Chopin - Nocturne op.9 No.2



To add to my last post, this particular "Nocturnes" piece by Chopin is the greatest of all. MadChange your mood for the better with the press of a button.

Chopin - Complete Nocturnes (Brigitte Engerer)



I don't post too much classical but it is not even arguable that the piano is one of the most beautiful sounding instruments man has ever created. Combine that with Chopin's masterpiece "nocturnes" and you have yourself an open heart and a calming sense about everything. I will leave this quote from the youtube page to arcticulte that more: "In times of great doubt or heartbreak, this is probably one of the most comforting pieces you can listen to. It's easy to divert attention away from yourself, but this piece makes that nearly impossible."

Susumu Yokota - Grinning Cat (2001) Full Album



I just found out Susuma Yokota passed away a year ago at only 54 years old. I'm very saddened to hear will will never grace us with new music again. He'll always be in my secret music drawer where i keep my secret music knowledge that I don't share with many others. Ambient, experimental and beautiful, his music lives on. This album, Grinning Cat, is a great soundtrack for a rainy day or simply improving the quality of your life.

Radical Man - Prince



RIP to Prince who [mad]changed the game in so many ways and was just plain better than his contemporaries in so many ways. I love the message in this unknown cut off a Spike Lee movie soundtrack. Prince, you will always be a radical man.

DangerDoom (Danger Mouse & MF DOOM) - Crosshairs



This beat is sampled from Thoughtful Popper off Don Harper's Strings Go Pop / Brass & String Bag Library LP . It's the holy grail for DangerDoom fans. Extremely rare. This Dangerdoom LP is one of those LPs that seems to eternally get better the more times you listen to it. MF Doom, one of the best to ever do it. 

Don Harper - Thoughtful Popper (1971)



This is Thoughtful Popper off Don Harper's Strings Go Pop / Brass & String Bag Library LP . It's the holy grail for DangerDoom fans. Extremely rare.

Sampled by Dangermouse on the track Crosshairs which I will post next so you can hear the magic.

"Black Is Back" Sir Kahil EL Zabar



Kahil El Zabar is in Austin, TX tonight with the show surely being under attended. He has worked with so many legends and you see a glimpse of his simple genius here. He gets much more complex but jazz is about the full spectrum.

Wah Wah Watson - Goo Goo Wah Wah - 1976 [Funk]



This some deeply filthy funk right here.

Los Destellos - Pasión Oriental



Found a playlist of 622 songs on youtube called: CUMBIA psychedelic PERU. It's epic. Psychedelic Cumbia might be the greatest Latin music, shame the world knows very little of it.
