Although this new year looks promising with a new Hospital compilation and a Calibre LP around the corner, I’ll use the start-of-year gap in releases to go on hiatus with Distant – this Yearmix being the final set for now. The time I am able to commit to producing sets is getting shorter every year, so I’ll focus on a regular output for Planetarium and Helioscope instead.

Distant Anthology

Even if it sounds a bit like it, this is not the final outing for the liquid drum and bass specialised channel. It is a retrospective of a never-seen-before kind for Distant celebrating the 100th mix release. Had lots of fun crate digging, but my limited time did not allow me to dive as deep as I’d like to.
Let’s see how it resonates with you. Maybe I’ll start a classics mix series from this.
