Following the success of The Ambient Zone (“An excellent compilation from the always interesting Just Music label” The Sunday Times), which featured the “world’s most relaxing song” (Time Magazine) in Marconi Union’s “Weightless,” Just Music has followed up with a second beautiful journey into the immersive word of ambient electronica. The atmosphere over the twelve tracks of ‘winter music’ perfectly encapsulates the approaching mood of quiet introspection, comfort in solitude and promise of the new, following the long dark winter nights. Contributors include some new names alongside familiar Just Music artists and alumni in the likes of Jon Hopkins, Chris Coco, Marconi Union, Digitonal and Echaskech, and the album features nine brand new tracks created exclusively for the album in response to a a beautiful series of carefully selected photo images. Each artist responded to the atmosphere of the photo, translating the feelings evoked in them by the image into an exquisite and fascinating piece of music ambience.
Ambient Zone 2 album (TAO059) is set for release 20th November. It is the 5th volume of the Just Music Cafe Compilation Series.
