      Funktuall, I gotta agree with FifthRig, I loved your style on this one, very laidback....perfect for me to watch feeling lazy and having a little buzz...normally your vids always make me one get up and boogie this one was a nice twist as I really enjoyed it, but could remain seated whilst bobbing my head.

      Awesome list man..."You Belong to the City" is such a great track. Just saw Jay Z in concert and it was incredible...

      One of my personal favorites that you didn't list is Labi Siffre - that dude has been sampled by almost everyone. Check out the track "I got the," I think you will find some familiar groves in there.

      The only bad thing about this show is that it keeps me from doing work. Cool vibe and informative. Nice work!
