Our Friends in London…

You might have seen him mentioned in our lineup announcement for our THE CHILL OUT TENT – AROUND THE WORLD event this weekend, we’re honoured to welcome chill out legend and ambient pioneer Mixmaster Morris to his Chill Out Tent debut.

Morris is playing at 16:00 BST (17:00 CEST) on Sunday 21st June, with a ‘Mixmaster Morris Goes To India’ set that was under wraps when we spoke, but he did confirm that it would be featuring some super rarities including a track by Haruomi Hosono, so definitely one not to miss.

Morris told us that he’s been enjoying the peace and quiet of lockdown in his central London base, but has been keeping busy with streaming sets, his regular Mixcloud shows and preparations for playing at the official Glastonbury online event on July 3/4. We’re really happy he’s been able to join us and hope you can too.

To give you a taster of Morris’s style, here’s a sublime mix he shared recently; an hour of the Art of Noise…

Global Communication – 14:31

This week’s Chill Out Tent classic is another timeless electronic masterpiece, Global Communication’s ‘14.31’ from their 1994 album 76:14. Tom Middleton and Mark Pritchard’s collaboration is a slow meditative pulse punctuated by the ticking of an antique clock. Definitely a track to get lost in…

Hard to find physical copies of this album, but committed fans and completists can now order this amazing box set from Bleep, don’t sleep on this one…

Blade Runner Blues – Vangelis

Our next Chill Out Tent classic is the majestic Blade Runner Blues from the Vangelis soundtrack of the 1982 iconic science fiction feature. Eventually released in 1994 after years of legal wrangling it remains a seminal electronic landmark. Arguably best enjoyed in the 2007 special edition triple pack…

Coldcut – Autumn Leaves [Irresistible Force mix]

This week’s Chill Out Tent classic is a collaboration of two seminal forces in electronic music; cut & paste pioneers Coldcut and the grand wizard of ambient Mixmaster Morris in his ‘Irresistible Force‘ guise. Morris takes the classy Coldcut version of the jazz standard and stretches it out into ten sublime minutes of languid synths and strings, it’s deep, dreamy and emotionally affecting. Recalling memories of Morris closing one of his legendary Big Chill Sunday night sets with this, leaving a blissed out crowd of horizontal chillers…

Music For Imagination – Chris Coco

Chris drops the next in his series of Music For… EPs. This time he takes a more enlivening, electronic approach to spark some imagination.

South London’s finest SONLIFE remixes Coco’s bubbling slow house track Music As A Foreign Language into something deeper and darker. Paul Hartnoll (of the Orbital brothers), Lol Hammond (ex Drum Club) and Coco give us an uplift with a track from their Film Music EP and finally Ibiza-based wunderkind Antonio Prosper brings us down with the perfect Landing. Enjoy and let your mind flow free…
