ESL(18th Street Lounge) Music needs no introduction to those who like their music influenced from all around the world, jazzy/funky/downtempo.
Surely Thievery Corporation is leading the movement,a few of their remixes and tracks find their spot here. I start off with selections from recent releases, a high dose of African rhythms. Then Chris Joss, "the man of greatest talent", gets it as funky as possible, he surely carries a whole band in his own hands,mind &soul. Ursula 1000 is very inviting for body-shaking, but put your style on! If you wonder what Italian composer P.Piccioni is doing here,look at the ESL's treatment of Easy Tempo label. The set also includes two tracks from another DC label,Rhythm&Culture, which is a sister label carrying ESL influences.
Covering both the current and the past of the prolific label has been fun, and the high tempo of the mix will surely get you moving!
