    Buy/stream: https://kompakt.fm/downloads/pop-ambient It’s 2020, the year Pop Ambient turns twenty-one years old, a spritely young adult waltzing out of its teenage joys and tears. Pop Ambient has always stood for a certain classicism and elegance, a kind of beatless music that’s diaphanous and hazy, gossamer and glittering. It’s a music that’s no less inviting for its slow pace and becalmed nature, with a different kind of tension bubbling under the surface. For twenty-one years, KOMPAKT co-founder Wolfgang Voigt has curated a series of peerless compilations that repeatedly find refreshing answers to a simple question – What happens when the dancefloor is empty, and everyone’s home to drift away? As with many other Pop Ambient compilations, Pop Ambient 2021 offers a welcome platform to contributions from both old friends and new faces. It opens with the gorgeous, slo-mo drift of “Of A Vessel”, from new Kompakt signings Blank Gloss. Sending their music out into the world from their home in Sacramento, this duo makes music that’s featherlight and luscious, the muted chime of a guitar over here, the steady hum of a halatial drone over there; everything in its right place, and nothing overdone. The poise is all. Neozaïre (Tobias Sawitzki) and Seventh World (Juho Hietala aka Blamstrain) are our other two new voices, the latter closing (the CD version of) Pop Ambient 2021 with a long, lambent dreamsong, Neozaïre offering us two gaseous, morphing driftworks, “Vor den Toren Europas” and “In Verschwenderischer Fülle” (CD only), etched across with bell-like arpeggios. Pop Ambient has always felt like a field for play for the KOMPAKT cognoscenti, and 2021 is no different, with Joachim Spieth collaborating with Pepo Galán on the sidereal visions of “Libration”, while Leandro Fresco teams up with Thore Pfeiffer on the lovely “Abejorro”. Pfeiffer also contributes two lovely solo miniatures of abstract longing. Yui Onodera calls in again, long distance, for their fourth Pop Ambient running, with the refracted, glinting lightscapes of “Cromo 5” and “Monochrome”, while there are also star turns from Max Würden, both solo and in Reich & Würden (with Luis Reichard), and Morgen Wurde, who drops by with the ‘ethereal drama’ of “Mittsommer”. Pop Ambient gets the balance right: visions and soundscapes, long-distance communications and intimate asides, sweetness and light, drama and dreaming, all wrapped up in floral abstractions – a most beautiful distraction.

    As our reality becomes increasingly restrictive and challenging, it’s a crucial time to develop our consciousness and nurture internal positivity. In essence, the true source of peace and happiness lies inside us, so it’s important to make time to relax and find space to escape inwards. Our special bundle of Palo Santo sticks contains a selection of music designed to transport you away from the stresses of today’s world and into a place of transcendence. Palo Santo (meaning Holy Wood) is a revered, scented stick obtained from the wood of the sacred South American tree. It is used in ceremo- ny and by spiritually-conscious people for the purpose of clearing bad energy from spaces and instilling a peaceful atmosphere. On this compilation you’ll find ambient, calming productions that complement the soothing aroma of the wonderful Palo Santo sticks. So light one up, kick back and drift away into the ether...

    If you were to travel to the vast reaches of space, what might you find there? Would you find familiarity or would find you find the unfathomable? These were the questions that motivated the Vintage Vxndals to create their latest sample library, Orbitals. Vintage Vxndals Presents - Orbitals The Vxndals are back with their own brand of "Space Soul". The goal of this library was to produce a sample library that was progressive in nature and reminiscent of the feeling of floating through the emptiness of space. Each sample has a quality unlike all of the other packs the Vxndals have created so far. Orbitals is a representation of the extreme outer limits of the imagination, a glimpse into a future that has traveled such an incredible distance that it has long since become the past.

    Read more: https://www.lowendtheorists.com/theory-therapy-mixes/15-suso-saiz Suso Sáiz’s music and career resembles few others. Having been at the forefront of Spain’s experimental music scene since the late ‘70s, he founded, together with Maria Villa and Pedro Estevan, the experimental group Orquesta de las Nubes, releasing several albums on Madrid label Grabaciones Accidentales. Over the years, he’s made soundtracks for films, released various solo albums and worked with the likes of Javier Paixariño, Luis Eduardo Aute, Jorge Pardo, Jorge Reyes and Steve Roach. For many though, it wasn’t until Music from Memory started reissuing and releasing Sáiz’s work that he began to garner the attention he deserved. Musically, Sáiz’s intricately crafted, visionary sound feels perfectly suited for the Amsterdam-based label, with their radiant drones, hushed melodies and haunting guitar loops. His latest album Between No Things—a collaboration with ambient peer Suzanne Kraft—expands on a sound Sáiz has perfected over the years. The LP consists of 9 delicately woven sonic sketches whittled down from over 30 hours of raw material between Sáiz and Kraft. It’s as intimate, exploratory and exciting as anything Sáiz has done, a testament to his skills as an artist and consistently open-minded approach towards music. Sáiz’s Theory Therapy mix, recorded at his home just outside of Madrid, follows a similar sonic tapestry. It features music from HTRK's soundtrack to Jeffrey Peixoto's Scientology documentary, plus those from K-LONE, Bing & Ruth and the excellent Home Normal label. It’s warm and inviting, hypnotic and atmospheric, contemplative and calming; in short, 60 minutes of pure bliss. @saizsuso @music-from-memory

Pop Ambient has always stood for a certain classicism and elegance, a kind of beatless music that’s diaphanous and hazy, gossamer and glittering. It’s a music that’s no less inviting for its slow pace and becalmed nature, with a different kind of tension bubbling under the surface. For twenty-one years, KOMPAKT co-founder Wolfgang Voigt has curated a series of peerless compilations that repeatedly find refreshing answers to a simple question – What happens when the dancefloor is empty, and everyone’s home to drift away? As with many other Pop Ambient compilations, Pop Ambient 2021 offers a welcome platform to contributions from both old friends and new faces.

Sending their music out into the world from their home in Sacramento, this duo makes music that’s featherlight and luscious, the muted chime of a guitar over here, the steady hum of a halatial drone over there; everything in its right place, and nothing overdone. The poise is all. Neozaïre (Tobias Sawitzki) and Seventh World (Juho Hietala aka Blamstrain) are our other two new voices, the latter closing (the CD version of) Pop Ambient 2021 with a long, lambent dreamsong, Neozaïre offering us two gaseous, morphing driftworks, “Vor den Toren Europas” and “In Verschwenderischer Fülle” (CD only), etched across with bell-like arpeggios. Pop Ambient has always felt like a field for play for the KOMPAKT cognoscenti, and 2021 is no different, with Joachim Spieth collaborating with Pepo Galán on the sidereal visions of “Libration”, while Leandro Fresco teams up with Thore Pfeiffer on the lovely “Abejorro”. Pfeiffer also contributes two lovely solo miniatures of abstract longing. Yui Onodera calls in again, long distance, for their fourth Pop Ambient running, with the refracted, glinting lightscapes of “Cromo 5” and “Monochrome”, while there are also star turns from Max Würden, both solo and in Reich & Würden (with Luis Reichard), and Morgen Wurde, who drops by with the ‘ethereal drama’ of “Mittsommer”.
