Finest Instrumental Chillout & Lounge Jazz

Genres: instrumental, lounge, chillout, jazz, jazzy hip hop

London based music label Cult Classic Records is a steady source of amazing talent from around the world. Featured on Sound Sunday countless times, they contribute no less than three amazing artists to this edition; and that’s just because I forced to contain myself.

The debut release of Canadian beatsmith Ljones is a collection of songs from late 2009 to early 2011. As a fan of old records Ljones was always interested in the beat making process, but DJing and discovering the music of artists like Nujabes really fueled his interest.

myk. is the moniker of English producer Michael Hodgson. His debut Between The Lines strikes the perfect balance between mellow melodies and hectic beats.

Bakoda, the German producer also known as Evan Awake, is another young talent influenced by Nujabes. With Sketchbook he presents an impressive 40 track debut album that demonstrates the full spectrum of his skills. Highly recommended track: 11. Wasteland Bobblehead Anthem.
