12/09/2017: Illuminating the End

 

This week we present the tenth edition in our annual “Slowly” series. This installment is inspired by NGC6565, a cloud of gas that was ejected from a dying star after stellar winds pushed its outer layers into space. It is a collage of hushed, sometimes drowsy sounds. For this reason, the duration of the show will be uninterrupted by voice. For a satisfactory listening experience we recommend finding a comfortable pair of headphones or a nice stereo, and a quiet place.

The Beat Oracle is back in action this week with a slew of new sounds! Daphni starts the set and things get crazy quickly with the dark sounds of Blanck Mass. Odesza and Bicep demonstrate the power of their new albums and why they got picked up by Ninja Tune and its sublabel Counter Records. The show wraps up with emotional and sublime melodies from newcomer Prayer and veteran Four Tet.
