All songs are stellar.
There are a few ways to get into a mindless rhythm. You could exercise or meditate, or you could just listen to this mix put together by artist India Nielsen. With track after track of Aphex Twin’s “Selected Ambient Works 85-92”, this Mix! is sure to get you in sync with the constant motion within which we live. The album moves impressively through different styles, including minimalism, pure ambience, and classic electronic, very much paralleling to India’s work ethic of merging different rhythms and painting styles into her works. India has devoted the first 13 tracks to Apex Twin’s album, given that she’d listen to this selection on repeat whilst painting at her studio during the evenings. Moreover she’s generously pulled out a bonus track, the sound from The Sims, which the artists describes as “the video game equivalent to shopping centre/elevator music.” allowing us to enter a virtual world behind our one.
