World of Echo Of the three volumes of this series, this second one is my favorite. A creative beat tape you shouldn't sleep on.

JoronJoron Excellent selection of hazy beats and grooves inspired by jazz legend Alice Coltrane. Favorite track: Bare.

K15 These Cosmic Compilations are ALL worthy of your time, really jazz filled grooves and takes on some of the most prestigious musicians to ever hit the planet.

Lot's of cool reworks and straight sample flips. Favorite track: High Lander Grammar.

Aaron C. Hollis The more nuanced and contemplative of the two Cosmic Comp volumes, this is an intelligent and challenging album in the vein of the music it explores. Favorite track: Ari Atoll.

Andrew Jervis The second in a series of abstract beat tributes to jazz giants (the first was a tribute to Pharoah Sanders,) features some deep reflective moments, and some more sample-heavy loopy stuff. Worth checking for sure. Favorite track: Bare.

We've always felt there was a huge similarity between the Avant-Garde/Free Jazz movement of the 50's & 60's & the beat movement of Today. As both movements attempted to break down, extend & alter the conventions of their original genres (Jazz & Hip Hop) & were never afraid to experiment & improvise to create something that wasn't accepted commercially at the time. Therefor we decided to put together the avant garde series compilations which connected the dots between the two sounds//cultures.

This compilation is a dedication to American jazz pianist, organist, harpist and composer Alice Coltrane.

''She was central to the Indocentric/Spiritual jazz of the early '70s and arguably the first instance of a female instrumentalist assuming a defining role in a jazz subgenre. She spent the majority of her life seeking spiritually in both music and her private life & shared her husband's [Jazz Legend John Coltrane] instincts in taking great artistic risks to pursue a spiritual quest.'' - Jazz Times
