Two iconic labels—Astralwerks and Blue Note Records—have teamed up to create Bluewerks, a visionary new series of Lo-Fi compilations where downtempo electronica meets jazz-infused sounds across a variety of themes and moods.
The first collection Bluewerks, Vol. 1: Up Down Left Right is out today, an 8-track EP introduced by BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong that features established and up-and-coming Lo-Fi creators including Zmeyev, Sebastian Kamae, tysu, Saib, G Mills, hiyasu, and Phlocalyst.
