Back again with a new mixtape. This time, it’s something I wanted to put together since very very long. The idea behind this mixtape serie “Sidetracks”  was to put together (in a as seamless way as possible) some of my all time favorite songs of various music styles that I can hear over and over, for some of them without  losing the ability to give these specials shivers.  On the other hand, the selected songs had also to have the potential to be listened at en passant, while for instance at work or doing anything focused. The challenge:  Intense listening pleasure & relaxing entertainment.

This is another Downtempo Mix I finally managed to finish just on time befor christmas. It’s more Jazz/Funk tainted.

To start off the 2010 relaxed with the proper vibes I put together some of my all time Jazzfunk favourites. Most of them are well known classics, but they just rock… I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do.

Second Volume my Sidetracks Mixtapes Serie. The concept is the same, putting together some of my all time favorite songs.

This time I compiled something different than the usual music sound of this blog: an ambient mix. It was a lot of fun putting it together and it turned out to be a nice accompaniment while for instance being at work. I hope you will see it the same way.
