One of my favorite ambient albums from the first half of 2023 is "Intrapersonal Experience" by Saphileaum. It's a great combination of atmospherics and percussion, reminiscent of 90s Steve Roach tribal ambient. After hearing this album I needed to do a drum/percussion-based mix and "Summoning The Spirits" is the result.
Another recent discovery makes its way into this mix - The Rain Dogs. So far I only have one of their albums but I plan on buying many more. I have to pace myself though. Their album, From Abydos To Dendera, has shades of Jon Hassell and other 4th world styles that I love. The tracks fit perfectly in this mix.
I hope you enjoy the atmospheres and the rhythms.
