2 & 2

 I got a nice promo package in the mail last week from the good folks at Cultures of Soul that I wanted to share with y'all. They really outdid themselves with this one. It was hard to choose what to post out of the mass amount of records they sent, but here's a couple that stood out.

Most of you are probably familiar with Tommy Stewart ("Bump & Hustle") and some of you might already be up on this, but Cultures of Soul recently released a 2XLP of his work as well as some edits by Al Kent called Disco Love Affair. Definitely worth picking up (and you can do that right chea). Al Kent's edit of "Beyond Love" and the Stevo joints are worth the price alone.

They also sent their reissue of the amazing double A side 7" by The Fabulous Fugitives and Their Review. Since I probably won't find an OG of this any time soon, this will more than do until then. You can cop this at the same link above.

In other news, my man The Reflex sent over some chunes a few weeks ago and one of those was BS&T's cover of "Spinning Wheel". When I was a wee yoot coming up (ie. this era) this was one of the first records I pulled from mom's crates and tried to flip. Nothing much came of it, but what The Reflex did is everything I would have done. Straight ahead b-boy business. Be sure to check him out and grab some free edits and exclusives on his Soundcloud page.

LAST but not least - next Thursday, Nov. 15th, Jeremy Sole (KCRW/Afro Funké/theLIFT) returns for his monthly throw down at ¡Reunión! (Ace Hotel | PSP). If you're in town be sure and stop by. Always good vibes & always free.
