Time is running. It is time for a new mix with good music with soul, funk, jazz and beyond. An eclectic selection of new music, percussion tracks, lost but not forgotten rare songs. And there is the new song in two versions by Chic feat. Nile Rodgers in the mix. Join me into the world of sounds.
We starting the journey in New Orleans. JD McPherson released a new album and one of his most icons in music has been Fats Domino. EPHEMERALS are a London based soul team featuring an all star cast of musicians. Chassol is a really amazing french composer. He is mixing and sampling different styles to a wonderful world music melange. Sarah Vaughan sings about the mystery of man. What a voice. Tuscan beat maker C. Crisci, a.k.a Clap! Clap! bringing you Afro-trappism’ sampling tribes. Then you can listen to new songs from Curtis Harding, Hanni El Khatib, Belle and Sebastian, Gregory Porter, Antonio Sanchez, D’Angelo from his masterpiece “Black Messiah”, the wonderful Melanie De Biasio and Kate Tempest and many, many more.
Then you find a lot of songs with percussion. The reason why I selected the songs is simple: the amazing soundtrack from the movie “Birdman”. Finally Nile Rodgers released yesterday the new song “I´ll Be There”. But I selected for the mix the funky and groovy instrumental version with the Martinez Bros..
Now let the music do the talking and let the good times roll.
Stay tuned. Listen. Relax, Enjoy!

You find the vocal version from Chic feat. Nile Rodgers on his Facebook-Account.
Nile Rodgers: “#WorldPremiere!! #IllBeThere is a moving concept for me about decisions we make in life. We’ve tried to capture all the nuances in the full length video and still keep it fun. Karlie Kloss connects the past and present. She sees the original group (who plays this track) on Soul Train. She, visualizes the past looking at old school vinyl – then gets dressed and goes out to a current party to meet up with Stephen Galloway and the current #CHIC lineup happens to be playing live. I’m very thankful to be debuting it exclusively w Music on Facebook to the world. Here it is. I hope you like it.”
