OK, something different for this Thursday morning! So the old’s are my mother and father, off course and I do have what is left of their old record collection plus seems we are all staying at home right now, it might be a good time listen to all these?

I’m borrowing/stealing this cool idea from a blog/blogger: Bitchfork subtitled still not as bitchy as Pitchfork, which is funny/true! Bitchfork is linked here and her name is Keelin Billue who’s writing/blogging from Chicago. It’s called Vinyl Days so I’ve re-named my inspired post but here’s the last Vinyl Days post linked here or the tag linked here, please do check out Bitchfork blog because she’s got great taste in music and total wicked blogger!

A little background to begin: all these are begin pulled out of a big purple painted wooden box in the corner of my living room, straight…

Esteemed Bass + Jazz Rap Playlists

I recently read a study that found bass heavy music boosts feelings of empowerment and confidence. The study data is likely over 6 years old, and there may be updated research on the topic (feel free to share in the comments if there is).

I think when most younger people hear “bass heavy”, they think of EDM music. If, like me, EDM is not your cup of tea,  have made a playlist and found a Spotify playlist that offer some bass alternatives.

ESTEEMED BASS (by yours truly)

This is a multi genre playlist with songs from Jaco Pastorius, Herbie Hancock, Pink Floyd, Primus, Labi Siffre and many others.

JAZZ RAP (by Spotify)

Spotify has some excellent compilation playlists. I did not know jazz rap was an actual genre (I’m honestly surprised the name is both so on the nose and also sort of a catch all for any hip hop that has jazz in the background? I’m still sorting it out), but to me, every artist and song in this genre is excellent. Most of the artists and songs were big in the 80s-90s (Digable Planets, The Pharcyde, A Tribe Called Quest, and others), but there are a fewer newer artists (most notably one of my favorite gemini men Kendrick Lamar, MF DOOM, and Anderson. Paak).

This is my favorite song from that list:

The track is a stunner, and the backstory makes it even more interesting.

So, I’m not sure where any of you are at in your life, but if you need a boost, hit dat bass.
