New York, NY – There’s a chill in the air as the days grow shorter and the nights grow longer, and Ultra Records has the perfect soundtrack: Ultra Chilled 06, a compilation of the best downtempo grooves for late night lounging. This collection of 24 relaxing tracks on two discs, out this week, will keep electronica music fans warm despite the falling temperatures outside.
Ultra Chilled 6 features both tracks from today’s hottest emerging acts and long time chillout favorites, including Morcheeba’s “Washed Away,” Chicane’s “Washed Away” (also available on The Best of Chicane, out December 15 on Ultra Records), a downtempo remix of “The One” by Sharam (formerly of Deep Dish) featuring Daniel Bedingfield, and a rare live version of Kaskade’s “The One.”
The collection also previews a track by new Ultra Records artist signing Late Night Alumni, known best as Kaskade’s band. The track “Golden” can also be heard on their sophomore album release, Of Birds, Bees, Butterflies, Etc. (Ultra Records, out this week).
Fans of ambient music will also get a taste of the forthcoming release by world-renowned electronic producer, composer, sound designer and overall enigma Kenneth Bager, whose “Fragment One (…And I Kept Hearing)” included here is the first single from his forthcoming full-length Fragments from a Space Cadet (out January 26, Ultra Records). Audiences may already recognize the song from repeated spins on BBC Radio 1, or from the video by the world famous fashion photographer Ellen Von Unwerth (Madonna, Bjork, David Bowie and Britney Spears).
Ultra Chilled 06 (2xCD, Ultra Records) will be available this Tuesday November 17 in stores and online wherever music is sold.
