Congo Sanchez – Vibrations Feat. Ini Kimoze


Downtempo free download from an associate of Thievery Corporation.

Congo Sanchez has worked with Thievery Corporation as DJ and drummer. And you can really hear that in this free download. It’s built around dub drums and deep toasting. I feel the need to say “Irie” even though I have not the faintest idea what it means. Apologies.

And the album (stream)


Blurb: Herb Records 2013, which will be officially released on November 5, 2013, includes the musical works of Congo Sanchez, Hydrophonics, and Groove Status. Their complementary skills and sounds are compiled into a 40 minute mix – bringing the vibe of the Herb Records collective to your eardrums for the first time. This organic approach to studio production pays homage to classic downtempo, trip/hip-hop, and dub reggae, with a modern blend of moombah, dance, and world-funk rhythms. This compilation sets the tone for the launch of Herb Records, the music label founded by Congo Sanchez.

Congo’s time touring and recording with Thievery Corporation has had an incredible influence on his sound; his multifaceted experiences shine through the aesthetic delivered in this mix. His new sounds accentuate his drumming roots, showing a progression into a percussion-heavy mix for the dance floor. Hydrophonics, an experienced producer and live-looping genius, adds a crisp layer of consistently fresh sounds and urban-inspired beats. His track, “Sunrise,” is an awakening introduction to the mix. Groove Status is a master of all that is funky, with a groove-hop flavor that adds a smooth bounce to electronic dance tunes. His first track enters the mix at about twelve minutes in, with a sexy vibe that lives up to its name, “Love Sauce.” The three artists together make up the high-grade sound that is Herb Records.

  1. I believe ‘irie’ means good in the Jamaican vernacular. That’s not an excuse to say it.
