Think of Christmas and all the traditions that come with it what you will, but the annual end-of-year mixtapes by neoclassic virtuoso Nils Frahm are a damn good reason to get all festive about the season.

It’s been real quiet around German producer Astroboter. So quiet actually that one might have thought he drifted into oblivion. However, now he’s back – and he didn’t lose his touch. This excellent mix is an appetizer for his forthcoming album Form & Void, to be released on 19th January 2018. And if it is…
