"Masterfully curated & sequenced dual cassette compilation by Portland insider cabal New Information spanning the furthest fusions of ambient cruise, vaporous leisure, and retrograde house. Named in homage to a Portland new age boutique active during the 1970’s and 80’s run by the Stiles sisters whose merchandising ephemera lingers on in second-hand shops around the city, Styles For Relaxation was assembled across the bulk of 2016 by astute vibe-o-phile Andrew Heuback. Many artists included reside in the Pac Northwest but others hail from Japan, Russia, England, Europe, and other far flung geographies. 120 magic minutes of glowing motion & lucid dreaming by an eclectic cast of visionaries. Early contender for compilation of the year." - Britt Brown, NNF / 100% Silk
Mastered by Joel Shanahan.
