dubscapes & dreamscapes

I love the end of the year because of all the lists that get posted all over the place.  I love discovering releases that I knew nothing about.  The folks over at Headphone Commute have started their mammoth collection of 15 best of lists here.  

Over at A Closer Listen they have lists for best field recordings, modern composition, experimental, post rock, overall, etc. and guest lists.

Secret Thirteen has a ton of guest lists where I found a bunch of stuff I'd never heard of.

There is a nice eclectic list over at Textura that is worth checking out.

While cruising these lists I came across some excellent electronic music.  Some of techno, some idm, some dub.  I found enough ambient/dub stuff to make me want to do a new dubby & dreamy mix.  So that's what this new mix is, a collection slow beats with a dubby feel with some ambient synth washes to keep things dreamy.

Excellent mix Dave, really capturing the 'floatiness' of dub. This is your best dub based mix for me. :)

That Andy Stott album keeps kicking ass for me. Nice to see you included it.
