Week 14: Rebirth
Let me tell you, it feels real good to be able to say: WE’RE BACK!!!
And we’re back in style too! Instead of fixing up the old place, we felt like a change was due – a change to the better…something fresh, something simpler, cleaner and with an added focus on the music itself. We call it “4BB Weekly” – or rather “4BB Album of the Week”. And yeah, it’s really just as simple as it sounds – one new post each week, all year long…definitely choosing quality over quantity.
But we got some goods news regarding quantity as well…the 4BB’s are expanding! I’m proud to announce that we’ve added 2 new members to the staff. We got ourselves our very own 4BB DJ…say hi to LP2! (Yup, the very same LP2 who won our 4BB Beat Logo competition last year). And add to that, our very own 4BB graphics designer and blog technician – say hello to Flippin’! Both of them ready, willing and able to help us serve and protect the good music…and to make your stay here even more pleasurable both to your eyes and ears! We already feel right at home – and we hope you all will too!
Before we kick things off with LP2’s fabulous “Phoenix” mixtape, I really must take this opportunity to thank all of you who have helped make 4BB what it is…naturally, first and foremost, my brothers in arms: SB, Ark1 and Vincent! And the entire 4BB family…all of the contributors, the blogger colleagues, the 4BB regulars and followers, the commenters – no names needed, you all know who you are! 4BB just wouldn’t be the same without you. You are all the reason why we’re back! Thank you for your support! Keep them comments coming!
Now, let’s get back to the music…the real reason why we’re all here! DJ LP2 has prepared us a little something to celebrate our return…something real special: “Phoenix – The Resurrection Mixtape“! (Click the link for a preview!) Over 1 hour’s worth of great music including funky nuggets from acts like Honey & The Bees, The Dramatics, Anette Poindexter & Pieces of Peace, Creative Source, King Sporty, Love Unlimited, and Zeke Strong & The Ladyettes – just mentioning some of this delicious mixtapes content (see the back cover for full details and credits)! And don’t miss out on LP2’s wicked remix of Marvin & Tammi’s “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” All of it skillfully blended together into one sweet and soulful concoction just perfect for serving as the main course on this opening night! Enough of the talk now…this joint really speaks for itself! Enjoy! (Link in comments!)
For second helpings, we’ve filled the 12 weeks leading up to this joyful event with some of our favourite posts from the old blog (check out the “Archive” tab up in the right corner)! But save some room for dessert – our soul chef Vincent has a little special something of his own cooking over at Week 13!
Welcome back, ya’ll!
