Compiled and mixed by Pete Lawrence, TAKE ME HOME also includes contributions from the new Pan Electric project from Fragile State guitarist Matt Coldrick, a trio of tracks from Big Chill forumites The Beaufort Scale, Digitonal and Animat, up and coming Greek producers George Chatzis and Raining Pleasure, Mr Dan's remix of Sebastien Tellier's 'La Ritournelle', Alucidnation's re-make of Canadians Verbrilli Sound, who also appear as Telefuzz (with a guest vocal appearance from Laura B), as well as cuts from Andreas Vollenweider, Lunz, Tom Greenwood and Blu Mar Ten.
Says Pete of the compilation - "I've been aware that there has been a scarcity of good downtempo, listening-based albums since the glut of so called 'chill out' collections that were fashionable in certain circles a few years ago. Given that people are always looking for new, fresh music to listen to at home, or whilst out and about on the iPod or in the car, I've put together a fresh mix, which slots nicely into our new concept for the launch of the TAKE ME HOME series. It's obviously all about quality downtempo music to suit a variety of moods.?
The TAKE ME HOME launch party at The Big Chill Bar on March 9th, also features DJ sets from Blu Mar Ten and Mr Tom and live sets from Digitonal and Pan Electric.
