Ghost Order - Hollows EP

Ghost Order is an artist based in Britain, currently remixing and designing beautiful downtempo melodies. I love tracks that have driving percussion that makes your head nod with very chill melodies and layers. I stumbled across an older Ghost Order album called Hollows (EP). The title track is my favorite, with light piano over percussion and reverberating bass. It's a great straight forward song - Hollows - that I can listen to over and over again.

Jeff Oster is a California based trumpet player who contributes to and has released his own downtempo and chillout albums. He recently shared some of his tracks from "Surrender" - a very nice downtempo album he released in 2011. The album is a collection of tracks that make me feel like I should be in a beach sunset, slight breeze while listening to them. Check out two highlights - remixes and edits by none other than the legendary Chris Coco and AfterLife Chill:

Adam Warped Downtempo Mix - Strange Days / Hypersonic Radio

Stumbled across this beauty of a downtempo mix by Adam Warped, selectah supreme for Hypersonic Radio in Austin, TX. Oh, i'll be in Austin next weekend and hope to catch some live mixing!

Nice mix of electronic downtempo with a bit of Texas whimsy and twang sprinkled in.
