This episode starts off with a nice, heavy beat from Mihaile, whose music you heard in episode 24 of “Expand Your Musical Horizons” on a track from the Dusted Wax Kingdom netlabel. This track is called “Polegnala e pshenitza,” and if I find out what that means in English (or another language), I’ll let you know.
This is followed by ¡Dela Dap, an ensemble that’s drawn worldwide attention to Balkan beats, and they’ve released a couple of wonderful albums and EPs on Chat Chapeau Records. Thank you to Ioda Promonet for allowing me to share this track with you! Here’s some buying information:

More On This Album
Next, we have a track from DJAYPEE—a French composer who now lives in Malaysia—and the track “Capoeira.” Please visit his website to hear more of his great music.
Ihor Synenko, Merlune, and Bradata have all been featured in previous episodes of this podcast. You know Ihor from his release, “Zen,” on the Gargan Records netlabel, and Merlune and Bradata are both affiliated with the netlabel Dusted Wax Kingdom in Bulgaria.
I’m honored to include a track from the wonderfully talented Cardamar on track 7: “Root Escape,” from his album “Where the Skies End.” Please check out the Cardamar Records website to hear more of his music and the other artists on the Cardamar label—artists such as Marco Torrance, Easily Embarrassed, and Xerxes— and to learn where to buy some of these releases.
Next, from Jakarta, Indonesia, we have a track from Cardinale. It was featured on the same compilation as some tracks that you heard in episode 29: “Sympathy for Indonesian Music Industry, vol 1,” on the OneLoop netlabel.
Aethyr Zephyr follows with a track by that same name, which you can download from download.com, but please give them your support by buying their EP online.
Track 10 is from Sabsidian, who I learned about thanks to Starfrosch. Sabsidian released a Creative Commons-licensed EP called “Inspringtive” on the Konsum-Productions netlabel.
And finally, the last soothing track was from Experience Deluxe in Germany, called “Aloha Lounge.” That should get you properly chilled enough to face any day.
