Don’t think twice, it’s all right. This is "Sweet Caroline". A slow dance - both dark and light; blissful and blue, high and low, soft and deep. Made for or against summer madness and winter sadness. A musical odyssey. Tunes from anywhere, anytime… Compiled by Marteen on his deepest heart. Enjoy and hold on to your love. Yes, you.
As with last year, I don't claim to have any authority when it comes to what is 'best,' all I can offer are the things that have deeply moved me, and I feel others would be amiss to lose out on. There are of course many many albums that I wanted to include here, and I'm sure even more that I missed out on completely, but I hope this will at least give you a taste of what my corner of this musical universe has been like this past year.
A hour long mix of eclectic songs with some chillout vibration for busy mind. Like a musical journey / story to be listened late before the year ends.
"The end of all dreams; ready for another voyage."
When I put my first mixtape of funky and unusual Christmas music a couple of years back I had no idea what I'd gotten myself into. A couple of years on, I keep stumbling on more Christmas oddities, so, in what is becoming something of a tradition.
Here is the first installment of my annual Christmas mixtape: rather unimaginatively titled 'A Morning Breeze of Christmas'. As in previous years, I have produced a mix each which you can listen to or download from my Soundcloud page.
All with that Christmas themes! Here is a very special Christmas gift for you and your loved ones. I hope you enjoy and wish you a happy wondrous Christmas and a soulful New Year.
