Quantic’s Magnetica:
The music on Magnetica is a bridge between day and night, old and new, London to Bogota, traditional to electronic.  It’s a taste of the modern flavors of Colombia, Jamaica, Brazil and Africa, and radiates with musical textures from a dreamy morning to a surging dance floor.

photo 3
Thievery Corporation- Saudade
A haunting, musical definition of the word “Saudade: A longing for someone that is lost, or The love that remains.” The music is a romantic yet wistful multi-lingual journey through modern Bossa Nova.  It’s simply the soundtrack to an evening curled around a future memory.

Rodrigo Y Gabriela- 9 Dead Alive
