Ruckus Roboticus – I’m Thankful (Mix)

Ruckus Roboticus just released a dope mix, that we wanted to share with you today. We’re sure you’ve come across his name before, be it as a member of Ninja Tune’s Solid Steel Radio Crew, as guest at The Rub or when he remixes industry heavyweights. In best Thanksgiving tradition his new mix is called “I’m Thankful” .

It is in the spirit of Thanksgiving that I present my new mix: “I’m Thankful”. It’s a musical tribute to all the people and things I’m thankful for everyday (not just on Thanksgiving). In the mix is classic reggae, funk, soul, jazz, and R n’ B…. all of which will have you singing to yourself, the words of Spanky Wilson: “Thank you for the rhythm, and the rolling beat, thank you for the melody and the harmony so sweet … Oh yes, I’m thankful!”
