The_Chola_Back_To_The_Lounge_2009_060909


Okay, it is time to bring things back home and slow the tempo down some again. This month I bring us “Back to The Lounge” with some great samba, bossanova, some awesome covers, and overall, just a loungey feel. Pour a martini and take a load off, it is time to chill out.

I am planning a trip to Berlin in the very near future and would love some recommendations of lounges, bars, clubs, and record stores to visit with a jazz, downtempo, or lounge, influence. If any of my listeners from Germany have some insight, please email me at chola @ podomatic.com. Thanks! 🙂

Jazz Steppin’ 2009 05-01-09

The_Chola_Jazz_Steppin_2009_050109

 So this month I decided it was time to finally follow up 2007’s Jazz Steppin’ episode with another dose of chilled out drum and bass. Jazz Steppin’ is really about kicking up the tempo a bit but still maintaining a chilled out vibe. Lots of jazz, r&b, samba, and funk combined with intelligent drum and bass music.

A lot of Drum n Bass is hard and edgy these days. It seems that you really have to dig to find the jazzier stuff which is a real shame. However, spend some time digging and you will stumble across some great artists still producing music with a softer, more “musical” sound. Heavy DNB is fine for doing some serious “dancing” or for working out. However, the jazzier stuff is what I want for sofa surfing and just chilling out. 😉

Here is this month’s tracklist…

01. Galapago- La Maquina y Yo
02. Sardi– Primavera
03. Zuco 103– Volta (Bossacucanova Remix)
04. Dan Marshall– Fools Paradise
05. The Funktastics– Crocodile Skin
06. Bazeado– Segunda Feira (Bungle Remix)
07. Mutt– She Likes It
08. Shapeshifter– Equinox
09. The Amalgamation Of Soundz– 63rd Suite
10. Komatic– Untold Stories
11. Brother– Ever After
12. Phat Playaz– Down Town
13. Madmen & Poets– Afraid Of Jazz
15. Ror-Shak- Lisa’s Song ft. Lisa Shaw

Urban Cocktail Hour 2009 02-10-09

 

The_Chola_Urban_Cocktail_Hour_2009_021009

Well I hate to say it… it is unfortunate… but the fact of the matter is that every podcaster comes to a point where he has a creative block. Moments become hours, hours become days, days become weeks… etc, etc, etc.

As an avid podcast subscriber, I have always hated when a DJ misses a show… don’t they know that we are waiting, patiently waiting, to listen to what they will bring us next? I hate when they do that… oh wait, I am guilty of just that! I am indeed sorry.

I did not post a podcast in January, the very month that the Chill with the Chola podcast turned two years old. I will try to make up for that throughout the year, posting an extra episode here or there if possible, or even better, finding more guest DJ’s to produce mid month episodes.

I finally found my muse after booking a trip to Chicago this coming weekend… I cannot wait! I am headed up to Chicago to celebrate Valentine’s Day with the girl that I love. To be in one of my favorite cities with my favorite person excites me to no end. A city full of romance, UNBELIEVABLE food, scenery, jazz/ blues, etc… I just cannot wait!

This month I have decided to revisit a classic “Chill with the Chola” idea… the Urban Cocktail Hour, inspired by the trip that I am about to make to one of this nation’s finest cities. The Urban Cocktail Hour is about celebrating the music inspired by the big city… jazz, funk, lounge, downtempo, jazzy hip hop… it is all here. If this set does not get your head bobbin,’ I am not sure what will. I hope that you will enjoy this month’s podcast with your favorite libations.

I would like to dedicate one of the most interesting, unconventional, and beautiful pieces of music in this month’s set (Jazzanova’s “Little Bird”) to my own little bird. XO.

Here is this month’s tracklist…

01. Funk Off– Magic Touch
02. Katalyst– All You’ve Got (Ft. Hau, Ru C.L., Yungun)
03. Fort Knox Five– Sao Funky (Parts 1 & 2)
04. Mario Biondi– This Is What You Are (Dim’s Hipster Jazz)
05. Khromozomes & Kristin Mainhart– Another Girl
06. Kero One– In All The Wrong Places
07. Roberto Roena– Take Five (Nicola Conte Remix)
08. The Apples– Killing (45 Mix)
09. Nitin Sawhney– Days of Fire (Ft. Natty)
10. Jazzanova– Little Bird (ft. Jose James)
11. The Stance Brothers– Capricorn
12. The Bird And The Bee– Polite Dance Song
13. Kenichiro Nishihara– From Time To Time (ft. Gregg Green)

And by the way… a big phat tuba bassline with a tenor sax solo just makes me want to get down!1 minute 46 seconds… that sh!t gets the f@ck down! I just thought that you should know that 🙂
