"Darker The Beat, Sweeter The Groove" Mixed By DJ IMANI (Trip Hop, Future Soul, Remixes, Nu Jazz)

This mix is what I wanna hear at a lounge, or happy hour. Music for a hip, mellow crowd that could either get down, or merely engage in conversation. Maybe something you would hear at an art show, or in some restaurant. Some of the tracks are dark and full of grimey bass lines, and others are light hearted and easily digestible. I played this live, for a crowd that is used to hearing Hip Hop and Soul on a Friday night.  I had to stay within a certain bracket, or else I'd get booted. Didn't want to drift too far into the "weird shit", I sometimes get accused of playing.  It went over well because it still has elements of Hip Hop and Soul, but is clearly, nothing you would ever hear on the radio. There are some really good covers and remixes on here.
