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.

[R&B/Soul] KHAI – For You

KHAI
For You

We’re proud to let you know that KHAI has returned. After being out from music for a decent stretch of time, he’s back with “For You.” The psychedelic, soulful experience is a magnificent single and a triumphant return for one of our favorite talents.

The hypnotic sound will intoxicate you with its infectious beat. However, one can’t go on without mentioning KHAI’s masterful performance, on that captivates from his first note to his last. “For You” is currently available on digital platforms and we suggest grabbing a copy. Throw it on repeat and stay tuned for more from KHAI.

Sunday Night Soul [Vol. 51]

In honor of the most romantic of all holidays (Easter, of course), we’ve decided to revive a little something from our past. Sunday Night Soul was a weekly series focused around bringing you the best in R&B from around the web to help you wind down at the end of your weekend. No, this is not an April Fool’s joke (at least we hope not), but we have made a few changes to help make things a bit more manageable for both us and you. For one, we’ve decided to shorten the playlists this time around to allow you to truly appreciate each week’s offering in its entirety. Secondly, we’ll be making our playlists available on SoundCloud and Spotify as well, so make sure to follow us on both platforms if you don’t already! With that being said, in the wise words of the honorable SZA, just sit back, relax and ease your mind as you dig into the tracks below.

The Pendletons – Funk Forever EP [TMN Premiere]

It’s not quite the weekend yet, but The Pendletons out of San Francisco have come through the dojo to help get you there in style. Their EP, Funk Forever, is getting exclusively scooped early right here! Complete with five original tracks and a remix, you’ll be grooving into Friday with ease.

Funk Forever delves into various sounds including funk (obviously), jazz, soul and more. There’s a certain level of nostalgia that the group was able to harness, paying homage to older disco records that influenced their sound. From the first note until the last, The Pendletons capture your attention and body with lively grooves, emotive melodies and so much more. It’s a hell of an EP that is well worth getting a copy of. If you’re looking to do so, Bandcamp has you covered.
