ASTRALWERKS & BLUE NOTE CHILL OUT

Downtempo electronica meets jazz-infused sounds in a new series of Lo-Fi compilations from two Capitol Music Group labels, Astralwerks and Blue Note Records.

The series debuts Friday with the release of Bluewerks, Vol. 1: Up Down Left Right, an eight-track collection introduced by BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong that features established and up-and-coming Lo-Fi creators including Zmeyev, Sebastian Kamae, tysu, Saib, G Mills, hiyasu and Phlocalyst.

“Lo-Fi beats is a highly evocative form of music with its roots clearly planted in the chordal harmonics and rhythms of jazz,” said Blue Note President Don Was. “The level of artistry involved in creating these tracks fits right in with Blue Note’s mission of making expressive and authentic music.”

Toby Andrews, General Manager of Astralwerks, said, “Together with Don and the team, we feel we’ve found an ideal blend of music for all occasions—studying, relaxing, chilling out and everything in between. Our ambition is to update with future volumes regularly and build Bluewerks into a destination for the space, backed by the biggest labels in electronic music and jazz, respectively.”

We think we’ve found the perfect soundtrack for a freshly acquired ounce of OG Kush.
