…and breathe

I started off making a mix with more vocal stuff in mind. But when I had problems loading in a Sigur Ros song, I just thought it best to just make a good solid mix.

I did manage to put in some vocal stuff, though. I'm not sure what language is sang in Low Light (a tip of my hat to DAVE MICHUDA); I would guess that it's Gaelic.

Also, the second tune is from a release that is mostly traditional folk-ish medieval music. This piece is great, I heard it the first time on SLEEPBOT ENVIRONMENTAL BROADCAST and decided to find and purchase the rest of the music. Glad I did.

Managed to slip in some not so ambient stuff, like Bombay Dub Orchestra (amazing stuff!), Carbon Based Lifeforms, and Lawrence (check out the rest of Childish Music, very interesting).

The last artist, CONELRAD (click his name for his music, please!!), I have to give made props to. One, for making really incredible music that I absolutely love. Two, for posting it all for FREE! And three, for corresponding with me about his music.

Thanks for listening, and support the artists!! 

turn on, tune in, sleep...

movements within time

I'm making a resolution to keep the comments on the posts a bit brief; I want the music to speak for itself.

I started out making a time-based mix, and for the most part, a bit of it turned out that way. But in the end, I just picked a bunch of stuff that I really enjoyed and wanted to share.

I picked some stuff I've had going around in my mind for a bit. There was a bit of a resist to put on some Brian Eno, since it's a win-win situation with ambient music, but one cannot resist. Of course, it also contains some Global Communication (which I love!), and an artist (Gopal) from the Magnatune label. I was going to save the Max Richter song (On The Nature Of Daylight) for a classical based mix, but I decided to go ahead and use it here. No apologies over that!

I actually did a mix of guitar based stuff before this, but I'm still mulling it over. Some of the moments are a bit shred-licious. I think that might be alright, it is all still VERY chill. Alright, enjoy the music, and of course support the artists!!
