Afro Latin Hip Sway

My latest mix CD is out if anyone is interested. This one is definitely more uptempo and for people who generally love to move to music. Its a mixture of deep house (more soulful than traditional house), nu jazz (more modern percussion than traditional jazz), broken beat (nontraditional percussion patterns), and Afro-beat (African soul meets James Brown funky). The reason I made this mix CD was to promote myself as an artist (, but also to promote some very wonderful music that just has not gotten the exposure that I believe it deserves. I have a lot of faith in my taste in music so I look at this latest CD as a service...after listening to thousands of records, I bring the cream of the crop to the enthusiast who has the taste of a connoisseur, if not quite the time. Finally, its a seamlessly blending sound collage which connects it to hip hop which started the whole deejay phenomenon. Its meant to be consumed as a whole, but here is playlist none the less...
