I was surprised that it was still being hosted on the site I uploaded it to 14 years ago, so after all these years I decided to post it here.
I called it “User Friendly Soul” as it was a selection of tracks I grew up on , gifted by some remarkable DJ’s or discovered around the time as were getting away from accessing our music on CD’s and were primary using other devices like Ipods andIrivers. Keep in mind this before the first Iphone was released.
The introduction of the mix starts off with an original track I produced using Sony Acid 2.0 with a sample from a voicemail from a Tech Recruiter , excerpts from a radio interview and a snippet that says What’s a “Nubian”? said by the character Banky from 1997 film Chasing Amy written and directed by Kevin Smith.
I recently remastered the bit rate and extended the original running time by adding an addition 40 minutes of music. User Friendly Soul served as the soundtrack for one of the episodes for season 1 of theArt Now After Hoursseries of events in 2019.
It contains a range of songs from artists Ernie Hines, Central Line, Cymande, Davis Porter, DeBarge, Heath Brothers, Kaytranda, Randy Crawford, The Jackson Five, Curtis Mayfield, Steely Dan, Marvin Gaye, Gil Scott-Heron, Roy Ayers, Marvin Gaye, Sylvia Stripling, Fela Kuti, De La Soul, Erykah Badu and many more.
Please listen and enjoy with a whisky, a cigar , cleaning or just chilling out.
