Music Design in Review
Dubbed the Intimate Side of Buddha Lounge, Sequoia Grooves Hotel Tara series echoes the latters proclivity for high quality global grooves, only with the mellowness factor increased tenfold. David & Steve Gordon, resident mixmasters on this ambient excursion, cherry-picked a simply luscious collection down-tempo gems for your lounging pleasure, chilled to the point of transcendent bliss. The opening track, Navajo from Jens Gad is a prime example of what you can expect across the board sensual rhythms, a sea of fluid synthesizers and sublime melodies that bubble up here and there with the effervescence of club soda. Achilleas Shears from Scar evokes a sunrise over the beaches of Ibiza and Win Meyersons Samsara finds a balance between corner jazz club chic and Asian mysticism. Great addition to the series!

Play List
New Age percussion legends turned creative mix-masters continue in Hotel Tara 2 with grooves from the coolest DJs and artists, though blissfully and considerably slowed down and relaxed compared to the first release, for some truly irresistible and lazy-edged lounging pleasure. The 12 gems highlight tracks from Achillea, Jens Gad, Opera-to-Relax, MTC, and the Gordon brothers. The tracks seamlessly blend mystical vocals, fluid electronica, ethnic instrumentation, and hypnotic rhythms. Check into the Hotel Tara 2 for the most luxurious vacation for your mind and soul, and turn your customers on to this sexy and seductive piece of global electronica.

The Pagan Review
Funky" in a real good way. This CD makes you want to move - I mean hip gyrating, pelvic thrusting and arms open wide floating and swaying kind of moving. I definitely have my favorites, but there isn't a song on here I don't like. The Gordon Brothers are incredibly talented with coming up with just the right mix. Kind of makes me want to go open my own club, but then again, I don't have to, I have all the music I need right here.

Global Rhythm
In 2002, Sequoia Records founders David and Steve Gordon began their Buddha-Lounge series of chill-out mixes. Showing no signs of slowing down, the Gordons have recently expanded their nu-global franchise under the Hotel Tara name. There are favorite artists from previous Gordon projects, including Opera-to-Relax with the slowly swinging deep chill of Fly!, Hands Upon Black Earth with the refreshingly funky, previously unreleased In Between, plus Jaya Lakshmi, who sings her captivating ballad Pancha Tattvit over gentle acoustic guitars. If youre looking for soothing, mostly instrumental electronica that incorporates world-music influences, the Gordon brothers certainly dont disappoint (and theyre also eco-friendly).
