About 6 to 7 years ago one of the A&R's I worked with approached me about working with a artist. At the time I still lived In Florida, and this artist was from Tuscaloosa, Alabama. I wasn't sure how that was going to work but this person assured me once I heard this guy I would definitely want to work with him.
I also wasn't sure if Alabama was ready for another artist that has the potential of reaching some huge heights. So due to my friendship with this A&R I decided to listen to this guy and give it a chance. I had him send me some music and videos and I delayed on checking them out In fear of being disappointed. Boy was I in for a treat with this guy. Once I heard his music and watched the videos I called my friend back and screamed I want in.
Shown 1k at the time was going by the name LIL Shown and he had a following in his city that was just amazing to me for a artist I had never heard of. He had the ability to deliver his feelings in a manner that you had to relate to It. That is exacly what he does in this track "Cold Hearted". It gives us a taste of the pain that a lot of men and women feel on some level. I hope you guys can enjoy this track as much as I do. And I hop you can relate to It as much as I can.

I love it when a musical connection is made! I’ve been banging on about Zero 7 and then their offshoot, Fragile State, on this curation and then what happens? I come across someone new with a name that sounds like I should like them – Ambient Jazz Ensemble – and who’s central to them? None other than Neil Cowley…

I can barely believe that I’ve let this curation go so long without more than a passing reference to the legend that is Peter Gabriel – though Genesis feature here with “Cinema Show” from “Selling England By The Pound” which has him on lead vocals…

In keeping with the “world” themes of this curation, Bliss hail from Denmark, though their collective owes as much to influences from Guinea and Sweden! They first appeared in the early 2000’s which really was the halcyon period for ambient chill stuff it seems – a golden age? …
