Welcome To The Sunday Soundtrack – 19 Jul 09 (UltraChilled)

Welcome listeners….

I hope this blog post finds you well. It’s a mellow Sunday evening here, nice way to round out a busy day. In the background, here in studio, is the latest mix from fleep, Summer, some very soulful global deep house….definitely suitable vibe for me any day of the week.

Speaking of week, the last one was extremely busy, just coming off a big software design review at work, and now getting ready for the resulting work thereof. This brings me to the desire to do a laid back mix, featuring an artist who I consider to me definitive example of chill….Afterlife. Here is a small excerpt from the official MySpace page:

“Steve Miller is Afterlife. The top UK Downtempo producer. The most played artist in Ibiza, at least at the beach bars and anywhere into lush, lilting, chilled and totally saturated sounds of impeccable taste. He is the sunset phenomenon, purveyor of deep and soulful music….”

The words above provide an impeccable description of the essence of Afterlife. Frankly I think the music will speak far better than anywords ever could. That being said, here’s what I have on tap for this episode:

1. Lovedub – Afterlife/The Afterlife Lounge
2. Clear Blue Sky – Afterlife/The St. Regis Chill & Groove
3. A Way (Original) – Afterlife/The Album, the Single Remixes, the Journey… Disc 1
4. Deeper – Into Places – Afterlife/Simplicity 2000
5. Breather 2000 (Arithunda Mix) – Afterlife/The St. Regis Chill & Groove
6. Speck of Gold – Afterlife/The St. Regis Chill & Groove
7. Return to Margin (Afterlife Mix) – Afterlife/The Afterlife Lounge
8. Shine – AfterLife ft Cathy Battistessa/The Blue Ba
9. Miracles – Afterlife

You can find much more about Afterlife at the following sites:

Thanks for listening as usual, I highly appreciate it. I’ll be taking the next weekend off for some PRIME relaxation, but plan on returning in August. In the meantime, in case you missed the post, you can help me develop the playlist for the next Sunday Soundtrack. If you’re so inclined, check out the details here.

I hope whenever you’re listening to this, your in a cool state of mind. Look for you next time…

peace and blessings…

F!

Hey people…

Hope all is good, and that is including your weekend. My partner and I had a recording session, more so a work session for one of the tracks from our upcoming last night. In studio was one of our vocalists, Solomon “Solo” Parker, workin’ out his part of a duet I wrote called Starting Over. I decided to bring you in on a small bit of what we were doing, and a lil bit of a blooper (we like recording those) as well.

Pretty happy about how the end monologue is developing:

For some reason, my digital audio interface had the hiccups (crazy…broken… 😉 ):

The CD project is moving along, though it’s been a long timecoming. We plan on dropping it before the end of the year. Stay tuned for the official website launch

peace….
