Good Evening Space Travelers 2009 08-07-09

The_Chola_Good_Evening_Space_Travelers_2009_080109

This month’s podcast is a continuation of my “Space Traveler” series and is once again dedicated to the folks over at Lounge Radio. I try to add an episode to this series every year and I figured it was time to slow things down, and, bring out the deeper side of downtempo for this month’s show.

I took a trip to Berlin in July and had an amazing time. I had the opportunity to visit a few clubs, lounges, and bars. It really seems that Germans love their Minimal Electronica. I was pretty surprised just how much that trip influenced my song selection this month. Almost inadvertently I found myself seeking out deeper, minimal types of music to mix along with ambient and chill out tunes. I am quite pleased with what came about from that subconscious decision. After listening to the complete episode, I am quite sure that Berlin has forever left its mark in my heart.

This month’s chillout podcast includes a wonderful selection of deeper chillout music, ambient, and what do you know… even a few minimal tunes. 🙂 Enjoy!

01. Vector Lovers– Rusting Cars & Wild Flowers

Okay, it is time to bring things back home and slow the tempo down some again. This month I bring us “Back to The Lounge” with some great samba, bossanova, some awesome covers, and overall, just a loungey feel. Pour a martini and take a load off, it is time to chill out.

I am planning a trip to Berlin in the very near future and would love some recommendations of lounges, bars, clubs, and record stores to visit with a jazz, downtempo, or lounge, influence. If any of my listeners from Germany have some insight, please email me at chola @ podomatic.com. Thanks! 🙂

Jazz Steppin’ 2009 05-01-09

The_Chola_Jazz_Steppin_2009_050109

 So this month I decided it was time to finally follow up 2007’s Jazz Steppin’ episode with another dose of chilled out drum and bass. Jazz Steppin’ is really about kicking up the tempo a bit but still maintaining a chilled out vibe. Lots of jazz, r&b, samba, and funk combined with intelligent drum and bass music.

A lot of Drum n Bass is hard and edgy these days. It seems that you really have to dig to find the jazzier stuff which is a real shame. However, spend some time digging and you will stumble across some great artists still producing music with a softer, more “musical” sound. Heavy DNB is fine for doing some serious “dancing” or for working out. However, the jazzier stuff is what I want for sofa surfing and just chilling out. 😉

Here is this month’s tracklist…

01. Galapago- La Maquina y Yo
02. Sardi– Primavera
03. Zuco 103– Volta (Bossacucanova Remix)
04. Dan Marshall– Fools Paradise
05. The Funktastics– Crocodile Skin
06. Bazeado– Segunda Feira (Bungle Remix)
07. Mutt– She Likes It
08. Shapeshifter– Equinox
09. The Amalgamation Of Soundz– 63rd Suite
10. Komatic– Untold Stories
11. Brother– Ever After
12. Phat Playaz– Down Town
13. Madmen & Poets– Afraid Of Jazz
15. Ror-Shak- Lisa’s Song ft. Lisa Shaw
