Various Artists Destination: Out
- Words: Selena Hs
- Label: Ecco Chamber
Future jazz has always seemed to me a sleek soundtrack for a utopia in which no one sweats, spills, or has visible pores. In this world, everyone jetsets while wearing unrumpled white and listens to Destination: Out, a smooth cocktail of cosmopolitan broken beat and downtempo, featuring artists from Europe, Russia and Japan. Burbling with effortless good taste, the two-disc compilation features gentle magic from Cuica, Jimpster and Bobby Hughes Combination. Departing slightly from the beguiling "Braziliance" burble, A.L.S.M.'s track just hints at turbulence over windswept steppes. Get your manicured paws all over this one.
