A few years ago I spent time in the Himalayas, traveling all around Nepal, and northern India. During that time I visited several music, and cultural centers where I purchased a lot of instrumental releases.
The distinctive sound of Audio Mainline combines lush cinematic ambiance, bass-driven grooves, warped guitars, and soothing female vocals. A deliciously prescribed sensory capsule, fittingly recorded in Asia’s Kingdom of Wonder.
Typical lazy summer’s afternoon in the Audio Mainline household. Two radio broadcasts from the 1950’s and 23 tracks spanning six decades – mixed in under 40 minutes. Lazy jazz, swooning strings, ambient vibes, dub, electronica and old radio stories.
Exclusively showcasing tracks from one of my all-time favourite record labels, Em:t Records (aka Emit records). Sadly the record label is no longer active, having released material in the 90’s before closing down, and then again in the early 00’s before meeting the same fate and shutting down again in 2006.
ViewMaster is not just an album or a book, it is a performance — a personal slide-show for your eyes and ears only. When performed Ryan Van Winkle and sound artist Dan Gorman guide you through a playful, surreal, journey to a distant land. It is an immersive piece aided by the set-design of Faith Eliott and, of course, our trusty vintage View-master.
Ebauche blends 44 tracks over a 4 and a half hour mix. Featuring our very own T-Woc, Rhythm & Sound, The Orb, Fennesz, Biosphere, and many more quality acts. Another quality downtempo podcast from Alex Leonard.
AgentCast 51 was mixed by Chris Bradbury on a set of Technics 1210′s at Confusion, Glasgow in 2003. With such a stunning tracklist it was an easy decision to pull this from the archives. Thanks to Chris and the crew of Confusion.
To celebrate episode 50 of the Invisible Agent podcast, Sunken Foal (Planet Mu Records) graciously agreed to mix something special for us. Dunk Murphy is an accomplished Irish producer and musician and has also released as Ambulance and Natural History Museum.
The WASH collaboration is a blending of spoken poetry and music in a way you’ve never heard before. A voice walks through a series of evocative and ever-evolving soundscapes, a mixture of the organic with the electronic: loops and beats, found sounds, liquid guitar lines, synths and drones.
