Karriem the Dream

Not often do I return to podcasts after listening to them for the first week or so, the majority of them seem to be made with an invisible expiration date. But once in a while, a podcast really pulls me in and i continue listening again and again.

Such is the case with the Stones Throw Karriem Riggins podcast(recorded live at Miami's Winter Music Conference). Here in this 40 minute podcast Karriem Riggins, a jazz/ hip hop drummer, producer and emcee, starts off with some great soul/ jazz selections before getting into his own beats (which are completely and ridiculously off the hook) at around the 7 and a half minute mark. The fact that he is a drummer definitely leads to some head nodding funky productions that have incredible swing.

and if you want an idea of what you are getting into, take a listen to Erykah Badu's "Soldier" produced by Karriem Riggins, enjoy:
