    Last month, Sergio Mendez got the remix treatment, well, it was only logical to do the same for Herb Alpert. I found some of the remixes too slow for my tastes, but, they do work in an elecro-lounge set.

    Speaking on downtempo, check out the releases by Nightmares on Wax, Alif Tree, Badawi, and William Orbit. Nightmrea treads into the soulful hip hop realm. Alif Tree is downtempo jazzyness with a French vibe. Badawi, is none other than Raz Mesinai – the man who came out with the Ladyman release last year – this release, Safe features strings and low brass over Indian influenced tracks. And lastly, William Orbit’s Hello Waveforms, fills in more ambient / downtempo areas. Yes, Orbit was the one who worked with Madonna on her Ray of Light album, even though Waveforms fills different sonic territory, you can still hear certain signatures that made Ray of Light so good.

    The rest of the releases are self explanitory… Just a note, Six Degrees Traveler 06 seems to be more dance friendly then some of their other releases.

    I can’t forget the Gecko Turner is another world hybrid thing. Check out his take on Subterranean Homesick Blues…

    Stay tuned, I’ve got more stuff coming in April…
