Switching focus

Tuesday, 1 October 2013 by Marcin Drabot , under

There has been much silence here. Allow me to break it now so that things may become clearer for anyone who'd like to immerse into more mixed ambient goodness.

I'll be releasing all my mixes through platform.
You can find me here:

There probably won't be any more posts or download links here on this blog. But for all those who'd like to not be stuck with is this place. I'll be throwing my mixes in there shortly after mixcloud release.

Big thank you to all who listened and enjoyed my work here. I hope you'll stay with me. There is still much more I'd like you to hear.

[mix] Fairytales

Saturday, 11 August 2012 by Marcin Drabot , under , , ,

Haven't been putting much here for some time. So what I'd like to present now is somewhat special. This mix is considerably shorter than the other ones. It's also got quite some vocals.
Let yourself be swept away by these magical and mystical songs. Fairytales are not always good and happy, right?

Here is the albumlist:
Księżyc - Księżyc (1996)
Nigel Ayers, John Everall & Mick Harris ‎– Mesmeric Enabling Device (1999)
Arche - Arche (2001)
Brian Eno - On Land (1982)
Bernhard Günter ‎– Crossing The River (Night Music) (2001)
Hati - Zero Coma Zero (2005)
Joanna Brouk ‎– Sounds Of The Sea (1990)
Hybryds ‎– Dreamscapes From A Dark Side (1996)

Come on, dream a little.

Mixed feelings

by Marcin Drabot , under

For each and every person who should ever read this: greetings. It's great to have you here.
My name is Aairria. I have many interests and some of them are associated with The Art Of Music.
After admiring the beauty of some ambient mixes I managed to find and listen to I decided to also do this. And so - apart from my work as a musician - I will post here my attempts to present other musician's music in the most enjoyable of ways.

It is worth a mention that I will not restrict my mix files in lenght. I will also refrain from writing down a complete track-after-track playlist. I believe a list of source albums should do the job.

There is also a final and important notice. All music I place here on this blog is my tribute to all the artists whose sound I choose to present. I am eternally keen on buying the music I love and shall encourage everyone to do it also. However if you are an artist and would like your music removed from here please - just let me know.
