The Memory of Trains

The Memory of Trains

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global ambient chart, 1st in the global chillout chart, 1st in the global chill chart and 1st in the global 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!

I keep coming back to this mix. Love trains and especially listening to trains "passing by" at night. Great mix!

Thanks a lot Low Light Mixes - love the theme of this one.
It inspired me to make my first mixcloud show: "Those Who Go: Music for Departures", which is the soundtrack of my own feelings of anticipation, excitement and nostalgia when departing to new places.

Your tracklist looks great! I'll definitely give it a listen. Anything with Eberhard Weber in it is worth a listen for me. Cheers!

As always it's a pleasure to listening to you. I used this subject once to play with. Not so musical. A bit more soundscaping. only a experiment. Thank you so much, to give us so many good vibes.
