Reseña del Album (en ingles):
Guidance Recordings returns with the second volume in this acclaimed series exploring the diverse spectrum of sounds emerging from the backroom bars, restaurants and lounges of our planet's urban centers. The sublime selections on Hi Fidelity Lounge Volume 2 are a reflection of the eclectic and open minded musical program that has transformed these venues into a vital and welcome alternative to the corporate club experience. Downbeat masters Thievery Corporation, Alex Gopher, I:cube, Beanfield and more serve up a tantalizing blend of trip hop, jazz, funk, soul, swing, dub, afro, latin and bossa beats custom made for chillin' at your local cocktail lounge or groovin on the dance floor. Licensed to Chill! High profile Parisian funkster Alex Gopher sets the mood with "You, My, Baby & I" the standout cut from his much hyped V2 album. A sublime live jazz funk workout complete with haunting stings, killer bass, electric guitar and an eerie, ethereal vocal hook. Deep, dark and delicious! DC's undisputed champions of the new lounge sound, Thievery Corporation work their magic on "Incident at Gate 7" a gorgeous mid tempo groover. Crisp signature percussion, a hypnotic base line, swaying drums and breathtaking female vocals are the order of the day on this highly under rated single that appeared on their ESL imprint. With a little help from the man like Barry White, Leeds based outfit the Deadbeats serve up some head nodding grooves of the highest order on "Funky For You" a killer selection from their debut album "Lounging" on 20:20 Vision, Pulsating, hypnotic, soul searching grooves guaranteed to have you bouncing on your bar stool while the undeniably catchy vocal hook becomes permanently ingrained in your brain. Acclaimed French producer I:cube keeps the ambient vibes flowing on "Adore" a sublime soundtrack licensed from the always excellent Versatile label. Breezy, cinematic string set the tone for this heavy sci fi bossa beat odyssey that sounds like it was custom made for the soundtrack to a never released Stanley Kubrik movie. The Gotan Project keep things moving on the neo French funk tip with "El Capitalismo Foraneo " an exquisite composition that blows in as smooth as a tropical breeze. Blissful dubbed out trip hop grooves collide with colorful Mediterranean drenched bandoneon solos compliments of master musician Astor Piazolla. Another slice of modern tropical paradise compliments of the exciting Ya Basta label. Promising new Marseille based trio the Troublemakers build the vibe nicely with "Too Old To Die" an ultra groovy retro funk excursion. Swinging drums, warm bubbly fender Rhodes vibes, an infectious bass line and moody orchestral strings that make you feel like you are in a dark dingy bar in Harlem listening to an oldie but a goodie on the jukebox.Glasgow soul brother Michael Hunter, aka Pablo heats it up with Roll Call" a soaring, soul soaked retro funk monster. Rumbling bass vibrations, skin tight drum loops, piercing horns, relentless afro percussion vibes and feel good vocal chants guaranteed to make you get down like your name was James Brown. Funktified! Butti 49, an exciting new band from Stavanger, Norway keep up the tropical dancefloor pressure on "Brasilikum" a brillant composition from their debut Guidance single. Warped live stand up bass, mesmerizing percussion, blinding organ vibes, soaring flutes, melodic guitars and heavenly vocal harmonies combine to create this new bossa masterpiece that is at once dark, menacing, uplifting and infectious. Guaranteed to go down a storm with broken beat champions like Rainer Truby, Gilles Peterson, Phil Asher , Jazzanova etc.Stavanger, Norway strikes again as Butti 49 band member Edvaard reappears with sensational vocalist Galin Maria Ramstad as Elak to deliver the acoustic soul masterpiece "Remember Me: An undeniable funky drum break, rumbling bass and catchy guitars provide the proper setting for Galin's breathy, infectious pop friendly vocals. Lovely!. DIY recording artists Schmoov take it down a notch with their beautiful live ambient jazz funk mix of "Destinations". Warm synths, dramatic strings, crisp drums, funky wah wah guitars and a feel good slap style bass line set the tone on this blissed out ambient monster that just builds and builds. A refreshingly sublime and beautiful soundtrack custom made for chilling on a tropical island and watching the sunset with that someone special. Visionary Compost recording artists Beanfield drop some serious nu dub science upon us with "Planetary Deadlock" a groovy space aged steppers anthem. Hypnotic dubbed out bass vibrations served up in sleazy, far out electro vocoder funk stylee. Parisian chanteuse and multi instrumentalist Samai Farah winds it down ina fine style with "Cool" an exquisitely chic lovers rock riddim ride. Cool and deadly roots reggae vibrations laid down by the man like Adrian Sherwood set the tone for Samia's drop dead gorgeous Mediterranean vocal stylings . Oooh La La ! Imagine King Tubby in the studio Erica Badu and you get the idea.

