Introducing the new AiMT record label...



I'm now nearly 10 years into music blogging and five years into music podcasting. I guess it was inevitable that I dabble with curating a label one of these days:

antslabel.bandcamp.com

The launch release is by Balki Sagan, an ambient project of yours truly. It's one long, blissful lo-fi track. I've spent a lot of time with single-track albums lately and wanted to try my hand at it. You can score it for $1 on Bandcamp:



As far as future plans for the label, I'm keeping my options open to artist albums, compilations, physical releases, and charity releases. I'm excited to see where this goes!

Thanks to everyone who has supported AiMT over the years. This is a big step, and without the support and love I've gotten, I doubt I'd be daring enough to try this.

Baby Armie - n10.as Launch Week Mix, 02/03/2016



n10.as is a new, up and coming internet radio station based out of Montreal. I was lucky enough to be invited to contribute to their launch week programming back in March. Since then they've been killing it with consistently solid programming, as evidenced by the heaps of content on their Mixcloud. Whatever NTS is doing for London, n10.as may end up doing for Montreal. Can't wait to see the station grow and flourish.

I submitted this 50-minute ambient mix as my contribution. It touches on classic drone and new age with newer stuff and some '90s rave-era ambient house to boot.

  1. Michael Stearns - "Star Dreams (Peace Eternal)" [Hearts of Space, 1988]
  2. F.U.S.E. - "Nightdrive" [Plus 8 Records, 1993]
  3. Former Selves - "Selige Sehnsucht" [Carpi Records, 2015]

  6. The Sabres of Paradise - "Smokebelch II (Beatless Mix)" [Warp Records, 1993]
  7. Tim Story - "The Rainy Season Dies Hard" [Cicada Records, 1987]
  8. Les Halles - "Misleading Familiarity" [Noumenal Loom, 2015]
  9. Obconic - "Silica Gel" [Beverage Records, 1996]
  10. David Lange - "Tales of Snow" [Dav'Länge Music, 1985]
