Yes, another gorgeous mix by Ryan Griffin of A Strangely Isolated Place, and yes, this one was already released by ASIP in December of 2018, but oh, it is so lovely, and its frequencies keep spreading through the lake of consciousness like a memory’s reflection, and so, why not, we asked, and then why not, we whispered, the echoes of the past a ...…
 
On the heels of our modular-synthesizer-heavy release and remix album by James Bernard, we dug into some other artists playing within the rabbit holes of analog frequencies. There are of course many to choose from, but one artist has recently caught our ear as a purveyor in both techno and ambient sounds within the modular realm. An On Bast is ...…
 
It’s been a long brutal winter at label headquarters in Wisconsin, and it’s left a wanting for warmer days and the entry of a new season. The music of this mix has a definite watery and cyclical vibe to it. Trapped between the seemingly endless gray of winter, and the desire for warm coastal climates and surroundings with even the slightest hin ...…
 
I’ve been a long time fan of Dmitry Taldykin‘s Moscow-based Dronarivm label which, thanks to the additional curation from Bartosz Dziadosz (aka Pleq) has always brought us treasures from the depths of ambient and modern classical waters. Many of imprint’s releases have been covered on these pages (just look at our dedicated Dronarivm label dire ...…
 
I feel a little disappointed in myself that I hadn’t stumbled across Seahawks when I was back in England. It turns out the duo, consisting of Jon Tye (Lo Recordings) and Pete Fowler (known for his work with Super Furry Animals and his monsterism toys) have been frequenting some of my old haunts back home for quite some time. The Big Chill festi ...…
 
Nine years ago (damn!), Dag Rosenqvist made a mix for Headphone Commute under his Jasper TX moniker (listen to From Midnight To Sunlight). Since then he has produced numerous albums under his real name, many of which, like Vowels (2015), elephant (2016), and Hello Darkness (2017) were featured on these pages. I’ve been way overdue on checking i ...…
 
Releasing music since the early 1990’s, electronic music producers rarely come as seasoned as Scanner. Robin Rimbaud’s productions can be found on seminal labels such as Sub Rosa (home to early records and label-mates such as Coil, Gigi Masin, Bill Laswell, John Cage, Stars of The Lid) Glacial Movements and Lawrence English’s, Room40 amongst ma ...…
 
Back to the regularly scheduled programming (but with a new site in tow) I’m excited to present you with a fresh new mix from Gavin Miller (he is also one half of worriedaboutsatan and Ghosting Season for which he collaborates on with Tom Ragsdale). For his Headphone Commute Mix, Miller curates a selection of the latest and favorites from Lost ...…
 
If like me, you often spend time exploring Bandcamp and the genre charts on the homepage, you’ll likely stumble across one of r beny’s albums. That’s not to say he’s a chart topping superstar (he could be our very own ambient equivalent) but more so that he is the type of artist that once stumbled upon, I’d guess people end up buying his entire ...…
 
And here we are. Finding ourselves at this place at this time, where we have been before, and yet, it is always new. Even this mix, although now a tradition, to be published during our Best of the Year lists, celebrating 50 tracks from 50 releases of the last year, seems very familiar, but truly unique. So without further adieu, we present, for ...…
 
For the seventh year in a row, we partner up with Mike Jedlicka of Optic Echo Presents, to bring you the best of vinyl releases of the year, in one continuous (vinyl-only of course) mix. This one is nearly two hours long, so there is plenty for you to dig through, and then get ready for our Best of the Year lists which we’ll begin unveiling tom ...…
 
Black Swan’s music goes back to the early days of discovery here on ASIP. It was our good friend 36 who put us on to the cinematic drones of Black Swan’s 2012 album Aeterna, and by way of an introduction, the musical similarities between the two aren’t dissimilar, especially when concerning some of 36’s earlier works. The pair even teamed up in ...…
 
For the third year in a row, we are proud to host a mix by Mathias Van Eecloo showcasing his beautiful Eilean imprint, and the tiny gems he’s brought into this world. This is a perfect way for you to catch up to the music you have missed from this fantastic label, featuring many great pieces by some of our favourites, such as Ian Hawgood, Benja ...…
 
This year marked some significant milestones in my life personally and with ASIP. It was our ten-year anniversary and with it came our Full Circle vinyl project. I didn’t think I would get around to doing this year-end mix given everything going on, but it’s always funny how and when inspiration strikes to pull something together. Sleepless, st ...…
 
Bernocchi is an Italian composer and sound designer with releases going back to 1997. His collaboration in 2017 with Netherworld for Glacial Movements captured our attention, and we’ve invited the artist to curate a label special mix (see Eraldo Bernocchi – Glacial Movements). For Map Of Memories, Bernocchi shares not only his favourites (and m ...…
 
In 2012 we asked Pascal Terstappen aka Applescal to contribute an isolatedmix, creating a sublime and original addition the series that remains one of the most popular isolatedmixes to this day. Pascal continued to hone his sound and curation efforts over the years, and began Atomnation. The Amsterdam-based label is at the forefront of a unique ...…
 
