The Winter Chill series is growing. What started out as me thinking about doing a Winter chillout mix myself has developed into something that is bringing some of my favourite selectors of recent times together. If you didn't catch yesterdays post, Part II came from Balearic Social's Andy Pye and you can catch that [HERE], you can also grab Part I from myself [HERE].
Today I am very happy to be sharing Part III from Matthew Foord. I first came into contact with Matt after he left some very generous and warm comments on my 'Is Anybody Listening?' mix from a few years back over on Soundcloud. Following that I was invited by the chaps at Box Frequency, where Matt is a long time resident, to contribute a guest mix and things grew from there. I think it is safe to say that we connected over music that is interesting and varied; music that takes you on a journey. So it is with great pride that I share the stage with Matt, and Andy in this series of mixes.
The original intention, as suggested by Andy, was to go for a mix of beat-free music. I suppose it would be fair to say that this is Ambient in it's truest of forms, but it is not the only form this music takes and following the first two beat-free mixes, I think it is a nice progression that the third mix takes us into other areas where ambient music plays it's part. I'd much rather let Matthew's mix do the talking, so click play, sit back and let the sounds wash over you. It's a wonderful, wonderful journey.
Before I close off this post with the mix and tracklist, I'd like to invite you to follow Matthew via the links provided below and look out for his periodic shows over on the excellent Box Frequency FM internet radio station, where you can catch him spinning an eclectic range of quality music alongside some fabulous names from the world of music.
Keep an eye out for Part IV of the Winter Chill series which will be coming from the curator of the fabulous 'Quality Music Lovers Society' - George Mihaly.
