Our gift to our people is the fourth installment of our beat submission compilation. We present The Roy Ayers Project Beat Submission Compilation, Volume 4.
In 2007, Motown opened up its vault to an elite group of DJs and producers to flip a few classics. Contributers included ?uestlove & James Poyser (producing under their collective moniker “The Randy Watson Experiment”), Salaam Remi, Jazzy Jeff and King Britt, to name a few.
One unheralded gem included in the mix was the Groove Boutique remix of Smokey Robinson’s sultry classic, “Quiet Storm.” Featuring none other than Roy Ayers with a guest solo, this tune is one of few productions credited by DJ Rafe Gomez. His gentle nu soul ambiance add a serene texture to the classic, and Roy’s tasteful contribution on the vibes make this remix a smooth listen in any weather.
One of our writers, Hayling, explains how he and his select group of friends are keeping the spirit of vinyl alive, as well as developing an in depth understanding to what they’re listening to.
Haylow’s newest mix features 120 minutes of bossa nova, jazz, samba, and lounge music for your listening pleasure. Click the banner for the free download, then sit back and relax, and enjoy what Brasiliana has to offer.
