Wisp-ey atmospheres

Even when I need to relax, I don’t like listening to ‘technically boring’ songs. By that I mean, songs where very little happens, there are very few layers, there are no rhythmic changes etc etc.

But every brain needs a little down time. Or, in my case, something to distract it enough to be able to wind down and rock it gently in to (hopefully) some form of temporary oblivion.

A song that does this really well for me is the Wisp remix of Aphex Twin’s ‘Rhubarb’. It’s an awesome mix of relaxing, atmospheric ambient with an Omni-Trio-esque jungle rhythm mixed in. There are no sudden loud noises to jar you back in to reality, just smooth, groovy ambience.

Track Details: Aphex Twin – rhubarb (Wisp 1159 mix)

If you like that, try: Aphex Twin – lichen (Wisp 1136 mix)
