Best of Planetarium 2020, Pt. 1

As is tradition since 2012, Planetarium’s favourite picks of the last 12 months appear together in a compilation consisting of two extra-length mixes. This past year was particularly challenging to catch up to: The pandemic made plenty of artists spend much more time in their studios and Bandcamp, the primary platform to purchase ambient music from, introduced their fee-slashing fridays. At the moment, my inbox still has about 2500 unread notification mails about new releases sent since August 2020, mostly from labels and artists that I’m not following that closely (I try to cover my favourite labels and artists sooner in a “fast-lane” manner). Chances are high that I’ll come across some more obscure picks in the coming months (follow #PlanetariumRecommends on Twitter!). In any case, Planetarium has seen yet another healthy increase in followers and I’m happy that you keep listening to my mixes. Special thanks goes out to the Select subscribers who are eager to check out limited releases weeks in advance! Off to another, hopefully less depressing year at some point!
