Zane Tate on the Ketch a Vibe Show

The Ketch a Vibe show

While “Getaway” was the lead-off single for my new album, Down to Dusk: Rural Sounds Volume 2, “The Man Called Thursday” has been gaining a bit of radio traction lately. Most recently, Aja and Claire Simone included the song on their Ketch a Vibe show for two weeks in a row (episodes 194 and 195)!

I’m always happy when one of my songs makes it into a radio playlist, but it’s especially exciting when the song gets played alongside some of my favorite artists. In show #195, “The Man Called Thursday” is played along with tracks by artists such as Incognito, Dorian Concept, and Fertile Ground! Definitely good company to keep, and I’m honored to be included.

The Ketch a Vibe show is one I’d listen to whether they played my music or not. Jazz funk to spiritual jazz to downtempo. Deep and eclectic. I highly recommend this one

Zane Tate Charting at Below Zero

Below Zero podcast

I’m ecstatic to tell you that “August Spies” from my new album debuted on the Below Zero show’s top ten chart at #1 last week, and “Getaway” at #7! Below Zero and DJ Mason Rothert have long been supporters of my music, for which I’m extremely grateful, but this was still a great surprise. On last week’s show, #445, they played three songs from Down to Dusk, back to back. You should check it out. The play some really great chillout and downtempo music, and I think you’ll really enjoy it.

Zane Tate – Down to Dusk: Rural Sounds Volume 2 – Out Now!

My new album, Down to Dusk: Rural Sounds Volume 2 is out now!

Zane Tate - Down to Dusk

Seven years after my debut album, Boom Bap Sunrise, I’m excited to announce this new 7-song release of downtempo and chillout music called Down to Dusk. Check out a preview below:

This album is very much a follow up to Rural Sounds Volume 1. But unlike Boom Bap Sunrise, the songs on Down to Dusk were all written at night, so the sound is much darker, more introspective. I try to brighten the mood though, and end the record on a redemptive high note.

Down to Dusk: Rural Sounds Volume 2 is available on CD, and digitally in iTunes, Amazon, and other major digital music stores.

Here’s the track list:

  1. Getaway
  2. The Man Called Thursday
  3. Chilling Interlude 1
  4. August Spies
  5. The Great On We
  6. Chilling Interlude 2
  7. Hosanna, Superstar
