Crushin' on You

This upload features tracks from User's Atmosphere, Gwyn Jay Allen, Guardner, Frank Borell, • Interstellar and more.

The Golden Age of Downtempo offered a specific kind of deep lounge song or session commonly referred to as a 'babymaker' -- so fundamentally sexy that it all but undressed you. Zero 7 was a band that had 'babymaker' tied to their name, but the best tracks could be much deeper: bumpin’ rhythms paired with irresistible melodies and layers of sonic effects to make your mind and skin tingle.

If expressing sexual bliss is one of the proper uses of music, then the downtempo of 1998 - 2005 was supremely proper. In the present session, I've blended some well-loved classic tracks with lesser-known offerings -- for every top-shelf tune from Omni Trio, User's Atmosphere or Groove Armada, there's a more obscure gem that takes you to the same place, and it's time to air some of those out.

And you? You'll want to listen to Crushin' on You 'in company' ... good company, of course. You've got an hour -- best get to it. Those babies won't make themselves, you know =;^)

This is the flavor that attracted my attention of you on MixMeister Radio a while back. My steppers' mix elsewhere was inspired by that style that featured prominent backbeats at a decidedly slower tempo. I will have to dig into my bag of tricks to facilitate a method to download this Gem in spite of any obstacles ;) - The Original Artists should be proud that their creations have been elevated to this level.
