Backside says:
Pacific Rhythm - The First Wave, is the first in a series of Harthouse America compilations. Featuring music from Vancouver to Southern California, Pacific Rhythm captures some of the finest West Coast artists and producers of electronica. Chilled out electro and bassy house, stoner trance and extraterrestrial sounds, all these and more influence Pacific Rhythm's diverse array of mixing techniques and hallucination-friendly sequences. From the traditions of the past to the trends of the future, the artists collected here share the compulsion to make stunning and innovative dance music. Pacific Rhythm was conveived and compiled by Robert Shea.
