The World According to Jonesy Soft Rock Special

Jonesy has a knack for digging up classic tracks that you’ve either never heard before, or at least haven’t heard in a long long time. His extensive knowledge of music and the history behind the music is only overshadowed by his ability to pick the precise moment at which to deploy the perfect track. Both of these skill sets are exemplified his latest installment of his radio show The World According to Jonsey.

The World According To Jonesy – Radio Show #36

 

Back from a recent stint at space camp in mother Russia, cosmonaut and sonic voyager, Jonesy smooths out this set with an array of cuts from the golden era of jazz, funk, and soul. With well positioned tracks like “Caught Up In The Rapture” by Anita Baker, “High Society” by Norma Jean, and “You’re My Last Chance” by 52nd Street, Jonesy transcends the need for a jukebox as his record collection never gathers dust. Here’s to you dear friend. Welcome back!

Gilles Peterson Worldwide Box Of Delights

The past few installments of the Worldwide Show, Gilles has been running the show solo – taking us deep into the mind of a musical guru. He never fails to introduce the listening audience to cuts that the artists themselves have barely heard outside of the studio. We are delighted to catch up with this young man as he teaches us a thing or two about proper mixology.

Lee Bannon – Mix for Mary Anne Hobbs’ XFM Radio Show

 

Sacramento based producer Lee Banon, while only 24 years old, is already a decorated artist in his own right. Having worked with Talib Kweli, The Alchemist, U-N-I, Curren$y, and Saigon, to name a few, this dude is definitely well on his way. Last month, he released his Fantastic Plastic EP, which you can stream in full after the jump.

Today, we want to share a supremely dope mix he did for Mary Anne Hobbs’ radio show. Hollowed pulsing sounds are chopped into a mystical ambient concoction – you can’t help but close your eyes and fade out.
