Unique74 Revisited | “Feel What I’m Feelin” | Dj Center

DJ CENTER “Feel What Im Feelin”

An inviting collage of honest music and warm beats coming from
planet Brooklyn. Dj Center brings an exciting and delightful compilation of grooves while inviting you to his world and state of mind through these carefully picked selections. The presentation of this mixed
complilation is quite fascinating for the fact that this is
a double disc release covering the various degrees of Nu Soul/Hip Hop and Free Form Jazz. “Feel” also has an array of rare gems from artists such as Q Tip “Money Maker”, Sa-Ra
Pharoahe Monche “Glorius”
(remix) and the ultra rare Digable Planets “Dedicated”. Other artist featured are The Platinum Pied Pipers, Vinia Mojica (wassup
DJ Magnito!!), The Last Poets and many more.
The Hip Hop Soul disc serves as an appetizer for the motherlode which is the “Jazz in the Color Purple” disc. The “Jazz” disc is purely an invitation to the essence (next to Blues and Gospel) of Hip-Hip and Soul. These compesitions
are not only timeless but they bring an instensity and quality that you simply dont find in today’s musicians. The artists featured on this disc such as Pharoah Sanders, Ahmad Jamal, Yusef Lateef, Ramsey Lewis,Kenny Burrell,etc are not playing a groove, they are playing an experience. Center captures that feeling and emotion of these musical gods featuring pieces such as Pharoah Sander’s majestic piece “Lower Egypt” which sounds just as moving today as it did when I use to hear it as a child.

This disc also features a very regal
rendition of WAR’s “Slipping Into Darkness” perfomed by Chicago’s own Mr. Ramsey Lewis and the Gary Bartz/Andy Bey classic “Celestial Blues”.
The “Jazz” side is filled with a lot of “jellies and gems” but its clearly a testiment of pure perfection and feeling of these great musicians that will or may never be heard again in such a fashion. DJ Center takes you on one serious musical journey with this release and hopefully you too will get “the feeling”.
