Rather than go over new tracks in this hour (there aren't many) I want to call attention to a couple old pieces that appear around the end of the mix. Let's start with #12 Atmologic by Ares Voo from their EP of the same name. Released 2014 through Ektoplazm, it's described there as psybreaks and psychedelic chill-out music. I like this one a lot, I've always enjoyed playing it in sets. The first two tracks in particular are crisp, snappy, & play well with modern electro sounds.

Track #14 Waving Not Drowning by Digitalis (Seb Taylor) is played here from the Elastic comp on 21-3 Records. Picking up that compilation some 20 years ago tipped me off that psybreaks is a thing I should be paying attention to - I both liked it and didn't understand it. Psybreaks are interesting, weird. Digitalis has thankfully made Waving Not Drowning available digitally along with many of his old '90s productions through his bandcamp on a comp called The Early Years: 1995-2000. I encourage anyone reading to flip through that retrospective, see if anything catches your ear.

The final track of this set is the Seattle original mix of Integratron by ATOI Seattle AKA Ambient Temple Of Imagination, released 1994 (same year as Central Fire's Shout Going Out). I think I found this by way of R.A.N.D. Muzik's The Future Was Visible, a repress of selections from the Visible Records catalog. Several of the Visible artists have bandcamp pages - ATOI, Not Breathing, Seofon - and all are worth checking out.

Alright I'm coming up on time now so that'll have to do for notes. Thanks for listening, be sure to check out the releases linked above, maybe pick up a single or two. I'll be back next week at my usual time, Thursday evening, with another mix, something slower.
