From the German net label Sofasound comes Schilli San. Smooth Situations is indeed what this release is all about; it doesn’t get much smoother. I once heard that if the mirror inside the hubble space telescope was scaled up to the size of the Atlantic ocean, the imperfections would only be a couple thousandths of an inch high. Thats how smooth these seven tracks are. Jazz influences combine with slightly glitchy drum tracks and acoustic instruments are mixed with synthesized instruments and samples that drive the whole thing home. Smooth Situations is a don’t miss release.
Tru Thoughts is a netlabel that features artists such as Bonobo and Quantic. They have a freebie page as well as a podcast. Check out the free tracks, the four that are there now will be taken down on March 20. Four quality tracks of downtempo chilledness. Get ’em before they’re gone. Then check back for more.
