This has been extremely fun to make.
Last year I was lucky to get asked to be the Support DJ at Fields' night promoting Max Cooper, Ghosting Season and The Slow Revolt at the epitome of the Shoreditch cellar club: Dance Tunnel. The Club was rammed and after a brilliant set by The Slow Revolt, with half an hour before the excellent Ghosting Season I didn't know what to play. I knew what I wanted to start with - Jon Hopkins' Open Eye Signal, but after that I was going to wing it... Tracklisting
Another set recorded from Second Life. I was itching to play some ambient tunes and I talked my friend Altern8 into letting me to dj at his excellently designed chillout room at the Second Life Club space "Home" and here's the result. It starts off with an amazing piece by Tom Heasley, called "Prologue"; Tom makes these amazing pieces just using a Tuba (worth remembering when you're out searching for antique analogue synths for that illusive pad sounds). There's also 3 tracks from Gel-Sol - whom I'm quite happy to describe as a music genius - 2 off his new Ambient LP "IZ" ("Mourning Wok" and the title track) and his last more beat oriented LP "Unifactor" (both available from Upstairs Recordings) and a track by another music genius, Jon Hopkins off his surperb "Opalescent" LP, on Just Music; oh and, of course, an Echaskech tune "A Slow Day" (you can watch the video to that by cliicking here).
