Herb Records 2013, which will be officially released on November 5, 2013, includes the musical works of Congo Sanchez, Hydrophonics, and Groove Status. Their complementary skills and sounds are compiled into a 40 minute mix - bringing the vibe of the Herb Records collective to your eardrums for the first time. This organic approach to studio production pays homage to classic downtempo, trip/hip-hop, and dub reggae, with a modern blend of moombah, dance, and world-funk rhythms. This compilation sets the tone for the launch of Herb Records, the music label founded by Congo Sanchez.

Congo’s time touring and recording with Thievery Corporation has had an incredible influence on his sound; his multifaceted experiences shine through the aesthetic delivered in this mix. His new sounds accentuate his drumming roots, showing a progression into a percussion-heavy mix for the dance floor. Hydrophonics, an experienced producer and live-looping genius, adds a crisp layer of consistently fresh sounds and urban-inspired beats. His track, “Sunrise,” is an awakening introduction to the mix. Groove Status is a master of all that is funky, with a groove-hop flavor that adds a glitchy bounce to electronic dance tunes. His first track enters the mix at about twelve minutes in, with a sexy vibe that lives up to its name, “Love Sauce.” The three artists together make up the high-grade sound that is Herb Records.
