DJ Merck - Spring Evenings Ambient Mix

Playing tracks by

Boredoms, Marconi Union, The World on Higher Downs, Pivot, Brokeback and more.

On today’s podcast I am honored to host a mix by Gabe Koch, sharing his selections under the DJ Merck moniker. If you don’t know who Gabe Koch is, you really should! In January of 2000 Koch started the now legendary Merck Records, which seriously shaped my music taste with revolutionary sounds by Machine Drum, Proem, Lackluster, Secede, Tycho, Malcom Kipe, Helios, Deru, Ilkae, Kettel, Quench, Blamstrain, and way too many others to list here! It would not be an understatement to say that Merck Records still holds a very special place in my heart (and on my record shelf), and that I feel incredibly obliged for all the work Koch put into the label, even if after over 50 releases the label closed its doors in 2007. So without further ado I present you with ambient selections by Gabe Koch!

Atmospheric mix of peaceful music. Wonderful.


One of my favorite podcasts, I love to listen to when I can not fall asleep or in a train on the way home.

Quite sorry I kicked a foot (soccer) ball into his face now - this is a sweet mix - I try similar but get carried away by Balearic beats/early Ibiza sound & end up losing the pacing x djAnwe

Lisa Marie

Likely to have a pure delightful listen once more although it ruins a new way of demour


This is one of my favorite mixes so far. I love the atmosphere of the tracks! Thanks a lot!

special and, i can feel, how much this means to you by your passionate intro.. and the record shelf, really got me... i want a record player... over 200 records here and no player.. i can feel the music, how can a profoundly deaf person explain how great these tunes are...... genius...
