This is a quintessential trip hop record. Hip hop beats with blue moods and jazzy instruments. Lamentation on life withouth words.
Moody ambient jazz and the occasional romantisches saxophone.
Very laidback, very smooth, very relaxing, very laying around on a terrace in summer. Hiphop and Jazz and soul and funk.
That jazz techno, on the level I expected. Apparently acoustic techno is a thing on last.fm and the top artist is Brandt Brauer Frick. (The second one is Dawn of Midi, so now I’m intrigued.)
So, this is jazz. Although I also think this is post rock. And modern classical composition. And has some electronic music rhythm to it sometimes. Anyway this is beautiful.
Some tracks are not for me on this one, but the one titled Law is just amazing. Post-rock meets breakbeat meets jazz.
Hugely satisfying and absolutely relaxed mix of tracks through the hiphop-soul-groovy-nujazz axis. This is why I listen to good selections like the DJ Kicks or Late Night Tales releases in the first place. I mean not the specific genre but the top-notch selection.
There is soul.
After watching Mr. Robot’s S02E08 and heard Portia Doubleday sing Everybody Wants to Rule the World in a karaoke bar I got totally hooked on the tune and just couldn’t let it go from my head. And since the whole thing started with someone else singing the song and it was not the original Tears For Fears version, I started searching for even more renditions of this track.
This is how I came across the 2014 Spotify Landmark recording of the song with the original band just 30 years after and it’s an awesome video to watch, also the guys just totally kill it even 30 years later. This video is right here below, and then there are some more covers after it that I found interesting.

Wow, this is truly epic. Space travel through the galaxy.
