Housey warmth, technoid ecstasy and ambientesque calms, casual uplift and melodic hypnotism, all rolled into one. Good stuff from Sam Goku.
Skimming some cream off the rich goodness that is the Beach Diggin’ compilation series, Quetzal provides us with 55 minutes of sunkissed mellowness.
So much good music out there at the moment. Like this DJ mix of exclusively unreleased tracks by Dark Sky, for instance.
Long gone are the days when terms like psychedelic or trance were reserved for the junkie space pirates inhabiting the subculture with this very name, and when these terms were used by outsiders with a somewhat derogatory connotation. While major Psytrance festivals have turned into a neo-spiritual version of EDM events, urban hippsters and other…
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.…
A brand new Addision Groove DJ mix. Spells out to: We’re in for almost 2 hours of bass-heavy goodness from one of Bristol’s finest. “It’s a bit of an epic one for these epic times we are living in”, he says in the complimentary interview over at Ilian Tape.
Good things are oozing out of the gaps between House, Electro, Bass, Breaks and… Trance. Intriguingly psychedelic things, that is. Read all about it here and embark on the journey by pressing the play button below.
A cinematic mix of Ambient and Electronica by Wanderwelle, clearly living up to the name of the label / podcast series.
A man who needs no introduction, keeping up his mellow end-of-year tradition.
A name that brings back Nag Champa flavoured memories of days spent between flourescent depictions of mushrooms and eleves: Bluetech. The North American artist had quite a unique sound already 15 years ago, when his mellow Downtempo Psychedelia were released on quality imprints like Aleph Zero or Interchill. Pleasure to hear that he didn’t lose…
Thirteen years ago, in October 2006, one of my DJ mixes was part of the (long discontinued) DJs Anonymous series. Quite a trippy affair revolving around melodic bangers from Stephan Bodzin, Thomas Schumacher, Extrawelt and the like. Your browser does not support the audio element. Download link
Bass-heavy grooves with a jazzy edge, recorded live at 3000Grad Festival 2019. You’ll need some proper speakers or headphones to feel it.
“All manner of dub, flowing from the oceanic stylings of the opening cut to the mid-way point’s deep atmospheres and the closing cut’s floating pads—all of which are underpinned by deep low-slung grooves.” Via XLR8R.
A Strangely Isolated Place shares a great recollection of some of the Ambient, Downbeat and mellow Electronica goodness that made 2018 another year of fantastic new music.
One hour of mellow dopeness.
“I recorded a mix for Resident Advisor stringing together an hour of danceable club tracks without any kick drums. I’ve been playing a lot of this stuff in my sets over the last few years and have been meaning to record a mix like this for a while.” Quite an exciting approach. Even more so…
One hour of music that has been resonating with my soul during these past years, most of which I spent in the close proximity of great bodies of salt water.
Dutch duo Wanderwelle is responsible for some rather exciting music at the moment, both in the fields of Ambient and Dub Techno. Their recent DJ mix for Monument takes us on a smooth ride through electronic genres and tempi.
Fourty-two songs from a wild range of music genres, sampled and mixed together into a one-hour cinematic journey: Den Sorte Skole do their thing.
Adam Freeland – a man who needs no further introduction to readers of this blog. He just dropped a brand new DJ mix for Solid Steel Radio and, no big surprise here, it’s pretty damn eclectic, diverse and catchy. Also he told some words about his life in the desert and his most recent creative…
