Helioscope’s liquid and drum & bass channel Distant celebrates five years of existence (133 mixes published and counting) with its annual rewind. Fifty highlights released in the past 12 months were chosen and edited thoroughly to fit an adventurous 100-minute journey through 2018.

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.
