I love music.

Thousands of great new songs are being released each day as we speak & we are lucky enough to live in such times, where almost all of it is available to us, literally at the tip of our fingers. To offer some sort of navigation through the overwhelming amount of tunes, I’ve decided to take the time to reflect & appreciate, take a look back to what’s been put out there over the past month. By the means of a selection of fresh releases, well-curated mixtapes and special treats, here goes the monthly musical wrap-up.

You’ve found yourself in the little corner of the internet, where I like to shine a spotlight on classic albums, from a musical and cultural perspective, that I consider highly essential and always in some way relevant to the current month. Sometimes regularly, sometimes less so. Nevertheless, always with love.

‘I Want You’ cover

Today we celebrate the 45th anniversary of the key soul album of the 70’s. The ‘I Want You’ album by some of the most musically creative minds ever, Marvin Gaye. It’s a conceptual record that takes you on a sensual 11-track, 40-minute long ride, each track providing a different attitude…

Few hip-hop groups have been able to craft a sound as instantly recognizable as Gang Starr. Guru’s smooth baritone and the beats Premo handcrafted using samples and his signature bounce have left a strong impact in the history of hip hop. March 8th marks the 27-year anniversary of my favorite Gang Starr album ‘Hard To Earn’, an album that I hold very dear to my heart. It took this particular record to introduce me, personally, to the abundant catalogue of these two hip hop heavy hitters. On top of that, half of this legendary hip hop duo, DJ Premier, has…
