The Way Home

The Way Home

Chart positions

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

Earlier this year I was asked by the folks at Lifted Icons to do a guest mix. It was unique because I did two 20 min sets that were incorporated into a larger 2-hour mix.

The parameters for my mixes were as follows:
1. A lonely, melancholic wander through the void between stars
2. A triumphant end for our struggle to the stars

You can find the 2-hour mix at Lifted Icons here... https://www.mixcloud.com/LiftedIcons/cartographer/

I liked how everything turned out. It was especially fun to cut the 2nd mix as it had a few louder tunes than I normally use. I decided to put my two parts of the Lifted Icons mix into one new mix. I added a few tunes to make it longer and I changed much of part 1 but kept the same "drifting in the void" feel. The transition from melancholic wander to triumphant return starts at the 22:28 mark with Underworld. The title for the mix comes from the Tony Anderson cut at 27:05. It fit the journey perfectly.

Hi Ian - thanks so much for your support! I have always said that I would make these mixes even if I was the only that ever heard them so when folks like yourself enjoy them it's icing on the ambient cake. Thanks again for listening! Cheers!

Oh, and also the Lowlight track, "Memories of JJ", it sounded very similar to this one track in "Quiet Night Quiet Stars".

Now I'll have to dig up that mix, which I haven't heard in ages, to look for that track.

This is pretty much the perfect space adventure mix, excellent inspiration for writing both cooler character moments and upbeat action scenes. Found two new favourite tracks, "The Way Home" and "Red Giant". Thanks so much for this brilliant selection of music!
