Prince & Friends
Emmy award winning DJ Jedi makes quite the tribute with his latest release Prince & Friends. Best known on the Los Angeles scene for his residencies at now disbanded open mic venue Green and legendary music function The Root Down, Jedi gained international recognition as the official dj for Grammy award winning hip-hop trio Digable Planets. An avid Prince lover, Jedi succinctly compiles some of our favorite moments from the international music icon and a few of his most well known collaborators on this two-disc release.
Disc one contains the Vanity 6 hit “Nasty Girl”, along with the Prince tracks “Tambourine”, “Sex Shooter”, and “Lady Cab Driver”. Also included on this disc are tracks by Apollonia, The Time, and legendary percussionist Sheila E. Disc two contains the NPG circa hits “Sexy MF” and “7″, along with the racy “Hot Thang” and timeless classic “Erotic City”.
Showcasing Jedi as both tasteful selector and impeccable mixer, Prince & Friends proves to be one of the best contemporary Prince compilations currently existing in the states. Gift this to yourself or a Prince-loving friend this holiday season.
