Questlove's next four DJ sets will consist entirely of Prince music - Live Now

Questlove's next four DJ sets -- which he streams online via https://www.youtube.com/c...l6hxllcSzA and various other channels (but the YouTube feed is the highest quality IIRC) -- will consist entirely of Prince music.

.
It starts tonight (16 April), and considering a typical DJ set is four hours, that mean's he'll play 16 hours of Prince.

.

(Fixed link)

Where did he say he was doing this? I didn't see anything on his socials. It would be great if it's true. Looks like he starts spinning at 10PM Eastern usually.

Don't get too hyped for unheard gems.He mentioned that he had to get approval from the estate so I wouldn't expect anything too rare.

He's already dropped a few rarities so I expect a bunch over the next four nights.

Has he played anything unreleased that's not widely circulating?

I think he won't be able to resist dropping in some unreleased stuff if it's over four nights. He did so on the Stevie one.

He's been doing those Prince parties, so I would expect it's going to whatever playlists he's using there. How deep do those cuts get?

He played at least one Prince rarity, a live track of "All the Critics Love you in NY" during his attic DJ stream..... he changed the speed/pitch lower, added in effects..it took half the song for people to realize it was actually a Prince recording and not a cover. It was something circulating.

Also he's playing a lot of these songs in full, pulling them back, talking about them....so that's partly how he's filling up four hours.

I'm curious to see if the Estate ALLOWS Questlove to archive these shows on the Roots YouTube page. That would be fucking great.

I don't see why not. He's also talking and dropping effects over most of the songs at this point, so it's not like anyone is going to treat these like normal dj sets.

Questlove’s first track tonight?

“The Rock”. Prince’s first version of “Let’s Work”
recorded in 1979.

My interest is in his stories, although him stopping or filtering the music to talk over it is gong to piss off people.

Me either. His Insta story says he’s having technical difficulties and that he’ll let us know when he’s ready to go. That was 40 min ago

Whether it's ?love or MSNBC News or The Today Show, we're finding out that these magical streams are still pretty basic. There's always glitches. More tech workers needed wink

I'll be honest ....he bored the shit out of me about 20 minutes ago. I'm currently listening to some of my own live Prince boots. MEH.

That was an education. Love the stories he tells. It's truly frightening / awe inspiring as to how much music P created & in so many styles. You seriously can't compare anyone to him.

Questlove really was great on this ...3 more shows to go!!!...

Note the technical glitch at the start....P's spirit doing a cease & decist!!!!

feeluupp

I love how he gave insight to the abrupt fade in to the ending of I Don't Wanna Leave You song by The Time... I always knew there was a mistake and I remember posting a thread or a post about it a few years back but many orgers said there was no mistake in the song, etc...

So last night he said Jesse told him that was supposed to be the intro to the Make Up Remix but he put it on the same reel of I Don't Wanna Leave You by mistake.
