San Francisco saxophonist Prasant Radhakrishnan uses his instrument to play Indian classical music so while the sax is not an instrument commonly known within the music, there are musicians like Kadri Gopalnath and Aditya Viswanathan who have taken their love of the saxophone to new and wonderful places. Had John Coltrane lived, it would have been interesting to have heard him collaborate with Gopalpath or Viswanathan. Today, you can get familiar with Radhakrishnan with the release of a new album called Meditations: Ragas on Saxophone Vol. 2, the sequel to his 2011 album and he has allowed a free download of “Gowrimanohari”

James Brown is easily one of the most sampled artists of all time and one of his songs is examined, sliced, chops, and flipped into a new mix, courtesy of DJ Platurn.

It’s a zesty rap track that will make you dance and do figure eights, don’t be afraid.
JSOUL has released a new EP and not only that, it’s for free. These are what I would like to consider bite-side nuggets, which may be a hint that much more will be released this year.

He’s all about “clean blends” according to this press releases and the “he” I speak of is King Faro, who has taken Migos’ “Hit Em” and turned it towards his way in the form of a remix.
