Mixtape Sessions is proud to present "Look Above (Parts I and II)" from the sophomore album of producer and songwriter, Adam Cruz, entitled, "Emospiritual Travelin." "Look Above" is divided into two parts as a way of expressing the uplifting nature of any spiritual discovery. To Adam, this song is about seeing the full potential of yourself by remaining aligned with your spiritual purpose. For many of us, we look to the sky as a gesture towards a Higher Power. Part I is a slow, but hypnotic rhythm, influenced by African and Latin sounds. Adam pours his beautiful vocals on top and captures the essence of spiritual discovery while repeating the ‘I look above' refrain. In Part II, we are met with a faster paced polyrhythmic piece that symbolizes spiritual ascension. Here, Adam repeats the refrain, 'I can see the stars,' in an incredibly exciting manner. The result is a tour-de-force for the global dance floor – two true gems!

Influence Peddlers feat. Gwen Hunter - Fragile Heart

The Influence Peddlers Main Mix percolates; with minimal but intense splashes of composition and an active interworking of percussion that locks seamlessly together. Luis' dark, minimal approach to instrument lines makes for another sleazy, gorgeous Influence Peddlers composition. John Crockett's Vocal Mix shares a similar drum philosophy, but is otherwise the standard JC composition/arrangement. Traditional verse/bridge/chorus format, with thoughtful composition and warm texture throughout mark this 'anthemy' offering. DJ Beloved's BPM mixes show off the smooth, galloping funk that he always manages to capture in his drum tracks. Beloved's commitment to composition is clear here too, with an array of live instrumentation (live bass, guitar, synths (from three different keyboardists) and percussion (recorded remotely in Jamaica...). It's a uniquely beautiful remix. Finally, the Influence Peddlers offer their Deep Mix; a bumping, minimal, deep track that gradually leads you into a flurry of sweet, airy instrumentation, before reverting back to its basic tramping roots. Gwen Hunter's lead vocal is effortlessly soulful. She's strong, even forceful at times, then gentle and sweet at others. Her extensive live performance background adds a hint of animation to her vocal that shines through on the recording.
