WS010: Air Zaïre – Love 94

love94-Recovered1026

Brooklyn-based producer Air Zaïre is making his highly anticipated return following the 2014 release of “Sanibel ft. Patrick Baker.”

Featuring original vocals by newcomer Daniela Cabrera,”Love 94″ pays tribute to Air Zaïre’s favorite ’90s smooth jazz and soft rock radio station from his South Florida hometown.

Whereas the airy “Sanibel” focused on whisking away a love interest to a remote island, “Love 94” is a hopeful tropical anthem about second chances and winning back a lost love.

“Can’t let you turn around and walk away, baby”, sings Daniela before proclaiming, “Someday we could be together / But we’re alone tonight.”

Accompanying the release is a pair of club remixes from Mighty Mouse and AIMES, and a french touch reimagining by Douze.

Vocals recorded by Max Peterson. Mastered by Aman Ellis. Additional mixing by Michael Banks and Dan Diaz

Paraphernalia: an Introduction to Mild Peril

Christopher Gilbert makes retro leaning and faux new age cosmic music. By Faux new age I mean his music could easily be mistaken for something Manuel Göttsching or Tangerine Dream was doing in the 70s. His bandcamp has a huge catalog of cosmic synth wave and is definitely worth a listen.

Daniele Baldelli & DJ Rocca – Kachiri EP

Out today is an EP from a couple of legends. As Italy’s answer to NYC’s Mancuso and Larry Levan, Daniele Baldelli & DJ Rocca helped shape the left-field Cosmic/ Balearic scene and influence numerous artist. Their mutli-genre DJ sets in the 70s and 80s impacted their own productions that would come later in the 90s. Fast forward several years and the duo is still making forward thinking cosmic music. Their new EP is stays true to their sound, bringing a tinge of other-worldy weirdness and just a touch of dark funk. Out now on NEIN Records.
