4Ever Songs: James Brown ‘Sex Machine’

In July 1970, James Brown unleashed a song that would go on to become one of his signature tunes: “Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine.”

The single caught the singer at a successful but tumultuous time. Hits throughout the ‘60s – including “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag,” “I Feel Good” and “Say It Loud – I’m Black and I’m Proud” – had made Brown one of the biggest names in music. The band recorded the original version of of “Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine” on April 25, 1970, at Starday King Studio in Cincinnati.

The muses of La Musa: Crystal Murray

Crystal Murray‘s work acts as a form of resistance toward predictability. The Paris based singer has found a way to seamlessly intertwine jazz, pulsating trap beats, and buttery smooth vocals to create an enchanting body of work that truly scrapes out such a distinguished lane for herself. 

On top of that, the 19-year old unites her French cool-girl demeanor with her knowledge and biological background of African American soul to create an uncommon cadence.

With her new EP ‘Twisted Bases’ arriving in February, Crystal Murray is getting is hyped with new track ‘Too Much To Taste’.

Music by Bergman: Eddie 9V

Eddie 9V has acted on instinct all his life. At the age of 15, this longtime soul artist turned away from the path of college and jobs to go all guns blazing on the roots and blues circuit of his native Atlanta, Georgia.

Now, released in 2021, ‘Little Black Flies’ is the 25-year-old’s most impulsive move yet, which catches everything that went down at a session that felt more like a party.

Now, the Florida-bred artist is stepping into the spotlight to sing about love, wanting to stop loving, and meeting someone who made her not give up on adoration. She has just released a new Ep: Public Dispalys of Affection.

Divus Julius presents: Bonobo

Simon Green, aka Bonobo, is one of the most widely played producers on the planet. He was a key catalyst in the downtempo electronica scene that rose up in the late 1990s, at the time when Air’s Moon Safari was in the Top 10 Charts.But he stood above the rest, and over a decade later, his jazz-inflicted, upbeat tempo has evolved since his Animal Magic album days. 

On January 14, L.A.-based electronic artist Bonobo will share his seventh studio album Fragments. The project was announced this month with “Rosewood,” a groovy and orchestral deep house cut, and his latest track “Tides” takes things a little more pensive. Jamila Woods, the Chicago experimental soul musician behind 2019’s Legacy, Legacy, finds the ebb and flow of the beat immediately and delivers a gentle yet cathartic performance.
