Hochsee, Pt. 1

After a hiatus during the second half of February, Planetarium is back in a slightly changed format: Since there’s (1) so much good ambient music out there and (2) my professional life requires my attention even more than in previous years, I decided to scrap the limit of twenty-ish tracks for one mix and instead tell a story of multiple chapters. For the first Neptunian story called “Hochsee” (high seas) I selected 66 tracks in total which fit the maritime theme well and split them into four chapters of equal length. Each part is its separate mix, but all are selected and arranged on the same day or weekend and listening to all chapters back to back as soon as they are released will definitely be the best listening experience. This first part is available to everyone from day 1 and a new part will be available in limited (Select) release every subsequent week. Wide release dates will be determined soon, but I plan to do more stories in this format for other series (Nox, Geophon, Jovian, Lumen) and I may use this release pattern for them as well.
I hope you’ll like this and you can rest assured that the quality of the selection is not deteriorating, I just need to finally play the hundreds of tracks in my library.

Best of Planetarium 2019, Pt. 1

It’s yearmix time! This year I collected 87 tracks in total which I deem noteworthy for a year-end retrospective. However, in order to prevent the mixes from having a 5-hour-plus runtime the two main “Best of Planetarium 2019” mixes will be roughly 2 hours or 20 tracks in length. The hardcore fans (Select subscribers) will have the option to listen to all 87 tracks in one single mix to be released in February.
