As always, 19BOX RECORDINGS has saved the best till last and is finally ready to present "Essence - Embrace Sessions". It's almost been 3 years since we released our last "Essence" compilation. "Essence" is one of the most famous compilation series in Japan and is mixed by 19BOX head honcho, DJ 19. The "Essence" series has been focusing on chillout and downtempo music instead of stereotypical dancefloor-oriented mixes. This promises to ooze cool, fuzzy, lovely and thoroughly provocative electronica. 

There are 4 unreleased tracks by new and old artists known and unknown. We go by the music and not the name. Alexander S. Karlov from Russia makes his 19BOX debut with '11.40 Dollars' and 'Ocean Of Your Heart', which cross the borders of electronica with chillout and ambient. Aviat from Mumbai, India is a new artist too, and delivers sensual & emotional 'Nova'. Tokyo's DJ 19 & Edison aka Ambrozia jump back into the scene to craft classical chillout 'Private Indulgence'. We give you a glimpse at what we're cooking for the future.

DJ 19の名を轟かす契機となった1999年スタートの『Essence』シリーズは、MIX CDとしてとしての役目を終え、現在はチルアウトを中心としたコンピレーションとして稼働。約3年振りとなる『Essence - Embrace Sessions』は、エロクトロニカにもアプローチするセレクションを含め、19BOX RECORDINGSの今、そして未来を提示するショーケースとなっている。新たに19BOXに加わった2人、ロシアのALEXANDER S. KARLOVが「11.40 Dollars」と「Ocean Of Your Heart」を、インドのAVIATが「Nova」を提供。更にDJ 19 & EDISONによるAMBROZIAが得意のクラシカルな調べで「Private Indulgence」を初出展。
