6 Jahre Planetarium : Stationary Travels

Brian Housman, curator of the Stationary Travels blog and Mixcloud channel, has been a key influence for my Planetarium sets for many years. I asked him for a submission to the 6-year anniversary of Planetarium (which happened last Friday on November 1) and he kindly put together an entrancing journey through the past six years of ambient music up to very recent releases. It’s an honour to have him back on the decks after the 6-year Helioscope celebration back in 2017.

On November 1, Planetarium had its 5th anniversary. The second and final celebratory set emerges from a retrospective on some very early ambient releases dating back as far as 1988 (Steve Roach) that are deemed essential to the genre’s timeline.
