POTW (2019/7): Anima 27 by RE Junesworth

This week’s Playlist Of The Week is RE Junesworth’s lovely Anima 27: Surreal / Cosmic / Lo Fi / Synth / Psychedelic / Atmospheric / Ambient which they describe as, “a selection of electronic music with industrial influences, downtempo and lo fi, and some ambient tracks for calm breaks”. With it being instrumental, it’s the kind of playlist you can put on and leave playing in the background, allowing you to dig into work that requires some fairly deep concentration. And at over 8 hours long, you’re not going to need to worry about what to play next in the middle of a tricky task. Tracks range from those from better-known artists like Alan Gogoll, Lemongrass, Seneca B and Shpongle, to some hidden gems from some underground acts.

Although they would sit well in this playlist, it doesn’t include any Flungundi tracks at the time of writing. Flugundi is the home of RE Junesworth’s own artistic endeavours, which are well worth checking out.

And, if you enjoy this playlist and would like to explore further, there are actually a whole load of other Anima playlists from the same curator, with emphasis on different genres each time, but staying within the realms of chillout music.

Playlist of the Week (2018/23)

This week’s POTW is Lis from Adra Sengué, who is from the beautiful Baden-Württemberg region of Germany, which I have happy memories of visiting on several occasions.  (There’s also an almost-parallel playlist on Soundcloud). Adra is a music fan and also manager at Rogalist Records, an independent electronica record label. Rogalist, in its own words, focusses on “electronic music oriented to psychedelic dub deephouse with world & jazz influences and acoustic elements”. As that’s a bit of a mouthful, it’s probably easier to just have a listen to what they produce; there’s some pretty cool and interesting music!

This playlist features artists that work with the Rogalist label, such as Spaceschneider and Dephinite, as well as a huge variety of other independent artists. (You may recognise some of the artists’ names if you’ve been following Playlist of the Week for a while!)
