isolatedmix 13 – Solar Fields

When the isolatedmix series first started, my intentions were to include artists who have inspired me from day one, or have recently made a big impact with an amazing record. Magnus, is one of the very few who tick both boxes. His work as Solar Fields leaves me as high as a kite every time. Since his very first album on Ultimae in 2001, to his latest release, #Origin 01, Magnus defines my soundtrack to escapism and his isolatedmix is nothing short of the epitome of beautiful music.

Titled ’21 Days Of Winter’, Magnus has featured some of my favourite artists to date, with N5MD‘s finest; port-royal, Winterlight, Proem and Bitcrush featuring amongst the classic Manual, M83 and Telefon Tel Aviv, resulting in an absolutely stunning isolatedmix. This is one hell of a start to 2011…

02. Proem- Hope is great but we need Caffeine
03. Hecq – I Am You

  5. I hate to sound too cliched but there are some truly transcendental moments in this mix. Would class it as one of the best chill/ambient mixes I’ve heard

  6. The Savvas Ysatis / Taylor Deupree track is exactly that sort of almost wistful stuff I very much like, so bought the EP flac. Really lovely release – just a shame it’s not longer.

  9. Just amazing stuff! Thank you! One question, is there anyway we can know the time points where each track start and ends?

  10. Hey, not without me doing it! is there any tracks/times in particular?

  11. This is such a mental landscape – peaceful and yet fluid in motion. I really need this as I move through a rather abstract problem in my work, helps me to meander multidimensionally.
