The (B)yond Side // Brandy – He Is

First time I heard this was a few years back while waiting in a theater for a movie to begin. It was Brandy, by this time she had already vanished from the main scene and this tune was from the Full Moon album from a few years before. I instantly fell in love with this song. Great lyrics, great melody, great by the book R&B. Take some time and listen it deserves it. Good Job Norwood!

Super Tuesday Poll // Pop VS Soda ?

Okay this is a classic debate for those of us who have ventured from our home towns to see what this bubble has to offer. All over the US we are constantly asked what we say SODA? or POP? What do you say? I’m from Michigan, Detroit Michigan to be exact and I have no idea what SOOOODAAAAA is? Some places say neither and call everything Coke, some places even say SodaPop.  But I will put the question to the test. I will also show a map of the US and where they say what.

Cortex – Troupeau Bleu / Audio Crimescene

I was stuck on repeat yesterday and I kept listening to MF DOOM One Beer and Wiz Khalifa Visons on my itunes. Both of these songs sampled a track called “Huit Octobre 1971” By a band called Cortex. Cortex. I wasnt able to find much info about the band itself but I know its french, and its funky. The melodies are haunting and the rhythms are crazy. Im sure you will enjoy it. Found a link to the whole album on RAPPAMELO. Check a sample here.
