EVOLVE is the downtempo chillout project of artist/producer Red Broad. The first release, HAPPY HOUR IN THE GENE POOL has enjoyed great success within the downtempo chillout and lounge genres with ever popular and iconic tracks such as August Moon, Do You Know This One?, Well I Gotta Story and Couldn't Be More Wrong becoming regulars on radio stations such as Soma FM Groove Salad, Smooth Lounge, Chill With Mindi Abair and Sirius/XM Chill. Tracks from the album have also made appearances on TV shows including USA Networks “Royal Pains”, MTV’s “Road Rules” and “The Real World” and have been included on many chill out compilation albums including "Best of 2011 Lounge" "Erotic Affairs" "Saint Tropez Summer Session" "Hed Kandi" to name but a few.
The sophomore release DEEPER THAN THE SEA follows on from where HAPPY HOUR IN THE GENE POOL left off, continuing the rich pallet of downtempo beats, chilled out grooves, sultry vocals and guest artist collaborations from Bajka, Soul Sista Shakti and Margo Rey. With twelve original tracks, four vocal and eight instrumental the overall vibe is a luxurious mix of chilled out downtempo ranging from light vocal to deeper dubs, glitch and experimental electronica musings. Electric pianos abound and the use of flugal horn and muted trumpet adds an element of cool jazz into the mix, creating a truly eclectic listening experience. Deep and poignant, yet shallow enough to wade in with friends while sipping cocktails.
EVOLVE has recently partnered with WATER MUSIC RECORDS, an electronic music label based in Los Angeles, California with over 270 albums and singles released to date. The label is known mostly for its compilation albums such as “Chill Out Lounge,” “Tantra Lounge” and "Jazz Lounge” plus many others. The first release for EVOLVE on the WMR label is AFTER HOURS, a compilation of 14 of the most chilled out tracks taken from the first two releases.
