LUSTRUM: Best Ambient, 2010-2014 (5-Hour Mix)

Peace to Keith Kawaii for the artwork
lus·trum (/ˈləstrəm/) : a period of five years.

There's been plenty of talk of an ambient revival in 2014. But to be fair, ambient has been thriving throughout the 2010s thus far, and it seems to strengthen in both quantity and quality with each passing year. To celebrate its fruitful resurgence, I've pieced together LUSTRUM, a five-hour mix highlighting some of the best ambient released within the past five years that I've come across. Each year gets exactly one hour. Below you can follow along with what is playing via time stamps.

If you want a download link, head over to SoundCloud and give the mix a repost. Then I'll message you a download link.

ANTS Podcast #032: Glowworm Grime

SUBSCRIBE TO ANTS PODCAST: iTUNES, RSS, SOUNDCLOUD, MIXCLOUD, TUMBLR
It's been two and a half years since ANTS offered up an all-grime episode. The decade-old UK music form has dazzled in 2014, so the time has come to examine it once again. The focus this time is "grimegaze," the synth-heavy, melodic strain of grime championed by Dark0 but also practiced by many of the genre's most visible figures. Drawing influences from JRPG soundtracks, ambient and the current reemergence of beat-driven downtempo, these ethereal tracks are breathing new life into grime at a time when many may have predicted its stagnation.

  1. Moleskin - "Slow Dancing With Ms Haversham to Moments in Love in Satis House" [Keysound Recordings]
  2. Visionist - "Acceptance" [Lit City Trax] ab cd ef gh ij kl mn op qr st uv
  3. Kirk Spencer ft. Celestial Trax - "Rain Drift" [Strangerzoo]
