Brian Eno – 1/1
This is the first piece of ambient that I ever listened to. I was still a kid when I started listening to it. Currently, I listen to Loscil, Deru, Biosphere and many more ambient producers…
Bruno Pronsato Ft. Caro – Nobody Calls
A friend of mine Introduced me to Bruno Pronsato’s music around 2012 still a great piece of music that spearheads my “minimal” phase.
James Blake – Retrograde
I could have posted “Limit To Your Love” but I find that “Retrograde” aligns more with who I am. I was living in Berlin when this came out and going through some interesting times..
Yaeji – Drink I’m Sippin’ On
I discovered Yaeji by chance through some visual artists I follow on Instagram. I think what she is making is very refreshing and unique, one of my favorite artists from the mainstream/undeground crossover scene.
Kirsty Hawkshaw – Fine Day (James Holden Remix)
This has to be my favorite James Holden record. I still like what he is doing nowadays with his modular shows and live band music but I’m sure we will understand it fully in some years 😉 but I miss these days around 2008 when everything was just great.
Nils Frahm – Says (Live on KEXP)
I love the way Nils Frahm interprets his song ‘Says’ here with the Fender Rhodes and Juno 106. Just stunning.
Angelo Badalamenti explains how he wrote “Laura Palmer’s Theme”
Not necessarily a musical piece (althought it has been used by Nicolas Jaar to open one of his podcasts) but I think this video on how the Twin Peaks theme was created is stunning and inspiring.
The Prodigy – Firestarter
I think I must have been around 15 or 14 when I was listening to The Prodigy, such an anthem at the time.
Pryda – Choo
I love seeing very talented producers like Eric Prydz or Deadmau5 coming back to more underground hypnotic sounds and this is a perfect example of that. I hear people despising EDM constantly (and i can see why) but most of those producers actually come from an underground scene and are quite talented artists.
Erik Satie – Gnossienne No.1
Last track has to be this Erik Satie masterpiece, I did 4 years of classical notation and piano years ago, this piece reminds me of it. I have sadly forgotten most of it now and resort to guessing notes with a mouse on a computer or controller, but such is life.