Infinite moments of deep listening punctuated with fragile shards of icy silence. Weightless and adrift inside a colossal white cube of thunderous electrostatic noise, awash with the flotsam and jetsam of intricate and sublime melodies borne on powerful superluminous currents pulsing with sonic energy. Transformation of sounds and shapes accomp ...…
 
It was 2013 when Franck Zaragoza’s beautiful electronic debut for n5MD grabbed our attention and secured itself as one of the years finest releases. Since then, Franck and his Ocoeur project, has continued on the label with three more albums - his latest, ‘Inner’ landing just last month on gold vinyl. Looking back at Ocoeur’s evolution on n5MD ...…
 
It’s that time of the year, kids, when we invite our favourite Halloween ghost and ghoul to wreck some mayhem on our ears. Headphone Commute is more than just all ambient and piano for the road – sometimes we need that extra oomph on slow and sludgy mornings. Orangewarrior has been with us for many years, and today he’s back (right on time!) wi ...…
 
The impossible task. Find a way to summarize the last ten years of music featured on the A Strangely Isolated Place blog and website. First off, we have created the ‘tagged’ project, listing some of the hundreds of artists featured on the blog for you to explore over here. And pretty soon, we’ll have a special release for you all. But I also wa ...…
 
We’ve got something very, very special for you today, folks! A collaboration of forces between three separate entities, Headphone Commute, Ambientblog, and Slowcraft Records, are proud to present a unique mix by a colleague and partner in crime, Peter van Cooten, of beautiful works from a beautiful couple, James Murray and Anne Garner, culminat ...…
 
Everyone has that handful of tracks that they just keep going back to, over and over again, no matter what. As teenagers growing up in Brussels in the late 90s/early 2000s, we lost our innocence to IDM/electronica institutions like n5MD, Toytronic, City Centre Offices, Schematic, Karaoke Kalk, Mego and Merck (just to name a few) – and never rea ...…
 
One of the catalysts to the composition on my new album Époques was a 2 weeks retreat in Suffolk last year, the change of environment and soundscape, away from inner city manmade noises. Many of the pieces featured in this mix were inspired by nature in an abstract or descriptive way. It is easy to sense the heatherlands, rivers and other natur ...…
 
I know, I know – it’s a bit risky to use a teenage love song as the title track of an otherwise fairly dark ambient mix. Some listeners probably won’t get past it – and if they quit at that point, they’ll miss the 40 minutes of associative transitions following it. [...] With the occasional exception, most of the music in this mix is heavily mu ...…
 
This is a very eclectic selection of tracks, a bit gloomy and noir-fi, exactly how I like it, for the perfect mental image of the state you feel inside. I spent a whole day listening to this sonic weave of textures before writing down these words, imagining all of the descriptive adjectives I’d use to lure you into its conditions, finally reali ...…
 
One year after recording a Soundtrack For A City View in Antwerp, I gathered with my friends from Montage in one of the highest buildings of Brussels for a follow-up. This recording was made on March 1st in the WTC building in Brussels during sunset and streamed live on Facebook. Additional video footage was made on the day before and assembled ...…
 
We’re back with the second part of this wonderful piano based journey from Cedric. Be sure to check out Part One, and thank you all for your wonderful comments – I know I speak on behalf of Cedric, but he definitely appreciates all of the feedback (and frankly, so do I – otherwise it often feels like I’m broadcasting into a wall). More gorgeous ...…
 
For today’s instalment, we welcome back Cedric, who has contributed two long Pianorama mixes back in 2013 and 2014, and just as last time, he’s sharing some of his favorite piano pieces with us, on this two-part podcast. There are plenty of amazing tracks on here, many of which, I know, you already love. So sit back, and come on a beautiful str ...…
 
First a man behind the words of A Strangely Isolated Place blog (I prefer to call it a magazine), then a curator of an influential record label, and now a master selector of musical journeys, Ryan Griffin has been a partner in crime on my sonic evangelism for over a decade now. So without a doubt, I’m more than honoured to host a beautiful ASIP ...…
 
Thank you for patiently awaiting the second part of this mix. Roel and I have left you two weeks ago with over two hours of gorgeous music to digest, and we hope that you had a good time of it, because here comes your reward! Make sure to read more about this mix in Part 1 of this series! Otherwise, you know how this goes... Thank you for liste ...…
 
Honored to have Roel Funcken back on the show, especially because he has this uncanny ability to mesmerize my senses with his incredible mixing skills. Ambient music may be easier to “blend” than all the rhythmic parts, but when you find this task at the hands of a master, you can really tell the difference of a talent navigating the way. For a ...…
 
Dennis Huddleston has been captivating his audience with the sounds of space and time exploration, where the music transcends all auditory boundaries and simply carries you away. While music, in general, may possess such time-traveling properties, the sounds of 36 aid in a special [and spacial] propulsion through the atmospheres of other planet ...…
 
So I’m back in New York for a couple of weeks. Everything is nearly the same, and yet all of it’s different. I now notice more of the things that I’ve left behind, not recognizing their heavy significance, the darkness or the emptiness that they carried so loud, during my presence. Even this mix, feels a bit out of place in this space, and it s ...…
 