Putumayo Worl Music


Unas de las grandes satisfacciones de poder navegar en la internet es poder encontrarnos con informacion de las distintas casas productoras y sellos discográficos que realizan la música que nos gusta. Es en esta busqueda que doy con el sello Putumayo...
Sus discos de pura música étnica siempre nos han encantado y nos enseñan que las posibilidades musicales son infinitas, limitarse es pederse de esta riqueza cultural que nos ofrece el mundo... Por esto me encanta el chill out, pues bajo este subgénero musical, es que puedo alcanzar diferentes ritmos y expresiones musico-culturales ..
Aquí lo que encontré sobre Putumayo en su sitio web:
___________________________________________________________________

Putumayo era el nombre de un rio de un valle de Colombia.

Originalmente, Dan Storper funda en New York em 1975 una pequeña tienda dedicada a dsitribuir ropa (ensencialmente etnica y propia de las culturas latinoamericanas), la cual es vendida en 1997.

En este acercamiento cultural, Storper se interesa por la diversidad musical de estos paises y junto a su mejor amigo Michael Krauss fundan en 1993 lo que es la compañía de discos que hoy conocemos: Putumayo Worl Music.

El sello Putumayo, en sus ya 14 años de vida, ha sabido lograr compilaciones de disco melódicos y novedosos de todo el mundo reforzando con esto el lema de la empresa: “guaranteed to make you feel good!” (garantizado para hacerte sentir bien!).

Las Carátulas de sus discos traen ilustraciones y dibujo hechos por la artista Nicola Heindl, cuyo estilo característico, colorido, folklorico, representa una de las metas de Putumayo: conectar el tradicional con el contemporáneo. Combinando música y representaciones visuales atractivas con la comercialización al por menor creativa, Putumayo ha desarrollado una identidad única de la marca de fábrica - una rareza en industria artísticata basada en la música.

Putumayo se considera un pionero y un líder en desarrollar el mercado no tradicional. Una porción grande de sus audiencias de blanco consiste en “Creatives cultural,” un término sociológico y de la forma de vida para 50 millones de norteamericanos y millones más alrededor del mundo. Para alcanzar a estos consumidores, Putumayo ha construido una red propietaria de más de 3.000 libros, regalos, ropa, cafés, bares y otros negocios minoristas que tocan y venden sus CDs, sin perder su fuerte presencia en las tiendas de discos.

DVD Player en el Visor del Carro


Stuck in gridlock again? May as well catch up on Lost while you wait for that tour bus in front of you to start moving, and the Sun Visor Theater can help you out with that. What looks like a regular sun visor flips down to reveal a 7-inch widescreen LCD with built-in DVD player. A TV tuner is built in so you can enjoy the morning news on the way to work (at least until 2009, when analog broadcasting is due to cease in the U.S.), and it'll beam the sound to your car stereo via an FM transmitter.You could question the wisdom of building a display into a car's visor — in full view of the driver — but that's the same kind of nervous-nellie thinking that would have prevented the jumping stilts from ever getting made. Still, you should probably leave the watching to your passengers, assuming the Sun Visor Theater is even legal in your state. And if you're passing through anywhere else, you can always use the built-in camouflage: just flip it up.

Native Instruments Pro-53 v3.00.013 OxYGeN


The PRO-53 carries on the tradition from the legendary days of vintage cult synthesizers. This virtual instrument, fashioned after the Sequential Circuits™ Prophet™-5, provides the sonic properties of the unique originals while meeting the practical requirements of the present day.
Inspired by the immortal sound of the synthesizer giants of the eighties, Native Instruments created the PRO-53 to cast in software those qualities that have been such a major influence on popular music in the past twenty years: brilliance, power, warmth and beauty. Through Native Instruments' creative development philosophy, these timeless aesthetics have now reached the next step in their evolution. The result is the manifest re-definition of an original that was regarded as unrivalled until now.
PRO-53 – The New Version
With the PRO-53, the third generation of the virtual analog classic is now available. The synthesizer emulation has been vastly improved by a new oscillator technology that offers an even warmer and more brilliant sound. In addition the sonic possibilities have been expanded even further with new features like a high-pass filter mode and an invertible filter envelope. The control surface was also reworked and now shines in a whole new light.

