Future Classic: Ego Ella May “Zero”

I always search for new artists that go into the “Future-soul / Neo-soul” category or whatever you want to call it these days. Albums by artists like Jesse Boykins III or Fatima finish in my top 5 every year and their LP’s end up being on constant rotation in my …

Future Classic: Cult Mountain “Cult Mountain EP”

Very often when I’m just getting ready to record the monthly MIMS Radio show, after a couple days of absolutely frantic music research, I look at all the pieces i’ve collected for the show and lay them all out on the table like 200 puzzle pieces. One of the last …

Future Classic: Reginald Omas Mamode IV “Sunshine/Moneymaker”

Honest to goodness, this new release by South London’s Reginald Omas Mamode IV on Five Easy Pieces (the label who also just released the new Flako LP) is blissfully hypnotic right from the start. I’m still stunned by “Sunshine” and “Moneymaker”. Reminiscent of RAMP’s seminal “Come Into Knowledge” album, it channels that pure …

Future Classic: M.M (Mat/Matix) “Loon Squad”

Back at it from a long hiatus, I’ve noticed that I haven’t wrote an article since the show was blessed by a new intro, custom made by my homie Temu. It’s an ode to Lakeside’s fabulous “Fantastic Voyage” with Temu’s special spices sprinkled all over. Now, for this week’s featured …

Future Classic: THEESatisfaction “EarthEE”

For all of the over classification of sub-sub genres, isn’t it frustrating when there is a scene out there that truly deserves a proper label but doesn’t have one. Future or Next-Level Soul? Indie, Alternative or Abstract R&B? We’re talking about the alternative & slightly more abstract approach to Soul …
