Through The Past Darkly

A couple of months ago, I was offered to do an ambient set on my friend Jeff Prémont‘s radio show, in Quebec City, but for some reason, things didn’t pan out.

Nonetheless, I thought recording an ambient mix was a good idea.

While preparing that set I’ve titled Headspace, I decided I also wanted to record another one that would be some of my favourite tracks that don’t really fall into a specific genre, or rather that fall into so many different ones that it would be hard to fit them in my more niche oriented sets like Tech House and Cosmic Disco.

However, after doing a preliminary selection of tracks for that second mix, I realized I was going into two very distinct directions: a more guitar oriented one, and a smooth one.

In the end, I decided to concentrate on the smoother side and that became the third installment of the Loungin’ with Monsieur Seb series, a series whose two previous installments already date back quite a few years.

If you’re wondering about the title of this post, well, I guess after listening to the them, you’ll understand…
