Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global ambient chart and 1st in the global experimental chart.

After more than six months in the making, I am excited to present you with the second volume of my Residuum mix series, showcasing my favorite pieces in reductionist microsound and isolationist ambiance. Just as the first volume, released more than two years ago, the transitions in this collection have been meticulously curated for a deep listening experience. This mix is best experienced with a really good pair of open-back headphones, preferably in the horizontal position – do not operate any machinery while listening, as mild disorientation may occur.

An amazing journey for me. Both Vol 1 and Vol 2 are incredible and for those of us who suffer (and "suffer" IS the correct word) from Insomnia, these are invaluable. I also believe both mixes could be helpful for people with ptsd, anxiety, chronic pain and depression. (Many, if not all, sit under the same big umbrella) I also believe the "isolationism" would to be a fantastic way to deal with ADHD. I have put both Volumes in my playlist for reading . They are multifaceted mixes. Amazing! You have created something so very special and I know I will be taking this journey very often. Words cannot express my gratitude. I hope there is a vol 3, 4 etc, in the future; maybe one yearly? Peace to all, everywhere.
