I am a long-time blogger & digital curator of the rarest classic gems on Spotify. My primary mission is to resurrect & preserve memories of our classic music culture in ALL GENRES, whilst also recommending new music that I feel are worthy of your ear. Please note that I am not affiliated with Spotify in any way! I simply use Spotify’s amazing free service to support the artists. Now, the kinds of hidden gems I’m talking about are the ones spanning 60 years to present day music. Classics NOT usually promoted anymore through (including, but not limited to), collector magazines/specialty clubs, mainstream radio stations, retail stores, or even S.A.P. (Cable TV). I’d also like to help expose my visitors to some great music they may or may not ever heard before; in hopes that I can assist in reintroducing/rebuilding our lost classic culture. I try to focus on writing articles on music I personally enjoy and or remembered growing up. So, just about every post you’re reading is the best of me; and if you’re a TRUE fan of the classics; and if your tastes are as diverse as mine; you’re going to enjoy a little more than half of the music I write about.
My blog is truly about cultural DIVERSITY! I am an extremely rare handful of multicultural bloggers of color, to OWN one of the most diverse classic music blogs on the Internet (both active & legal). I don’t need endless copycat(ed) YouTube links; nor do I need to know a celebrity’s birth date, nor date of death before I can celebrate their contributions to music. In a world full of copy & paste bandits, I pride myself in working hard to write my own shit! I’ve taken extreme measures in making sure that the content you’ll read here is unique and are of my own memories, experiences, and thoughts (as a PERSONAL BLOG should).
I VERY much enjoy hand blogging (A LOT), and wanted to help breath life again to the many genres that have been forgotten about, ignored, and or perhaps abandoned. So much of what we find on search engines today, as it pertains to “classic” music for example, usually centers around either the old school hip hop (most gangster) era, or classicAL music specifically. Now, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with those types of music, I’m just trying to say that our music culture is far too rich and broad for the internet to be almost exclusively inundated with those genres as it pertains to old school. It feels almost impossible to find any other classic genres. However, it is also true that we don’t have enough bloggers of color unfortunately. But, I digress… I do hope that my readers understand what I’m trying to say.
I recommend that you bookmark my site and visit at least once every week. I frequently update my blog with something new. Follow me on twitter to get my classic tweets. If you’d like to also contact me, you can do so by sending me a direct message through Twitter, or on my Facebook page. Please be kind and tell your friends about one of the most diverse classic bloggers of color in cyberspace!
