Words of Solace

I’m slowly building up the output of the Nutrients channel again. Monthly mixes will be there, contrary to my last announcement, and they also will be accompanied by two brand new series, called Break Apart (Synthetic chill or “Neptunian on steroids”, debuting in two weeks) and Forever Travelling (Post-Rock, starting in November 2017).

Nutrients – June ’17

The Nutrients channel will be restructured significantly.

The regular show won’t be continued any longer and I’ll be switching to blog posts only.

The reason is that my feed of new releases lacks a coherent structure and most of the tracks aren’t supposed to be used in a DJ mix anyway.
They still are good tracks on their own and should be heard on shuffle rather than in a strict arrangement like in my episodes.

Since I already started incorporating artists showcase mixes of Four Tet, Flying Lotus and Bonobo and uploaded the Folk mix which is Words of Tenderness, I will definitely continue publishing mixes on Nutrients every now and then. I’m planning to release more artist showcases of the aforementioned artists as well as of Maribou State starting August.



Von Grey – Poison in the Water

Hugh – I Can’t Figure You Out

Forest Swords – Raw Language
