Pascal Schäfer - Far Away Places > Can't tell you too much this one other than it has a lovely loop, soothing ocean sounds and a seductive sample running through it. Sets the tone nicely…
Madala Kunene - Khono Thwele > A proper joyous African jam. Loose percussion, tempo shifts and all round good vibes, hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Pat Metheny - Sueño Con Mexico > This was introduced to me recently by a beautiful woman in my life, turns out I owned the track on a Café Del Mar album that I bought years ago but never really listened to it properly. Synchronicity at its best…
Ballistic Brothers - Marching On (Masters At Work "Trippin EFX Mix") > Masters At Work laying down ambient vibes on their remix of the Ballistic Brothers tune from 1998. You think they do beats good, check what they can do without them…
Chaser - Blue Planet (Abacus Blue Planetaria Mix) > I first heard this remix on the Om Lounge series from the early 2000’s. It really reminds me of living by the sea in Cornwall, mainly cos that’s where I bought it and played it out lots at gigs when I was there…
Chari Chari - Udu Spiral Monkey Dance (Le Groupe À Monique Mix) > Back to 1999 for this Frederic Galliano remix of Chari Chari in a French, African Japanese cross over. Total winner!
Jazzva – Nervous Lady > Not much I can tell you about this one other than its from 2004 and is lovely, a slow warm seductive groove…
Block 16 - Find An Oasis (String Reprise) > This is the beautiful String Reprise of Find An Oasis taken form the 2001 album, Morning Sun. The track features Jhelisa on vocals.
Getachew Kassa - Tezeta (Slow version) > Back to Ethiopia in 1972 for this one… I heard this on one of the Ethiopiques albums. Went for the slow version since we all about chill out here. Check the fast version too if you can!
Limbo Experience – Illusion > A track from 2000 on the awesome Yellow Productions label from France. This is the original mix produced by Julien Jabre. Check that piano.
Kaoru Inoue Presents Chari Chari – Aurora > Japanese Deep House from 2002. Love this track!
Seigen Ono – Julia > And to finish a beautiful production by Seigen Ono. Those strings are something else!
