Since January 2009, Wormland Music directly links innovative German men's fashion label Wormland with modern electronic music. "The Sweetest Taboo Vol. 1" now steps forward as the first release on sublabel Wormland White. Corresponding with the glamorously stylish performance of the fashion brand, compilation series "The Sweetest Taboo" has an irresistible sexy touch, designed by German producer DJ Red Buddha.
Inspired by artists such as Talvin Singh and Nitin Sawney, Red Buddha so far has gained considerable reputation with ethno crossover albums like "Siddharta in Space" or "China Exotic", where he managed to blend traditional instruments with electronic sounds. After long journeys around the world, he finds perfect relaxation on the music blessed island of Ibiza. This balearic mood is mirrored on his first selection for Wormland White. Animating and easy-going, he strings together 13 stimulating tracks, with excursions into latin vibes, chill house grooves, bossa sounds, reggae flavours and relaxed trip hop beats. Titles such as "Sunbather" or "Beautiful Day" soon clarify that facing this diversity one aspect is key: listen, and you will feel the sunshine, feel good and ready to flirt.
As perfect appetizer, Moca's "Latein" serves the first hit. Its languorous latin grooves, casual chords of a jazz guitar and playful electronic sounds make it feel like slowly sipping some Rumflavoured South American coffee. Stimulated as you are, you will be carried away on the airy cloud of Jazzamor's "Beautiful Days" before you are cushioned again on the cosy sounds of Alien Café. Their "Chloé Says" merge the smoothly rapped story of a Canadian stripper with tender piano, string and flute sounds. Sleek and supple, Praful's "One Day Deep" follows suit.
Head nodding beats and a bewitching groove will cuddle in your soul.
