Shan Frenzie chats with Keith about his early days working with super producer Teddy Riley, his vast discography, how he wrote the first controversially explicit love ballads, and how he developed one of the silkiest voices in the industry.
A special bass heavy episode with a rare excursion into drum & bass, ragga, and dancehall - featuring new releases from Goldie, Royalston, Stylo G, DJ Vadim, Joseph Cotton, Goldlink and a bunch more.. and of course done with that usual Groove Therapy flare. It's all about the blends..
The late eighties is my favourite vintage of Hip Hop. It's that pre golden era where producers still sampled with naivety, and the emcees bellowed with a mixture of rhythm and style. In this episode I go in on this era for a good hour or so. But it's not all about Hip Hop. This episode kicks off with some classic funk breakbeats. I take a trip to Brazil, and then land firmly in the discotheque. I even find time to drop a couple of new releases from Goldlink, Husky of Random Soul, Marcel Vogel, and Perth vocalist Kita Alexander.
I had a chat wit Brad Baloo from The Nextmen a few days ago, ahead of his Sydney performance.
Keeping things all House and Disco for this episode, with a heap of classic material that is bound to have you jumping around. It's not all oldschool joints though - There's a stack of new releases sprinkled throughout featuring a brand new Soul Clap track remixed by Hot Toddy, a killer club joint from Mason on the Sweat It Out label, and we get techy with Stefan Braatz and Teddy Douglas.
Catching up on some recent new releases - Featuring the undisputed queen of modern soul Mary J Blige, which melds perfectly into a track off the new Grand Puba album. It's great to see those two talents back to back again. Some killer dancehall styles coming out strong from Squeeze Tarlea (possible contender for my song of the week), and The Nextmen (Another contentder for song of the week) . Nineties underground rapper Prince Powerule makes a welcome return after so many years - and shows that classic Hip Hop is not dead.
