Breakbot

Good morning.

Since it’s Friday we’re listening to something more upbeat. Today we’re playing DJ sets from Breakbot, a French producer/DJ most known for his single “Baby I’m Yours”. Specifically we’re listening to two recent sets, in which he plays disco classics and edits.

Elm Records

Good morning.

Today we’re listening to “Sleepy Sunday Podcasts” from Elm Records, a small independent label from the UK. The label publishes ambient and experimental music, and these podcasts gather contemporary ambient pieces from around the world. These mixes are all completely vocal-free. There are about ten of them on their SoundCloud, but these three were our favorite:

Terekke

Good morning.

Today we’re listening to Terekke, an electronic composer and DJ. His album from last year, Improvisational Loops, is a collection of tranquil synth recordings first made in a yoga class. It’s an atypical release from Terekke, who is better known for his deep house and techno sets. We included one such set in this edition in case you need energy. Lastly, 2017’s Plant Age is a hybrid of ambient and house: meditative chords accompanied by downtempo drum machines.

Hiroshi Yoshimura

Good morning.

Today we’re listening to Hiroshi Yoshimura, a Japanese ambient composer who was influenced by Erik Satie and Brian Eno. On Music for Nine Postcards, Yoshimura’s nine tracks correspond to nine views from windows he experienced at a Tokyo art museum. On the bouncy Quiet Forest, Yoshimura plays traditional flute melodies over drum machines. And on Air In Resort, Yoshimura goes hyperminimal, using ample silence to create a more immersive sonic environment.
