Chart positions

This upload was 1st in the Chill chart , 2nd in the Electronic chart , 2nd in the Ambient chart and 2nd in the Chillout chart .

This is a follow up to an earlier mix Leaving the Station.

My favorite track in this mix is El Divisadero by Chris Watson from his wonderful field recording album, El Tren Fantasma. I've used this track before but it's so awesome I just had to use it here.

Another track in this mix that I've used before is Dialing in the Sun by Paul Ellis. It's an excellent berlin school cut with a great clicky-clack sound that works perfectly here.

The Elf Machine - Asymmetric Transition
Arovane - Passage to Nagoya
Locust - I'll Be There
Forrest Fang - Bothered
Paul Ellis - Dialing in the Sun
Chris Watson - El Divisadero

And then there's Steve Reich's landmark DIFFERENT TRAINS (1989) with Pat Metheny and the Kronos Quartet, with the great album cover (how I miss album art) with railroad tracks on the front and a parallel image of a guitar fret board on the back. See also Low Light Mixes' "Minimal Tendencies."

Good idea on Different Trains, if I do a follow up mix I'll try to work it in.

This is a great follow-up to "Leaving the Station." I like it even better. Seems a bit more melancholy? Smooth as always, but uncannily captures the variety of moods that accompany an extended train trip (I experienced these a couple times a year as a child). After the excitement of the beginning, then settling in (Dialing in the Sun), there is a beautiful absolutely spot-on passage at 33:20 where, just like a long hike, the journey is starting to get tedious, but in a meditative way. (Things Unknown) A rhythm has set in, we watch the unchanging landscape go by and settle into a reflective quiet inside, or maybe just a quiet flow with no thoughts...

Hypnotizing! Amazing how you build the sense of a train journey by weaving these pieces together.

Great mix as always :) I also got really hooked on the Chris Watson album. It has some mind bending in there for sure :) Been inspiring listening to your mixes the last couple of days :) Keep up the good work!
