Chart positions

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

As with so many of these mixes this one grew out of one particular recording. In this case it was The Revenant soundtrack by Ryuichi Sakamoto with Alva Noto. It's an absolutely gorgeous film score and I knew I needed to build a mix around it. Soundtracks compiled here include Ex Machina, Sicario, The Knick, Hateful 8, Her, Traffic, Sunshine and more.

The tracklist is too long to fit here but you can find it here.. You can also download these mixes there as well.

The mix features cuts from Cliff Martinez, Clint Mansell, Nils Frahm, Johann Johannsson, Ennio Morricone, Jon Hopkins, Nick Cave,Harold Budd, Ólafur Arnalds and more.

Best study music ever, keeps me calm and locks out distractions. Beautiful to listen to as well, of course.

All of my favourite screen composers and I know this stuff so well but there is nothing better than your mix. Thank you - I feel like I am rediscovering their power.

Thanks for checking out this mix! As I move from one mix to the next I tend to forget about earlier mixes. So with this one I'm like you, rediscovering the power of these soundtracks. Thanks for listening. Cheers!


Beautiful mix. Thanks for sending me the link. Big fan of Clint Mansell, Nils Frahm, Johann Johannsson, and Ólafur Arnalds so this is making my day.
