Info for Unusual X-mas Songs
This is a interesting compilation of carols by different musicians. The songs are typical carol numbers, but the interpretations of carols are somewhat unorthodox. House, glitch rock, triphop, accapella and more.
1. Joy to the world - Merry Jane:
Hommage to ABBA. Merry Jane are members of four but they are all female. You will enjoy this song for sure.
2. Jingle Bell Rock - V-tet
Most typical style song through the album however their voice performances are not typical but superb.
3. O Come All Ye Faithful - Jooyoung Park
4. Winter Wonderland - Ebony Hill
Retro soul version of Winter Wonderland.
5. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas - Dahm-On
You could say this song is Triphop or Abstract Hiphop or whatever. Besides, 21 years olds singer nailed down the hook and the groove.
6. Santa Claus is Coming to Town remixed by Pixy - Hyungmi Kim
Female DJ Pixy remixed popular song of Christmas. Used to be Jazz but now it's House.
7. All I Want for Christmas is You - Stylo
Everyone is not happy on Christmas day. If you are seeking different kind a mood for the christmas, you should check this song out. The song is loud, noisy and unstable.
8. Chirstmas Present - Frespark
The original composition as a carol. Korean hiphop duo Frespark challenged themselves with releasing their own Christmas song.
A compilation dedicated to funk and pre – zouk period, which has never been documented before. It is compilated by specialists of the genre: Julien Achard (Digger's Digest) and Nicolas SKLIRIS (ex-Superfly Records).
After the success of Kouté Jazz, Heavenly Sweetness comes back with a dancefloor but not jazz compilation, enough to move your feet at through the whole summer ! 13 disco, boogie and Zouk tracks recorded in the 80’s in the West Indies.
The advantage of this selection is precisely that it reveals a broader spectrum than the zouk music style that are badly defined. Most of the tracks, were not much broadcasted even if interpreted by some big names in Caribbean music (Pierre-Edouard Decimus / Patrick St. Eloi / Eddy La Viny). They were too fast classified as Zouk. These Tracks reveal this will of singularity, this merger between traditional and other rhythms genres (funk, disco, afro-beat, Latin Brazilian ...), with the addition of new instruments such as synthesizers and drums machine in the creative process.
In many zouk’s albums, this period often included one or even several, tracks that were qualified as "proto-zouk" and "funky-zouk" or the "boogie-zouk" to emphasize the fusion of genres . But these tracks have remained unknown to the general public because only the "hits" were played on the radio, dance floors (the famous "tan" or “zouk”), clubs and bus.
This album contains no booklet.
