I Be Music: Spread – MLK

Posted in I Be Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 18, 2012 by ibemusic

This version of SPREAD is called MLK and is inspired by Martin Luther King Jr and the struggle of People Of Color. It is our first iMix focusing on the power of storytelling through music and sound. Give it a listen and be transported back to a time in history where people were enslaved, transported to a foreign land, and fought for freedom by changing American culture.

For the tracklisting/streaming capabilities, head on over to my mixcloud.

This special iMix is more like an emotional rollercoaster; I tried to capture the mood I felt upon hearing MJ’s unfortunate death. A drew a lot from Motown and the hits from the 50’s and 60’s. I’m aware of what everyone else is doing with their various mixes but since I’m not really a DJ, and was once a huge Micheal Jackson fan, I felt like the only thing I can do is be truthful about my emotions and choose the selections that best represented that moment. I’m still fuckin’ shock, though!
