The stars my destination

I have been planning on doing a stargazing mix for a long time and then a new EP by 36 came out and I knew I had to get cracking on a new mix.


The new EP is called Sine Dust and it's excellent.  All the tracks have a similar feel to them and that is by design.  36 artist, Dennis Huddleston, says "I wanted to make an EP that had a strictly defined sound and theme, which continued from beginning to end, using a limited array of instruments to tell the story."  And it's a good story.  The synths have a sort of retro feel without being kitschy or obvious.  The touch here is just perfect.  And the tracks work nicely for an astronomical theme.

36 - Sine Dust


The 6th track in the mix is from an excellent new compilation from Tessellate Recordings - Earthtones Vol. 3.  Just like the other two comps, this is a great collection of tunes with a nice variety of sounds and textures.

The Fripp tune is one of a bunch freebies that his DGM Live website has available.  I highly recommend spending some time there and looking through all the oddities they have available for download.

The rest of the tunes I think work rather well as a soundtrack to laying on your back and staring up at the night sky.  Whether it's looking for a meteor streaking through the atmosphere or gazing at a blood moon, this mix should transport you off planet.

Enjoy
