Real Splashy Radio presents:

This week we welcome my special bub Newcastle to talk about the new single “Fine” off his forthcoming project hopefully dropping in June-July. We talked about the production of the track all played out by himself along with the mix/master process. We played the instagram grab game and discussed the inner workings of the music community. Also played some unreleased Solomon Wexley along with the usual suspects. This is episode 15 of Real Splashy Radio on WRIR 97.3!

Real Splashy Radio presents:

When I first heard “Buffalo”, the new tape from Scuml°rd & Cauzndefx, I was blown away by the evolution of Scummy’s sound. We’ve known each other for quite some time and I heard some of those first beats they ever made. To watch them grow and create this masterpiece is nothing short of inspiring. The link up with Cauz during the pandemic brought forth not only a new fire underneath to propel them forward, but it shattered the original self-induced ceiling.  We chatted about this experience among other topics such as the current over-saturation of rap music on the internet, the inverse lack of sufficient music journalism, and we got to talk about the journey that brought them to us today. You’re Scum & Real Splashy & I love you. Hope you enjoy!

Cause and Effect presents:

LaDonna Gaines was born in Boston, MA. on December 31st, 1948. She showed an early interest in music and started singing in her church choir at the age of eight years old. Influenced by the counterculture of the 1960s, Summer became the lead singer of a psychedelic rock band named Crow. Since forming in 1966, the Crow had become a local sensation through its performances at the Psychedelic Supermarket, a venue where bands like Cream, the Grateful Dead, and Big Brother and the Holding Company made Boston tour stops. It was there that Janis Joplin made an indelible impression on the Crow’s lead singer, Donna Gaines. The Crow was singled out for its musical versatility, especially the ease by which the band’s frontwoman moved from one genre to the next. Donna Gaines later became known to the world as Donna Summer, The Queen of Disco, but her time in the Crow helped set a precedent in rock music. With a black female singer leading an interracial rock band, the Crow was a trailblazing forerunner.

In 1968 she joined a German adaptation of the musical Hair in Munich, where she spent several years living, acting, and singing. There she met music producers Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte, and they went on to record influential disco hits together such as “Love to Love You Baby” and “I Feel Love”, marking Summer’s breakthrough into international music markets before returning to the United States in 1976. Moroder described Summer’s work on the song “I Feel Love” as “really the start of electronic dance” music.

Summer amassed a total of 42 hit singles on the US Billboard Hot 100 in her lifetime, with 14 of those reaching the Top 10. She claimed a top-40 hit every year between 1975 and 1984, and from her first top-ten hit in 1976, to the end of 1982, she had 12 top-ten hits (10 were top-five hits), more than any other act during that time period.  She was the first artist to have three consecutive double albums reach the top of the US Billboard 200 chart and charted four number-one singles in the US within a 12-month period. She sold over 100 million records worldwide, making her one of the best-selling music artists of all time. She won five Grammy Awards.

Summer died on May 17, 2012, from lung cancer, and in 2013, Summer was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In December 2016, Billboard ranked her sixth on its list of the “Greatest of All Time Top Dance Club Artists.”

Real Splashy Radio presents:

Trying to embrace the positive a bit more and what better way is there to do that than through music? The sun has been radiating love and light and the frequencies are just right to create some head-bobs and sweet, sweet smiles. I hope you enjoy this mix that I have prepared. The artist interviews will continue next week. I wanted to use this episode as a canvas to paint the image that should hopefully speak to what I am listening to currently/listen to on the regular-degular. Some friends and favorites will be featured in the mix as always as well as some new discoveries! Join me as we continue spanning far and wide through the genres that bend the bodies in all sorts of wonderful ways. This is the Wendigo mix, something to play to let you know “when to go”. Whether you’re on the move or just racing through your mind. From Splashtown with Love!

Real Splashy Radio presents:

Another instrumental break to cap off a wonderful round of interviews. Let this be an important reminder to take time for yourself every now and then, whatever that looks like for you. This is another wonderful experience I get to have each week, the fact that I get to have this platform and opportunity to conversate with some of my favorite local artists, and then also on top of that meeting new individuals while on the search for music discovery. Sometimes schedules can be more complex and that’s when an impactful change from the usual flow can be beneficial for everyone. I hope that these 2 hour instrumental sessions are just as pleasurable as the episodes that feature guests and delightful conversation. These breaks also allow me to practice my sexy radio voice, which I will not compromise on! Featuring music from Yoki, Scumlord, Dogfuck, Bstfrnd, Dignan, ScoopKid, Cashby, Ohbliv, Clwdwlkr, Help! I’m Stuck in the Computer!, Charles Benjamin, Archangel, Sofia Lakis, UNCKLE, and many more. Big love from Big Splash!
