I was born in Columbia Hospital two days after Nona Gaye, who was still the center of attention when I showed up. All that to say, I’ll always have a slight connection to D.C., bare minimum.

For the past couple of years, instrumental music from D.C. has been one of my favorite things. So here are some new ones from Apollo Brown, as well as the1978ers.

At first I was hesitant. Perhaps my pride kept me from reaching out. For years, I’ve had a mostly silent affinity for various “Christians who rap” in Texas — folks like Playdough, Sivion, L. Moore, The Warriors ATX, D-Kutz, etc…

To make a long story short, I hit up Bruno.

Not Bruno Mars, although I admire the hustle, the songwriting ability and a knack for writing hooks that could bring Shamu home for dinner.
