A two-hour mix for the longest night: Winter Solstice. To be played (and hopefully enjoyed) in the deepest darkness. “Dream All The Dark Away” … — originally published on Ambientblog —

December 21 is the longest night in the Northern hemisphere. It marks the start of Winter (even though it is also called “Midwinter”), but gradually the nights will slowly get shorter as to indicate spring will be coming, eventually.
For the 2019 Winter Solstice, Dutch Radio station Concertzender Nederland programmed an 8-hour ambient music special from 23:00 until 07:00 (11pm to 7am). That’s a good night’s sleep for most people!
My contribution was scheduled to close the night: from 05:00 to 07:00 (5am to 7am).

For the context of this ambient night, I created a mix that is somewhat different from most Ambientblog.net mixes – after all, this was intended to be broadcast in the deepest hours of the darkest night of the year. So this one is more drone-oriented for the most part, slower, less ‘dynamic’ and less ‘intense’.
