If atmospheric worldly downtempo beats are your thing, check out the new album from Sven Van Hees. We’ve enlisted Sven in the past on remix duty for our very own Chuck Love. The Belgium producer just dropped a new album entitled, “Maverick”. The album is full of tropical worldly electronica lounge music that any fan of Naked Music, Bitter:Sweet, Ananda Project, Bajka, Tosca, Samantha James, and Hotel Costes would appreciate. (Check out “You Got A Hold Of Me”.)
The album is out now on Sven’s own Your Lips label.

Andy Caldwell is back with a new artist album titled, “Obsession”. On the new album, Caldwell drifts away from the soulful sounds that he’s known for and instead draws inspiration from a much more European inspired sound. The deep electro house sound is all over the album. These 10 tracks showcase Caldwell’s pop songwriting skills and features collaborations from Mr. V., Femke, and long time fellow Soulstice member, Gina Rene. “My sound has been changing over the last few years,” Caldwell says. I got more into the electronic sound with the European house scene and wanted to express that in an album. I was really feeling stagnant creatively and broke out of the soulful house shackles about a year ago.”
“Obsession” is now out on iTunes as an exclusive pre-release and hits all over on 10/20. Click here to purchase.

Last month we brought you a free Om:Cast from one of our favorite disco house bands, Crazy P. This month we have something really special for you. A mix like this is extremely rare as this artist is very protective of his live sets and almost never allows anyone to record him. It is with utmost pleasure that we present Om:Cast002 featuring Om’s OG artist and one of the greatest DJs in the world, Mark Farina.
This mix is very special to us being that it was recorded at Om’s 15 Year Anniversaryevent in the very city that gave birth to Om by one of the original artist of Om. Hope you guys enjoy!
Keep checking back for a new podcast each month. We have lots of surprises in store.
