Best Albums 2017 Mix #1 - Atmospheric Grooves compiled by Mike G

Best Albums 2017 Mix #1 - Atmospheric Grooves compiled by Mike G

Playing tracks by

Si Matthews, LSG, Animat, Bonobo, Irresistible Force and more.

Chart positions

This show was 2nd in the global psychedelic chart, 10th in the global ambient chart, 10th in the global chillout chart, 12th in the global downtempo chart and 13th in the global electronica chart.

My annual Best Albums mix is once again in two parts. "Sounding The Deep" features generally beatless music, while "Atmospheric Grooves" is much more rhythmic.

MIX #1: ATMOSPHERIC GROOVES. Starting with a gorgeous Si Mathews lullaby, we dive into 140 minutes of multi-coloured groove. The mix snakes it way through seductive downtempo shades of exotic breaks, lounge, dub, techno and trance including Bonobo, Irresistible Force and Carbon Based Lifeforms, before a final 30-minute serve of electronica epics featuring Sasha, L.S.G, Mystical Sun and Jean-Michel Jarre.

These two mixes are based on Ambient Music Guide's Best Albums Of 2017 reviews feature. Read them at http://ambientmusicguide.com/best-of-year/best-albums-of-2017

As ENLEE said, you killed the mix as a whole and absolutely slayed the end. Sasha / LSG / Jean-Michel Jarre, doesn't get much better than that.

Thanks mate, glad you appreciate the tunes and the effort :) :)

Another one added to the favorites, you never disappoint Mike!. Also, holy moses how did I miss that live version of Xpander until now. It's beautiful, one of the best EDM tracks ever produced, glad to see an orchestral version of it.

Note how this live version of Xpander is only 112bpm - the original was 130bpm - yet it's as storming as ever.
