In an effort to further explore the myriad and "Komplicated" musical tastes of the modern "post-Black" denizens of the world, we present Spin City, which will feature recommendations from some of the world’s finest DJs, Joining resident turntablist DJ Jedi, we're proud to present the musical musings of Brutha Gimel (also known as Gimel Hooper), a double threat who not only is well known for his skills on the wheels, but also as a spoken word artist of considerable renown and one of the co-founders of LA's long-running venue Da Poetry Lounge. After missing his second slot, we now present Gimel's favorites for this week …
My first list of songs are as follows:
- "Quicksand," J*Davey
This song is eclectic and fresh and I just love the bounce plus it features my pal Def Sound.
- "Colors," THURZ
One of LA's finest upcoming emcees delivers a strong club bounce and energy.
- "Love Cliche'" (J Boogie remix), Soulstice
This little dub style remix is just what groove heads love to step to.
- "Ghetto Dreams," Common feat. Nas
You already know these two emcees gon' deliver the heat for the fans and this co-laboration is has the street appeal the put them both on. (NOTE: Featured on #musicmonday July 4th)
- "Dedication to my Ex, "Lloyd feat. Andre 3000 & Lil Wayne
This joint has that 3000 signature soul sound that make me wanna dance when I play it.
You'll likely be able to check Brutha Gimel out tonight at Da Poetry Lounge.
Barring unforeseen challenges, Brutha Gimel's Spin City should be waiting for you, right here on Komplicated.com, every Tuesday afternoon.
