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.
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 Sadly the record label is no longer active, having released material in the 90’s before closing down, and then again in the early 00’s before meeting the same fate and shutting down again in 2006.
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.
A mix inspired by Ambienteer’s experiments using an old 70′s transistor radio to listen to shortwave transmissions. He recorded samples from the radio, and distorted and looped them to use as elements in a number of his tracks. This mix uses tracks which remind me of these old tones, signals, and distortion.
