Optic Echo Presents - Best Vinyl of 2021

Optic Echo Presents - Best Vinyl of 2021

Playing tracks by

Clare Rousay, Dialect, Andrew Tuttle & Padang Food Tigers, A Winged Victory for the Sullen, Good Weather for an Airstrike and more.

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global instrumental chart, 1st in the global experimental chart, 1st in the global eclectic chart and 5th in the global ambient chart.

The current Best of the Year feature is well underway, and besides dragging you through all of the amazing albums that you’ve missed, I also think that you should be able to hear some, or, in this case, specifically the best vinyl of the last year, as selected by Mike Jedlicka. It’s a beautiful journey that has introduced me to some new music as well, and I’m forever grateful for this special friendship that we’ve maintained over more than a decade. This is our 11th year in sharing this music, and if you like the choices, be sure to check out our past archive of Optic Echo Presents mixes. As usual with our podcasts – less words and more music, and please, be sure to support the featured artists and labels!

Any way to fix rhe Mixcloud tracklist display? No idea which artist is playing. Nice mix tho!

Thank you for providing a tracklist ad there isn't a mixcloud in app listing, however there is no way of knowing which artist is playing. But the effort is appreciated. Shazam or Soundhound to the rescue!

Yeah, I have no idea why the tracklisting is not working - I always include it as part of every mix (and I see it for myself at the top right now).


спасибо :)

Absolutely lovely. Loving all these selections!

Excellent mix. Thank you


So Amazingly Beautiful. Sincerely inspiring mix. Perfect mix of melancholia, glitch-fuzz, twilight haze, muffled euphoria, and sedation.
Thank you for the excellent temporary escape from the pandemic stress.
