerizing hum of Meshell’s voice. Feels like we’re being transported to the middle of a sacred dance on another planet.

Below, also stream Pete Rock’s mellowed out remix of the title track, “Black Radio” as well as a breezy hip hop spin on “Afro Blue” with Erykah Badu compliments of 9th Wonder and special guest appearance from Phonte.

All these tracks and others will be featured on Black Radio Recovered – The Remix EP, out next week!

We have some unfortunate news regarding this edition of Church: Mark de Clive-Lowe was robbed while on tour in Europe last Sunday…they got his passport, computer and a whole bunch of other valuables.

Because of visa issues, he can’t come back into the US until everything is resolved, so IAN FRIDAY will be turning it into an all night dance party which WILL be incredible! Cover’s gonna be reduced, and we’ll make it up to you on July 13th when Mark will be back in NYC full force.

You can read more about what he went through here…There’s also a place on the blog to donate money if you want to help him recover from the $10K+ he lost…
