So I've been a bit slack with the mixtapes recently but that is about to change, kicking off with the first in a series of Slow mixes. This one I've done especially for the Group Mind label/collective/discussion forum ambient fiends.
As the title suggest this one largely focusses on musicians that are also electronic producers or musicians that make their instruments sound like machines. I also threw in a couple of straight up tracks with an ambient vibe that fitted the flow nicely.
So take a wander through a world where cultures unite, musical instruments and machines mingle, genres are blurred, the nature of ambient is questioned, spirituality & agnosticism meet in the middle, love is everywhere and music is King.
You can also find the mix on our podcast and Soundcloud pages.
