Rank #9: Slowbeats Deluxe - New Ambient 2018 vol. 1 mixed by Mike G

Podcast cover
Read more

Outstanding new downtempo instrumentals from Nightmares On Wax, Nils Frahm, Mystical Sun, Thomas Lemmer & Christoph Sebastian Pabst, Catpilot, Kalpataru Tree, Essence Project, Evadez, Eric Shans and FOTN.

The spark for this one came when I heard Moscow-based electronica artist Catpilot and his pearler of a debut album "Homecoming". Inspired by a period when he lived in London, it's a tuneful, ecstatic, near-perfect pastiche of different UK ambient dance and electronica styles from the last 25 years, honed with razor sharp production ears and some fine musicianship. It's released by Lemongrass Music.

Rank #10: Guest mix: Calm Pill 19+20 - Ascension mixed by Uplifting Pills

Podcast cover
Read more

This guest mix for Ambient Music Guide comes from Uplifting Pills (Alaeddin Hallak) who runs the Uplifting Pills website, app and Podcast.

The new mix is his latest in the Calm Pills mix series. He writes:

"It’s titled Ascension, and it’s inspired by The Endless, a 2018 supernatural indie film that made an impression on me. The mix uses several tracks from the score and sprinkles key passages from the dialog throughout. My intention was to recreate the surreal feeling I had watching the film through a music. Fun fact: the mix runs for the exact same duration as the film."

The Calm Pills series is" beatless ambient and atmospheric journeys designed for complete relaxation of mind and body. Perfect for any occasion when you need soothing unobtrusive music."

But it's also good music and I'm excited to share it with you.
