3345 Music – Downtempo Sessons Vol 1
Does what it says on the tin. A set of downtempo tunes, often with a soulful lounge feel. Includes the Grooveblaster tune Angie Dickinson that appeared at Acid Ted back here.
Jennifer Perryman’s Wake Up includes the immortal line “Get down and funky” and is a bit Jazz Club (niiiiiiiiice!). Intensity of Sound has a laid back vibe but a dodgy sax. Grooveblaster manages to get the balance between soul and cool to even out. Castillo & Face provide slightly crisper beats to go with the soulful vocal.
Blurb: 3345 Music presents – Downtempo Sessions Vol. 1 A sultry ride into the night of your life… featuring Jennifer Perryman, Moodswinger, Intensity of Sound and Alexander East. Jennifer Perryman – Wake Up (Moodswinger’s Summer Revival) – Moodswinger makes an immediate impact with broken-lounge-jazz vocal and dub remixes calling to mind Kyoto Jazz Massive and Nu Spirit Helsinki. Intensity of Sound – This Is The Place (Late Night Mix) conjures a romantic moment as your heart begins to beat with the rising warm pads and deep groove. Grooveblaster – Angie Dickinson (Moodswinger’s Vocal Vibe) is a sweet slow down into a spiral of cool beats and vocals that send you into a chilled state of bliss. Castillo & Face feat. Jennifer Perryman – Funky Little Dots (Funk of the Dot Mix) down-groove beauty with Jen scatting over jazzy chords – a perfect nitecap!
