praise poems and warmth, always search for the new land.
that's what soulsearching is all about. you can't buy it. YCBI.

a little selection of new and old out of my box, so much good music out there!
music from one of the best compilations of the year called "praise poems" (tramp records),
a long overdue replay of that lee morgan TUNE, then into the new with flako, lapalux,
hiatus kaiyote (more soon from their forthcoming album "choose your weapon"), a world premiere
of a new felix laband joint, 20 years of compost this year, right on! rich spaven vs. mala, like a part two of that sublime
song, brilliant jazz something by frankfurts very own contrast trio and more by daymé arocena into a cut from the
beautiful album by fabiano do nascimento.

dos palos & faze actions robin lee delivering just the right vibes with his mixtape.
can't wait to hear more dos palos stuff, they are working on a full length for nunorthern soul,
and well, you know, faze action always welcome, delivering the goods over all those years.
thanks a lot robin lee and phil cooper !

spring is here - about time for a soulpatrol box 120, and that's up next week.
guestmixes by corrado bucci and dj day forthcoming soon as well.

enjoy ! michael
