Michael Mayer – Mantasy

Easy listening mid-tempo house and lazy chillout music, which doesn’t strive to be in the foreground. Good for work, a run while you want to think about stuff and not focus on the music, and Saturday afternoon garden parties with sunshine.

Blond:ish – Welcome To The Present

Now this one is suprising and interesting. Debut longplayer with a blend of moods but mostly focusing on slow tempo, although even while keeping the pace below the mid-range still offers quite a palette from field recording style ambient through laid-back downtempo to choking steamy techno. Then halfway through the album we arrive to the mid tempo range and mostly keep the speed steady going forward. I better enjoyed the second half with its techno vibe, but the album as a whole has a well orchestrated journey for sure.
