Pels mix – instrumentals

mix_instrumentals_cover_400

(2013)

Instead of releasing a new album this year, I made a 66 minute mix of instrumental music I like.

I selected music that is without voice and that is not beat-oriented, while avoiding truly ambient stuff. There are 33 tracks involved and artists include Squarepusher, Tortoise, Angelo Badalamenti, Mouse on Mars, Cornelius, LFO, Amon Tobin, Nino Rota, Sufjan Stevens, dEUS, Kettel and many more.
The tracks are not simply played one after another but are sometimes mixed together as well. Making a mix out of beat music is relatively straightforward as you can synchronize the track’s tempos; I found that mixing beatless music is more interesting as the process tends to focus more on glueing moods and atmospheres together.

You can download the mix from the link below (or listen to it in your browser):
