Pink Floyd are the original ambient rock band.
They are the end, and the beginning.
This is the music that got me into ambient sounds. Because of Pink Floyd, Ambient Music Guide exists.
The side of Pink Floyd I love most is psychedelic Floyd: exploratory, mostly instrumental and exquisitely spaced out. The mix is based on an FM radio broadcast I did in 2005 on 2MBS Sydney, but it's been reworked and expanded and draws mostly on the 2011 album remasters. Included are my unique edits and remixes of material from albums like Animals (1977), Wish You Were Here (1975) and A Saucerful Of Secrets (1968).
Skin up, lie back and fly.
