Mathias Van Eecloo has been extremely prolific with the curation of his very own Eilean Records. I honestly can’t keep up. This year alone, he has already put out 16 records, each one with a point on the imaginary map of music. At the end of 2016, Headphone Commute featured a mix with a selection from the imprint showcasing the catalog to the busy listener unable to consume individual records in time. This year we thought we’d do the same. So here’s the 2017 installment of eilean rec. music, compiled by Mathias himself, 16 tracks from 16 records, to reveal a few more points, for your ever-mapped out terrain.

I think I can say this has been my favourite HC mix to date - thoughtfully curated and seamlessly blended, delicate and subtle but always emotionally engaging. Thank you!


This was a different listen for me, thank you for the tunes to expand my experience! :)


all the artists are amazing, what a fine list!


pure ambient


One of my absolute favourite labels. I already fear the day they reach #100, because from what I understand at that point the label will cease to exist. (They're at #62 now)


it works better w/o playlist.

It is not so hard to include the playlist in here directly. I know you can do that much for us, listening while working.
