Update: sequel mix: https://www.mixcloud.com/musicophilia/musicophilia-evensong-1985-1995/

The spiritual successor to the '1981 - Heart' post-punk mix, 'The Dawning' traces the most emotionally evocative aspects of post-punk and new wave as they grew into some of the the most sophisticated adult-oriented pop music of the mid and late 1980s. Dry, angular guitars, funk bass and fuzzy analogue synths transform into carefully treated spare piano, jazz-inspired fretless and upright bass, and solid-state synths, samplers and sequencers, often married with strings, brass and woodwinds. The canvas may be larger, the screen wider, but the emotional heft is, if anything, enhanced by the relative polish employed by artists entering full artistic maturation, unafraid of beauty. A soundtrack of autumn becoming winter, equal parts city lights and sunrise.
