Following the release of his “Use It” video, Bobby Saint bares his soul for 1833.
Remy Shand – “Take A Message”
The phenomenal one man band Remy Shand. Every lick in this record is 100% every time—let the air be filled with that Remy Magic.
Musiq Soulchild – “L’ Is Gone”
For me, a hidden gem. The flow, push, pull, and smoke in the air, the way the lyrics and storytelling flow…
Bilal – “Reminisce”
One of my fave voices out there, period. I just love how his voice is like some soul creature from another planet.
D’Angelo – “Untitled (How Does It Feel)”
It’s the evolution and storytelling simply by mood that gets me every time with this record…. from foreplay to the mountain top, it’s ear candy for the emotional navigation.
Nikka Costa – “Like A Feather”
This is one of the records that got me in the producing and songwriting driver’s seat. Early Mark Ronson and Justin Stanley, the way they were making things funky just put the stars in my eyes… and Nikka on vocals, GOD DAMN!
James Brown – “The Boss”
Stank face applied always as this song comes on. When I grow up, I want to make people apply stank face.
Raphael Saadiq – “Charlie Ray”
Just sit by the campfire and let Uncle Raphael tell you a story.
Way of the Eagle – “Rattlesnake”
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Way Of The Eagle! Super talented. This song I have always loved because of the imagery it conjures in the mind. It’s the make your own mind-movie record.
Allen Stone – “Freezer Burn”
Not to be biased as I’m a co writer on this song, but i can never forget Allen walking in with this concept “Freezer Burn”. For me, it was such a cool take on a classic theme… enjoy the lyrics and epic Stone performance on this one.
The Isley Brothers – “Shout”
Let’s just break all the song arrangement rules with the Isley brothers… always wished I was a fly on the wall when they were creating this masterpiece. The energy that the captured in the vocal performance and groove is one of legend… all I can say is “when I grow up” 🙂
