Nu Age Psychedelik - New Ambient 2016 vol. 11 mixed by Mike G

September 15, 2016
00:0000:00
The best new age music is - and always was - a reverberation of psychedelic ambient music, rooted in sources including late 60's Pink Floyd, minimalist composers like Terry Riley, and ancient third-world folk musics. This mix collects new gems from artists working both within and in between these genres. Many are making music in the spirit of the earliest American new age music, before commercialism and relaxation muzak took it far from its roots.

Features music by Ishq, Deep Forest, 8 Bit Weapon, Boris Lelong, Matthew Barlow, Hybrid Palms, Lunaria, Anaamaly, J Mundok, Inner Travels and Joanna Brouk.

Compiled & mixed by Mike G @ Rubycon Sound, September 2016.

Post-rock - it's sort of kind of a rock-classical-jazz-electronica-ambient-contemporary-indie kind of thing. Honestly, isn't post-rock the most useless genre tag ever?


Enjoy this mix of atmospheric instrumentals from new albums and ep's by Marconi Union, Helios, Liquid Sound Design (Irresistible Force), Slow Dancing Society, Ben Lukas Boysen, Rezo Glonti (Dronarivm), Blue Blue Youth and Olivia Summer.

Guest mix: Rainshine by low light mixes

July 15, 2016

Rainshine is another exclusive guest mix for Ambient Music Guide by low light mixes.

low light mixes is Dave Michuda of Wisconsin, USA. Dave has fascinating taste in downtempo and ambient sounds - including loads of artists I've never heard before - and has an uncanny knack for creating highly evocative mix titles.

As with last time (June 2015), we gave each other a themed title as a challenge to create a mix around. I gave him the mix title Rainshine.

He writes:

This mix is pretty self-explanatory based on the track titles. The first half is all rain songs and the second half transitions to sunlight. I added some rain field recordings to a few of the songs but most of them already had rain sound fx in the original track.

Get the tracklist in PDF format here.

My reciprocal contribution for low light mixes is called The Color Of Space - listen to it here.
