This tie-in between Marie Claire magazine and Compost Records offers some breezy downtempo, acid jazz and trip-hop that makes a stylish backdrop to, as the album's description puts it, "the best hours of the day." Tracks such as Koop's "Summer Sun," De-Phazz's "You Stayed" and Underwolves' "Stay a While" capture the elegantly mellow feel that will appeal to casual listeners, while other tracks go deeper into the styles that influence this particular kind of electronic music.
