Although I didn’t get a chance to go down to Miami to attend any of the Winter Music Conference parties this year, my homie Pancho, aka DJ Manuvers, kept me updated via his Facebook. Gilles Peterson, ?uestlove and Aloe Blacc were among some of the artists that he saw that made me most jealous. It looked like a hella good time, and I wish I could have been of a part of it. Oh well, there’s always next year…
On that note, Manuvers hooked it up with this dope 80-minute Champion Sound mix. Not quite like being there, but it’s a hell of a consolation prize.
Just in case you don’t already know, Champion Sound is a Miami-based DJ collective that holds a weekly party every Wednesday at the Electric Pickle in Miami. If you’re a Miami resident, or you’re just stopping through on a Wednesday, you should definitely check out Champion Sound for one of the best weekly hip hop/soul/disco/funk nights in town – held down by DJs A-Train, Manuvers, Sire Esq., and Lumin, and featuring the occasional heavyweight guest DJ.
Check the four-part mix, presented in 20-minute sets from each of the Champion Sound DJs, below. Peep the Champion Sound blog for the tracklisting.
There’s a mini DJ collective out of Miami called Champion Sound comprised of the homie Sire Esquire, Mr. Brown and A-Train. They’re all purveyors of classic soul x hip-hop x funk and just put out their first podcast of sorts featuring really good old school and new school jams that make you feel good. They’re calling it Champion Sound Radio and it’s fire! They’ve got some Jackson 5 remixed by Kenny Dope, some Q-Tip and Mos Def, People Under the Stairs, and lot of other gems that will leave a smile on your face. You know how if you’re feeling sick, you can eat a bowl of pho and it will make you feel better. This mix has the same effect. You can stream the entire thing and download it over here.
Speaking of People Under the Stairs, has anybody seen their new video. This joint is so old school and hilarious that it hurts. Props to any hip-hoppers willing to throw on leisure suits and rock out.
