Touch Of Class Records is impressing its sultry vibes and treasured beats on your summer haze this month with the liberation of their Indian Summer compilation. The budding California label offers twelve tracks in their second release, featuring incredible artists such as Wolf + Lamb favorites Tanner Ross, Aquarius Heaven, Greg Paulus and Navid Izadi, Bay Area aficionados Safeword, Dave Aju, Pillowtalk, Machine Forest (Tone Of Arc’s new alias), the Signal Flow duo themselves and many more.
Each song included is entrancing and passionate, encompassing a radiant depth that will slip your thoughts back to that magical summer moment you hold dear.
Pillowtalk’s remix of DJ Tennis’s “Monocraft (Your Love is Alright)” is expressive and sincere while still maintaining the Life & Death maestro’s mysterious groove before Machine Forest’s “Sidewalk Soundwave” takes you on a dreamy escapade with faint erratic utterances and island tones. The Safeword duo produced a heartening track with “Tales of The Sunset” as legato style chord progressions and quick recurring shakers enhance an infectious bassline that will move any crowd-day or night.
Navid Izadi comes in hot with track number nine, featuring the alluring vocal stylings of Jesse Rannix and a 90’s energy that may just inspire you to Vogue. I absolutely love Anes’s dashingly fluid voice in BE MAJOR’s “Something to Lose” as it rolls off the harmonious keys and sensual snaps, leading to concluding slow jam “101 South,” compiled by Dave Aju, Walker Bernard, Kenneth Scott & Signal Flow-a wonderful way to wrap up a collection that is overflowing with talent.
This comprehensive musical journey is infused with sunshine and will quench your thirst as we sink deeper into the crisp bite of Autumn.
