This Is Pete Namlook volume 1 mixed by Mike G

This Is Pete Namlook volume 1 mixed by Mike G

About the show

Playing tracks by

Pete Namlook & Richie Hawtin, Pete Namlook & Wolfram Spyra, Pete Namlook & Klaus Schulze, Pete Namlook & Gabriel Le Mar, Pete Namlook and more.

Compiled & mixed by Mike G @ Rubycon Sound, March-April 2014.

The first in a series of mixes remembering the sonic wonders of Pete Namlook.

I'm not going to try and cover all bases or do best-of collections; these are simply tracks from Namlook's solo and collborative albums that are special to me.

Dutch-born but based for most of his life in Germany, this extremely prolific Namlook (1960-2012, born Peter Kuhlmann) was one of the high priests of new-school ambient - ambient techno, trance, lounge and numerous other downtempo spinoffs of dance music. He was also an accomplished jazz and rock guitarist.

In its 20 year history his record label Fax released some of definitive chillout albums of the age. Namlook stands alongside a handful of other names such as The Orb, Biosphere and Mixmaster Morris as one of the originators of ambient's resurgence via dance music, beginning in the late 80's/early 90's.

Thanks for the magic, Pete. Your gift lives on.

About half of these are old favorites. Thanks to you the other half are new favorites. GREAT mix from a great composer. A fitting tribute I'd say!

I made a big mistake many years ago beginning to listen to what I thought would be an Ambient Pink Floyd cover and dismissing it. Pete later pointed out to me it was never meant to be a cover just a tribute. My favourite track is Sky Lounge he did with Biosphere but I've not heard all his output so looking forward to hearing this series.
