Sunday Groove: Six Degrees Records

Six Degrees Records is a "an eclectic, independent music label that produces genre-bending and accessible recordings" out of California (from their Twitter page @sixdegreesrcrds). They've brought us tracks from artists like Bebel Gilberto, Karsh Kale, DJ Spooky, The Outernationalists, Alice Russell and more. The sounds from this label, ranging from bossa nova, funk and folk, simultaneously predict the future while basking in the musical aesthetics of the past - their artists pull much from the history of their culture and influences while setting the bar for what comes next. Here is a sampling of tracks from Six Degrees Records - "Makes Me Happy," a bossa folk dreamer from Brasilian duo Undersea Poem ; "Back Home (Kraak & Smaak Remix)," a funky Brasilian electro beat from Zuco 103, and various funk tracks from Friday's edition of Six Degrees Traveler, the labels weekly radio show produced by one of the company's co-founders. All of these tracks can be downloaded at their site or blog Global Noize .
