ReMixes that sooth the mind

43 posts in this topic

What do you guys think are ones that fit?

Not too harsh, not too calm. A very very nice mellow that just takes your mind from what ever stress you may be dealing with at the time and brings it somewhere very relaxing.

I used to have a big playlist with if not soothing at least calm ocremix stuff. Lost the tracks in a torrent/sorting/grouping/idunno iTunes library screwup thing, re-added them and they didn't then reappear in the playlist. Oh well.

Found something, tho just 08-09 and might only have half the 09 ones. Don't remember what I counted as calm/soft/soothing when I made this (apparently both FlowTropiks and Riptide were counted as such) but it should give you a few mixes to check out.

Wow, that is quite a list! I will definitely have to check them out. Same with the other recommendations. Thank you all for posting them :)

Green Amnesia, by DiscoDan.

Always a classic :)

This is fantastic! Do you by chance have anything else that carries this same sort of vibe?

My thoughts exactly! Glad you like it.

Well... probably not. I concocted a shortlist today at work from what I have on my player (and added a few since), but I've thrown a lot of different genres in here. If you like the instrumentation in Latte, then definitely check out his collab with sephfire (first rec below); it has a different feel so it might not fit your mood quite as well, but it's still very good.

I've toyed with the idea of making a Fatty Acid thread and asking for all his long-lost remixes. Perhaps I should get off my ass and do that. It's truly a shame how so much awesomeness by so many artists has been lost to time.

Best bets:

Fatty Acid and sephfire - Under A New Moon

Blue Magic - New Beginnings

Danneman & Silverknekt - Vampire Spanker (relaxing, not funny, as long as you can avoid saying "[...] with a spatula")

Darke - A Deus Ex Harpa (Second Seal Mix)

Darke - Stranger In The Desert

djp - Twoson Hits The Road (holy crap I didn't realize how much I liked this until just now)

JJT - A Day In The Life Of A Gambler (seconding Rozovian's rec)

LousySpy - Blue Vacation (if you can overlook the... lousy... trumpet and flute sound fonts)

Mazedude - Island Of Zeal (as much the source as the remix)

mv - Cammy By Night (with a close second: Malcos and RTF - Army Girl [album link])

Tepid - A Rose For Zelda (too calm? too beautiful not to list)

The Wingless - One Girl In All The World

ToN - I Love This Radio

Vampire Hunter Dan - My Home, My Friends

Close calls:

Blak_Omen - The Belmont Chill

Darke - A Whisper And A Shadow

Darke - Searching For Light

Darke - The Beautiful Traveller (direct link)

Darke - The Father Of All

djp - Revival Day Impoetus (fast pace, upfront beats, but very, very cool vibe; it's a tossup)

Gux - Darkworld Jazz

halcyon (halc) - Marihana On My Mind (whatever, I love it)

Joshua Morse - Marble Dash

Mazedude - K-Pax For Evermore (seconding Rozovian's rec) (warning: Mazedude synths)

Mazedude - Reich Lake

McVaffe - IceCapped

McVaffe - Jazzer Soul

mp - Beginning Of The Fantasy

NoppZ - 3 Ways

Palpable - Twilight Of Ivory (grain of salt: this does it for me, but it seems I'm in the minority)

Robotaki - Memorial Cathedral WIP (fucker needs to sub this) (same disclaimer as the djp track)

The Pancake Chef - Dubbing The Body (as much the source as the remix)

Ziwtra - Crash/Restore (album link)

Zoltan Vegvari - Intro Jazz

There's a slew of appropriate stuff, especially orchestral and solo instrumental, that I'm missing, but meh. It's a start.

Also, goat. Soothe this.

AmIEvil - River Of Time AmIEvil

This one is solid gold.

Sleep my Sephy - Pot Hocket also comes to mind.

Some tracks on the Time and Space album are AMAZING.

And Jillian Goldins "Through Sand and Snow" album. Not ReMixes per say, but most definitely soothing, not to mention super appropriate for the upcoming season. Great Christmas Disc.
