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!

4 Jahre Planetarium

For the fourth anniversary of the by far most popular show and channel on Helioscope.NET, we’re going back to the first year of episodes between 2013 and 2014. Back then, Frank Korf wanted me to produce a regular show similar to Planetarium’s predecessor Night Hawk Radio and we collaborated on the first lot of mixes. The style has shifted more towards pure ambient and drone in the last two years, but it’s always great to go crate-digging for these gems. So here is a small selection of my favorite tracks that I played on the first twenty-ish episodes of Planetarium:

4 Jahre Planetarium (Retrospektive 2)
01 Lights Dim with Gallery Six – Echoes of the Ongoing Riot [Kaico]
02 iambic – Touch the Sky [Laridae]
03 Chequerboard – Dunes [Lazybird]
04 Rauelsson – Hourglass I [Sonic Pieces]
05 Hammock – Then the Quiet Explosion [Hammock]
06 Helios – In Everything Was Given [Unseen]
07 Benoît Pioulard – Censer (Segue Remix) [Lost Tribe]
08 Luke Howard – Pan [Lukktone]
09 Good Weather For An Airstrike – Two Miles of Uncertainty [Rural Colours]
10 Olan Mill – Country [Serein]
11 Jónsi & Alex – Happiness [Parlophone]
12 Julianna Barwick – Pyrrhic [Dead Oceans]
13 Levi Patel – And She Translated into the Sky
14 Andrew Bayer – All This Will Happen Again [Anjunabeats]
15 Ólafur Arnalds – Fyrsta [Erased Tapes]
16 Rhian Sheehan – Sileo [LOOP]
17 Ben Woods – Another Dream
18 Bitcrush – Post (Nichts ist wie vorher, Bersarin Quartett RMX) [n5MD]
