Casa Tranquila (for M:cast radio)
"Ambient" is 1 of those genres which has produced both works of genius, and absolute rubbish & DJs who play it can often fall foul of confusing the latter with the former - here, thankfully, the 15 years experience of Rich Ears shows up well, and he has produced a mix where the quality starts high and stays that way throughout. While it features undisputed masters such as Eno, Yokota, and Black Dog, lesser known but also excellent artists such as David Bickley and Matthew Florianz are also included, and he's not afraid to delve into areas more thought of as 'modern classical', either, with the piano of Olafur Arnalds appearing among the synths. The best ambient always keeps its feet on the ground and offers real musical depth as well as a shiny surface- this well chosen mix achieves that with ease, showing the genre's best artists in top form, and is beautifully crafted by a man who really knows how to do it. A rare pleasure.
