KU DE TA is proud to announce the release of "Best of KU DE TA Volume 1", the first in its new series of compilations, which has been artfully crafted by JIM BREESE, the international DJ and annual resident, alongside BTK, the KU DE TA Musical Director and resident DJ. Together they deliver a dramatic audio representation of Bali's most revered lifestyle destination, with effortlessly grooving, yet soothing, sounds gathered from across time and zone.
It's an exquisite selection, skilfully melding Balearic, Bossa, Dreamy, Jazzy, Chillout and Modern Disco into a defining statement of KU DE TA's musical style and atmosphere - tranquil, energetic and soulful.
For example, "Nao Adianta" is a 1977 Bossa Nova classic from Brazil's Trio Mocoto, while Ultra Nate's "Twisted" and "Speck of Gold" by Afterlife are quality pieces of Balearic chill from last decade. These are intertwined with the morecontemporary edge provided by Todd Terje's modern twist on Antena's "Camino Del Sol‟, and lifted in tempo by such pieces as the memorable piano playing of virtuoso Chilly Gonzales on "Knight Moves" – a track KU DE TA predicts will become a future classic.
The physical compilation will be sold exclusively at the KU DE TA Boutique from early 2012, and will soon be available for iTunes download.
BTK muses: "With the belief that the soundtrack of KU DE TA is as important as the venue itself, this new series strives to bring another level of audio excellence to our loyal following worldwide. We've carefully handpicked every track in this compilation to create a seamless blend of music that captures the essence of KU DE TA".
