From the borders of Tibet to the beaches of Hong Kong and the coastal marshes of Essex, the 2nd An Di Yi album, ‘A Floating Life’ is a chilled, global travelog, rich with natural ambiences and found sounds, blending the music of east and west.

It will be released on 28th November.  The track you can hear featured in the player below is  One way of reading it – the third preview track to be released on SoundCloud. It was inspired by a trip to Taiwan and includes early morning ambience recorded in a Japanese roof-garden, supplemented by  the sounds of the incredibly popular and successful Eslite bookshop.

For more musical journeys, have a look around. There’s over two hours of music to listen to.

Launch date confirmed

A Floating Life will be available on bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify and all the usual places from 28th November.

Chosen by Dirk Maassen

My remix of Dirk Maassen's 'Open' has been selected for inclusion on the 2nd Volume of his Einklang album, to be released soon.

His original had an amazing vocal from Skylar Grey, which I wanted to dial right up, so I moved things around quite a …

Monotronaut’s ‘Strange Balloons’ is a lush synth, string and guitar texture treat, with some great drum programming featuring lots of snares. ‘It’s a long way down’ from Headcharge777 opens with an insanely reversed distorted guitar solo which surprisingly leads us into a soulful balled with beautifully picked guitar and an appealingly fragile vocal underpinned with strings and even …
