Good Harmonics to Soothe the Mind…

24 February 2010 7 Comments

Peace,

I always do my best to find soothing, relaxing, or just interesting background music for my work (videos, rhymes, blogposts, etc.) – music that either puts the listener in more of a meditative state or something they can just vibe out to.

So when I got a facebook message the other day asking where to find all this stuff, I figured the brother asking wasn’t the only one wondering, so here it is:



——— ON THE HIP-HOP SIDE ———
For more of the uptempo, jazzy stuff, just do YouTube searches for the following…these are lesser known producers (most from Japan or the Phillipines, actually) who I think are holding it down for hip-hop more so then we are over here. Check it:



FAT JON ————










& NUJABES ————








Also try producers Uyamo Hiroto, Nomak or Freddie Joachim.




——— ON THE DEEPER-SIDE ———
For the deeper tunes that’ll make you want to meditate or go into “reflection-mode” (what one of my ex-girlfriends calls “Nature Music” lol), it gets a little harder, because these artists tend to be VERY diverse

You’ll probably like several joints from each person, but have trouble finding someone you like all the time. The only producer (or composer, really) I like universally is Yasunori Mitsuda. He’s dope.

Do YouTube searches for cats like:



YASUNORI MITSUDA ————










& YOKO KANNO ————





(composed by Yoko Kanno, sung by Gabriela Robin)



You can also search for songs by Naohito Uchiyama, Origa or Italian singer Illaria Graziano.

Hope this helps,

Fat Jon can turn you into human jello in less then 10 seconds…
