Something in me by Norman Feels
Norman Feels released two classic soul albums in 1973 and 1974. Not many people know about these two albums — or even about Norman Feels — but I will still use the word classic to describe these albums. The word classic means something that is a perfect example of a particular style, something of lasting worth or with a timeless quality. It’s hard to believe that an amazing artist like this was so grossly under-recognized.
I’m exhausted from this long Labor Day weekend, so I wanted to keep this short. But make sure to check out the quick updates below for some really amazing projects from WBS producers.

Mr Klimatic: Thanks my man

I swear every time I’m done with a session I feel like “OK I’ve learned a lot, done!”, but it keeps on getting deeper and deeper each week!
There is way too much to mention here so I will keep it short – we are **** hot and should be proud of ourselves. I’m still trying to process how we manage to flip the samples every which way.
Thanks a lot C.Bran and Mr. Klimatic, illa and the rest of the WBS fam. I hope you enjoy the LP, because you have all individually inspired me in the creation of the project.
Much Love and Respect.

@Brian Staples: Thank you..
Folks, thanks for the comments. It was a pleasure. I made it on the train and submitted it when I got into town, so it’s not perfect – but it works. Good sounds this week.
I have limited time and internet, so I’ll see if I can participate this week.
Another dope Session everyone. I’m been too busy working on other projects to get in any of the beat sessions, but I plan on returning to it next month. @25/8 Thanks for the props, I’ll try my best not to disappoint when I return. Also big thanks to Illa for giving my album a plug, appreciate that.
A week later…and i’m still bangin out that Mr. Klimatic joint.
