DescriptionA year ago, Silk Sofa released an EP by the Finnish brothers Orion and J.Shore called "Goodbye Earth". Orion, a successful radio host on the Finnish national radio YleX, and his brother, J.Shore, treated us to some gorgeous chillout songs back then, and now it's time for some new interpretations of these tracks.
From France comes Eskadet, an artist who has established a well-known sound in the chillout / downtempo genre, and released numerous songs on Lemongrassmusic. For this release, Eskadet has turned "Your Highness" into his own unique style. Lush string lines are the first things we hear, and soon percussion elements, as well as an intriguing stuttered vocal effect, are added. Various synth sweeps and rhodes in the background create a stunning atmosphere, and the distinctive bassline addition later in the track contributes a spicier touch.
Finnish artist Tokyo Boulevard is another artist that has a stunning sound and a impressive résumé; multiple compilation tracks on Bonzai and well-received originals on Subtraxx, amongst others labels. For Silk Sofa, he has created both a chillout and a downtempo remix of "Deep Blue". Big ocean waves that introduce the chillout remix hint that we are indeed near a 'deep blue'. Tremendous and soothing pad layers, as well as enjoyable percussion elements, soon emerge, and as the track progresses, additional comforting layers are included. The key changes to the downtempo remix are a lovely beat, a more energetic theme part, and a fresh vocal effect, all of which provide additional texture to the track.
