Positive Flow – Flow Lines LP

UK-based multi-instrumentalist producer Jesse Reuben Wilson has blessed us this year with his first ever full length album, recently released through Tokyo Dawn Records. Adopting the name Positive Flow as the moniker for this project, Wilson uses the Flow Lines album to positively project a stellar vision into the culture vortex that is music.

Gathering influences from funk, soul, hip hop, and electronica Flow Lines offers fifteen tracks packed full of sounds. Including a multitude of both analogue and digital synthesizers, plenty of full bodied live instruments and an extraordinary collection of vocals from fellow UK recording artists, Flow Lines is a multifaceted journey through sound. Joining him on the album are UK soul legend Omar along with Stacy Epps, Colonel Red, Vanessa Freeman, Andre Espeut, and Heidi Vogel of the Cinematic Orchestra to name a few.

After listening to this album, you will surely know the mastery and creativity with which this man creates. If you are interested, we invite you to check out his bio directly from Tokyo Dawn Records here. Purchasing options are listed below.

Tokyo Dawn Records : The Boogie Volume 3

Tokyo Dawn Records is bringing back the boogie with their recently released compilation album, The Boogie Volume 3.  This 17 track album is made up of artists from around the world, who collectively share one common knowledge.  What is that one common knowledge?  Understanding what it takes to make your feet move, no matter who YOU may be.

This is a really refreshing album to listen to.  It’s the third installment of the Tokyo Dawn Records Boogie series, and they’ve made quite a splash in the international dance community with this one.  With my inbox being flooded with glitch-hop and dubstep, it was really nice to open this gem and experience the cool positive vibes each track pushes from the speakers.

My favorite track on The Boogie Volume 3 is Eternal Wisdom by Reeno.  From the 80’s opening synth line all the way down to the clear muffled drums, this track flows like water.  It’s the kind of song you start moving your body to and all of a sudden 4 minutes has gone by!  The simplicity and concentration on the synth lines really brings the atmosphere being projected from Eternal Wisdom  to a whole new level of chill.

If you like beats inspired by hip-hop, funk, soul, and R&B, you’ll love The Boogie Volume 3.
