Mirella Cesa & Mr Pauer: Respira Ecuadorian singer-songwriter Mirella Cesa is best known as the "mother of Andipop" and here, she partners up with Venezuelan DJ Mr. Pauer for “Respira.” Fusing delicate Andean and Afro-Latin rhythms with Charango and indigenous drumming, this track has an enchanting melody.
Adrian Younge: Chasing Love Let's take a journey into spiritual jazz, funk, and dark-soul with LA-based composer/producer/arranger Adrian Younge. He loves the sound of analog and doesn't use samples (he is an entertainment law professor after all). Cinematic and highly orchestrated "Chasing Love" is as seductive as the title suggests.
Jon Hassell: Dreaming Visionary trumpeter Jon Hassell is the originator of the musical concept known as "Fourth World," which he defines as "a unified primitive/futuristic sound combining features of world ethnic styles with advanced electronic techniques." Hassell's first recording in 9 years is on his own new label. "Dreaming" is full of the complex layers and textures that echo his ethereal trademark sound.
