Heavenly Volume 20 (TripHop, Lounge, Jazz)

Lazy tunes for balmy nights, static Sundays, BBQ chilling and car cruising. This is Heavenly.

Fed up of fruitlessly searching for decent original house music recently I decided to go downtempo for a nice change. There’s a real mixture of genres in this one – kicking off with mixed Triphop moving through Hiphop to Soul, Jazz, Broken Beat and finally a Dubstep anthem to finish.

My faves have to be “But I Do” as well as Indigo Jam Unit’s awesome Jazz belter “Sepia”. Just superb and so unexpected!

Hope you don’t mind.
