An amazing album that deserves a spot on everyone's playlist!
Bass, Sweat & Tears is an organic fusion of dub and nu-beat with a global mix of influences. Originally released in December 2004, this album is inspired by native cultures from around the world, taking the listener on a journey from Burkina Faso to Iran, Pakistan and Northern India; from Papua New Guinea and the Amazon rain forest to Italy and Spain.
An evocative, deep and elegant work in which indigenous themes and global beats contrast and compliment each other, Bass, Sweat & Tears is Gaudi's fifth solo album and was three and a half years in the making. In that time Gaudi worked with and recorded a total of 42 musicians from around the planet. This album, with its blend of global influences and style that evades categorisation, reflects Interchill's philosophy that, irrespective of which corner of the globe it comes from, good music is good music.
