Downbeat Lounge Selection Vol 5 - March 2016

Here's 15 new tracks, selected and curated by EROK, just for you. This is the Downbeat Lounge Selection - Vol 5 (March 2016). Meant to chill and listen and enjoy as you see fit. This selection features beautiful new bass and melody from Monstercat - one of my favorite labels. There are two Monstercat tracks in this selection - "Lark" by Direct, and "Clouds" by Loosed. Both are airy songs with reverberating baselines and organic, natural melodies - nice 70-90 BPM brooders.

"Musical Genocide" (Grzly Adams Edit) by Gregory Porter is a jazzy break beat - straight forward and groovy jam. And my other favorite in this selection is "Platforming" by Kneebody and Daedalus, an amazing collaboration that I got to see live a few weekends ago at Le Poisson Rouge - my favorite venue in New York City. Enjoy!

I posted my latest downtempo mix --> Crescendo Breaks. The title refers to how I approach my mixes like stories - I start w/ a foundation, layering on sounds, themes, and creating an arc that lends itself to listening to the mix the whole way through.

This mix is a selection of tracks that starts out chilled, with some hip hop beats, and crescendos into funky and electronic breaks. Featuring tracks by Gramatik, Thievery Corporation, Nickodemus, Mr. Scruff,  and remixes of Fugees, Nelly and Missy Elliott.
