I’m very proud to announce the official release of The Many Colors of [astral projects]. This album is the culmination of ideas materialized in 2012. Styles range from mellow funk, to boogie, to disco, to jazz-funk, to hypnagogic.

Characterized by swirling organs, warm Rhodes, vintage synths,  and syncopated bass, this collection stands as the most advanced work from [astral projects] Records thus far, and as a sampler of the featured artists’ upcoming projects in the next few months.

Hi-res art .pdf files come with the digital release. Or if you prefer a physical copy there will be a limited edition disc that might come with some more surprises so you can get your copy. Also, if you purchase a physical copy, you’ll get a free digital copy as well. In the next couple weeks we’ll be expanding into more popular online music stores.

As mentioned before, every track here is part of a larger project from each individual artists. This collection stands as a sort of jumping off point of our new development. For instance, The Nubians record (Changing With The Times) will be released in late January, upon which point there will be some more announcements.

With all that said, I’m sure you’ll feel this joint as much as I do. -Js.One
