After a couple weeks off due to Coachella and a post-festival cold, I had a lot of show stories and music to share in this episode. Time is pretty evenly split here between Coachella favorites and brand new music from the last couple weeks.

With rain coming down in SF, this week’s episode came together just at the right time. After a multiple year hiatus, The Music Ninja’s weekly Sunday Night Soul returned last weekend. To celebrate, I had Ninja Baseer put together the first couple segments with a mix of soulful, forward-leaning R&B tunes. After touching on the dissociative pysch rock of Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s latest album, the remainder of the show was dedicated to hazy, lo-fi house. Anchored by a selection Ross From Friends stellar Brainfeeder debut, the last hour hits right in the late night feels.

After a themed episode and a week off, i had way too much music for this episode. I decided to focus on a couple artists I’ve seen live recently, several quality new hip-hop releases and some pretty electronic beats. My favs from this episode include revisiting a classic Talib Kweli cut, a groovy new single from Still Woozy, Black Milk’s smooth bars, Ross From Friends‘ stellar Brainfeeder debut and Four Tet‘s gorgeous Bicep remix. – Ash

With special guest-Ninjas Baseer and Clayton calling in, we revisited a classic TMN playlist: Sunday Night Soul. While Baseer took the reigns on curating this episode, Clayton dropped by to talk about the latest Cadence and Cause campaign, a charity sweepstakes to attend The Buku Project in New Orleans. The rest of the show is perfect for post Valentine’s day blues–a perfect mix of relaxing, soulful and emotional. Make sure to check out the Spotify playlist this week because Baseer threw a few bonus tracks in!
