Irina Mikhailova & B. Smiley: Heartbeat of my Soul
Elefaria Records

B. Smiley guest-DJed at KZSU back in December '08 on my show and gave me this disc. It's really quite nice - not really a dance CD, it's actually more of a world-exotica CD. Nice breathy vocals from Irina who is from Kazakhstan. B. Smiley and others lay out some nice instrumentals and beats. Try: 1,2,4,5,9.

1. Lushly layered vocals & chants, Indianesque percussion, synth washes
2. Dubby bassline, sensuous vocals, swirly synths
3. A bit more breathy & plaintive vocals, dubby bassline
4. Downtempo, w/ trumpet, tablas - jazzy exotica w/ plaintive vox
5. Chill-out exotica w/ sensuous vox and fluffy synths
6. Slow breathy echoey vox, exotic pop
7. Broken-beat patterns, plaintive vox
8. A consistent droney effect, with uplifting vocals
9. Echoey plaintive vox, chill beats, a few spoken words
10. Another version of #1 w/ less beats
