The New Home For My DJ Mixes

This will be the new home for my DJ Mixes.  I will start with mixes from The Afterglow, but ultimately, I plan to have my entire body of work as a DJ on my page.

Goals & Patterns

At some point, I began to wrestle hard with the obvious question: Why was I unable to make any significant progress toward these things that were so important to me? That forced me to dig deeper and really examine the root causes behind my stagnation.

Waynebo's Christmas Jamz

My Christmas playlist is available on Spotify and YouTube.

NEW FUNK! "In My Natural Habitat"

Instrumental pop-funk inspired by the early 80's Minneapolis sound will always be a part of who I am as a musician. 

This is just the tip of the iceberg...

Legacy Releases

So much of my musical journey has been – and continues to be – about finding myself as a musician. I have always been a high-volume creator, so one of the results of this endless search has been a LOT of unreleased music...

Meanwhile in 1993...

In October of 1993 I bought my first sequencer - The Roland MC-50 mkII.

In the first few months of using the MC-50 I recorded several tracks including “Goody 2 Shoes” and “April Showers”. Today I am releasing them as a 2-song EP titled “Meanwhile in 1993”.

Music I'm Feelin': Rasmus Faber "Two Left Feet"

On his new LP, “Two Left Feet”, the dance rhythms are definitely there, but they are thoroughly bathed in a very organic vibe. And it’s beautiful to listen to...

Beyond The Radio... finding dope music

Giving a little perspective and highlighting 2 very dope podcasts you should listen to if you want to hear some dope new music.

Free 2 Be Epic

My next release of the summer is already here!

That First Sunrise

My first house release of this year is from The King Midas Project.

The inspiration for “That First Sunrise” came to me as I...

Music I'm Feelin': Ralf GUM - "Progressions"

Ralf GUM's 3rd full-length LP "Progressions" is another masterpiece of soulful house music.

Naturally Sweetened Remixes

On social media, my bio reads “Electronic & Funk Musician”. Last year I finally introduced you to the funk side with my EP “2 Stankin’ Minutes (The Prequel)”. My personal favorite on that EP was track 3, “Naturally Sweetened”. I’ve completed 2 remixes of that track and it’s now time to drop them...


The Aftermath (Waynebo's Electric Dance Mix)

In The Aftermath of my father's death, I created a track in his memory. This is my remix of that track....

The Aftermath (In Memory of Walter Stephens Sr.)

In the weeks leading up to my father’s passing, I considered how his death would impact me. I wondered if it would disrupt the wonderful flow of music that I had been churning out lately.....


Support my music and get “The Aftermath” on BANDCAMP.

Throwback: "I'm Leavin" & "Emancibounce"

Once upon a time back in the 90's - in the process of a long search to find myself musically, I used to do an R&B/Hip-Hop flavored style of jazz. As I moved into the 2000's, my inspiration began to lean toward more electronic styles...

Come & Get It (1995 House Mix)

Once upon a time, back in 1995...


Root Cause Analysis [2004]

Once upon a time, back in 2004, ya boy was makin’ some beats....

Waynebo's Kitchen Sync - The Wake-Up Call I went through the sounds a melody began to come to me and inspiration for a new track invaded the session. It was totally unexpected and I had a lot of fun making this one...

The Afterglow - 4th Anniversary Flashback #3

This 3rd flashback episode is all about #JAZZ

The Afterglow - 4th Anniversary Flashback #2

This 2nd flashback episode is all about the #BrokenBeats. We revisit the #DJMixes from shows 4 and 22. 

The Afterglow - 4th Anniversary Flashback #1

In July of 2010, The Afterglow started on the Lounge & Chill channel over at SSRadio. Even though that channel is no longer on the air, the Cool Vibes & Classic Beats have continued...

The Afterglow - 4th Anniversary Flashback #1 (links & playlist)

Wow… Has it really been 4 years of sharing the cool vibes & classic beats?  Yes it has!! 

Chilled vibes from Show 45

A fan in Paris suggested that I make the chilled vibes portion of the show available separately...

VIDEO: B'Joi - Waterfall (Waynebo's Niagara Dub) [A Producer's Perspective]

More personal notes to occupy your eyes while your ears dig the track :-)

VIDEO: B'Joi - Waterfall (Waynebo's In Love With House Mix) [A Producer's Perspective]

I added some personal notes on the production process just to share the experience and to give your eyes something to do while you listen to the track :-)

My remix of B'Joi's "Waterfall"

After an extended layoff, I am firmly back into the music production game. I am still fairly new to working "in the box" on a DAW - yo, I'm old school. I needed to re-tune my studio skills and get proficient in the software (SONAR), so I asked BJ Jones to let me do a house remix to one of the songs from B'Joi's upcoming album.  He was kind enough to send me the a capella to "Waterfall"....

Show 44 Notes & Playlist

Show #44

Welcome to my 44th set of Cool Vibes & Classic Beats! 

I want to shine a special spotlight on the new album from Mahogany Jones - “Pure Vol. 1” - A project that delves deeply into life issues facing so many of the women we love and live with. And it features several vocalists, emcees, producers and poets from Detroit! We’ll hear 3 tracks from this album in Phase 1

Phase 1 also features a heavy dose of dope lyricism from Andy Mineo and SPZRKT. King’s Dream Entertainment is also well represented with hot tracks from John Givez, Ruslan, and Dream Junkies. We have beats from Potatohead People and a track from Feelin’ Music’s Dilla Tribute album. We also get into new music from Los Chicos Altos, Bosq, and the new Jalapeno Funk Vol. 5 compilation. Youngblood Brass Band closes out Phase 1 with their rendition of Chaka Khan’s “Ain’t Nobody”. 

The DJ Mix of Phase 2 features the stellar remix skills of Opolopo. We open and close with tracks from him. The mix also includes tracks from DJ Spinna, Los Chicos Altos, Richard Earnshaw, Omegaman and more! You’ll also hear another track from Jalapeno Funk Vol. 5. 

The chilled vibes of Phase 3 feature music from Robert Glasper, a stellar remake from Natalie Lauren, Music Box Lord Echo, Jeanne Jolly, STWO and more!
