About the show

Playing tracks by

Ulrich Schnauss, Between Interval, Al Gromer Khan, Johan Agebjörn, Ascendant and more.

Chart positions

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

This mix began with a recommendation from a follower on Mixcloud, Paul Asbury Seaman. I asked for any train tunes he could suggest and he really came through, mapping out a whole mix for me.

Here's what Paul said about the mix...

"Berlin School synth/electronica can be pretty kinetic and thus an obvious source for a train mix, but I was going for a more melancholy sound, the wistful feeling evoked by the sound of Far Away Trains Passing By (the title of the Ulrich Schnauss album represented here). My working title for this mix was "Locomotive Lullaby."

Thanks Paul!

Really enjoyed this- and it reminded me that I'd recently been thinking about a few train-infused ambient/electronic tracks (ahem) from the past...
Love on a real train- Tangerine Dream,
Last train to Lhasa- Banco de Gaia,
Suburban Train- Tiesto...

Good suggestions! As a matter of fact I used that Tangerine Dream track on an earlier train-themed mix, which you can find here...

I'm not familiar with the third one, but those first two are definitely classics.

Nice. Have often thought about doing one of these. You overlooked this fantastic record though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjzUX...

I love that Chris Watson track, it is one of my all time favorite train recordings. I've used it once or twice in earlier mixes. I'm probably going to do another train mix in the next month or two so I'll try to incorporate that cut. Cheers!

You could almost play the whole LP. One of the best train records ever. Kraftwerk is tempting as well, but probably too minimally propulsive.

Now that you mention Kraftwerk, I could probably use Trans Europa Express in there somewhere.
