Mix: Looking for the Sun

I don't know how this came to be, but here's a summer mix for you.
It might have something to do with the fact that I've been seeing some of that elusive Swedish sunlight these last couple of days, which is rare at this time of the year. So, here's a mix about longing. For summer.
A few months early, or late, depending on your perspective. Tracklist:

00:00 ATLAS SOUND - Malmö
02:35 AIR FRANCE - Beach Party
05:27 BONGWATER - Free Love Messes Up My Life
07:41 SEABEAR - Teenage Kicks (Undertones cover)
13:57 SUN - Mosquito
18:43 STUDIO - No Comply

Mix: Auditory Bliss

It seems a lot of visitors are coming here from Low Light Mixes and such, so I'll post something a little more in that ambient, warm drone vein, if only to satisfy a few. Mixing drones and ambient music is not as demanding as other genres. There's no need to actually time anything, they all just collide gracefully, at glacial speeds - hence the tracklist not being more specific regarding the time frame. I actually passed out listening to a drone once, due to lack of sleep and something close to an auditory overload. It was nice. That track is embedded here as well. The mix was originally an effort to offer healing, therapeutic sounds - for plants and hearts, so to speak. Does well in early mornings or late evenings.

~00:00 GARETH HARDWICK - Lost In the Memory

STARS OF THE LID - Slight on the Childproof
NIKOS VELIOTIS & DAVID GRUBBS - The Harmless Dust pt.2
