NO ESCAPIN' THIS .:Sep 07 09:.

Make sure to cop the homie Norm Rockwells newest Mix CD!

"Everyone needs to get away sometimes... Unfortunately, you can't always do so physically. While responsibilities may keep us grounded in one location, music transcends. It becomes its own form of transport as you ride the rhythm of that kick-clap and hug the curves of a soulful vocal melody. You take an aural departure from the daily grind. Life is unrelenting, which can be either exhilarating or exhausting. At times it is both. Just close your eyes and breathe to the beat.. . . . Escape(ism). This 41-track epic journey thru nujazz, upbeat soul, and hip hop features music by Nujabes, Esthero, J.Rawls, Si*Se, DJ Day, Dela, Fat Jon, Zero 7, Presto, DJ Tonk, and many more, with EXCLUSIVE tracks by DJ Vinroc, Choice37, Freddie Joachim, and evs."
