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.
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.
Always a good reason to spend summer in the beautiful North East of Germany: 3000Grad Festival.
While the Psytrance scene seems to be stuck in an endless loop of the same artists playing the same sound for many years already, other electronic music genres are getting deeper, more ethereal and even psychedelic in very fresh and innovative ways. What happens at the Ranch-o-Relaxo gatherings in Australia is a perfect example for…
More than one hour of laid-back diversity mixed by Griff, the Australian master of Glitch Hop.
Fact described Yagya as “one of Techno’s best-kept secrets” some years ago. Here the Icelandic producer takes us on a melodic journey from beatless Ambient to Downbeat to Dub Techno and back.
Two hours of ecstatic mellowness, including quite some tunes by Tycho himself.
A musical journey from Dope Beats to mellow dancability and back: Dolph delivers the goods and proves himself once again to be a highly eclectic DJ.
Kabanjak is back with bang. Today the German beatmaker dropped The Dooza Tapes Vol. 1, and they are oozing with his signature dopeness. The bass lines are so fat and heavy that they might ask you to book two contigious seats if you wanna listen to this album on the airplane. Dynamic live drums, Trap-ish…
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…
Grooving somewhere between an afterhour dancefoor and the Chillout, Prado delivers a DJ mix that is wonderfully deep and trippy.
This DJ mix by Mateo is just as much deep, ethereal World Music as it is slow, shuffling club groove.
A steady flow of laid-back 4-4 beats leads through the main part of this new mix by El Búho, lending it a feeling of mellow dancability. There’s a lot of Latin American sounds in here, but there’s also a fair bit of World Music from other parts of this planet.
Seventy-seven minutes of bass-heavy awesomeness, delivered by Griff, my favourite artist from the thriving Australian Glitch Hop scene. The warm and organic sound that is so typical for the Melbourne based artist has a very human, almost hand-played vibe to it. Also I love how it is deeply psychedelic in the most progressive, most forward-thinking…
A deep and melodic amalgamation of genres like Downbeat, Dub Techno, Break Beats and Electronica, creating a 72-minute musical journey.
It’s round 3 of Fábel’s SlowCooker Sessions, and the London based producer keeps up a remarkably high level of dopeness. Just like the previous episodes this beautiful mixtape is eclectic, jazzy and laid-back as it can be.
Dolph is one of the great artists I discovered through my work with Acker Records / 3000°. This amazing freestyle mix is a true Schatzkiste, a treasure chest, full of musical gems. The Berlin based artist starts with almost half an hour of pure dopeness before he drops the first 4/4 kickdrum. The musical journey…
Fábel delivers his second SlowCooker Session and again it ticks all the boxes for a really good DJ mix. Compared to the first part this one is somewhat heavier on the beats, the vibe feels more stimulating, towards the end the groove could clearly be described as danceable. However, just like SlowCooker Session Vol.1 it…
Multi-insturmentalist Fábel delivers a wonderfully smooth blend of deep and dope tunes, including quite some tracks and edits by the Spanish producer himself. Shifting between Trip Hop, Downbeat, Electronica and Instrumental Hip Hop, there’s an extremely mellow and jazzy vibe to this mix.
