I made this semi continuous new Aarnio mix last night of songs that I love to loop and fall asleep to and shared it with a friend. Its a pretty rewarding listen if you enjoy collections of songs in a row that concentrate on depth in tone and calm airy patterns.
Made for people who love the admire the beauty of the ocean at night, listening to trains from a distance and the echos from a large church bell.

Nueva Forma has graciously allowed me to post these Listening Pleasures here for you guys. They have captivated me for the last month when stumbling upon them. Prior to this post I’ve also posted mixes 1-8 on Wanken with the track listing for each.
Each month Nueva Forma creates one of these mixes featuring artists from their own label and also guest artists whom they feel fit. The mixes are presented as podcasts and can be downloaded from the website. Each is around an hour or so in length. So sit back and enjoy the wonderful listening pleasures brought to us courtesy of Nueva Forma.
A future classic in my mind, this mix by Tensnake for Resident Advisor keeps a pace that feels right for any occasion. If you haven’t followed the highly informative and giving RA site then I suggest you should, decent reviewers but more importantly a great site for these mixes. That Floating Points track still gets me, damn, so good.

The Sight Below recently compiled an amazing tracklist for a Fact Magazine Mix, check the song list below, its packed with lush distorted dream pop from the 80’s and 90’s. I saw The Sight Below play 2 nights ago, it felt like I was falling back slowly for about 45 mins, it was perfect, I kept asking myself why do I listen to anything else. I’m putting this mix on repeat while I pack up and move today, enjoy your weekend.

As you can see guys and gals i’m a photoshop ninja, give me a project and i’ll make it happen, you want a dorky kid to look like a jackalope? no problem, you want ferns cut out in 2 minutes using an eraser at 48px? no problem, rocking CS3 over here and using it to about 1/1000th of its potential, don’t blame Scott or Alex for the bad design work here please hah.
So, yes thats me above, I did this mix of some songs for The Mixtape Club that were all at 94 Beats Per Minute, a short mix that is only clocking in at about 34 minutes. I named it The Black Bear Caught The Crystal Deer Surfing With A Pitchfork because all the hip bands have some key words in their names. You see if your band was Flamingo Fantasy you probably won’t get much love, maybe in 2014 when flamingos get really cool but for now you better have a surfing bear or make noise and use the word hair in your band name, that way you can take cuts and get on some reviewers priority piles. Well enough with my banter, here are some great songs that I have posted already probably in the past month or so that I like as a collective, as always thanks for reading and listening to the material on the blog.
NOTE: There’s an exclusive track on here, the last song by Shigeto who recently remixed Tycho, it will be out on 4.20.2010 on Ghostly International.
