TAPE DECK SHUFFLE
The playlist of our favourite songs this week. 'Side A' features some latest cuts, while the classics make the 'B Side'.
RAPHAEL SAADIQ-JUST DON'T: Just do press play on this cool track off Ray, Ray's latest 'Stone Rollin' classic.
CAM'RON & VADO-THEY DON'T LIKE YOU: But we like this new Dipset classic and all it's throwback 80's flavour and lyrical, flowing flair.
JIM JONES Feat ASHANTI-CHANGING THE LOCKS: Let's not forget this Dipset king and Murder Inc queens latest. The key to this collaboration is it's classic mix of grimy hip-hop and radio friendly R&B.
MUSIQ SOULCHILD-THEANSWERISYES: Never question this mans talent. Right now no one has got anything on his smooth, Summer sound. Play it loud.
TREY SONGZ Feat DRAKE-UNUSUAL: Still going strong, Trey's songs are rocking from the club to the car and Toronto's finest, rap man of the moment Drake rides shotgun and returns the favour for his 'Successful' run.
THE DIPLOMATS-DIPSET ANTHEM: With new records from Jim Jones, Cam'ron and Vado out now and their Diplomats 'Diplomatic Immunity' album our 'Album Select Of The Week' let's ride with this anthem.
THE COMMODORES-NIGHTSHIFT: It doesn't get more classic however then soul or Lionel Richie's old boys who do Jackie Robinson, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jnr so proud.
NORAH JONES-SUNRISE: Right now the cool, classic vocals of the beautiful Norah Jones are blessing the new Dangermouse project 'Rome'. So what better then the sweet lulling 'Oooh's' she wrote for 'Sunrise' to welcome in the forthcoming Summer.
THE WHITE STRIPES-JOLENE: Jack White also lends his unique vocals to 'Rome' but this isn't the first-time he has made a classic his own. As him and Meg take Dolly Parton's song and man.
JOHNNY CASH-CRY, CRY, CRY: If your a little bit country then you know that Cash rules everything so here's Johnny with a classic that Norah Jones herself covered live on her last L.P. 'The Fall'. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
