Two very exciting announcements out today for Sydney today which has got me pretty stoked. The first? World’s number 1 DJ Armin van Buuren has announced his Armin Only world tour for his artist album ‘Intense’. The second? World famous beach front bar in Ibiza known for its chill out music and amazing sunsets.
Nabbed myself a copy of this last night and started listening to it and I gotta say, I quite like what I’m hearing. It’s a bit different to my usual postings but I’ve been after something more easy listening for the times you want to unwind.
Ministry of sound describes the compilation as:
Ministry of Sound continue explore the softer side of music by releasing the latest edition in the Chilled series. Afterhours is an alternative take on previous albums combining a mixture of genres & introducing new artists to create a brand new laidback listening experience.
It’s a bit different to the regular chillout sessions that the Ministry of Sound bring out every year, so give it a shot if you find that a bit too slow. The 3 CD compilation has a different sound and vibe per disc so you could probably find something more suitable to your tastes. My personal perception of the music on the compilation would be somewhat like a modern electronic equivalent of Jazz.
Favourite song so far (aside from ‘To Build a Home’ by The Cinematic Orchestra) would be ‘Pictures’ by Benjamin Francis Leftwich.
