A nice vintage air to this mix from Jack J for WUT Magazine. Makes me think, we need to start a mix series on ISO50 right? I’ll get on that next month with the first one, how does that sound? Enjoy this until then.
After trading emails back forth we talked about the possibility of collaborating on a project for The Artistree. We came up with the idea of illustrating elements from some of our favorite releases of 2014 and mashing them all together for what would become the imagery for our end of the year pieces.
Posting 2 growers from the synth world, I love intro of the Floating Points track because the white noise hiss hits like ocean waves in your ears while the song build beautifully with Sam Shepherd sprinkles the cut with his keys.
Furthering this dense journey this focused onslaught of mature synth work by Lovelock carries on into the patience of prepping yourself for relaxation and analog craftsmanship.
I was really disappointed to find out I missed Chyrum Lambert’s show in New York, i’ve only been collecting a few his images off the internet for less than a year. He’s textures and color schemes always caught my eye.

A few months ago, I was asked this simple question: “Would you want to shoot their portrait?”
Looking back, this is the moment when all the dominoes started to fall. I’ve always had something to say, but I felt as if the message wasn’t getting through. Shooting portraits has finally given me the platform to vocalize my vision, and since then it’s been pretty insane. I’ve been fortunate enough to collaborate and share experiences with some of the most amazing people. The best part? I’ve made lifelong friends, all because I just took someone’s photograph.

Legend has it that Brian Eno’s concept of ambient music came to him while laid up in a hospital bed after an automobile accident in the ’70s. A friend brought him some records, playing them too low to be properly heard, and Eno couldn’t get out of bed to adjust the volume. While the record spun softly, Eno’s idea for music you could ignore as easily as you could give it your full attention, like a sort of sonic wallpaper, was born. It’s in that spirit of quiet isolation that Ghostly International, in association with Adult Swim, shares Ghostly Swim 2, our way of giving listeners a space to get away from the manic holiday bustle.
For those keeping track at home, Ghostly is wrapping up its 15th anniversary as an Ann Arbor/Brooklyn-based indie. 2014 has seen the company soundtracking video games (Playstation’s Hohokum), collaborating with awesome companies like Warby Parker and VOID watches, and clearing 300 releases of forward-thinking music with records from Tycho, Com Truise, and HTRK. What better way to end this banner year than to revisit one of our favorite partnerships from the past decade and a half?
Released in 2008, Ghostly Swim was praised for its adventurous survey of exploratory dance and pop music. Our curatorial focus has shifted this time around, moving further inward (spiritually) and outward (as far as our roster goes) to reflect the electronic underground in all of its hazy and vibrant experimentalism. Ghostly Swim 2 is a document of textured ambient zone-outs and woozy, granular house and techno that will help you find some downtime away from The Most Wonderful Time of the Year. So sit back, lower the volume, and enjoy our selections.
