With the other mixes I’ve done for AudioStream and InnerFidelity having run the range of musical genres, there is of course a contingent of readers who have an aversion to electronic music. I felt inclined to offer something of a course correction for the classic audiophiles who proudly hold their ground.

Summing up a decade of music while you’re still in it can be a tricky proposition. Like looking at a large, intricate painting with your eyes just inches from the canvas.

While I haven’t heard many people describing this year in music as being particularly revolutionary, a steady stream of solid releases made 2019 more than palatable.

My most experimental of the seasonal series, this winter selection features minimalist electronic music picked for pristine production to reflect the crispness of the weather outside, while favouring a low-frequency warmth intended to heat whatever room you’re in like a smouldering fireplace.

As far as religious holidays go, none have been as potently marketed as Christmas. Defined by an endless stream of catchy original songs, unabashed commercialism, and a magical mascot, Christmas often seems more like a Disney production than an especially holy endeavour. Irrespective of our individual beliefs, Christmas exists as an open-source holiday that everybody is able to celebrate in different ways and for different reasons.

Where the best winter music celebrates solitude, summer selections should be generously inclusive: Like nachos, cold beer, and BBQs, this music is meant for sharing.
