A week travelling with work results in lots of time listening to music and not as much time exploring new sounds. However, over the past 24 hours i’ve managed to do some much needed catching-up.
Max Cooper’s on a roll recently, with some stunning remixes and now a remake of an absolute classic chill-out track, FC Kahuna’s Hayling. Like all good remixes, the original is left intact with just a few little tweaks to stamp a definitive modern-mark.
You should all be synonymous with Silent Season by now, one of the great ambient labels of recent times and a fav of mine. If you take their last two releases, you’ll see why: a stunning ambient dub-techno release by Martin Nonstatic and ASC’s first ever all-ambient release. ASC has long been putting together quality ambient mixes (Deep Space series) and a recent colab’ with bvdub led us to think there may be more beatless up his sleeve. Well, ‘The Light That Burns Twice As Bright’ is more than that and comes from a man who knows exactly what he is doing. Stunning.
Now on to the mixes. You’ve probably spent enough money by the time you’ve read down to here, so to alleviate the pain, we’ve got a new psy-chill mix from Ultimae’s Eckoe, a live set from Casino Versus Japan (get it here by signing up for the Attacknine email) and a brilliant electronic mix from Martim, put together for Origami Sound. Enjoy!
