Passing by: December and January catch-up

I’m back from an amazing five weeks travelling around Vietnam and Laos, during which I made the decision to leave ASIP well alone and take a break from posting. I missed it like hell, and I missed an awful lot of good music these past few months, so here’s a recap of some of the best mixes which i’ve managed to catch up on thanks to sneaky Soundcloud favouriting and a shot-out to you guys on the Facebook Page. If you think I missed anything worthwhile, then please post it below in the comments.

I’m still playing catch-up on individual releases (so many) and will get some posts up on these soon. (post photo is taken from my trip to Vietnam – a rather strangely isolated rock amongst the 2000 odd of Halong Bay).

Loscil – Polarlichter Guestmix
Following on from my Places Series guestmix, the legendary Loscil takes the stage on Polarlichter featuring bvdub, Stars Of The Lid and Rafael Anton Irisarri.

Aiora – Art Is Hard Podcast

Ambientblog – Broken Lines
A mix themed on Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: Space Odyssey”. Computer systems revolting, loss of memory, human utterings that seem to come from lost souls….”

  3. Welcome back Ryan !
    Fingers In The Noise – man this guy does some great music. Very much recommend checking out his beautiful 3 X 11 (11/11/11)album.

    Also that Funky Jeff / Biosphere Tribute is gold. Sent me on a Biosphere buying spree. So good (and like a doofus I now realise that Le Grand Dôme is his !)
