Ones to watch – THEESatisfaction

I liked hearing the new single from these two singer/rapper/producers today. Who the hell are they? You might know but I predictably didn’t. Their label, Sub Pop sez:

THEESatisfaction are Stasia Irons and Catherine Harris-White. Stas was born and raised in Tacoma, Cat in Seattle and Hawaii. The pair live/laugh/love/dance and create in Seattle, WA. They write, produce and perform their own material, funk-psychedelic feminista sci-fi epics with the warmth and depth of Black Jazz and Sunday morning soul, frosted with icy raps that evoke equal parts Elaine Brown, Ursula Rucker and Q-Tip. They met by what was clearly cosmic happenstance at the University of Washington and haven’t stopped the flow since.

Their new single, Queens, can be heard here (I couldn’t get the bloody widget to embed), but check out their Bandcamp for two mixtapes (in my day they were called EPs, son) full of fitness.


DJ Wax On – Night Moves

Derby’s grand pappy of smooth grooves DJ Wax On has didn’t go out for new years, he spent it in his sumptuously appointed lounge sipping a fine Japanese whiskey on a soft leather beanbag while twiddling knobs to make this smooth jazz-fusion mix.


I listened to this and when I woke up I was having sex with EVERYTHING.
