Best of Planetarium 2021, Pt. 3

One year after part 2 of the retrospective on 2021 was released, I have an extra set for you covering the second half of 2021 and underseen gems. Catching up on the recent stuff has been difficult, so please be patient. It might not happen anytime soon, but from what I’ve heard so far, 2022 was just as amazing. Looking forward to do the deep dive again, as I did with 2021 here.

Beryll, Pt. 1

Planetarium had its 9-year anniversary this week. I took some deep dives into 2021 releases again (almost finished finally!) and discovered some real gems for a new Geophon trilogy. The meditative album by Jon Hopkins stood out to me in particular. I took almost every track from it and combined it with a potpourri of autumnal ambient. The three parts of “Beryll” will be released over the course of the winter.

Korund

Planetarium is back from its summer break. We’re starting off with a long-overdue renewal of the beloved Geophon series, this time with lush folk-, electro-acoustic and post-rock summer vibes in the first half and more serious modern classical works in the second half, while ambient takes a background role. I’m looking forward to bringing plenty of new sets to Select subscribers in the coming weeks.
