Shapes and Sounds: Double Dose of Dope!



Here is some perfect pick-me-up music as we move into more sun-filled days.  Originally recorded in Spring ’08, but scarcely available and timeless in sound, is a double release from Thought Clouds Music Series, “Shapes & Sounds.”  Cheers.

*Linear Notes From Stan Freeberg and Winston Flavas:

“Thought Clouds are a collective of record collectors and artists turned world music activists.  Traveling the universe through the sound of every step,  Thought Clouds presents Shapes and Sounds.

The first installment in a series of newly baked sounds and a reflection on the classics from hand-picked artists, producers and djs.

We begin with B. Mark com  Mike Styles, two like minded diggers of world music and one half of the Thought Clouds Collective come together like Cariocas on Copacabana.

“Rethought Remixes and Originais” On disc-one B. Mark blends his own productions of lounged out world’n’bass with his originals and classy remixes/rarities.  These selections from B.mark’s own catalog are heart felt rhythms and anthems inspired from abroad sure to move the floor.

“Inner City Samba”  Disc-two features Mike Styles serving up those old and new Brazilian delicacies like feijoda as well as international tributes in samba-bossy-nova style.”