A few months in the making, this mix is a collaboration between Peter van Cooten (PvC) of Ambient Blog and yours truly (HC), ending up in a mesmerizing trip which we could only call Bipolar. For this fascinating exchange, Peter and I passed the files back and forth, without sharing the track listing, allowing each one to only spend five minutes ...…
 
I’ve been praising Mike Jedlicka‘s end of year selection for nearly six years now, when, with a slight hand of a magician and a skilled curator, he presents his favorite vinyl-only mix. The tracklisting alone shows Jedlicka’s vast knowledge in today’s moving genres, and greatly summarize some of my own thoughts on the music in 2017. It’s a somb ...…
 
Matt Emery is a London based composer, a talented pianist, and now a friend, whom I am honored to host today on this Headphone Commute episode, with his exclusively curated mix, titled Eternal Bliss. With his selections, Matt traverses a landscape of modern classical and ambient compositions, many of which are already dear to my heart, like a p ...…
 
This mix is called 'child of nature'. It is a proof that music and nature fit together very well, especially for those who feel connected with nature. However, in every one of us, you find a little 'child' of nature. Probably you will realize this by listening. Until now I’ve recorded nature sounds with my pocket recorder. This time everything ...…
 
For this Headphone Commute mix I decided to focus mostly on the ambient for the first time. It’s filled with mainly new discoveries and a few old tracks that have never quite left my ears. The theme is peace. I have recently been fascinated by books and documentaries about a woman named Mildred Lisette Norman, from her 40’s she became a spiritu ...…
 
I'm a HUGE fan of 70s and 80's horror movies and my initial intention with this mix was to mimic the pace and intention that those sorts of movies have, whilst also trying to use tunes and sounds that emulated either the sounds or (failing that) mood. If this mix was a movie soundtrack, I’d want the viewers shouting at the screen whilst the mus ...…
 
Mathias Van Eecloo has been extremely prolific with the curation of his very own Eilean Records. I honestly can’t keep up. This year alone, he has already put out 14 records, each one with a point on the imaginary map of music. At the end of 2016, Headphone Commute featured a mix with a selection from the imprint showcasing the catalog to the b ...…
 
I’ve got a mix, and yes, another mix for you, and really, I spoil you, don’t you think? There’re all these albums to enjoy and then I go ahead and get these artists to select their favorites for you, to pave a journey through their mind with all these sounds and all this music. James Clements, producing under his ASC moniker, has recently jumpe ...…
 
Once in a blue moon, I compile a mix, always ensuring I give the narrative, track selection and each and every transition my full, unhurried attention. In other words, I like to get them just right. They’re usually loosely themed and often coincide with an album release. Also, for the first time and at the suggestion of Headphone Commute, my so ...…
 
Let's Go Outside is an exclusive mix comprising one and a half hours of music from Serein. Hear old favourites and exclusive new pieces on this compilation made in collaboration with Headphone Commmute. Free to download and stream, this album offers a glance back at where we've come from and, with six brand new, previously unheard tracks, a gli ...…
 
Today we find ourselves in the company of Leah Kardos, a London-based composer, whose work we’ve highly praised back in 2012, with her release on Bigo & Twigetti titled Feather Hammer. Today, Leah is celebrating a release of her newest album, Rococochet, which she says is 'my palate cleanser, something to counter a growing feeling in myself and ...…
 
It’s been a taxing year on the psyche, just tuning into social media or any type of news can turn one’s stomach. Seems like an easy time to lose your mind, if not want to retreat from all of it. Trying to find a way to make a positive impact these days and bring people together feels like a daunting task. That’s partly how the Lost Tribe Sound' ...…
 
The weather in London is definitely different than in New York. My dense humid mornings of August have been replaced with the gray breezy skies, misty showers, and bright sunny evenings. It’s not exactly better, but it’s definitely not worse. It’s simply different. And right now it’s like this. I woke up then, and I wake up now, to my morning c ...…
 
I am super excited to welcome the one and only Richard Chartier back to the mix series. Not even as Pinkcourtesyphone, of whom, I am undeniably a huge fan, but as Richard Chartier himself, which is a rare treat indeed. For exactly two hours, Chartier collects his latest favorite pieces to weave in a fabric of textures, featuring many of our bel ...…
 
Very excited about this one, folks, because the music on this exclusive mix contains some fantastic pieces from one of my favorite labels, Glacial Movements. Compiled from the catalog by the label manager, Alessandro Tedeschi (aka Netherworld), and mixed by Eraldo Bernocchi (who also appears on the tracklist), this hour-long journey showcases t ...…
 
We’ve got something very different for you today, folks. Instead of a mix, I asked the London-based Caleb Wood (aka Precocious Mouse), who specializes in glitchy drone, clipped micro-sampled beats, and barely audible dark ambient noises, to compose an hour-long set, just for your ears. The result is a one-of-a-kind performance, released exclusi ...…
 
Radere is the project of Colorado-based Carl Ritger, composing minimal soundscapes, drone, and ambient. His work primarily explores the shadowy gulf that exists between drone and noise, blurring guitars, location recordings, and electronics into densely textured sonic monoliths. Recorded at home using two Technics, a mixer, and a reverb process ...…
