The 2015/1967 Countdown - 08/19/2016 Update

Here's the funny thing about putting together an annual mix collection comprised of close to two hundred songs - you still agonize over the last track you had to cut for time.

This year, the most painful cut was without question LA-based neo-soul collective's Go With It, from their solid third LP Ego Death.

Propelled by Syd(ney Bennett) The Kid's gorgeous voice and an excellent opening guest rap from Chicagoan Vic Mensa, this chill, funky tune was on my original pass of Black Music Circa 2015, but  removed at the last moment to make room for an additional Kamasi Washington track.

Still, leaving them out of this year's collection has stuck in my craw so badly, I just had to give them a shout out.

So here's Go With It.
