A soul-stirring blend of electronic music and acoustic instrumentation mixed with wonderfully evocative vocals with some essential Buddhist philosophy. That’s Chris Le Blanc’s magical new album, BEYOND THE SUNSETS. You may know this talented artist from his contributions to world-renown chill out compilations such as Café del Mar, Buddha Bar and Sony Erotic Lounge. BEYOND THE SUNSETS is 100% Chris Le Blanc tunes. 13 shimmering originals from the gorgeous island of Ibiza.
Le Blanc's compositions mirror the beauty of the island itself and not the party scenes and major events.

His skillful blend of electronic and acoustic instruments are a cocktail that captures these magical moments. For years this mixture has made Chris Le Blanc a highly respected artist whose songs on countless high-profile lounge and chillout compilations such as Cafe Del Mar, Buddha Bar, etc. are to be heard nbsp;around the globe. With Beyond The Sunsets he has now fulfilled his dream of an album with 100% Chris Le Blanc tracks which carries the listener away to the emotional side of music with its 13 musical gems.
Waters from New York, Sangre De La Tierra from Barcelona, the Brazilian singer Lisa de Andrade and world-class musicians such as Raoul Walton on bass and Wolfgang Haffner on drums - thus, creating the musical equivalent of a literary work by which Le Blanc was very inspired: Nada Brahma - The World is Sound by Joachim Ernst Berendt. Just as the renowned music journalist and producer claims: the ear is the gateway to the soul. This also holds true for Le Blanc. Prose is an impulse to a musical journey into the land of imagination. A successful meeting point between tradition and modernism.
Beyond The Sunsets - Music for the senses, the perfect soundtrack from sunrise to sunset, from the first to the very last track - 100 percent worth listening to and 100 percent relaxation.
