    His mission is to investigate and report irregular ambient and downtempo audio occurrences; especially those that lead to feelings of happiness and wellbeing.

    Schofield's inquiries regularly lead him through realms of ambient, dub downtempo, electro-acoustic, psychedelic chill, sacred bass, wobbly breaks, experimental, electro-folk, modern classical, field recordings, and glitch. Anywhere really.

    He has been an annual feature at the Chill Stage at Rainbow Serpent Festival since 2006, serving up smooth DJ sets of lush, chilled tunes for the heart and mind.

  1. ^ that's quite a conversation on DJTT !!
  2. ^ From the first one? Morten Granau - Tusindfryd (amazing!) Vonoom - Hillred Street Alright, well, maybe two great tracks. Haven't listened to it in a long time. But I remember enjoying the whole compilation for it's varied nature. I'll have to dig it out again and have a listen...
  3. Update: On Tuesday night, after this post, I had another look at my back-up arrangements. By default, I had my NAS drive set to not back-up temporary files. However, Ableton's *.asd files share the same extension as temporary MS Word documents, so that is why they weren't backing up. I turned on the back-up for temp files and they all backed up within 15 minutes. Win!
  4. Seeing Danish Delights Vol 2 reminds me of volume 1, and this cracker of a track: https://youtu.be/nupiw3e8S_A This was a favourite for me for months, if not years! Still love it. (after numerous edits, i give up trying to get the video to appear here....)
  5. Have to say, I have been pretty excited by the prospect of Danish Delights Vol.2. The first compilation a few years back was excellent, with a great range of uptempo and downtempo tracks.
  6. That sounds like a pretty good back-up arrangement Gagarin. Thankfully, software on my NAS drive handles the sync between PC and the NAS, and then the back-up from the NAS to my 3TB HDD. So all I have to do is take my 3TB HDD home, plug it in, and press 'back-up'. I also back-up movies, TV shows, and perhaps most important of all, family photos.
  7. That's rough! I have a 1 TB WD Passport portable drive that my main music collection is on. That is backed up in real time to NAS drive in my house, and the NAS drive is backed up every 1-3 months to another external drive (Seagate 3 TB) that I keep in a locked drawer where I work (so, offsite). I only realised recently that the NAS drive backs up all of the music files - importantly - but does not back up the *.asd files that Ableton creates when you load a track as a clip in Ableton, warp it and save the clip settings. Don't know why as there appears to be no lower size cut-off. Anyhoo.... So if I lose my WD, I will not lose everything, but I will lose the *.asd files. It's not the end of the world (*touches wood*) as most of the clip settings are saved in another folder that I use to navigate Ableton to find tracks to play. I have had my WD for about 5 years now (*touches wood again, and rubs it*), same as my Asus laptop. Interested to hear from other people too.
  8. Kings from Frameworks is an excellent album. Also liked Kalya Scintilla's remix album - or most of it. The Desert Dwellers remix album is mostly stuff released before. Of the two new tracks on it, one of them is on Open Ancient Eyes Remixed.
  9. ^ I like Lump Records, personally. But yeah, they are mostly deep house oriented releases. Though Estray appears on there bit too, which is maybe the source of the crossover timeisart.
  10. Good to see I Awake back. Always liked the Ultimae the album, so interested to listen properly to his Merkaba release. Also welcome for me is Tor's remix album of Blue Book - mostly good stuff in there.
  11. Liquid Bloom - Re:Generations is a good listen. Would have preferred un-mixed tracks though - or at least the option of un-mixed tracks. Haven't listened to Chris Komas' EP yet, but his music is usually pretty good.
  12. G'day! I quite enjoyed Dirtwire's album, and also the Polish Ambassador's new one. And Estray's 'Deep Root Edits Vol​.​1', which came up in my feed because I follow Lump Records. The link above is to his artist page on bandcamp. So that's pretty cool - a few more of his tracks for me to investigate.
  13. Tosca! Nice one. Just finished listening and have to say I really like their new album. Thanks for including it.
  14. They look pretty good. I like the two speakers and a sub combo - but pricey.
