Best Ambient of 2018 - #BestOf2018

Best Ambient of 2018 - #BestOf2018

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global chill chart, 1st in the global instrumental chart, 2nd in the global ambient chart and 2nd in the global chillout chart.

It's that time of year...Best Of lists galore.

It's also a good time to let folks know about Mixcloud Select. Subscribe directly to get closer to my shows. Listen offline, upfront tracklists, unlimited playback and more to come. This also means revenue flows in all the right directions: to Select Creators, like me, and the artists we play.

Now, back to this mix. It's hardly definitive but it's a good collection of some of the excellent ambient/electronic music I loved this year. The tracklist is long so I will post it in the comments. I'll also post a longer list of favorite instrumental albums which is longer than the mix because I couldn't fit all of them in and still keep the length reasonable. And some of the albums didn't necessarily fit the vibe of the mix.

Coming next week - An Ambient Xmas. Cheers! #BestOf2018

Beautiful selection - as always. Thank you :-)

Brilliant mix! I listened to it on 3 different occasions: about two weeks ago while I was driving, yesterday when I was chopping and picking up wood, and I finished listening to it today while I was checking social media, mails, etc. It really added a special flavor to those particular moments, thank you! :D


Great Music. It makes me so happy!


Hello, nice mix. I enjoyed it very much. Here the video to this set.

Nice one, Dave. Lots of my favourites on here too this year.

Hi Josh - I'm so glad you liked the mix! Although I don't know if I would use this for a renovation soundtrack. 😉 I have to do some painting & scraping next week & I think I'll need something loud to keep me going. If you ever want to put together another awesome guest mix I'm always ready for one. Cheers & Happy Holidays my friend!
