We’ve been busily preparing for London Design Festival at the Dezeen office all this week, in particular setting up our Dezeen and MINI Frontiers exhibition at designjunction. So it was nice to wind down on Friday evening with this silky smooth chill-out track by UK producer Jo Noon.
Only You is a chilled-out, silky smooth liquid drum and bass track by Atlanta-based producer Sub Terrestrial. One for the end of the night.
It's rare for a chill-out track to make a big first impression - they tend to be slow-burners by nature - but there's something immediately arresting about Hanging Out Of Moving Vehicles by USA artist RyIm.
We can't put our finger on it, but the combination of skittering drums and echoey guitars seems to hit the spot from the moment the track kicks in.
The music we used on today's movie about Domaine de Boisbuchet in France is a track called Filtered Sunshine by Jordan Thomas Mitchell, which we featured on Dezeen Music Project last year.
Here's another track by Jordan Thomas Mitchell called Dead Messenger, which features a similarly gentle acoustic guitar pattern alongside a bluesy electric guitar riff and samples of bird song.
This lush, downtempo electronica track is by a UK artist based in Stoke-on-Trent called Oathless. The track is taken from an EP of the same name released by online label Curious Absurdities in October. You can listen to the full EP for free here.
This soothing instrumental is the latest track by Helsinki-based musician Cillian Warfield. A delicate acoustic guitar picking pattern forms the basis of the track, from which mournful horns and eerie bell sounds emerge as the track builds up, before fading back down again in a gentle swell.
Listen to the other chill-out tracks on Dezeen Music Project here.
Setting up a pop-up is always a hectic business, so we've been very appreciative of all of the great chill-out tracks that have been coming our way. This one is a new track by Remote Scenes, who we originally featured back in May. Make sure you check that track out too.
We've had a hot, busy day at the press preview of Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei's Serpentine Gallery Pavilion which opens to the public tomorrow, so we were grateful to get back to the office and find this tranquil chill-out track by AB2G to wind down to.
The track was submitted by Curious Absurdities, an online music label run by General Reef, who we featured on Dezeen Music Project last week. Curious Absurdities have got loads of other great artists on their books, so make sure you check them out.
The sun is shining and the temperature keeps on rising here at Clerkenwell Design Week where we are rushing about trying to cover the festival as well as looking after our Dezeen Watch Store pop-up shop. We need a track to help us chill out, and this ambient soundscape by General Reef should do the trick.
