“For me, personally, a mix has the most impact when it feels like I’m watching a movie. With ups, downs, some drama, sentiment, moment of joy, climax and anticlimax. And yes: tension and release.”
Another fine Ambientblog Exclusive to celebrate the end of the year and the beginning of a new one: a FREE DOWNLOAD of Robert Kroos’ 30 minute ‘Brainwave Set’
Sit down, relax, and let Robert Kroos take you down to the very lowest (Delta) frequencies..
Celebrating 13 years of Ambientblog with an exclusive (and free) Machinefabriek track download “Transform II” * Michel Banabila‘s latest album re-explores his musical past (and also contains the original “Transform”)
Headphone Commute, Ambientblog and Slowcraft Records are proud to present a unique mix by a colleague and partner in crime, Peter van Cooten, of beautiful works from a beautiful couple: James Murray and
“Follow me into a movie that you might want to see sometime… a movie that’s happening in the back of your own head…”
And remember: “use your ears, not your prejudices”…
What better way to start a new year with a brand new mix?!?
And a very special one: a collaboration mix with Headphone Commute‘s Mike Lazarev, in which we take five minutes for each turn without knowing the others tracklist. The result: Bipolar!
James Murray‘s live set (October 8, Tivoli/Vredenburg, Utrecht) for Fluister is available as a Name-Your-Price download.
Ambientblog is VERY proud to present this exclusive (free!) download from Michel Banabila: a 38 minute ambient soundscape created for Gerco de Ruijter‘s installation Dissolve. (Free lossless Bandcamp download)
“Life can only be remembered backwards, but it must be lived forwards.”
The central piece provides the title for this mix: Solace – “Comfort in sorrow, misfortune. Consolation.”
This Fovea Hex track literally breathes consolation in every single note, so it seemed a good starting point for this mix.
It is also one of the few tracks in the mix that are included in its full length.
Even though there are quite some dark moments in this mix, I hope it may bring some ‘solace’ – if needed.
(If not needed: even better…! It still can be nice to feel a bit melancholic for a while, can’t it?)
Around december 2007, I made a mix from Soccer Commitee’s music and music from Machinefabriek.
This mix is never published here before, because it was made for the dutch NPS-Folio radio show broadcast.
I don’t usually post the Folio broadcasts here, but it’s time to make an exception to that rule: a recent social media post about the beauty of Soccer Committee’s album sC made me decide it was time to dust off the 2007 mix and publish it again.
Because it’s still as powerful now as it was back then, almost 10 years ago.
And suddenly, without any warning, there’s good news from the ever-enigmaticAkira Rabelais:
His entire back-catalogue is now available on Bandcamp – which is good news because most of these title were unavailable for a long time now.
And at the same time a new album is released: The Little Glass (available in digital as well as in physical format).
A good opportunity to re-visit the 2006 Spelle Special Radio Show, featuring music from Spelle…, some remixes, ánd exclusive unreleased material especially submitted by Akira Rabelais for this occasion!
On October 26, 1985, Dr. Emmett “Doc” Brown arrives in his flying DeLorean time machine and persuades Marty McFly and his girlfriend, Jennifer Parker, to come back to the future with him.
They arrive on October 21, 2015
Only now we found out why they chose this date!
‘Vapor’ is a compilation of music from the Miasmah label created by its owner Erik K. Skodvin (a.k.a. Svarte Greiner.
It’s a treat for all those that can visit the Miasmah label nights this weekend, but maybe even more for those who can’t be there!
This month ambientblog celebrates its 10th anniversary.
Here’s a short preview of the anniversary project: a special mix containing exclusive tracks especially submitted for the occasion!
Apart from the download version of the mix and all separate exclusive tracks, there will also be a credit card USB version featuring the mix, all tracks ánd extras!
A beautiful little gem that hold over 60 hours (!!!) of sonic immersion!
This mix is especially created to celebrate the 25th release on Michel Banabila’s Tapu Records (which will be released later this year).
In this mix (in fact a follow up of “Streets, Dreams and Memories“), all tracks & samples are chosen from the Tapu Records catalogue and so it displays the versatility of Banabila’s work – as solo artist as well as in collaboration with others.
A limited edition (100) physical Audio CD with this mix will be included with every physical release order from Banabila’s Bandcamp.
Also, a VIDEO version (presenting the covers in sync with the mix, as well as including the impressive Geert Mulvideo for ‘Crowds‘), can be downloaded for free (link below).
“Mental Health Hotline” is the second ‘collaborative dialogue’ created together with Christophe ‘Klankschap’ Ywaska.
(The first was “Both Were Moving“, 2012).
Each selection a reaction to the previous addition means the story may have some unexpected turns and views… especially with over 50 samples crammed into this adventurous hour of sound!
Be prepared for a dazzling – and possibly somewhat disorienting – joyride…
