Slow Motion Universe




Somewhere out there in the Multiverse, there is another universe just like ours except that everything runs much slower. With a DIY quantum tunneling device in my studio I've been able to bring over a few pieces of music from this other reality.

I'm sure many folks have heard the tracks "Justin Bieber slowed down 800%" or "Windows startup sound slowed down 2000%."  Those slowed down cuts(and Bieber) come from that alternate universe.

I've used tracks from that other cosmos in a few mixes and used them to remix tracks in many mixes over the years. A previous mix used all slowed down tracks.  You find that mix here...

This new mix is all stretched/slowed tunes as well. There are some pretty recognizable tracks in the mix. Or at least they were recognizable in our universe. Actually most are still familiar if not immediately recognizable.

According to my brother from another mother in the other universe, our sped up music doesn't work quite as well in their ambient mixes. Although if you play Hall & Oates "Kiss on My List" at 45rpm instead of 33rpm you get a nice little dance tune out it. Don't ask how I know that. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this mix from an alternate slow version of our universe.

Cheers!

This was an amazing mix! I found it incredibly powerful. I just discovered this whole stretched out ambient music last year and haven't had a chance to explore it much yet. I thought your mix was excellent. I have just started listening to your mixes in the past couple of months and am slowly working my way backwards through them. You do great work! I have been a fan of ambient music since the late 70's (back before that term even existed--Jarre, Kraftwerk, Kitaro were some of my first albums). I'm so pleased to have discovered your website and look forward to listening to more of your shows. Thanks for sharing your passion and knowledge. I can't wait to see what other new music I discover!
