Our Chill Out Tent classic this week is the sublime ‘Sunset Village’ from Beverly Glenn Copeland, originaly released on cassette in 1986. It remained relatively unknown until a few year ago where it began to circulate among collectors. This rediscovery has lead to a second blossoming of his career, a documentary biopic, the re- release of his full discography and recognition of the significance of his new age, folk, electronica compositions. Enjoy the music and films below, don’t miss his RBMA interview and who knows maybe we can get to see him perform live one day soon?
What’s not to love about Swiss harp playing new age legend Andreas Vollenweider playing a series of mini concert from his home studio?
Originally premiered on The Chillout Tent live stream session #5. The official release on digital platforms is 4th Sept 2020 and vinyl 6th Nov 2020
NuNorthern Soul proudly presents Dimun, an overlooked neo-classical / ambient fusion track by Faroe Islands-based producer Kristan Blak’s Yggdrasil project. Label boss ‘Phat’ Phil Cooper was playing G! festival on the Faroe Islands in 2019 and as part of the experience the delegates, artists and DJs where invited to see and experience some of the cultural spots and institutions of the Faroe Islands. One of those was Tutl records owned by Kristian Blak. Tutl records is a wonderful record store and label representing the wealth of amazing Faroese recording talent and has been around for years. tutlrecords.com Kristian invited a few people to his house and he played the piano line of Dimun, Phil recorded it on his phone and could not stop watching it… He eventually contacted Kristian to ask about the music which led to it being licensed for this release.
