Stats for this track
"When he comes in among trees he will spend time touching them, studying them, sitting very quietly near them and understanding that each tree is a creature, carrying on its individual life, aware of what's happening around it, not just some hunk of wood to be cut down."
The first Portable Sunsets I ever heard was the live set at Mezzanine January 7. I immediately a) fell in love and b) went looking on Soundcloud for mixes including Portable Sunsets tracks, discovering that, whaddya know! there are none. This is my attempt to rectify the situation. Without further ado:
1. Andy Stott - Hi-Rise
2. Martin Donath - Akvedukt (Solar & Poppcke remix)
3. Patrick Chardronnet - Neon
4. Chevel - Before Leaving
5. Portable Sunsets - Tokyo Prompt
6. Andy Stott - Boutique
7. Chevel - Together
8. Chevel - Tren
9. Andy Stott - Long Drive
10. Portable Sunsets - So Long Ago, So Clear
11. Portable Sunsets - Alter Island
12. Mock & Toof - Underwater
13. Motor City Drum Ensemble - Raw Cuts #6
14. Portable Sunsets - Mar Bella
15. Deep Space Orchestra - Riding in My Imaginary Jeep (OOFT! Deep Dub)
16. Mungolian Jet Set - Madre Epics Part 2
This is the first mix I've ever completed to any extent. Yessiree, it's SUPER amateur! Contextualising Portable Sunsets is inevitably going to be somewhat subjective. The idea here is, well, the somewhat Dubbier end of bouncy Tech House. It's supposed to be kinda high energy at the start and then bring you down gently into that long outro on California. Eh it could use some more work, but, well at any rate, here's the effort so far. This is a celebration of the artists included, all of whom are currently doing brilliant work, much of which can be found on Soundcloud. Think of it as a sampler, a paperless offering - if I turn just one person onto one track, one artist, one style, then my work will not have been in vain.
Also I like listening to it :)
