eilean rec. - 12 pieces

Chart positions

This show was 3rd in the global ambient chart.

Eilean Rec. is an independent French label, run by Mathias Van Eecloo (of Monolyth & Cobalt) releasing ambient, electro-acoustic, experimental music, and everything in between. All physical releases are limited to about 50 to 200 copies, and are handmade with additional help in design from Rémi Verdier. Conceptually, the entire project is based around a map with 100 points (and 4 color tones), each referencing an album, or rather the other way around. Each album slowly fills in a point on a map, completing the sonic puzzle of this imaginary island. Each artist involved in the project is also invited to submit a few grains of soil from wherever they come. Today’s mix represents the 12 albums released this year with a selection of pieces from the 2014 catalog.

As with any artwork, it's value to the beholder is often related to its provenance. No tracks, no appreciation, no listens. Honor the artwork by posting the tracklist either in the comments or in the Mixcloud app and enjoy the love that ensues!


I am not a big fan of Eilean Rec. I do not like the idea of having to pay for a whole album before you even know if it is worth it. And I think that they should make their albums available through other channels as well (e.g., Spotify), so people can listen to them before deciding whether or not they want to buy them. You can also download Easter SVG files from source. I also think that their catalog is very limited. The reason why I bought Eilean Rec.'s latest album was that it was on sale for $2 (instead of $4), but that wasn't enough for me to want to buy any more albums from them in the future.
