March - 2017
Listen to the way everything sits behind the groove in Bastien Keb's Pick Up. By letting some instruments hit just behind the beat, it gives the entire song a laid back vibe. Listen how the cross-stick (that's when the drummer hits the rim of the snare instead of the head) in Verbal Intercourse by El Michels Affair contrasts with every other instrument in the song. The reverb gives adds space while everything else appears to be close. Just a touch of 3D sound. Set the tone for your weekend day with the disco funk of Dopamine by Franc Moody. That's some high-octane groovin'. Sango takes the street sounds of Carioca Funk (a Brazilian genre of music that only favela dwellers can appreciate) and mixes it with chill sounds for an interesting combination.
Enjoy 39 minutes of good music.
