Roots of Society Records - Advent Vibes Vol.2

Pure chilly vibes for your ears only, I don’t really remember how I discovered Elyonbeats’ album Milestone but I can certainly remember that it was in the process that I discovered Roots of Society Records, again another excellent netlabel, full of chilly releases and pearls just waiting to be found guilty of being beautiful. This compilation goes here and there, from urban chill to rap and always on the brink of a butterfly cocoon about to hatch. And saying that, I’m going to go listen to this while gardening a little, to see if the neighbours like it as much as me.

After a long while of being unable to do anything heavy about the site, I finally regained control over my electronic overmind, my computer that does not overheat every five seconds. And I can make it move again, so I decided to upload the two latest releases on Youtube, for them to be easily shared and used in playlists. I’ll try to put most of them but it takes time, so do not hesitate to subscribe to my Youtube channel to stay tuned.

Juleah - Shimmering Road

Smooth-singing austrian Juleah knock on your door of perception to take you on a journey on the straight desertic roads of the USA, on a sunny day, here is what is to come if you click on play, in this album, velvet-like and necessary to your collection.

State Azure - Disconnect

Cheating with the time itself and its impossible to understand whereabouts, I’m making you believe that I wrote this article on time, whereas in fact it’s already 6pm.

I’m switching to the old design now, because it’s more efficient with the Facebook sharing. A picture, a sublime and powerful article, and an embedded player.

Slow and smooth, curly and curvy, deep and full of psybient chilling sweetness, you know what State Azure is capable of now that you’ve listened to Outlines. Just what you need to chill your brains out of everything negative, no name, just beautiful bass and melodies.

Amerigo Gazaway - Yasiin Gaye: The Departure (Side One)

Yasiin Gaye: The Departure (Side One) by Amerigo Gazaway

"Amerigo Gazaway’s *Soul Mates* series continues the theme of his previous work in creating collaborations that never were. On the series’ latest installment, Amerigo unites Brooklyn rapper Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) and soul legend Marvin Gaye for a dream collaboration aptly titled “Yasiin Gaye”. Building the album’s foundation from deconstructed samples of Gaye’s Motown classics, Gazaway re-purposes the instrumentation into new productions within a similar framework. Carefully weaving Bey’s tangled raps and Gaye’s soulful vocals over his new arrangements, the producer delivers a quality much closer to an authentic collaboration than a lukewarm "mashup" album".

Review taken from Bandcamp because I had no time to write my own. But I still have to translate it in French so it’s okay to say I’ve worked a little.

Dainumo, Jeesh, P SUS - 3 Flavors of 8bit

3 Flavors of 8bit by Dainumo, Jeesh, P SUS
When you see those names, Dainumo, Jeesh or P SUS, or better, the three of them together, do not hesitate and listen. It’s always a bunch of aural pearls in their own styles. I discovered them with the compilation Far Far Away that was suggested by Maxime, a friend of mine, thanks a lot to him.
Full of groovy 8bit goodness, ranging from pure video game tribute to electronica and techno, these three flavors of 8bit really put the mind at ease and in the mood for good old remembrances. Good times brother, good old times.

Perkulat0r - Transcension

Transcension by Perkulat0r
Tranquil and groovy electro sometimes bordering ona kind of sweet and gentle neo-dubstep, but in a meaningful and enjoyable way. Just listen.

Auditive Escape - Holoscape

Holoscape by Auditive Escape
I’m going to simply create a RSS flux between La Mojoteque and Auditive Escape’s Bandcamp page, because everything he creates has a touch of genius inside. I think that is enough said, now let’s press play…

Halo - Song of The Highest Tower

Halo - Song Of The Highest Tower by astrangelyisolatedplace
A bit of beautiful piano, inspired by the perfect moments we can sometimes capture in our minds’ eye.

Bioscape - Living Connection

Until now, I had never heard anything about Andrew Dyche, aka Bioscape, and just when the time was right and my ears ready to be soothed, I wandered a bit on Ektoplazm in thePsydub section, I found myself listening to this album, and soon I was completely overwhelmed with delight, sorry if I always exaggerate but it is for a good cause. An atmosphere like a tropical forest, perfectly blended instrumentals. Very soft, soothing, harmonious, a real neural massage.

Interesting fact, Bioscape is produced by the Gliese 581c netlabel , on which I have already discovered some really amazing artists such as HelixNebula or Globular, so there is a good chance that there still is some incredible pearl of music to be found there… Oh, and thanks to Ektoplazm for the music they share, and for their extra-efficient sharing on their Youtube Channel.

Yeah I know, there are a lot of links to be clicked on in this article, isn’t it marvelous ?
