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.
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.
Think what you want about Christmas- Nils Frahm’s Xmas Mixtapes are just beautiful to listen to, and the 2017 edition is no exception.
More than one hour of laid-back diversity mixed by Griff, the Australian master of Glitch Hop.
” If Jazzy Ambient Synth Porn was a genre, this would be its quintessential mix.” (Ivan Ave)

Pianist and electronic music composer Nils Frahm keeps up his christmas mixtape tradition and shares with us an hour of cosy pops and crackles on mellow vintage records.
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…
Dope beats for sophisticated music lovers: Two years after the release of his outstanding Through Hills album, Oldtwig is back and presents the exquisite first part of his Seaside series. The rich, emotional sounds of a piano and a trombone lead the listeners through deep, slightly melancholic senarios with a very cinematic vibe. Great to…
Kodiac Kid delivers a beautiful mix of Dope Beats and mellow Australian Glitch Hop tunes.
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.
The perfect soundtrack for any given day that feels like a Sunday: David Valera presents a soulful blend of Jazz, Funk, and other smooth grooves.
Guts news everyone: The third part of the Beach Diggin’ compilation series is about to be released on Heavenly Sweetness. Once again Guts & Mambo did a fantastic job in compiling what I would describe as the ultimate soundtrack for a tropical / subtropical lifestyle that is centred around large bodies of salt water. I…
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.
They’ve never met in person. Nevertheless they created a mesmerizing EP together – thanks to the internet. El Buho, an Englishman based in Amsterdam, and Barrio Lindo from Buenos Aires sent back and forth samples and audio tracks until they eventually finished History Of Colour, a 6-track EP that has just been released on ZZK…
Albion Collective just published an interview with Phaeleh, plus an exclusive DJ mix by the Bristolian master of ultra-mellow Bass Music. It’s deep, it’s uplifting, it’s highly melodic, it’s full of seismic bass lines, it’s packed with dubs and unreleased tracks… it’s everything that makes Phaeleh a truly outstanding figure.
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.
It was 19 years ago when Nightmares On Wax dropped Smokers Delight, an album I can listen to again and again and again, a timeless masterpiece of laid-back music that is among my all-time favourites. However, the musical history of George Evelyn aka DJ E.A.S.E goes back even further, and this documentary tells about it. Interesting…
