Roland Voss has returned with a new Lemongrass long-player called Papillon (the French word for butterfly), and it’s available now. Very much a summer album, the dreamy downtempo of songs like “Now” and “Red Heaven” evoke memories and feelings of hazy sunsets and evenings on the beach. Papillon mixes lounge with occasional hints of Jazz and Deep House, and most of its songs are instrumental, alternating between ambient and groove-driven styles. Lemongrass also introduces us to a new vocal collaborator named Jane Maximova whose voice sounds both bittersweet and blissful on songs such as “Riddle.” Papillon, the 13th Lemongrass record in 16 years, is a beautiful album, and we recommend it highly.
Zane Tate’s newest single, “The Last Resort,” is out now.
“The Last Resort” is a downtempo / instrumental hip hop song by Zane Tate, and it’s as appropriate for spy films as it is for luxurious lounges. The track features a bouncing beat, a hypnotic bass line, and a mysterious melody. “The Last Resort” is for any fan of exotic trip hop or chillout music.
