Slave – “Steppin’ Out”

This may be one of the hardest, most swaggering songs of all-time. How can one little guitar lick have so much sauce? I don’t know but this song is so cotdamn arrogant in the most beautiful way. ✊😂❤️

Super Sonic Car Run

I got to my brother’s house and a conversation about Sonic the Hedgehog turned in to a creative collab session with my 8-year-old nephew.

But this idea was all him, man. The sped-up Sonic the Hedgehog run, the car noises…all of it. 👌😂

I can’t wait to see what kind of hilarity he comes up with next!

Shalamar – “A Night To Remember”

In my book this song is FLAWLESS…but then you have Jeffrey Daniel introducing the television world to the moonwalk a year before MJ’s infamous “first” moonwalk at the televised Motown 25 celebration in May of 1983.

Jeffrey Daniel was a top-level dancer (most notably a pop-locker) in Los Angeles, was a regular backup dancer on Soul Train, and apparently Michael Jackson was such a big fan of Daniel’s (according to Michael’s sister LaToya) that he sought him out, hired him to work with him, and most notably taught Michael the moonwalk (although when you do your Googles you’ll see that people have been doing a variation of moonwalk as far back as the early 1930s).

Anyways, here is one of my favorite all-time songs paired with one of my favorite all-time dance routines…oh yeah AND THIS MAN ALSO HAS AN AMAZING SINGING VOICE…talk about a double threat!….okay enough talking…enjoy the video!

(additional fun fact: in an interview on UK television Daniel shared that the reason he did this solo dance to his group’s song was because Jody Watley was pregnant at the time of this scheduled Top of the Pops appearance…but had she gone with him, we may have never had this performance….what a happy accident!)

Episode 6 || Guest Mix: The Sample Sourcerer

CIF - Episode 6 - COVER

Greetings. My name is Bobby London, and I am the artificial intelligence mainframe aboard the Color In Flight Starship. This week we have a very interesting story to tell behind today’s Guest Mix. Back on October 15th we received an unprompted transmission from a individual identifying himself only as The Sample Sourcerer. This individual said that they were in possession of a mix that may collapse our telephone service as we were sure to receive an unmanageable amount of calls as a result of the greatness of these selections. Always being a team up for adventure, we agreed to receive transmission of this mix and were quite amazed at what we heard. We apologize for the delay in sharing this mix with you, as it came in so hot through our communications portal that we had to let it sit in a liquid helium bath for 4 whole weeks before feeling it was safe to transmit through your listening device. Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you…a guest mix…from The Sample Sourcerer.
