Feeling a bit nostalgic this week about the old acid jazz days so I started it out with some a bit of old Canadian acid jazz goodness with bit of new jazz goodness courtesy of badbadnotgood. Does anyone out there remember 90’s outfit Bass is Base? The trio, consisting of Ivan Santilly, Chin Injeti and MC Mystic, really only had one hit (linked above), but I do recall not minding the album as a whole. I’ve been following the musical output of Ivana Santilli on again and off again throughout the years and have always enjoyed it. She’s apparently working on an album slated to release this year. Can’t wait. Chin Injeti meanwhile has a new album out and we’ve got it at CJSW, which is sort of what set off this whole trip down memory lane. He’s also been doing quite a bit of production apparently (including work with eminem, pink and madchild), but I hadn’t really been aware of it. His new album is a bit meh imho, but there’s a couple of decent tracks on it. Speaking of things I was not aware of — It’s funny, I only just realized while watching the video that MC Mystic is actually Roger Mooking, and is currently on the food network doing his thing.

Anyways after the acid jazz stuff, we rolled into a few tracks of hip hop featuring great female singers before spending a bit of time with Jeru the Damaja tracks. Then we slowly wound things up for the end of the show.
