This isn’t just the latest compilation from Immortal Beats, it is a compilation that certainly deserves a listen. Sample Your Mind is a 14-track record that combines easy-listening R&B with some smooth vocal samples.
Released back in 2010, the album is perfect for those comfy and relaxing nights where you just want to sit back, drink a glass of bubbly with your partner and enjoy the evening.
Immortal Beats is a German producer that definitely knows his way around smooth and ready-to-mingle beats. He has released 5 records so far and each one of them merits a listen. However, if you want something to get you started, Sample Your Mind is a good place to do just that.
Almost all of the cuts are short, with the longest clocking in at around 3 minutes. Despite this, the album is still a great treat. Starting things off is the sultry single, Are You There, most of the songs are instrumental and simply composed of looping beats; this one is no exception. It’s a beautiful and relaxing cut that perfectly sets the mood for your date with the rest of the album.
Some of my favorite tracks include the one minute stunner, Changing; the classic R&B single, Oh Wee; Groovy Dance and album capper, Just Listen Before You Sleep. Much of the songs on the record are quite likable. As mentioned, it’s one of those records you put on if you want to take a breather from the hectic pace of life and need something to calm or soothe your senses.
It’s this capacity to captivate your attention and give you a relaxing listen that makes the album worth checking out. You can also grab other compilations from Immortal Beats right over at his BandCamp page.
