3.01.14 Episode 254: Al Jackson, Shiva, and Kronika

 

Soundwaves_3.1_new

One of my favorite things about hosting a weekly radio show is hearing new sounds each and every week. This episode is jam packed with new tunes, future sounds and heartbreaking soul.

Al Jackson, local Los Angeles legend, kicked the show off and played a very soulful set which included songs from Erykah Badu, Dwele and Dil Jackson. Catch up with Al Jackson on Facebook and Twitter and be sure to check out his podcast as well.

Up to bat after Al Jackson we had Soulection selector Kronika who showed up early and stayed late (our favorite kind of guest). She stepped up and dropped tracks from Slum Village, Busta Rhymes, and Big Pun and had the whole studio bumpin’ until the end of her set. Step your social media bars up and follow Kronika on Soundcloud, Twitter, and Facebook. And … In case you have been living under a rock, follow what the good folks over at Soulection are doing.

Closing out the show we had a very special guest mix from the lovely Shiva. She was kind enough to submit an exclusive mix filled with future bass sounds and smooth juke edits. Catch up with Shiva on Twitter, Facebook, and Soundcloud.
