Let's Do it Together

Song: Lets Do it Together
Artist: Blue Six
Album: Beautiful Tomorrow

I don't even know how I got this song, but Blue Six's "Lets Do it Together" has made just about every "Chill Out" or "Late Night Sexy" playlist I've ever put together.  It's got everything that I think of as the perfect Chill Out/Lounge song.  The mid-tempo vibe strikes the perfect mood, the music is on this side of trendy ambients (despite being from 2002) and contains some cooly-detached female vocals.  It's what I like to think of as the perfect high-style Manhattan rooftop party tune... sipping expensive drinks and making yourself sound more interesting than you are.  (?!?!?!)

Anyhow... I know absolutely NOTHING about Blue Six.  I do not know the rest of the album from which "Together" comes from; "Beautiful Tomorrow."  Oh well... here comes the research...

Blue Six are on the label "Naked Music," a dance record label based out of NYC and San Francisco, specializing in "deep house" and downtempo-style music.  The label was founded by Dave Boonshoft and Jay Denes.  The former, a producer, happens to also be... Blue Six.  There are a handful of other artist on the label (I only had heard of Lisa Shaw before) as the company really specialized in... you guessed it, compilations!  Of which the "Nude Dimensions," "Midnight Snack," "Carte Blanche," and "Bare Essentials" all come.

It turns out that Blue Six actually released a new album, "Noesis," this past June.  I'll have to give it a spin and see if it holds up to "Lets Do it Together."