El Trip Hop y Massive Attack


Trip Hop (también conocido como El Sonido de Bristol-“Bristol Sound”- o Bristol acid rap) es un término creado por la revista inglesa Mixmag, para describir el trabajo de DJ Shadow, que daba al oyente la impresión de estar en un viaje. Posteriormente, la descripción de Trip Hop fue aplicada a una corriente musical de mediados de los años 1990.

Trip Hop es música electrónica downtempo que salió de la escena británica de hip hop y house. Se caracteriza por el uso de breakbeats, pero a una velocidad lenta (entre 60 y 120 bpm) en comparación con otros tipos de música que emplean este recurso; siendo una combinación de hip hop, reggae, soul, jazz y música electrónica downtempo. Proviene de Bristol (Ciudad portuaria de la costa oeste de Inglaterra); y se hizo famoso con artistas como Massive Attack, Portishead, Thievery Corporation, Tricky y otros grupos un poco más orientados hacia el rock, como Ruby, el Californiano DJ Shadow y el británico Howie B. Morcheeba y Glideascope se asocian a menudo con este sonido.

El sonido característico de este estilo se puede ver en la canción de Massive Attack “Unfinished Sympathy” del album "Blue Lines", uno de los temas más destacados de los últimos tiempos, de acuerdo a distintas encuestas de MTV2, NME y otras revistas y críticos.

Música do Bem


Sabemos poco sobre quien es su administrador (suponemos que se llama Bem), pero el Blog " Musica do Bem" (esta en portugués y muy probable que sea de Brasil) es uno de los mejores blog que hacen este tipo de entrada.

En él puedes encontrar albumes completos de cualquier tipo de musica, predominando la musica brasileña y electrónica en general.

Sacred Spirit, Vol. 9: Bluesy Chill Out


Review from higheroctave records:
Ultra-hip, cutting edge Euro electronic flavors create a uniquely modern twist on a classic American musical art form on Bluesy Chill Out. This album is the ninth in a series of best selling groove and heavy ambience Sacred Spirit theme recordings masterminded by German-born studio wizard The Brave and released in the U.S. by Higher Octave Music. Sacred Spirit highlights over the past decade include Indigo Spirit, platinum selling Sacred Spirit I, Grammy nominated (Best New Age Album) Sacred Spirit II, Moroccan Spirit and most recently, Classical Spirit. The Brave’s goal in creating Bluesy Chill Out was to offer a fresh perspective on the blues, thereby, as he says, “dragging it out of the ghetto” of the past and into the present. He collaborates with fellow Ibiza island resident Dave “BK” Jeffs, a Northern Ireland native and former street musician who plays regularly at a local club named Teatro Perera. Each track was created organically, with Jeffs (who also sings and plays flute and harmonica) composing exciting improvisational slide and steel guitar riffs as a foundation for The Brave to build his trademark synthesis upon. “I wanted to create a contemporary recording which would draw on classic blues traditions but combine them with the Sacred Spirit tradition of chill out groove and ambience,” he says. “Dave lives on the island and I’ve known him for years as a member of Eric Harmsen’s band that performs at the club Teatro Perera. He’s a great blues guitarist and harmonica player. The fun part of these recordings is working with new people I haven’t collaborated with before. I invited Dave to lay down lines, riffs, melodies, whatever he came up with that connected to the blues. He’s had this amazing life that perfectly reflects that of the great bluesmen.

Stress at Work: Management and Prevention


Encontre esta joya de e-book para vencer el estres laboral (enemigo #1 del estilo Chill out)... Aunque la version es en ingles, espero que lo puedan disfrutar...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Work-related stress and resulting sickness absence costs the UK economy about £3.7 billion every year (HSE research). In this jargon-free guide, Jeremy Stranks explains what stress is and what causes it, how people respond to stress and cope with it, how stress can be evaluated and managed and what employers legal responsibilities are.

