New Ambient 2018 mix series


New Ambient 2018 is an ongoing mix series across the year, spotlighting choice tracks from recently released albums and EP's including re-releases of older titles.

Ambient, chillout, spacemusic, trip-hop, downtempo breaks, environmental, psyambient, neoclassical, post-rock, instrumental folk, ambient techno/trance, new age, ambient dub and more.

Volume 1: Slowbeats Deluxe

  Podcast-Icon-60x60 

Outstanding new downtempo instrumentals from Mystical Sun, Thomas Lemmer & Christoph Sebastian Pabst, Catpilot, Kalpataru Tree, Essence Project, Evadez, Eric Shans, FOTN and more. The spark for this one came when I heard Moscow-based electronica artist Catpilot and his pearler of a debut album "Homecoming"- a tuneful, ecstatic, near-perfect pastiche of different UK ambient dance and electronica styles from the last 25 years, honed with razor sharp production ears and some fine musicianship.
