I thought I'd share this with you all, seeing as the particular record label I found it on have their entire back catalogue on MP3. I felt that this one in particular was worth posting, something to sit back and chill to.

Courtesy of Monotik Records:

So, we continue with the Mono211 sublabel tradition of releasing 'good, but unclassifiable' material that takes both breaks and chillout influences on-board. And this time, we were delighted to get "Aze", an unexpected submission from the mysterious Izmar, and a whole album of delightfully groovy, beautifully programmed jazzy techno/chillout.

Right from the slow build of "Aze-01", it's clear that there's something different going on here, with possible comparisons to the divine Fila Brazillia and a little of the new-wave UK chill-out of Lemon Jelly or Zero 7. Other highlights include the super-jazzy funk of "Aze-03", the haunting melodies drifting around "Aze-05", and the beautiful flute-led groove of the album-closer, "Aze-08", alongside the wonderful improvised keyboard riffs flecked sumptuously all over the album.

And with another recent Mono211 artist in the same vein getting major-label interest, seems like hazing over with "Aze" is a great alternative to too much bleep in your diet for our 'breath of fresh air' sublabel. Better don your headphones and prepare to be enchanted.

The above is an extract from my fictional novel, "The random postings of Edame".

In the beginning was the word. And man could not handle the word, and the hearing of the word, and he asked God to take away his ears so that he might live in peace without having to hear words which might upset his equinamity or corrupt the unblemished purity of his conscience.

And God, hearing this desperate plea from His creation, wrinkled His mighty brow for a moment and then leaned down toward man, beckoning that he should come close so as to hear all that was about to be revealed to him.

"Fuck you," He whispered, and frowned upon the pathetic supplicant before retreating to His heavens.

for some reason, the tracklist links don't work, but if you go to the site listed at the top, and find the artist, you're all good.
pretty groovy