Written for managers, HR professionals and safety reps, the emphasis of this book is strongly on practical advice and solutions. The author provides simple tools to measure and assess stress and shows how to deal with a range of stress-creating workplace situations, such as bullying, harassment and violence at work. The book also details how to implement a stress management system that complies with the new HSE Management Standards to avoid civil claims and criminal sanctions by the enforcement agencies.

End of chapter key points draw out the implications of the preceding text for the employer and an executive summary shows the main aspects that senior management have to be aware of. In addition, the book contains forms and templates to help with managing stress. These are also available for download on the companion website.

Stress at Work will also be a valuable reference for students on the following courses as part of modules concerned with Human Factors: NEBOSH Certificate and Diploma courses, MSc courses in Occupational Health and Safety Management, IOSH Managing Safely, British Safety Council diploma and NVQ level 3 and 4 courses in Occupational Safety and Health.

Jeremy Stranks has 40 years of experience in occupational safety and health enforcement, management, consultancy and training.

He is a founding member of NEBOSH and has lectured on numerous training courses on all aspects of health and safety. His company Safety and Hygiene Consultants offers companies advice in drawing up Health and Safety policies, writing risk assessments and audit procedures.

* Jargon-free introduction to work-related stress issues, ideal for managers, HR professionals and safety reps

* Gives practical advice on how to implement a stress management system

* Helps employers avoid expensive court cases brought by employees or enforcement officers

InkaTerra de Miki Gonzalez


En el cd Café Inkaterra de música chill-out andina, las mezclas han sido realizadas por Miki Gonzáles usando música andina y amazónica con excelentes resultados.

El Artista

Miki Gonzalez. Nacido en España, pero tempranamente vino al Perú donde reside actualmente. Tuvo una preparación musical académica, pero siempre gustó de la música afroperuana.

A fines de los setentas comienza a experimentar con el blues y la música tradicional de la costa peruana de raíces africanas, conocida como música afroperuana o simplemente "afro". En la década de los ochenta, decide comenzar una carrera profesional en la música popular y forma una banda; muchos de sus integrantes luego se harían populares en la escena rockera peruana tiempo después (como "Pelo" Madueño, que formaría La Liga del Sueño). Miki Gonzales tomaría un rumbo que oscilaba entre el new wave y la música propiamente peruana. Su punto cumbre en popularidad llegaría con canciones como "Akundún" (etno-rock de fusión afro-peruana) y "Hoja verde" (etno-rock de fusión andina, en alusión al consumo tradicional de la hoja de coca). Sus primeros éxitos, como "Lola" y "Vamos a Tocache", también son inmensamente populares.

En cuanto al tema "Hoja Verde", éste fue vetado injustamente por la cadena MTV (en español) por considerar que hacia apología del consumo de cocaína. Difusor de los ritmos negros del Perú con la familia Ballumbrosio (músicos afroperuanos), ha rescatado el uso del cajón peruano para producir música internacional. Ha estudiado la música afroperuana y andina desde los años 70.

Actualmente se ha dedicado a la música electrónica, fusionándola con ritmos andinos. Producto de esta fase son sus tres últimos álbumes: "Cafe Inkaterra" (2004), "Etnotronics: Apu Sesions" (2005) e "Iskay: Inka Beats" (2006).

Chambao...

De los co-fundadores de la formación ya sólo queda La Mari, vocalista del grupo, que se ha hecho rodear de nuevos músicos para continuar con Chambao. Actualmente, La Mari, recuperada de un cáncer, ha participado en el álbum de Ricky Martin MTV Unplugged cantando a dúo con él "Tu Recuerdo".
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chambao se fundó en 2001 en la Noche de San Juan - noche del solsticio de verano - adoptando el nombre que se le da a las estructuras temporales o permanentes erguidas en la playa para protegerse del sol. Al año la banda publicó su primer álbum, una compilación de versiones y canciones propias de flamenco, cuyas texturas se solapan con calmados ritmos electrónicos.

La música del álbum Flamenco Chill fue percibida como incursión en un nuevo género, considerándose el “flamenco chill” como una creación de Chambao. Aunque la electrónica suene con más sutileza en las grabaciones siguientes de 2003 y 2005, Endorfinas en la Mente y Pokito a Poko respectivamente, muchas canciones siguen siendo transportadas por ritmos chill out con típicos ecos de trip hop y drum & bass.

