Stunning ambient mix from Alan Ritchie
Once in a while, we get a mix thats so special that we have to feature it on the front page..
One of Phnom Penh’s finest DJs, Sir Alan Ritchie has graced us with a beautifully crafted ambient soundscape inspired by the recent Perseid Meteor Shower.
Future and past classics from the likes of As One, FSOL, Kenny Larkin and many more will take you on a journey far beyond the bounds of earth and far faraway beyond the stars…simply sublime.
The Perseids, which peak during mid-August, are considered to be the best meteor shower of the year. With very fast and bright meteors, Perseids frequently leave long “wakes” of light and color behind them as they streak through the Earth’s atmosphere. The Perseids are one of the most plentiful showers (50-100 meteors seen per hour) and occurs with warm summer nighttime weather, allowing sky watchers to easily view the shower.
Perseids are also known for their fireballs. Fireballs are larger explosions of light and color that can persist longer than an average meteor streak. This is due to the fact that fireballs originate from larger particles of cometary material. Fireballs are also brighter, with magnitudes brighter than -3.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/219247787″ params=”auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true” width=”100%” height=”600″ iframe=”true” /]
