The best new age music is - and always was - a reverberation of psychedelic ambient music, rooted in sources including late 60's Pink Floyd, minimalist composers like Terry Riley, and ancient third-world folk musics. This mix collects new gems from artists working both within and in between these genres. Many are making music in the spirit of the earliest American new age music, before commercialism and relaxation muzak took it far from its roots.
Features music by Ishq, Deep Forest, 8 Bit Weapon, Boris Lelong, Matthew Barlow, Hybrid Palms, Lunaria, Anaamaly, J Mundok, Inner Travels and Joanna Brouk.
Compiled & mixed by Mike G @ Rubycon Sound, September 2016.
