Happy Saturday, my fellow loungers!
The sun is shining. The temperature is getting hot!
I'd say it's time to chill!
Thank you all so much for checking in this, and every week. Its nice to know this music has a great audience.
So he spoke and you listened! Jazzy James Jr. submitted "a little jazz for his peeps" and you responded...and we here at the station did as well. Sugar and Spice has shot to number one this week! Congrats to James!
As DJ Maretimo slips to number three, that woman of chilled jazz, Stephanie Sante, slides in ahead of him to the number two spot! Congrats Stephanie!
Also notable is the meteoric rise of Alex Cortiz's Zooming In, as it positions itself at numnber four. There's a fan base of his here at the station as well as out there that keeps him moving up.
Got some new music in this week, surprisingly from three jazzhop/chillhop artists that are helping to promote this creative new subgenre of hip hop. I've always thought that the turntablists who create the melody for rap artists to spread their words over could very well break out on their own. Described in an oxymoronic way as "instrumental rap", they're sampled jazz and easy listening sounds could easily have an audience with us loungers. Listen with open ears and see if you can't appreciate the street melodies of these creative DJ's.
I must give a shoutout to my good friend in Prague, Vitty Masciale, who has joined me in seeking out some of these artists, including C Y G N & Sophie Meiers. Please tune in and listen for some wonderful new sounds, combining sampled jazz and chillout as well as film dialogue. Check out the San Francisco artist known only as .anxious.
Enjoy your weekend, everyone! Thanks for the support! Thanks for your comments, like Niko from Greece, who listens on the Radio Planet page. Always great to hear from you.
