Details

This is the second of three new instalments of this series “Winter Waves & Cryptic Caves”, the first I did around nine years ago. Since then it’s been on the back of mind to do further mixes in this vein as we go into another dark, long winter. It’s the time of year where we hole up in the shadows of our homes and reflect on the year past and recharge for the new one right around the corner. It’s the soundtrack for staring out of windows, staying in bed for a few extra hours and catching up on all of the low level activities that we never had a chance to do throughout the course of the year.

This mix, Drones & Tones, is the most minimal and meditative, focusing on ambience and sound design. It includes artists old and new — strangers, friends and peers I know expanding in that universe of sound, creating new worlds to travel in and out of.
