Walking with myself

March 22nd, 2015


Earlier this year I quickly threw together some tunes for a walk in Madison, WI.  I liked the way it sounded so much that I made a few changes and made a proper mix out of it.

Most of the music is fairly new, half are from last year, with the oldest cut being the Mojave 3 track from 2000.  As usual, most of the tracks are laid back.  Even a loud cut like JM by Strand of Oaks is slow.

This is a mix that you can also find on my second Mixcloud profile, Elements of Sound, which I mentioned in a previous post.

This mix was started because of one new tune - "Witch Season" from the new Infraction release by Offthesky and Pleq.  I love that track and what better way to tell people about it than a new mix.

With that song as a starting point things fell into place very nicely.  All the music in the mix is fairly recent.  Most is from 2014 or 2015 with the exception of the cut from The New Honey Shade which is from 2011.

The mix as a whole is pretty straight forward ambient.  Straight forward but awesome ambient.  I love the tracks from dirk serries, tonepoet, The Circular Ruins, Janek Schaefer, Spheruleus...oh heck, I adore every cut in this mix.

All of the albums used in this mix are available on Bandcamp so I'll link to them here in order of appearance in the  mix...
