Illuvia – Isolatedmix 107

A beautiful selection of liquid Drum’n’Bass tunes, including many classics from the golden age of the genre.

A wonderful title that comes with an equally wonderful artwork, and the actual music is wonderfully…

Ambient has been the big thing recently, what with all the dance producers putting out mixes and all that. Max Cooper has also been the big thing, not only recently, and especially on this blog. Now this mastermind of synthesized music shares with us a new Ambient mix. And, as it is the case so…

FWD144 – KiloWatts Live Set

Halfway through this 2-hour live set you might well start wondering if all these tunes were really produced by only one person, and one person alone. Transitioning effortlessly from ambientesque soundscapes to mellow Downtempo grooves and trippy Breaks, from glitchy rhythms to dope beats, leading us through deeply psychedelic patches just to soar up into…

Creaksbox

Creaksbox is a music player for an interacitve, ever-changing, infinite soundtrack created by Hidden Orchestra and artist / developer Jan Chlup.

Jon Jones – HOCast #36

Seventy-three minutes of All-Aussie goodness. Well, kinda. Jon Jones recorded a mixtape using exclusively tracks from Australian record labels. “It includes a blend of ambient, downtempo, trance-like sounds with a quirky flavour,” the young producer describes his selection. There’s more: “The mix and the songs within it are inspired by the traditional landowners of Australia,…

Natthall

Sebastian Mullaert’s four-on-the-floor music for modern trance dance rituals fills a unique and extremely elegant universe of sound – yet it’s a closed system. So it’s amazing to hear the Swedish producer doing something truly groundbreaking again. Working with musicians of the Tonhalle Orchester Zürich, he went far beyond the scope of some classical musicians…

David August – Tomorrow Is Forever Mixtape

An album tells a lot about the character of the musician/s who produced it. However, a mixtape can be just as personal because it channels sonic emotions and aural atmospheres through the filter that is the human mind of the person who created it. Also, it speaks volumes about the musical horizion of this person.…

Phaeleh – The Monday Is Okay Mix

The grand master of so-sweet-and-melodic-it’s-almost-kitsch-but-it’s-not Bass Music presents a beautiful mix of deep Ambient and Downbeat tunes for Ransom Note. „I’ve done chilled and ambient mixes in the past which covered my influences over the years, whereas this mix features a lot more recent material of mine and stuff I’d get on promo that I…

Astroboter – Intenpsyfication Mix

German beatmaker and guitarist Astroboter delivers a magnificent mixtape packed with psychedelic music from various genres: I’ve been gathering songs for this mix since my last mix called “Game Of Tones”. It starts wild, breaks into colorful Psychedelic Rock, gets mixed with ethnic Jazz & Dustbowl Blues and ends into an infinite Ambient meditation.

Submotion Orchestra: Slumber Session

An extremely mellow DJ mix from one of my favourite producers: Ruckspin. Representing the Submotion Orchestra, his 7-person Post-Dubstep / Freestyle Jazz / Ambient ensemble, he delivers a one-hour musical journey through different genres from the laid-back side of things: I tried to fit a variety of moods into this mix; from the simple-but-effective songs…
