The Ultimate Quiet Storm Mix

February 9, 2011

Dj Yoda and TOBE$ bring you the ultimate Quiet Storm Mix

It’s 10PM. Turn the clock radio on next to the bed. Turn the dial to your favorite R&B station (do those even exist anymore?). Set the :60 minute timer and listen to a sultry-voiced dj speak the words, “This is Quiet Storm for the lover in you.”

Slow Jamz vol. 1 by duo DJ Yoda and TOBES$ came out roughly 2 years ago. I remember listening to it non-stop for a month straight, no matter what time of day. As a musical-throw-back-aficionado, I have to agree that this is one of the best slow jamz mixes out there, compiling a mixture of Anita Baker, Zapp & Rogers and S.O.S Band. I can not take credit for this compilation but give thanks to the inter-webs for introducing me to such a wonderful team as DJ Yoda and TOBE$. As a collective, they are known as Sparkle Motion (an homage to Donnie Darko, perhaps). May Sparkle Motion return one day soon….they’ve been quiet for way too long.

And now the moment we’ve all been waiting for is here. It is my very distinct pleasure to introduce to you…..Sparkle Motion!
