About the show

Playing tracks by

Cool Breeze, Desmond Williams, Shanel, Gerd, Cinematic orchestra and more.

Cinematic Orchestra does grown-up downtempo … serious chops and a pared-down style that eases over the line to hypnotic whenever possible. Their ‘Channel One Suite’, a truly iconic piece and another of those primary zeitgeist tracks, captures the downtempo sensibility in a single standards-setting gesture. A funkier vibe colors most of the rest of the set, manifesting in the reggae references of Desmond Williams, hip hop from Cool Breeze, DJ Vadim and Sarah Jones, palm trees at sunset from Boozoo Bajou, and R&B shadings from Rae & Christian. And don't imagine the ticking clock motif is accidental. This is all familiar terrain in Downtempoland, like the low urgent voices of the singers that we've come to expect, to require.

This is the last of the mmRadio Retrospective mixes -- the first, too big an upload for Mixcloud, is available exclusively on mmRadio ‘til Jan 2011 -- http://bit.ly/gMbJx5 -- and more info about the series is available at http://www.beatconscious.org
