Heading into the Atmospheric levels with this mix, and if you’re talking Atmospheric D&B you’re talking Omni Music. We’ve got tunes from NonRev’s – Secret Society EP, Mineral’s – Distant Life EP, Greekboy’s – Interaction EP, Bluefoot Jai’s – A New Chapter EP, Flipper’s excellent Ode and Spacetime EPs, K3bee’s – Blunted EP, Fortune and Coordinate’s – Semberance EP and last but not least Perhelia’s – Polar Coordinates EP all on Omni Music.
To say this label is holding it down for new Atmospheric music along with ASC’s Spatial is an absolute understatement. Respect to the one like Eschaton for keeping the atmos vibes alive.

My Third mix on the “Ear And Drum” and it’s the second part of the all Big Bud mix,once again thanks to Woz for hosting my mixes. Originally did this mix back in 2006 and it was about two and a half hours long but it was still missing some peoples favourite tracks from him and it was at 192 kbps and the sound quality wasn’t that great so i was reluctant to re-upload it when i was occasionally asked to. I’ve since bought the tracks that were missing from the original mix and done the mix again but it turned out to be nearly four hours long so i decided to split it into two parts. This is part 2. Big Bud was ok with a mix of his tunes back in the day because they were all old tunes and not on his label, i hope he still is. Some of the tunes are more than 25 years old now but still sound fresh, like they were made yesterday.Such relaxing beautiful music, i hope you enjoy it.

Back on the 160bpm train for this mix of mainly atmospheric D&B. Focusing on two labels in particular, first up is the massively underrated Westbay Music label run by Atlantic Connection, his recent Don’t Play EP and Unconventional EP are slabs of breakbeat perfection. I really don’t understand why Atlantic Connection isn’t bigger than he already is.
Another label blazing their own trail is ASC’s new(ish) atmospheric jungle imprint Spatial. The quality of Spatial releases is clear to hear on first play, but it isn’t until you start mixing these tunes that you really get a sense of just how immense some of this music really is. If you loved Progression Sessions at The End, these tunes will take you straight back to that special place in time.
My second mix on the Ear And Drum and it’s another one of my favorite artists Big Bud, Like to thank Woz again for hosting my mixes. Originally did this mix back in 2006 and it was about two and a half hours long but it was still missing some peoples favorite tracks from him and it was at 192 kbps and the sound quality wasn’t that great so i was reluctant to re-upload it when i was occasionally asked to. I’ve since bought the tracks that Were missing from the original mix and done the mix again but it turned out to be nearly four hours long so i decided to split it into two parts. This is obviously part 1, with part 2 to follow soon. Big Bud was OK with a mix of his tunes back in the day because they were all old tunes and not on his label, i hope he still is. Some of the tunes are more than 25 years old now but still sound fresh, like they were made yesterday. Such relaxing beautiful music, i hope you enjoy it.

For my debut mix here on the site I’ve put together a mixture of cosmic jungle, heavenly half-time & atmospheric liquid.
There’s new tunes alongside some older favourites in here, with labels including Modern Conveniences, Omni Music, Offworld, Fokuz, Metalheadz and Goldfat represented, amongst others. Most of the action takes place in the 166-172 territory.
Really hope you enjoy the mix – many thanks to Wozowski for inviting me over!
Session number 250, and we’re headed in an Atmospheric direction for this one. My good friends over at Omni Music have once again come up with the good with label boss Eschaton’s Speed of Light and Calm Resolve doing bits, along with long time friend of the show Starski dropping the mesmerising Memphis Lemongrab from his recent In a Funk LP. Shouts to Mineral, Echo 1, Arcologies, Parallel and The Astronics for also representing the Omni camp.
I love a good Amen, but too much of a good thing is never good for a genre and Atmospheric D&B is showing some real depth here, with a much appreciated move away from pure Amen edits and into some deeper more crafted breaks. Shenji provides us with a perfect opener in his track Promises, Dub Phizix keep up his incredible run of releases with Love Changes and Wardown’s Graphite & Glitter from their amazing sci-fi themed concept album on Blu Mar Ten Music, Wardown II LP is also a standout.
1st mix on Ear & Drum! Respect to Wozo for reaching out from the land of tall trees. Hope you enjoy this latest edition to my sonic wayfaring. I used to mix only dnb, but slowly and surely other styles have entered the fray.

My first mix on the “Ear And Drum” and it’s from one of my favourite artists PFM, Iike to thank Woz for inviting me onto his site and for hosting my mixes. There are quiet a few artist from what people call ” The Golden Era Of Drum And Bass” who have left the scene Like Wax Doctor, Shogun/Artemis, Source Direct and Photek but thankfully PFM is still going and producing the same quality of music as he did back in the day. As the title suggests this is life after good looking.
Swedish born Sebastian Ahrenberg AKA Seba has provided some of the juiciest D&B sounds since 96′ when he first debuted on Looking Good Records. Now running his own label, Secret Operations, Seba has crafted a rolling, bass heavy sound that has influenced the scene and made him one of D&B favourite artists.
One label that has taken the Seba sound and twisted it into its own unique form is Offworld Recordings, home of artists such as Nelver, Fishy and Airstrike. I’ve always thought that between Seba the artist and Offworld the label, there would be a killer mix. It turns out I was pretty spot on, this slaps. If I could hear it on a large system with a packed dance floor I’d die a happy man.
Aleyum – Blow Hour (HumaNature Remix) Seba & Digital – Love Story Nelver – Our Time Seba – Nobody Knows Fishy & Freebird – Cause I Miss You Seba & Manos – Evergreen Intake – Closing Seba – Nostalgia Nuvertal – Faith Seba & Paradox – Jupiterize Kyhu – Time-Lapse Seba feat. Jenna G – Sweet Magnolia Shrust – Cocoon Seba & Jnr Valo – Rotate Airstrike & Biak – Karma Seba & Robert Manos – Machine Advisory – End Credits Seba – Piemo for B Airstrike – Radials
This one says-what-it-does-on-the-tin with a mix of heavy atmospheric tracks and a few mellower numbers to ease you in at the beginning. It’s awesome to hear this sound coming back again with a distinct early Inperspective Records vibes, which is never a bad thing.
Kicking things off with the Voyager classic Aurora remixed by the man himself. Latyn’s two versions of Dust & Ages then bring the big Amen rinsers, backed up by the ever-green Alaska, Mikal and Echo 1 also bringing the heat. Omni Music feature heavily towards the end with tracks from Eschaton, Freeboard, Cryogenics and Abstract Drumz & Peeb.
