Magnetic Magazine Presents: Ambient Meditations Vol 26 - Emancipator
Ambient Meditations Vol 26 - Emancipator If you are a chillout fan, then chances are you have bobbed your head more than a few times to the beautiful beats and vibes of Portland's Emancipator. Despite the unfortunate timing, 2020 has been a big year for Portland's favorite laidback son, with a full-length album Mountains of Memory, a remix album Mountains of Memory Remixes, and a new EP in the pipeline with 9 Theory called A Thousand Clouds. With the classic boom-bap sound, a continually evolving twist, unlikely pairings, and an ambiance that is uniquely his, Emancipator has become a chillout hall of famer. The mix for AM 26 brings in some legends like Brian Eno and Four Tet; a dabble of Neo-Classical and some of that Bap, all fused with Emancipator's secret sauce. Hit play hit repeat, hit play, hit repeat. Emancipator - Ambient Mix 26 Ólafur Arnalds (feat.

Magnetic Magazine Presents: Ambient Meditations Vol 25 - Omid 16B
Ambient Meditations Vol 25 - Omid 16B For episode 25, we catch up with progressive house producer 16B, aka Omid Nourizadeh, for a chat about his new album SunTzu and a brilliant chillout mix. If you remember the golden era of progressive house, back in the late 90s and early 00s, you remember those beautiful interludes and breakdowns that made the genres so memorable. 16B has never left and continues to carry the torch of that fantastic sound as well as more thoughtful ambient pieces under his own name. The mix for AM 25 takes all those "pins and needles" moments from your favorite progressive breakdowns and sculpts them into an ambient megamix that will make you feel like you are floating in outer space. Find a warm spot, preferably with a view of the night sky, and prepare to melt into the furniture.

Magnetic Magazine Presents: Ambient Meditations Vol 22 - The Lost Art of the Mixtape
Remember when you used to make mix tapes for people? Maybe you made mix cds, but the point is you put together a collection of tracks that told a story and often shared how you felt about someone. Well, that's what episode 22 is all about, a sweet dedication to a lost art that hopefully makes a comeback, because playlists just are the same. This one is dedicated to my wife Laura, so find someone you care about and put together a mix for them, think about every track, take your time and I guarantee it will make their day. During these terrible times, it's sometimes good to let music take you out of the daily ticker tape that is our news cycle. So do it! Dig out those tracks you had forgotten about, maybe songs from when you first met, you are the DJ. This mix features cover songs, rare and unreleased stuff and some incredible piano works. It's chillout, neo-classical, cinematic and some classic downtempo. It might even make you tear up a little bit. Enjoy.

Magnetic Magazine Presents: Ambient Meditations Vol 17 - LoFi Lounge Mix
This week we once again do not have a guest mix, so we decided to dive into some lofi goodness with a blend of jazzy hip hop instrumentals and some classic downtempo. We are huge fans of the lofi genre, and it's come to mean so many different things to so many different people; one thing is for sure - it's having a huge moment right now. There is no better music to put on in the background for studying, working, or easing into your glass of something. Crazy times require less crazy music, so we hope this one relieves the stress a bit.

Mammal Hands will be dropping their fourth album Captured Spirits on September 11th and have put together a vibrant and deep mix for us this week, perfectly paired with a fine mezcal.

Magnetic Magazine Presents: Ambient Meditations Vol 13 - The Ghost of Brian Eno 2 (Bloom)
This week for episode lucky number thirteen we are again without a guest mix and diving into another experiment. This time around we are doing a sequen to The Ghost of Brian Eno with his other application called Bloom, which is still available for iOS and is very similar to Reflections from our first installment. Bloom is different in that you can interact with it, plotting points on your phone's screen to direct which way the ambient audio soundscape takes you and with different sound profiles as well. If you are more keen to just sit back and become a vegetable, Bloom will accommodate that too. Set the timer, find your profile of choice and lay back into oblivion. So here is a little taste of Brian Eno's Bloom.

Magnetic Magazine Presents: Ambient Meditations Vol 12 - Henrik Lindstrand
This week we are joined by Swedish pianist and composer Henrik Lindstrand who will be releasing his new album Nordhem on October 23rd on One Little Independent Records. His delicate, layered, and intentionally sparse compositions provide the perfect soundtrack for reflection. You can feel the emotions punch through with every stroke of the key, bringing you into Lindstrand's world yet allowing you to make it your own. His mix is remarkably reminiscent of his own work, a soundtrack for spaces and time, gently reminding us of our humanity, allowing us to feel more connected to the moment. You cannot help but be moved by these works, curated perfectly and programmed to enhance your journey, whether in an armchair or a coastal stroll. Headphones on, it's time to get ready for a sonic journey that will stay with you long after it is through.

Magnetic Magazine Presents: Ambient Meditations Vol 11 - The Ghost of Brian Eno (Reflections)
This week we are doing something a little different, our guest is not a person per se but the algorithm of one. The application/album Reflections by Brian Eno is an experiment in machine learning applied to regenerative music, it's an algorithm that recycles loops and textures to create an ongoing ambient composition. It's like literally having the ghost of Eno just living in your iPad ready to create at any time, and what's even cooler is that it moves with the seasons and generates a video image to correspond with the sounds. Download it stat if you like what you hear. Headphones on, let's reflect with the ghost of Brian Eno.

Magnetic Magazine Presents: Ambient Meditations Vol 10 - Bing & Ruth (David Moore)
Ambient Meditations Podcast Vol 10 - Bing & Ruth (David Moore) This week we are joined by Bing & Ruth's David Moore to talk about his new album, inspirations from the California desert, the Farfisa organ, and more. Their new album Species came out on 4AD July 17 (2020) and will mark the fourth album from his shape-shifting modern minimalist/ambient ensemble. Moore's Ambient Meditations mix he has done for us runs almost as a sort of parallel to Species, a cinematic score to man's constant, if not eternal, existential dilemma. Inspired by classic soundtracks, artistic contemplation, and our place in the universe. The mix is expanding, beautiful, and timely in this time of pandemic peril, political strife, and global warming. This one will make you think, feel, and hopefully recalibrate. Enjoy. Tracklist: Gustavo Santaolalla - Tema Amores Perros + Atacama Jefre Cantu-Ledesma - Tracing Back The Radiance Thomas Newman - Angela Undress Chihei Hatakeyama - Alone by the Sea Late Bloomer - Countances Ben Seretan - Shotgun a Cigarette in an Empty Strip Mall Parking Lot

Magnetic Magazine Presents: Ambient Meditations Vol 9 - Hugar
For Volume 9 we are joined by Icelandic duo Hugar consisting of multi-instrumentalists, Bergur Þórisson and Pétur Jónsson. Their music might be described as minimalistic, with only the essential emotive layers to fill in the "white space." You might say there is a certain Icelandic quality to their sound, wide open and dreamy with artifacts of such greats as Ólafur Arnalds and Jóhann Jóhannson, with whom they have also collaborated. Their new album, The Vasulka Effect: Music For The Motion Picture, is out on Sony Music Masterworks later this year on October 2nd. This project is a unique concept, both an inspiring and unique album that is an extension of the original soundtrack they did for the documentary on visual artists Vasulka. For the mix, we are taken on an extensive journey of both familiar and unfamiliar, with a variety of feelings and textures - it is also the most extended mix we have ever had on the show. So put on the headphones and get to know the sounds of Hugar.
