On behalf of all creatures of flesh and blood for whom the cold is a discouragement, I conjure this tardy Spring: Return the warmth!
It's been such a long winter, some places are still struggling with snow on the ground -- here's an attempt at enticing Spring to return: gathering together some of the reliably warming tracks from Downtempo's Golden Age, along with newer tunes that generate some heat of their own, hoping I can free you to throw off the covers and feel the sun on your skin once again ...
Among the special tracks gathered here like fuel for a fire are classics from Projections, Silent Poets, Troublemakers, Roxy Music, Bliss and Coldcut's epic Autumn Leaves remix. Recent releases are represented by a track from Bonobo's 2013 set, The North Borders, as well as lovely covers from Adele and from Piers Faccini, Camille and Dom La Nena.
Come here, sit close, and listen: Soon you'll stop your shivering. Spring is here again - let's revel in it.
