New LMG Soul Eclectics – Soulful Summer, Vol. 1: Daylight


It’s summer. So, it’s hot, humid, and—depending on where you live—it’s unusually wet.

This calls for sweating and dancing, whether on the dance floor or in the rain. In honor of summer, we’re dropping two Soulful Summer mixes in one week, a soundtrack for day and one for night. Each will be over three hours of grown folks’ sounds to catch a groove.

Usually, because of the mission of the LMG Soul Eclectics Mix Show to spotlight and celebrate music of this millennium, the material is 99% from releases of the last 15 years. With the help of a few soulful house disco mixes from DJ Henry, we’re digging into the crates for the first half of this mix, one heavily devoted to you house heads. As with all the LMG Soul Eclectics mixes, there are no musical boundaries of songs in the Black American Music tradition, with everything from acid jazz and the blues to hip hop soul and soulful house are represented.

If you like what you hear, be sure to subscribe to this podcast series on iTunes or Podomatic, and please share the links with the other music lovers in your life! Let’s keep this soul music movement alive and proving there’s plenty of good music still dropping. While much is not on old radio, it can all be found on LMG Soul Eclectics. Be on the lookout later this week for Vol. 2, Evening.  In the meantime, support the artists whose music you like and hear on our show. That’s what it’s all about!
