Marvin Gaye made A P.O.W. Christmas song YOU NEED to hear

Marvin Gaye made A P.O.W. Christmas song YOU NEED to hear by Dan-O You need to follow Questlove of The Roots on all social media platforms. He ranked every Prince album release (including unreleased stuff to that point), and it is because of him that I found out Marvin Gaye had an unreleased album called You’reContinue reading “Marvin Gaye made A P.O.W.

My Favorite and Least Favorite sexual song of 2019

My Favorite and Least Favorite sexual song of 2019 by Dan-O I love moments. A song is sometimes a story but other times just a series of moments. A vividly rendered song allows you to be in those moments. The interesting part about my favorite and least favorite sexual songs of 2019 is that bothContinue reading “My Favorite and Least Favorite sexual song of 2019”

Song of The Year-Nont For Sale by Sudan Archives

Song of The Year-Nont For Sale by Sudan Archives by Dan-O I would bet the artist Sudan Archives knows more about the violin than I know about my family. Nont For Sale is my summer song but also a class I’m enrolled in on how to build a song. The first seven seconds are herContinue reading “Song of The Year-Nont For Sale by Sudan Archives”

Mixtape review-Drunken Babble by Kalie Uchis

Mixtape review-Drunken Babble by Kalie Uchis by Dan-O It is possible I have fallen so hard for Kali Uchis music because of her diction. I think her diction is better than mine has ever been in the 3,849 years I’ve been on this planet (long story).  In 2012 she released the mixtape collection Drunken Babble producedContinue reading “Mixtape review-Drunken Babble by Kalie Uchis”

Song of the year-In My Dreams by Kali Uchis produced by and featuring Damon Albarn

Song of the year-In My Dreams by Kali Uchis produced by and featuring Damon Albarn by Dan-O Kali Uchis had a fantastic 2017 popping up and doing great work in important places. On two of my top albums of the year she threw down (See You Again on Tyler, The Creator’s Flower Boy and Get You onContinue reading “Song of the year-In My Dreams by Kali Uchis produced by and featuring Damon Albarn”

Mixtape review-ILOVEMAKONNEN x Ronny J

Mixtape review-ILOVEMAKONNEN x Ronny J by Dan-O Makonnen is so much better in an unorthodox state. Whenever he tries to fit the traditional role of rapper or R & B singer he ends up sounding very out of sorts. I think he is at the very cutting edge of making music that achieves bits ofContinue reading “Mixtape review-ILOVEMAKONNEN x Ronny J”

Song of The Year-Lil Thing by Knox Fortune

Song of The Year-Lil Thing by Knox Fortune By Dan-O Debut albums are so much more complete than they used to be. The death of the music industry happened first with the death of developing talent. At this point signee’s must have already established their sound. So it is no shock when you listen toContinue reading “Song of The Year-Lil Thing by Knox Fortune”

Song of The Year-No Sleeep by Janet Jackson featuring J.Cole

Song of The Year-No Sleeep by Janet Jackson featuring J.Cole by Dan-O At the height of her fame Janet was stuck smack in the middle between two of the most important female artists in history. Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey were in a high note arms race, holding the microphone and bending backward belting andContinue reading “Song of The Year-No Sleeep by Janet Jackson featuring J.Cole”

My Star Wars Analogy between Miguel and Leon Bridges

My Star Wars Analogy between Miguel and Leon Bridges by Dan-O Miguel’s new album Wildheart is not short of brilliant. It’s like an intimidating layer cake of sexual pop music that carries Prince’s style with R. Kelly’s nymphomaniacal intention. Leon Bridges Come Home album is on the opposite side of the spectrum but just asContinue reading “My Star Wars Analogy between Miguel and Leon Bridges”

Song Review-Bad Man by Anthony Flammia

Song Review-Bad Man by Anthony Flammia by Dan-O I want everyone to check out The Looper by Anthony Flammia but it’s going to sound silly when I explain what it is. The Looper is a live r&b beatboxing mixtape and that might sound like something gimmicky that would wear out its welcome after three songs,Continue reading “Song Review-Bad Man by Anthony Flammia”
