What you think, what you believe, what you prefer, what you won't put up with ... From something as simple as the music you enjoy to something as profound as your feelings about religion or having children, sooner or later someone's going to press you to explain yourself. Should you feel obliged to satisfy them? There was a time when polite deflection was enough but apparently, where we are now, it seems each one of us must choose a side. I wish for you the courage, confidence and inner peace to make your stand. Let this collection soothe and strengthen you, courtesy of contributions from Grace Kelly, Beady Belle, Emancipator, Tycho, The Warheads, and many more, opening with the latest by Irresistible Force from the new release, Kira Kira -- for which, much thanks to Robin.

The range of players in this set runs from the way-back sound of Coleman Hawkins, Ethiopia's Tezetaye Atchi Lidj, and James Carter thru some of today's practitioners -- Kirk Degiorgio, Urban Chill, Future by Design, and Jazzanova, to name a few. Drop in and spend an hour whenever you need to replenish your own bright energy ... we’ll save a seat for you.

In the United States, the right to petition is guaranteed by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, which specifically prohibits Congress from abridging "the right of the people...to petition the Government for a redress of grievances". As this particular July 4th rolls around it seems especially appropriate to keep those rights in mind while spending your holiday (if it *is* a holiday for you) in safe and happy celebration; trust in JAH and keep your powder dry. Old friends and new talent keeping you company include Thievery Corp., Bill Laswell, Noiseshaper, Martha Velez, several from the Dubmatix group of artists including the Resonators and AMJ Meets RSD, plus Zephaniah from the Handsworth Explosion collection, courtesy of Sugar Shack Records.

Well. The answers (depending on who you ask) are various and complex, but virtually everyone will end up telling you That's Just The Way It Is. They may point to 'human nature' or they may blame capitalism or any of the other isms that drive politics and the economy all over the world ... I doubt you will find the kind of agreement about causes that would leave you feeling convinced. Here's my suggestion: turn away from trying to understand the "we" question, and just focus on the one thing you can actually influence: yourself. Why can't I relax? Why can't I be my best self more often? Why can't I live together with other people in peace and understanding? Lighting the way: Alex Cortiz, Blackfish, Deep Dive Corp., Kaya Project, and more.

In fact, that reminder might be even more important in places where the last of winter weather is still clinging. Take heart: spring is settling in and the warmth is making promises you'll soon benefit from, promises about sandals, shorts and swimsuits. My suggestion would be that you mix yourself a tropical cocktail, sit in a sunbeam, pop in your earbuds, and give your mind a mini-vacation. This tropical chill jam features music from Bonobo's newest release along with tracks from Afterlife, Timewarp inc, Tycho & Rob Garza of Thievery Corp, and more

Spend an hour with me with a smile on your face and the belief in your heart that – whether we are talking about romance, politics, our personal finances or our Weight Watchers check-in, it doesn't all have to end in tears. It still may -- of course! But it doesn't HAVE to, and that's the light we're heading toward atm ... If you need your spirits lifted, come along with me. Performances this time from Parra for Cuva, Junge Junge, Felix Jaehn, Sam Feldt, New Order, Blank and Jones, Afterlife, and more.

I hear they had a little spring up in NYC until it got crowded-out with a new snow storm... If you can't depend on the weather, then you'll have to let the music warm you up. Late 2016 brought plenty of new roots music, including offerings from Vibronics / Conscious Sounds, Morgan Heritage, AMJ Meets RSD, Jim the Boss, The Hempolics, and the Zion Train remix album Versions -- big up to the Dubmatix crew for keeping me connected! I also checked the crate, so you'll hear UB40, Thievery Corporation, Djosos Krost, Dubblestandart, Resonators & My Neighbor Is. Light it up and stay warm!
