Volume 11: Nu Age Psychedelik

 Podcast-Icon-60x60 flac2 tracklist

The best new age music is - and always was - a reverberation of psychedelic ambient music, rooted in sources including late 60's Pink Floyd, minimalist composers like Terry Riley, and ancient third-world folk musics. This mix collects new gems from artists working both within and in between these genres. Many are making music in the spirit of the earliest American new age music, before commercialism and relaxation muzak took it far from its roots.

Volume 12: Krautrockish

 Podcast-Icon-60x60 flac2 tracklist

Thanks to the TV soundtrack for 80's retro horror show Stranger Things, a whole lot of people are discovering or rediscovering classic Tangerine Dream and the whole Berlin-school sound, the great kosmische musik. The shock of the old and the joy of the new: this mix features sounds from new albums by some of the masters mixed with the cosmic pulse of their descendants. Music by Peter Baumann, Johannes Schmoelling (Loom), Paul Haslinger, Hans Joachim Roedelius (Qluster), Survive, Woob, Steve Roach, Circles, Ascendant and Sequential Dreams.
