Ambient, dub techno, downtempo, IDM, and some old tracker modules. A weird mash of styles. This mix features a couple new-ish tracks from dbacon and Paul Blackford plus a recent remaster from Brothomstates.

Track #9 Mohamira by Xhale, #12 Inverse Conscious by Darkhalo, and #13 Get On A Journey by Elysis are all old (1998-2000) tracker modules. I think I was holding on to those for the end-of-the-year mod mix, but they sounded good today and I wanted to hear 'em, so here they are.
Track #11 Stars And Rockets by Spiritual South is a cover or re-work of Peter Thomas Sound Orchestra's song of the same name from the Chariots Of The Gods soundtrack. The cover version played here is from the third installment in Ubiquity's excellent Rewind! series. I've warmed to this record over the years - I like it a lot more now than when I first picked it up new. Stars And Rockets and the Spaceboys cover of Space Is The Place are terrific (and of course the two Herbie Hancock covers and the Ryuichi Sakamoto cover, which are what drew me to the record in the first place).
My current favorite in this hour, the highlight of the mix, is Dekc from Brothomstates's newly remastered Kobn-Tich-Ey. I love Dekc and have been hoping for an upgrade to the previous low-quality mp3 version for a long time. The remaster greatly improves the whole album - it was very difficult to make out the detail in some of these tracks before. If you're a fan of moody late '90s IDM then I can't recommend Kobn-Tich-Ey and Brothomstates's other work enough.
I think that's all I have to say right now - this was a weird and diverse selection but I think it works. I like it anyway. I'll be back next week Thursday evening (the 29th) as usual with another episode.
