Chart positions

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

The inspiration for this mix is the Laurie Anderson track "Lighting Out For The Territories." The cut is atmospheric and moody. It immediately conjures up images of lonely highways, lonely songs and tires thumping on the pavement.

I had a hard time deciding between cuts that have a lonely, country road feel and songs that are more pulsating, driving, electronic. In the end I ended up with a little bit of everything.

Sparklehorse - Dreamt for Light...

Fun mix, but the one song that kept creeping into my head as I listened . . . AUTOBAHN!!!

Ah yes, I went back and forth many times trying to decide whether to include Autobahn or not. Obviously, I decided not to use it but looking back I think I probably should have squeezed it in.

Really well done. Enjoying this as background for this am painting, sunny Sunday winter breaking into spring. Well done⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Very Awesome and Smooth!!

Love it! As always, really captures the mood of the title topic. Brilliantly smooth transitions and even a sense of humor. I particularly liked the way a background rhythm track freshened up a somewhat moth-eaten old classic by the Cowboy Junkies. Was a big fan in the 80s, but have little patience for world-weary sound now. If I want melancholy, I'll stick with my instrumental ambient music--and Low Light Mixes.

You're making me revisit old mixes today, which is a good thing. I listened to this outside on the deck, in the dark with a beer. It was a fun ride. Thanks for listening!

I love this mix

Should've included 'Roads' by Portishead. It has white (pink?) noise on it. If you listen to it whilst driving it blocks out the sound of the road on your tyres intermittently to create a whoosh-whoosh-whoosh effect. I think the effect was created purely by chance and the song being called 'Roads' is just a strange coincidence. Check it out. The whole 'Dummy' album is a true classic, BTW.

Thanks for the heads on that Portishead track! I'll use it if I do a sequel.

Cool. You do great stuff. I like Orbital's classic 'In Sides' album for journeys as the tracks are so long and building. The 'Attached' track by them is great too. ;)

I know what you mean about that track. It's from their "Toolbox" album.
