Downtempo producer Zane Tate has released the long-awaited follow-up to his first long player, and it’s called Down to Dusk: Rural Sounds Volume 2. The album mixes haunting mood-music with groove-driven beats while exploring the occasional excursion into chillout music.
Listen to a preview of the first single from the record, called “Getaway.”
While Zane Tate has released a number of singles since Rural Sounds Volume 1, including “The Last Resort,” which was featured on SomaFM’s Groove Salad Compilation, Down to Dusk is his first album in seven years. The record is decidedly darker than the first – consider it night-music – and much more focused in its approach to chilled downtempo music.
Zane Tate’s Down to Dusk: Rural Sounds Volume 2 is out now.
Zane Tate’s Latin Jazz-flavored house single, “El Tiempo Es Circular (featuring Alex Bershadsky and Aline Esquivel)” has been re-released on Juno Download, and is available now.
Out now on Leisure Lab is the newest Future Soul release from producer Zane Tate. The song is called “El Tiempo es Circular,” and features vocals by Aline Esquivel and bass by Alex Bershadsky.
Zane delivers a mix of Nu Jazz and House in the track with a four-on-the-floor rhythm under lush Rhodes chords and synth stabs. Renowned Jazz and Fusion bassist Alex Bershadsky holds down the bottom end with a bass line that is both driving and melodic. And Aline’s vocals float over the groove as she sings, “El tiempo es circular. La música no acaba jamás (Time goes in circles. Music is never ending)”
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.
