Winter Chill Mix

January 2013 has already seen an embarrassment of riches when it comes to downtempo, chilled and ambient music. There’s a lot of my “old favourite” artists in this mix, and if you like what you hear, you really do owe it to yourself to pick up the new lps and eps by all of those involved.

This is 90 minutes of horizontal listening music for you to get lost in – spacious soundscapes with the odd delicate melody tinkling away like snowdrops falling from the sky. Starting off with some drone from the likes of Mountain and Heathered Pearls, it gently builds up to a near subliminal 120bpm pulse, reaching a climax with Falty DL and The XX before winding back down with Four Tet, Burial, and then the “bell trilogy” of Snow Palms, Bonobo and Pantha du Prince before one final euphoric jolt of Nosaj Thing’s Moderat-flavoured Eclipse/Blue.

I hope you enjoy this mix, and encourage you to share it. Soundtrack the long dark nights and enjoy getting lost in the music.

One thought on “Winter Chill Mix

  1. Your Winter Chill Mix is very nice. Mellow and sweet. I still haven’t heard all of your mixes but do intend to as I really dig Electronic music, especially chillout, dubstep, chillstep, techno and trance. Thanks for the mixes!
