Om Unit – Seraphim

It has been an absolute age since I’ve posted a free track, but Seraphim from Om Unit is worthy of the exception. Deep, beautifully crafted and high quality (in sound and file format) this track is simply a thing of wonder well worth sharing with the world.

Enjoy.

The Down Low: Session 034

Chilled out bass, techno and house are the order of the day with this downtempo mix.

A few personal highlights – Rainforest’s sublime Between Us, Lane 8’s The Great Divide with Are Scott on sultry vocals and the throw your hands in the air fun of Purple Disco Machine’s Where We Belong. But if I had to be honest, every tune is in here on their own merits and they are all great. 🙂

Download, lie down and unwind. Rewind.

Call the Ambience 10 – Tranquilizer – Ear & Drum Session 124

I never though I’d get to a 10th instalment of this infrequent Ambient D&B series. But I am please to report the genre is going from strength to strength and it seems more producers are turning their hand to chilled out 170bpm+ music today than ever before.

Perfect for travelling or just chilling on the couch, these beats are designed to take you on a journey. So strap yourself in and enjoy some down time.

Shouts out to Dan Moore who was the inspiration for the original Call the Ambience mix I put together four years ago. You are a constant inspiration and top sort. 😉

The Down Low: Session 033

It’s time to get your float on once again with the first Down Low of 2017.

Kicking things off with Danny Scrilla (The Lady Killah) & Epoch’s – Geometry we have all sorts in here from jungle, house, techno, breaks and more. If I had to say there was a theme it would have to be the dubbed out nature of most of the music.

Kick back, relax and enjoy some fresh tunes.

Snow Peaks – Ear & Drum Session 122

It’s been a great year for chilled out liquid D&B which, in my humble opinion, has over taken it’s more upbeat form. Leading the charge are the likes of Lenzman, Alix Perez and Calibre, but the big surprise this year has been the emergence and dominance of Dawn Wall. Their silky smooth take on liquid is something special and as the triple play at the start of this mix will tell you their tunes go together like an absolute dream.

I’m not sure if I’ll get another mix in before the end of the year. So if I don’t, enjoy this one and have a great silly season. Peace.

The Down Low Sessions: 031

90 isn’t a beats per minute range I play in very often.

In fact it took me three years to find enough 90bpm tracks I liked to put into a single set. The bad news is it might be three years before I do something like this again. The good news, every tune in here is an absolute winner.

We’ve got downbeat, techno, hip-hop and electronica all on a chilled out tip and lightly blended. Perfect for a Sunday morning or as wash up music, as Armistead Maupin would have called it.

Relax, you’re in good hands.

Drift towards centre with this collection of beautiful tunes and intricate beats.

This is the perfect mix to relax to while you enjoy the holiday break and finish out the year. Cheers to all those who have listened though out 2015 and here’s to more music in the year to come.

Call the Ambience 8: Anesthesia – Ear & Drum Session 112

Welcome to the eighth edition in the Call the Ambience series. Like those that came before, this is a more relaxed and ambient take on the D&B sound. Not quite float tank material, but if you think D&B is all bang and clang this will get you guessing again about your preconceptions.

In terms of artists featured, I recognise only a handful of the producers in here which is always exciting. New talent means a healthy music scene and hopefully there is a bunch of fresh talent for you to discover.

The flow of the mix is quite anesthetic as we start of with some solid, but laid back, D&B beats that give way to chilled out trip-hop type stuff combined with pure ambient soundscapes. And finally we slowly come back to consciousnesses by shifting into some deep minimal D&B towards the end.

This is perfect Sunday listening, so kick back, turn it up and drift off.

Signs of Intelligence – Ear & Drum Session 108

Ah the 90s – electronic music’s golden era and definitely D&B’s original hey-day. Around ’96 D&B was everywhere and everyone wanted a piece, from movie soundtracks to TV advertising to mainstream music labels, they all wanted what D&B had. And what D&B had was some of the planet’s hottest production talent exploring electronic musics most diverse musical genre.

Photek was in his prime, dropping must have tune after must have tune. LTJ Bukem and his label, Good Looking, were killing it with an incredible artist roster including legends such as Blame and PFM. And Jonny L was on the verge of greatness and flexing some seriously beautiful music.

It was a gentler time, when D&B didn’t feel like it had to be dark or underground and it was an era I still love coming back to so I can lay down sets like this.

The Down Low: Sessions 25, 26 & 27

What’s that you say? It’s the weekend and you haven’t got anything to listen too.

Well here you go – three new Down Low Session chock full of new tunes and diverse styles to keep you going for at leat the next three hours.

Session 25 is a cracking chill-out house set for of good vibes and lush lyrics. I defy anyone not to sing along to Blood Groove & Kikis – Free Like A Bird. This set is just like that holiday in Ibiza where you can’t remember how you lost your knickers on the dance floor.

Session 26 rolls up all ghetto with dubstep, hip-hop and trap kicking out the jams. You definitely want to keep an ear out for Atlantic Connection – Go feat. Tunde Olaniran which is my track of the year so far. Impossibly impressive beats, bass and vocals.

Session 27 is one for the Techno and Tech House lovers and has a heavy deep and dark and Chicago influence to it. Highlights for me is the oh-so-tech inspired Neighbours by Madben & Yann, Sixteenth Pulse – Frames and Rainforest’s chill out classic Weather Swing.
