Fading Into Obscurity: As On Your Way You Go...

Fading Into Obscurity: As On Your Way You Go...

Playing tracks by

Andrew Wasylyk, Jon Hopkins, Otis Sandsjö, Peter Bark, Jef Gilson and more.

This is a mix of words and music for my dad, who made his transition on February 16th of last year. The music is primarily selected works from releases that got me through that first year of his physical absence. My personal soundtrack for the "new normal," I suppose.

More information on the making of this mix and the music contained within it can be found at the following blog post:

I appreciate you for listening. Thank you.



This hit me hard man... many similarities my father also passed on the 16th but of March, I too was the only one in the room. Really great stories man, hit me right in the feels. Gil Scott running is actually on my running mix, so good! Thank you for this and the wonderful memories it brought back, maybe a couple tears but even that felt great. Thank you!!

Respect, man. Extremely thankful and grateful to read that you sat down with this one and to know that you connected with this one on a personal level. Very happy and relieved to have it out in the world now. Thank you so much for listening. :-]

Manny Faces You do such good work, my friend. I often think about my pops who, in life and in death, became something of a muse for what I do now... It's nice to have a soundtrack for those times. Thanks for this.