Al definir su propia música la banda no solo fue osada y original, sino que se distinguió entre otras de la misma generación que también utilizaron la fusión de flamenco con diferentes estilos, como Ojos de Brujo, cuyas canciones emplearon el dub e hip hop, más que la electrónica.

Las canciones originales de la banda celebran persistentemente la cultura de playa. Combinada con el acento y la escala flamenca de la cantante La Mari, le prestan al grupo un sabor tangiblemente Andaluz.

La influencia de estos elementos sobre la impresión general probablemente es mejor transmitida en el sitio Web de la banda: “la definición de su propia música no entra en conflicto con su espíritu de naturaleza libre y su necesidad de hacer crecer y evolucionar su propio estilo y lenguaje musical, que tiene gusto a sal y acarrea los sonidos de las costas oceánicas”.

Ciertamente el chill del flamenco chill tiene otra nota: Las canciones originales de la banda celebran persistentemente la cultura de playa. Combinada con el acento y la escala flamenca de la cantante La Mari, le prestan al grupo un sabor tangiblemente Andaluz. Como la lírica de otros músicos contemporáneos, incluyendo a Manu Chao y Macaco, la de Chambao frecuentemente trata de la mar. Además en cada publicación aparecen versiones imaginativas de otras grandezas del flamenco, como el trabajo inolvidable sobre Volando Voy, cantado en su momento por el gran Camaron.

Discografía:

"Flamenco Chill" (2002) (varios artistas).
"Endorfinas en la mente" (2003)
"Pokito a poko" (2005)
"Caminando 2001-2006" (2006)

Jose Padilla: El padre espiritual del Chill Out




Quienes han seguido la musica Chill Out desde sus inicios saben que decir que Jose Padilla es el "Padre espiritual del Chill Out" es solo un diminuto reconocimiento a lo que el artista ha hecho por este estilo musical.

JOSÉ PADILLA
Nació en España en 1955. Su padre fue obrero de construcción y su abuelo se ganaba la vida tocando guitarra: una familia humilde proveniente del sur que emigró a Gerona.

Trabajó como camarero en el barrio gótico de Barcelona, en donde tuvo sus primeros contactos con los platos. Sus inicios como DJ en los años 70 se ubican en las discotecas de Costa Brava, un barrio deprimido del norte de España…

Para 1975 se traslada a la isla de Ibiza donde comienza trabajar en la discoteca “Es paradís”. Años más tarde tuvo la oportunidad de abrir su propio negocio “Museum”, pero el mismo se fue a la quiebra cuando su socio se quitó la vida.

Para sobrevivir los años siguiente, alquiló un puesto en el mercado hippie de Ibiza en donde vendía los casettes con sus remezclas. Estos cassettes comenzaron a ser tocados en Café del Mar teniendo muy buena aceptación con la clientela del lugar. Es así como los dueños de Café del Mar en 1991 deciden contratarlo como DJ.

Padilla es el precursor del “balearic beats”, una especie de mezcla musical de moda en Inglaterra, pero su mayor logro es que se le considera el Padre del Chill Out, a través de sus series de discos compilatorios de este ritmo bajo su residencia en Café Del Mar en Ibiza.

Padilla ha explorado toda mezcla de música, desde el jazz, el flamenco, bossa nova (ritmo que lo cautivó desde joven), ritmos latinos y otros más… Sus fusiones muestran el espíritu de un artista que no se impone límites culturales ni musicales, un artista realmente libre…

Su álbum en solitario y debut “Souvenir” (1998), se considera una joya del chill out. Su segundo álbum “Navigator” (2001) es un reflejo del espíritu explorador y aventurero de Padilla al momento de sumergirse en la música, lo que lo llevó en el 2002 a sacar una versión especial del mismo.

Es así como el DJ de los años 70 se convirtió en un DJ de primera fila. Su cuarto trabajo en solitario “Bella Música” (2004), trae consigo un torrente de emociones que Padilla ha logrado capturar “mágicamente” en un pomo musical.

También produjo el disco de la banda sonora de la película “El Sueño de Ibiza” (2002).
