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.
