---- Part Two of the Halfway Rewind Special, focusing on many of my most recommeded singles & EPs from 2003 so far, has come and gone. You can check out the show, along with the playlist. Details are below. UPCOMING SHOWS It looks very likely that I will remain here in town for the 4th of July weekend, so expect some quality music this coming Friday. Plenty of new goods are in wait, and I look forward to sharing the music with you. GONKYBURG SPECIAL July 11 will be the special broadcast on one of the most creative spots on the map. Gothenburg, Sweden isn't just one of the major ports of the country; it's also home to a group of young and talented musicians who often collaborate with one another to create musical works that have been admired by music lovers from around the world for the last several years. Swell Sessions, Ernesto, Quant, Jol, Plej, Hird...they're all from there. There are others in the fold, as well. The show will feature music, interviews, and more on Gonkyburg. AYRO PROFILE/INTERVIEW & MIMIMIX July 18 will feature a profile of Omoa Music recording artist Ayro. Delayed from a previously-scheduled date, you'll get to listen to the music and the words of this rising talent. His debut album will drop soon. Also on the show, I'll bring you an exclusive Urban Landscapes Guest Mix from Mimi Terris. As one-third of the female vocal trio B.L.E.S.S. (BLue Eyed Soul Sisters) and a talented individual in her own rights, she's cooked up her own influences that moves her soul. Be sure to catch it. BEN MONO GUEST MIX On July 25, the Urban Landscapes Guest Mix will come from Ben Mono. The debut long-player from Ben Mono, "Dual," is an album that I'm really feeling at the moment. I think it's the best album that Compost has put out this year,and I urge you to explore it when it drops soon. To coincide with its impending release, Ben's mix will air that evening. CURL CURL GUEST MIX August 1 finds the Urban Landscapes Guest Mix from Curl Curl--he of the radio show that bears its name. he may be a surfer dude, but he also is very much a selector...as you'll find out. More details soon on Curl Curl. ---- SUMMER DANCE EVENTS Time to put our music to the test on the dancefloor once again, as we have not one--but four dance events over the summer. All of the events will be at zPie in San Luis Obispo. Soul Invasion returns on Thursday July 19. This is our event featuring rare grooves, rare soul, and funky vibes.
