This is a mix I created for THUMP's Built for the Chill series about nine months ago. Unfortunately the series got canned due to SoundCloud takedowns right before this mix was scheduled to publish. It would have been pretty huge for a lowly small-town hobbyist DJ/blogger/podcaster like myself to have one of my mixes hosted by the VICE network. So I'm a bit bummed to share the mix in this manner, but I'm also happy to finally get it out there.
Thematically it's very much a mishmash of the a lot of the quieter, gentler mixes I've made for my podcast and other entities over the past few years: some vintage ambient, prog, new age, exotica, and soft pop alongside a few newer tracks. Do enjoy.

He's been active in radio for 16 years and counting with a few different projects, namely the film industry talkshow The Drive-in Speakerbox. That show got its start as a spotlight on film scores (and still incorporates film score material between talk segments). Beat Bachs, who goes by The Boom Operator on the show, has been amassing a gigantic collection of scores over the past decade for the show. He was kind enough to pour over this entire archive and pick out the quietest, dreamiest pieces he could find for Gentle Daps XV.
For more of Beat Bachs' projects, check out Art Amiss, a local art collective of which he's the president.
