Astralwerks And Blue Note Announce New Christmas-Themed Lo-Fi Compilation Bluewerks Vol. 5: Warm Up

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Astralwerks and Blue Note Records/Universal Music, bring the holiday cheer with the fifth installment of Bluewerks, the iconic labels' collaborative Lo-Fi series where downtempo electronica meets jazz-infused sounds. Bluewerks Vol. 5: Warm Up is a Christmas-themed collection that was entirely produced by Sebastian Kamae, a Bluewerks alumnus who was featured on Bluewerks, Vol. 1: Up Down Left Right. Each of the tracks on the new EP are an ode to the winter months with titles like "Warm Up," "Reunion," "December," and "Ice Skating."

In the time since the first EP's release earlier this year, Bluewerks has become a runaway success in the Lo-Fi genre, garnering over 25 million streams across platforms and prominent placements on tastemaking playlists like Spotify's "Lo-Fi Beats," Apple Music's "Beatstrumental," and YouTube's "Lo-Fi Loft." Bluewerks Vol. 3: Heat Wave hit #1 on the NACC Electronic college radio chart, making it the second Bluewerks EP to reach the top spot. In April, a Bluewerks-themed Hong Kong pop-up shop in partnership with FabCafe provided an immersive experience to fans of the music and coffee alike, presenting a Bluewerks-inspired menu and decor. The event was so successful that a second Hong Kong pop-up was launched with openground cafe.
The two labels have also launched Bluewerks Radio, a 24/7 streaming station HERE:
