Digable Planets

I'm opening for Digable Planets tonite @ The Commodore in Vancouver BC so I decided to post a couple of goodies that will be familiar to all the real fans out there. I had the opportunity to actually dj for them last time they were in town and I'm on stand by waiting to see if their real dj makes it across the border tonite. If he doesnt make it, then I have to step up to the call of duty. Hopefully no customs officers are reading this.

KC & The Sunshine Band - Ain't Nothing Wrong

Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers - Stretching
