Sequoia Records founders David & Steve Gordon have been creating and producing bestselling music since 1982 and are among the originators of the ambient music genre, pioneering the use of nature sounds in meditation music. Sequoia Records continues to expand on its mission of "Music with Vision" by consistently adding exceptional new artists and releases. Sequoia supports the environment by using only soy-based inks and recycled paper, and by donating a portion of the proceeds from its music sales to organizations such as the Rainforest Action Network, the U.N.

Sequoia Groove was established by Sequoia Records founders David & Steve Gordon in 2002 to showcase global artists who are creating Downtempo Electronica - the music movement which had its roots in the chill-rooms of the DJ-driven European dance club scenes of London, Paris, Berlin, Ibiza and beyond. These compilations of non-stop mixes of various artists and solo releases from brilliant mixologists blend the best elements of electronica, world-beat, dance, ethnic / tribal, jazz, trip-hop, funk and downtempo into a newly emerging sound that is the new soundtrack for chilling-out - the perfect groove for relaxing - from evenings with friends, late nights, unwinding after work, spa treatments and the healing arts, to a tastefully elegant soundtrack for your next party.
