Thanks for joining me for another episode of Late Frost…glad you’re listening.

We’re also now in the iTunes store, so please subscribe. We’ll be grateful!
I’ve got lots of chilled-out goodness for you here, from abstract hip-hop to glitchy chillwave to even lo-fi and ambient tracks. The Late Frost Spotlight in the middle of this episode showcases downtempo and chillstep artist Chilllito. But let’s start things out from a French trip-hop group you’ll be sure to hear more from in future episodes…Screenatorium.

The fifth track, like all the rest by the other artists on the compilation album, was completely written, performed, and recorded from scratch in just one day (September 28, 2013). Amazing. In fact, this is the seventh such compilation through BFW Recordings and there are likely more to follow. I’ll be featuring another track from this compilation later on in this episode.
LATE FROST SPOTLIGHT ON CHILLLITO:
Chilllito is a 27 year old Russian producer who surprisingly only started making music about a year and a half ago. He explained to me through an e-mail that all his life he had thought that making music was too complicated for him. I’m sure glad he changed his mind and pursued his dream. This October he released his second EP, “Could We,” and he cited some of his influences as producers like Nocow, Clubroot, Volor Flex, and Burial. You can check out some of his lengthy downtempo mixes at his Soundcloud website…some are almost an hour long! A lot of his music has a strong chillstep or future garage vibe…downtempo at its finest! Visit Chilllito at his Bandcamp page. You can also listen to some new tracks from his brand new EP, “Could We,” at the Bass Light Records’ Bandcamp page. All of these links are provided in the notes for Episode #2 on the podcast website at latefrost.libsyn.com. We’ve got four very solid tracks from Chillito here…two from his newest release, “Could We,” and two from his previous EP “Shadow Drawing the Path.”
