Here's a dope "soulful disco mix" the homie Matthew Africa just posted.

http://matthewafrica.blogspot.com/2009/09/soulful-disco-mix.html

Yeah, that Lee Fields album is really good too. Here's an interview I did with Lee recently: http://nerdtorious.com/2009/06/15/his-world-finally-interview-with-lee-fields/

AirTrees: I think that's pretty much all the dope stuff Marion Black did. And while it's not old, peep that Mayer Hawthorne when it comes out. It's really good. A guy named Shawn Lee put out a dope soul album recently too.

I just peeped that Lee Fields on iTunes, and if sharon jones was a guy, she would sound like this.

Gonna check out the mix you posted DM. BTW saw Mayer Hawthorne, PBW, and Prince Paul on Valentines Day in LA. My girl loves PBW now.

Unrelated, but Fela Kuti rocks my fucking face off. God damn 15 minute songs and they just get more energetic as they go. Horns are so nasty, all of them.

Peep Tony Allen's work out. He's the amazing drummer who plays on those 15-minute + tracks. And check this out too if you're digging the afrobeat stuff: http://www.daptonerecords.com/pax_nicholas.html

I like new stuff that sounds old. Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings style.

These guys are VERY hit or miss, but have some excellent songs.
