Sounds in the Clouds: Stimulus’ Africa In Your Earbuds 4.0 – WHAT IT MEANS (presented by Okay Africa)

Stimulus - Africa In Your Earbuds #4 Art, by DJ Underdog

I listen to a lot of dope music, much more than you would think from my recent posts (or lack there of)! Like so many people, I discover a lot of this dopeness in the “cloud”, whether it be via Soundcloud, MixCloud, or some other site or streaming service. It’s long overdue that I make a solid effort to share some of the goodies that have grabbed me. People hook me up. I should hook-up people right back. It starts today with a brand new discovery for me – Brooklyn MC and DJ, Stimulus. I’m sure Stimulus is a familiar name to at least a few of you, especially to the Okay Africa readers. Stimulus spits AND spins, but it’s the latter that is the focus of Surreal Soundscapes’ first Sounds in the Clouds  post. On WHAT IT MEANS his Africa In Your Earbuds 4.0 mix, Stimulus keeps it funky by blending Afrobeat, hip hop, funk, R&B, and a little Mike Jackson (MJ should have his own genre) to produce 47.5 minutes of uptempo chillness. The mix is simultaneously energetic and soothing – basically the ideal combination to lift spirits, get heads nodding, and feet stepping. CHECK IT OUT BELOW! And check Stimulus LIVE TONIGHT (November 11th) at Brooklyn Beauty Bar’s Bionic Boogie!!!
