Whether it's a doorway, a border, a grave or a new way of life, sometimes standing at a threshold can feel like standing on the edge of a cliff, and even momentary thoughts of crossing feel like falling... I'm not sure if it's the November rain here on the west coast of Canada that's making me so introspective lately, but whatever it is makes me want to put the the coffee pot and fireplace on and listen to some of the amazing tracks that have been coming out the past while.

I've been really into two fairly specific styles of track lately. One is spacey and moody, ethereal or 'ghost-like.' The other is more organic, with sounds sampled from 'traditional' instruments. This mix marries these two styles and incorporates a definite 'tip of the hat' to the classic early 90s era of electronic music.
