One of the benefits of making and posting mixes for all these years is getting to know some like-minded folks from around the world. One of those is my good friend, Jason O'Gorman, from the city of Cork in Ireland.
Jason did a guest mix for me way back in 2008. Wow, typing that just made me realize that Low Light Mixes has been around for a long time - 8 years this month, an eternity in internet years.
Anyway, back to Jason. You can find his 2008 mix, called Satellite, here... Satellite. I really like that mix and have always wanted Jason to do another. And now, 6 years later, we have "Across the Water." Jason describes it this way - "There's a lot of contrast in this mix due to the theme, but it still flows. The mix is a 'journey' across an ambient ocean, to dark and beautiful places."
When I listen to my own mixes, I always hear every transition which at times can distract from the music. But with Jason's mix I get lost in the flow, as one tunes blends into the next. I love not knowing what's coming next. Jason's mix is wonderful at transporting you from one place to another. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have. And hopefully Jason won't wait 6 more years to produce another gem.
