Tina & Ike – Nutbush City Limits

by on Feb.19, 2012, under Records

[youtube id=”ipOz_k9zvzo”]

Tina belts out tells about her old hometown Nutbush, TN over the fuzzed out guitar rifts and spacey synths laid down by Ike. Although they aint got “N0 Whiskey For Sale” in Nutbush, off of Highway Nineteen they know how to cook up one Extra Saucy and Soulful Diva.

Wendy Rene – Bar-B-Q

by on Dec.29, 2011, under Records

[youtube id=”drn7Q8Grb_s”]

Wendy Rene almost hopped on the same plane that took Otis Redding’s life along with several members from the Bar-Kays in 1967. But some time before that, let’s say, back in 1964 this little piece of soul…food came off the grill and is still delicious to hear today.

Dance Party for the Soul – A Benefit for Jonathan Toubin

by on Dec.15, 2011, under Events

Dance Party for the Soul
A Benefit for Jonathan Toubin

{New York Night Train / Soul Clap Dance-Off / Bellaire HS Alum}

Facebook Event Link

Join us at Grand Prize Bar {upstairs} from 9 pm -2 am. NO COVER! Cash raffle! Some of the best DJs in town will be spinning tunes guaranteed to keep you on your feet to help out a friend in need.

  • Ceeplus Bad Knives
  • The Psychedelic Sex Panther
  • Mr. Castillo
  • Stagger Lee
  • and friends

YOU are invited to come dance the night away this Saturday!
The Skinny – Here is the headline from last week: “New York D.J. Jon Toubin in critical condition after being run over by a cab in Portland hotel room.”

Click on the link below to get the whole story:


He is now in critical condition, and benefits in his honor are popping up all over the country. We will raise money with a cash raffle Saturday night! You are also invited to donate via Paypal to ihearttoubin@gmail.com to benefit his recovery. At the very least, positive thoughts and prayers for quick recovery are extremely helpful, too.

In case you aren’t up to speed – Jon Toubin is a Houston native. This Bellaire High School alum has taken the 45rpm dance party to a whole new level conceptually, culturally, and commercially. Though known for “maximum rock and soul” dance club sets and multi-media “Happenings,” his Soul Clap and Dance-Off party have put Mr. Toubin on the map as a soul man and left a huge footprint on contemporary urban nightlife. Working over 600 gigs the last two years, Mr. Jonathan Toubin has managed to keep one boot in the counter-culture from which he emerged (punk bars, DIY basements, loft parties, art galleries, music venues, and shady afterhours spots) while crossing over to dance clubs, prestigious festivals, boutique hotels, museums, ivy league colleges, fashion parties, gay events, arena pop/rock shows, and even raves – receiving nominations for nightlife awards from the fancier side of New York culture in the process.

Beyond that he is one heck of good guy that is dedicated to getting people dancing to good tunes. If you don’t know Toubin, or the music he spins – check out this short documentary.


Houston is known to always give a helping hand. With a host of benefit events being held in New York City and other cities around the country, Houston (Jonathan Toubin’s hometown) is taking a part, too. See you Saturday

Grab some Chicken & booze and Lets Boogaloo!!!

Scored this gem from my good friends at Juno.co.uk. Every house hold should have at least one copy just in case of an emergency boogaloo. And as always in the event of an emergency boogaloo situation remember to Keep Calm and Boogaloo Along.

Raphael Saadiq – Let’s Take A Walk

by on May.06, 2011, under Records

[youtube id=”n2lE5MzjmV8″]

Were always on the hunt for a new groove and Raphael Saadiq never disappoints, this Neo-Soul movement is full of amazing acts like Sharon Jones, Black Joes Lewis and many others and always keep in mind those trail blazers that are still laying it down today like Roy Head, Archie Bell, and Lee Fields.
Talk a Walk with Rapael Saadiq and those troubles of the day just melt away.

Elvis – Let your Self Go

by on Mar.02, 2011, under Records

Soulful rocker that I believe was originally written for Elvis’ & Nancy Sinatra’s musical Speedway and was also included in Elvis’ 1968′ Comeback Special but never aired because it was pulled by the sponsors who thought it was little too risqué. See for your self, too bad this never beamed over the american airwaves those cute little pink dresses definitely piqued my fashion interests.

The Dap-Kings – Nervous Like Me

by on Jan.28, 2011, under Records

[youtube id=”Gopuh34VdZQ”]

Funky lil track by one of the groovest backing bands of modern day the Dap-kings who also happen to back the amazing funk/soul singer Sharon Jones. These guys are taking it back to the days when things were done right, with real instruments in a pure analog studio. You’ll defiantly want to keep an eye out for anything Daptone these are the same cats who discovered and helped Amy Winehouse develop her sound.
