The Winter Music Mix

The Winter Mix

This is the third of what will be four seasonal mixes by Scott Eastlick that will be gracing the pages of AudioStream on a solstice-type schedule. We started with the Summertime Music Mix late because Eastlick hadn’t joined AudioStream as a contributor by June 21st of this year, but we were timely with The Fall Mix and now we’re back again and this time with the skies dark for most of every day’s 24-hour cycle, Eastlick is dropping The Winter Mix on us just past the last Solstice of 2018.

We hope you love The Winter Mix (it was a tough one for Scott to nail down) and feel free to contribute your thoughts on what songs you love to listen to and think represents Winter in your particular life situation in our comments section.

While in summer months my music selections beg for everyone to come to the party, the winter finds me celebrating isolation. 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. This delicate and patient cold weather soundscape is ideal for nights spent indoors, aware that being alone isn’t the same as being lonely.
