It was bound to happen... weeks of theme-building demands a different release for the Sound Travels Mixtape; or at least the dude that puts them together. To that end, this mix just sorta turned on my mood and a feeling for some songs that I wanted to get into a mix somewhere. Like new Egyptan pop from Mayor Mahmoud, or electro-cumbia from some unpublished producers. The mix starts with a slow groove from South African singer Letta Mbulu and blooms through Latin, African and funk flavors from newer and less new artists. Peep this and get your groove on...

This week’s song is a match made in heaven. Take the soulful and jazzy sounds of the Canadian trio Badbadnotgood and the rawness of Wu-tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah and you get the sonic version of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Then throw in a verse from the one and only Doom, and it becomes one of the freshest cuts of 2015 so far. Take a listen to Ray Gun by Badbadnotgood and Ghostface Killah. It is Rhythm Lab Radio’s Song of The Week.

Should we play these songs from Sharon Jones and Andrew McMahan In The Wilderness?

Here’s a chance to pick the music we play.  

Songs that get enough favorable votes in this poll will get spun on 88nine.  You listen, you vote, you affect change on Radio Milwaukee.

The first selection for your consideration. Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings .  Sharon and her band are a staple on 88nine and are on the forefront of a revivalist movement that has recaptured the feeling of soul and funk music as it was at its height in the late 1960s to mid-1970s    Listen to Little Boys With Shiny Toys and vote yes or no for the song.

The Sundance Film Festival is where little known indie films can get big distribution deals and become Oscar contenders. Oscar nominated films like the documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop (2010), Boyhood, and Whiplash were all Sundance films.  

At the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, a new film is garnering huge amount of buzz and recently won a $7 million distribution deal with Open Road Films and Sony Pictures.  Dope is the name of the film and also how some critics are describing this coming of age comedy.
