The wind blows, just off-kilter

The wind blows, just off-kilter

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global chill chart, 1st in the global chill out chart, 2nd in the global jazz chart, 3rd in the global ambient chart and 4th in the global chillout chart.

This mix started with one album - Goats & Distortions 5 by Dictaphone. It's one of my 2021 favorites. The mix began with one song from that album, not knowing where it would go but the vibe was sort of off-kilter. Then I heard a new album on Lost Tribe Sound, Departures by mastroKristo, and I knew where the mix would go.

This mix features a lot of wind instruments, although I'm not sure exactly what any of them are - clarinet, sax, soprano sax, oboe? A lot of the tracks are a bit askew, this is not smooth jazz. The music is atmospheric, moody, odd but the tracks all work perfectly together.

All the music is from 2021, some from a few of my favorite albums of the year. I've already mentioned Dictaphone - Goats & Distortions 5. Another fav is Pino Palladino & Blake Mills - Notes with Attachments. Then there are two albums from Lost Tribe Sound that haven't been released yet but they will both be on my year-end favorites list, mastroKristo - Departures and Alapastel - Ceremony.

Love this. Just 'off-kilter' enough for me. Thanks again.

I'm glad the mix hits just the right amount of off-kilter for you. Thanks for listening and commenting. Cheers!

Great mix, Dave! Better than expected, given its advertised quirkiness. Really lovely, and only a little "off-kilter." :-)

Haha, you're right I probably should have left the off-kilter out of the title. But that was the label on my folder full of music for this mix so I just kinda stuck with it. Mixes have a tendency to change form and mutate as they are growing. This definitely was the case here. Cheers!

I kind of love every single track on this mix, and it all fits together so well. Is there a single genre that unifies all of these? If so, please tell me so I can use it! :)

That's really a good question. I had a hard time writing up a description because I couldn't figure out what genre or niche it fit into. I'm you like the mix! Thanks for an excellent track. Cheers!
