Show 784: DJ Akalepse paints in deep shades of soul, from the Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band's cover of Hi-Tek's "Round and Round" to late night soul by the Isleys, street level beats from Step Brothers & Styles P, stripped-down sweetness by The James Hunter Six and legend-level lyricism by the mighty Pharoahe Monch. Plus hard-hitting drums & precision rhymes on Dilated Peoples' "Good As Gone", recent funk roughness from Diazpora and DJ Moar, big brass bounce by the Frank Pleyer Big Band, and West Coast classics from Xzibit, Tash and Jurassic 5.
