It's a well known fact that the best things in life come in two parts. Take this week's Modcast for example, put together by the one and only Kim Moyes (aka KIM/Kim from the Presets) who has provided us with a whopping two week's work of musical ear candy. This first installment, the ambient 'Prog cast' is an ode to synthesisers, prog and all things chill. Stay tuned in coming weeks for the 'Clubby' mix.
Kim: "I'm so glad I've finally been given an opportunity to make a mix based around ambient, synth-prog and new age music.
I've always loved this sort of music, from classic sci-fi soundtracks, formative come-downs and the days of my old band "Prop." These sorts of sounds have played a special part in my life.
For this mix I have rediscovered some classic ambient and New Age sounds as well as some great recent stuff from the likes of Nils Frahm, Black To Comm and Alva Noto.
Also included are some demos from a project I'm currently working on with Myles Heskett and Chris Ross. It's early days yet so we don't really have a name or any track titles but if you like what you hear keep your ear out later in the year for more from us three.
Relax and enjoy.
