'Sunset Magnetic North' by Various Artists
Waveform journeys north of the border for some cooler perspectives and a refreshing compilation of tracks first brought to our attention by our friends from Canada's Interchill label. Heavenly, dub-influenced strains of electro beatz that provide a whole new outlook to twilight time. Kick back under the aurora borealis...as the evening becomes electric.
"Here's a novel idea, a U.S. label releasing a compilation of Canadian electronic music. Focusing on the downtempo side, the 'Sunset Magnetic North' set presents a well-balanced mix of dub reggae, drum 'n' bass and tabla funk. Considering Canada's rep for high-quality pot, this spacey compilation should affirm our image of zoned-out, peace-loving Canucks in the minds of our neighbours to the south."
