Music Recommendations – magical ambient scapes and laid back beats

It’s been a bit quiet on the web front as I’ve been rearranging my music studio. I’ll be back in to the swing of things again soon. There is an upcoming AgentCast mix for December, so stay tuned. It’s been a while since I wrote a Netlabel review, I promise more are on the way. I’ve decided to highlight 4 releases that need your attention and should certainly be in your music collection.

Netlabel releases that are essential for your music collection
