This show was 1st in the global experimental ambient chart, 29th in the global electronic chart and 34th in the global ambient chart.
James Osland is a musician, photographer and owner of the humble - yet potent - experimental label, Elm Records.
One really gets a sense of what inspires and drives James' work because his music, photography and vision for the label seem to, on occasion, blur into one. Places, memory and people shift and warp into the parts used to construct his art and interests. James' music has appeared on labels such as Flaming Pines, Whitelabrecs, Shimmering Moods, Sonospace and Rusted Tone; however, he's also occasionally graced the catalogue of his own label - the aforementioned Elm Records.
Tonight's show features music from both James and his label before the mix he very kindly put together for us.
