But not Reggae or Hip Hop, as we already have it covered.

It seems the forum has plenty of interest judging by recent lists and posts. And soul music seems to be in a good place in 2020.

With that it mind, here's 2 playlists to get things started.

The first is 21st Century Soul (with a smattering of hip hop, dance and stuff veering closer to jazz and an amazing Herbie Hancock cover). A lot of it is from this year.

I'll stick a tracklist on when i'm at my PC for the one forum member that doesn't have spotify.



Cleo Sol- Why Don't You
Quantic- Look Around the Corner
SAULT- Wildfires
Mysie- Doves
Natty Wylah, Puple Cloud - Cinders
The Last Poets- Understand What Black Is
Michael Kiwanuka- Love & Hate
Arlo Parks- Hurt
Zara McFarlane- Black Treasure
Nubiyan Twist, Ego Ella May- 24-7
Poppy Adjudha- Watermelon Man
The Internet, KAYTRANADA- Girl
KAYTRANADA, BADBADNOTGOOD- Weight off
Pete Josef- Colour
Thundercat- Dragonball Durag
Khruangbin- Time (You and I)
Paul Epworth, Jay Electronica, Lil Silva- Love Galaxy
Moses Sumney- Quarrel
BADBADNOTGOOD, Charlotte Day Wilson- In Your Eyes
Oscar Jerome- Sun for Someone
Sudan Archives- Limitless
Somni- Home
Lizzo- Good as Hell
Esperanza Spalding - How To (Hair)
Lou Hayter - Cherry on Top
Erykha Badu, James Poyser- Tempted
Kadjha Bonet- Wings
Sampa The Great- Bye River
Janelle Monae, Solange- Electric Lady
Frank Ocean- Sweet Life
Jorja Smith- Rose Rouge
Greentea Peng- Hu Man
Anderson Paak- Lockdown
Kali Uchis, Tyler trhe Creator, Bootsy Collins- After the Storm



The second is old stuff. 70s funk is over-represented. Partly because I love it and partly because golden age hip hop is so informed by it. And it's no secret that that's my bag. Man.



Donny Hathawat- The Ghetto
Vicki Anderson- I Want To Be In the Land of Milk and Honey
Clarence Wheeler, The Enforcers- Right On
Ike & Tina Turner- Bold Soul Sister
Terry Callier- You Goin' Miss Your Candyman
Eddie Kendricks - Girl You Need A change of Mind
Maceo & The Macks - Cross The Tracks
Fred Wesley & The JBs- Blow Your Head
Blackbyrds- Rock Creek Park
Lonnie Liston Smith- Expansions
Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes - Don't Leave Me This Way
Isaac Hayes- Never Can Say Goodbye
Jackson Sister- I Believe in Miracles
Donald Byrd- You and Music
Shuggie Otis- Strawberry Letter 23
The Isley Brothers- Summer Breeze
David Axelrod- Holy Thursday
James Mason- Sweet Power, Your Embrace
Baby Huey & The Bay Sitters- Listen to Me
The Jimmy Castor Bunch- It's Just Begun
The Five Stairsteps- O-o-h Child
Fatback Band- (Are You Ready) To Do The Bus Stop
Lyn Collins- Put It On The Line
Donald Byrd- Cristo Redentor
Minnie Ripperton- Les Fleurs
The Natural Four- Try Love Again
Archie Shepp- Attica Blues
Voices Of East Harlem- Wanted Dead of Alive
Maceo & The Macks- Soul Power 74
Curtis Mayfield- (Don't Worry) If There's A Hell Below
Ben E King- You're Stepping on My Heart
Johnny Bristol - Hang On In There Baby
The Rotary Collection- I Am the Black Gold of the Sun
The Honey Drippers- Impeach The President
The JBs- The grunt
Ronnie Hudson- West Coast Poplock
Gil Scott Heron- Lady Day and John Coltrane
Esther Phillips - Home is Where the Hatred Is




Neither is sequenced with any thought, so shuffle away.

Don't encourage him.

Nice playlists, don't have spotify but there's some right tunes in there. Love The Jimmy Castor Bunch. The couple of records of theirs I have contain some absolute bangers (and equally as many bloody awful slow numbers)

Haha! I have the album of that track and yeah, it's patchy!

However; that tune has been a breakers classic since Flashdance. Love the remakes!







But nothing beats this
