"guably the biggest, most knowledgable Dilla head that I'd ever met. I had an idea of some of the sample materials that Dilla used on some of his productions but Oronde's passion and knowledge was so deep, he put me on to many of the Psych and Prog-Rock records that Dilla used as source material. In honor of both of these men, I made this mix." - John Morrison

Drummer Mike Clark & Soul Singer Andrea Simone Cover "Sunshine Of Your Love" by Cream


Get on the good foot and dance as Toronto-based funkadelic Soul singer and songwriter Andrea Simone injects high energy into a souled-out rendition of "Sunshine Of Your Love", the 1967 classic by British Rock band Cream. This up and coming vocalist has as much the ability to soothe you with her beautiful voice and the humanity of her lyrics as she presents an outstanding variety of Funk and Soul songs at her Soundcloud.

On a cooler note of Jazz, drummer Mike Clark uses the foundation of Sunshine's signature dark opening chords and lightens it's perspective, transforming Cream's songwriting into an upbeat groove which unfolds into a display of lively improvisation in a genre-bending expansion of the original piece.
