    J. Rawls is nice, I used to listen to him back at University, he made a mix I made for my girlfriend at the time lol.

    Anyways, I have a lot of his releases; my favourite song from him is a song he produced for Tavaris called 'Smile Again'. I think the production on this track is outstanding.

    That track was from my personal favourite from him, as a producer he's definitely up there and underrated. The track is from an album entitled 'The Essence of Soul'. I'd recommend giving that one a listen, it also contains these tracks:

    I also have his Hotel Beats Vol. 1 as well as the one where he presents Holmskillet. He also produced this song on El Da Sensei's album:

    Not forgetting his work with Black Star:

    But definitely check out The Essence of Soul, I think it was his debut album as well…

    That's dope, I love rare discs, I have Modal Soul on the way by Nujabes (First press release), cost quite a bit, but worth it.

    Have you heard all the tracks I dropped? Sorry if I can't be more help, what are your thoughts on Smile Again though? I love that track…

    Draft took the words out my mouth with "The Essence of Soul" joint. Others you should definitely hear are "The 1960's Jazz Revolution Again" with John Robinson and "Rawls and Middle" with Middle Child.

    I forgot to mention that 1960's tape!!! I discovered that J. Rawls when I was searching for more John Robinson, was hyped when I caught wind of J. Rawls doing stuff with him, completely forgot about that release as it's categorised in my iTunes under John Robinson, good drop Kaiser!!
