Italy’s Barrio Jazz Gang kickstart this sublime selection
of music with 'Linda Cançao'. On a deep house tip with jazzy
undertones, floating flute and beautiful strings, 'Linda Cançao' is already
a firm favourite at Ben Watt's 'Lazy Dog' and Francois K's 'Body & Soul'
Next up, Argentina's Ciudad Feliz is an up and coming artist
to watch out for. He has already started creating serious waves in the world
of electronic dance music. 'Since Last Time' is an infectious
slice of four to the floor funk with robotic vocals, percussive beats and the
catchiest of 'twisted strings' hooks.
Last but not least Japan's Kousuke Ogawa takes things on
an atmospheric downtempo journey. With its subtle Japanese-influenced tribal
drums, soaring saxophone and synth pads, 'Tom Vac' is full
of electronic emotion.
