Playing tracks by
Aphex Twin, Michael Brook, The Future Sound of London, Human Mesh Dance, Voodoo Warriors of Love and more.
This is the chill moment you'll be craving now that summer is upon us full force ... a mix that asks you to simply let go … and then transports you, at various speeds and and in various styles from the austere aural luxuries of Aphex Twin and Michael Brook to the authoritative soundscape of The Future Sound of London and the unsettling cinematics of Terre Thaemlitz.
But the most astonishing and affecting track here is still "Moonwalk" from Daniel Kobialka's 1982 release Dream Passage. While the work of Aphex Twin (particularly the opening track "Blue Calx") unquestionably represents the defining sound of deep space ambient, this lesser-known work by classical violinist Kobialka meets that standard and then moves beyond, making a trip that could be dark, cold and sterile into an incandescent, emotionally-charged journey.
Respect to MixClouders Low Light and Quiet Music for Loud Times -- their mixes inspired me to rework my own deep ambient sets from the 90's.
