"No Guts, No Galaxy" - Rammellzee & phonosycographDISK
I have been collecting local Bay Area records for a long time now and this is the first Soul mix i’ve made. I’ve also helped to put out two Bay Area Funk compilations on Ubiquity records as well. Figured I share some of my Soul with the Funk i’ve already given you. These bands hail from SF, Oakland, Stockton, Richmond, Vallejo, Monterey, Fresno, and East Palo Alto. Enjoy a taste of the Bay Area Soul music scene. Enjoy!

For the past two decades, Rich Medina has cemented his reputation as an elite DJ, one of few on the planet capable of taking audiences worldwide on a sonic journey through hip-hop, house, soul, afrobeat, funk, breaks and dance classics. Today, many artists who have been Rich’s idols have become peers, and his fans often become his friends, even if just through the shared experience of music. Countless couples and relationships were commenced to the soundtracks he has created time and time again. His eloquence extends well beyond the music he plays—Medina’s spontaneous use of language speaks to the fact that he’s been a well-respected spoken word artist for over a quarter century, not to mention that he’s a journalist who has contributed columns and features to a wide variety of publications, including The Fader, Complex and Wax Poetics.
