Yggdrasil – Dimun [Mike Salta & Mortale remix]

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.

Our Friends in Bali…

We’re busy putting the finishing touches to out next big event, the Chill Out Tent – ‘Around the World’ stream next week. It’s pretty exciting to see the global journey taking shape and realising the quality of the performances we’ll be sharing and the great international crews we’ll be working with.

We’re really looking forward to linking up with our friends in Bali, that’s Baliaric FM and Adrian Giordano who are hosting a poolside session at the incredibly beautiful Taman Bebek. This will also feature a chilled set from Indonesian DJ Seabass with support from local musician Baba Agus who will improvise with flute and tabla. 

Broadcasting from the beautiful and vibe-rich island of Bali, Baliaric.fm is run by music lovers, for music lovers. The station plays 24/7, including playlists, shows, and live-streams from studios, private villas and other stunning locations.

The venue for the session, Taman Bebek is now an iconic boutique hotel perched on the Sayan Ridge in Ubud, Bali. It dates back to the 1930s, when the Canadian ethno-musicologist, Colin McPhee and his anthropologist wife, Jane Belo built a Balinese house and beautiful garden on the edge of the ridge above the magnificent Ayung River valley. During the 1930s this was a playground and source of inspiration to the rich and famous.

In 1980, when Bali lover, landscape artist and writer Made Wijaya acquired the land, only the foundations of these houses remained. He restored it to it’s former glory and it became a favourite hang out of jet setters like David Bowie, Yoko Ono, Mick Jagger and Francis Coppola. We’ll be able to experience it soon too, can’t wait…

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…
