He still influences artists like Kanye, Common and The Game.1Xtra’s MistaJam takes us through the highs and lows of Gil’s extraordinary life from classic songs like “The Revolution will not be Televised” and “The Bottle” to the time he spent in jail.

Mos Def, Chuck D and Ty tell us why his music and message is still relevant today and Bashy hears Gil’s music for the first time.

NEO-SOUL,SOUL,HIP HOP- ‘Wake Up’! The John Legend Aus Tour Mixtape By DJ Trey | Soul of Sydney Block Party Radio


https://soundcloud.com/soulofsydney/soul-of-sydney-block-party-9

Hello folks .. This is Dj Trey here .. Just giving you a little bit of insight to my latest John LegendWake Up Everybody Mixtape! … It’s nothing too fancy, just a good mix of some of my favorite JL tracks and some of his best features and also some good remixes and live performances – all just to get you geared up for his upcoming tour. I think any hardcore JL fan will appreciate this mixtape. Even if you aren’t a major fan of his work I guarantee – if you love you some good, wholesome soul and a lil’ bit of Hip-Hop .. this will definitely get your head boppin’.

I’ve started the mix off with JL’s acapella version on ‘Rollin’ In The Deep’. The track itself is amazing and what he brings to it (on an ACAPELLA level) is just immaculate. Not only does he sound crisp and intense – there’s also a gentleness which is ironically fitting to the song. It’s a good introduction to people are unfamiliar with him and .. it’s a great rendition for people who are familiar with the original.

The mixtape goes on exploring a lot of his earlier work and a lot of album filler/B-side tracks. There is way too many Kanye features on the tape but I think that these two compliment each other too much to ignore. Especially on their latest track together – ‘Blame Game’ (I would’ve included Chris Rock‘s monologue – but it would’ve killed the vibe.. even though it’s HELL funny!) … Also on the mixtape their is some of their very first work together – the track that I first heard John Legend on – ‘Selfish’ by Slum Village. I love this track! Classic cut! I remember watching this video clip over and over and for AGES had no idea who the singer was… for that fact I never had any idea who Fonzworth Bently was (dancing around in the clip the whole damn time!) .. Only when the single ‘Used To Love U‘ dropped did I finally find out who the singer with the receding hair line was! Jkz!

Here’s the clip for you to check out:

Slum Village – Selfish Ft. Kanye West & John Legend:

There’s a lot of good features on the tape .. Common, Consequence, Mary J, Estelle, Pete Rock & CL Smooth .. I tried to get enough good features on there and still allow every song to run it’s necessary coarse. The mixtape ends with what I believe is one of his ultimate .. all time tracks .. ‘Ordinary People‘. It’s the only slow jam on the mixtape (even though he has a undeniable collection of them) .. I didn’t want there to be too many slow jams .. I wanted this to be a feel good mixtape, to really get people looking forward to his concert. I actually wanted to end the mix off with George Benson & Al Jarreau’s cover of the song .. Just because it is such a smoooooth version of the song .. and really this is one of those songs where everybody already knows the words – this version allows the music to speak for itself.

If you haven’t heard it before, it’s definitely worth a listen:

George Benson & Al Jarreau – Ordinary People:

BUT! after hearing this Live version with The Roots .. I couldn’t let this not be on the Mix .. especially because this mix is promo for the upcoming concert – this is exactly the kind of performance we can expect from the man when he arrives !! but you GOTSTA be patient for the track :p

I remember going to see John Legend live at The Metro in Sydney for just about $25 .. that was in 2004 or 2005 .. the show was AMAZING.. I barley knew any tracks (because his album hadn’t even dropped yet) .. but it was one of the BEST concerts I’ve ever been too – EVER! .. I also remember after one of his tours here .. there was an after party at Mylk (now known as Nevermind) .. I went up to him and shook his hand! Such a humble guy he was happy to talk to anyone – I really hope he’s still that guy .. we’ll have to wait till the weekend to find out!

Hope you enjoy the mix .. and if this is going to be your first time seeing John Legend live .. I hope you have same amazing experience I had way back when..
