It has been another long winter here on the east coast of the United States, and the spring is slowly tip-toeing on the frozen landscape, as if afraid to show its face amid neglected trees. But I know that soon enough the padded jackets will be put away into the closets, and the sun will […]

In advance of the 2015 Communikey Festival — which takes place April 16-19 month in Boulder, CO — Experimental Housewife was tapped to record a Headphone Commute mix showcasing the more ambient-leaning portion of the festival programming. This year’s edition of the Communikey Festival is set to be the organization’s last as they prepare to […]

“the explanation for the track list is actually quite easy… especially the air liquide tune and also scan x are both super old tracks that followed me around since i was a kid… they never lost their fascination and have the same effect after all the years that they had… and for the strangest reason […]

If, like me, you initially snickered at the title of this mix, in hopes that it conveyed a large gaseous emission, fear not for your own immaturity (as my own), for in fact, in German, Ueberfahrt means passage, crossing, and transit — words we are too familiar when applying music to our lives, and lives to our […]

I DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE CALLED, THE SPACES BETWEEN SECONDS, BUT I THINK OF YOU ALWAYS IN THOSE INTERVALS Today I’m proud to present you a mix by Ian Hazeldine, producing under the moniker Antonymes, whose work has appeared numerous times on Headphone Commute, most notably his last two fantastic albums, which have both been […]

Peter Van Cooten and I have exchanged music recommendations since the birth of Headphone Commute. In fact, there are many times that I feel like I’m speaking to him as opposed to my anonymous audience. Through these words, Peter and I have been able to discover and indeed influence each other’s music tastes throughout the […]

Apparently another annual tradition for Headphone Commute is to begin a new year with a mix from Saimon Saimonse, who has been a consistent selector of heart warming tunes for the times when we need it most. This is especially a hard time for me, as I mourn the passing of my dear friend and partner […]

And, as it has been an annual tradition for Headphone Commute for the last four years, we round off this year with a very special vinyl-only mix by Mike Jedlicka of Optic Echo, incorporating his favorite selections of the year. This is indeed a very special last-minute treat, before we unleash upon you our end of the […]

Eilean Rec. is an independent French label, run by Mathias Van Eecloo (of Monolyth & Cobalt) releasing ambient, electro-acoustic, experimental music, and everything in between. All physical releases are limited to about 50 to 200 copies, and are handmade with additional help in design from Rémi Verdier. Conceptually, the entire project is based around a […]

So we’re already in December, and after 24 mixes of 2014 we’ve got exactly two more (including this one), plus a round-off with Best Vinyl of 2014 courtesy of Optic Echo Presents [like we’ve done for two years now]. But before we bid this year adieu, we’ve got a gorgeous mix from one of our […]

On today’s podcast I am honored to host a mix from Marcus Fjellström, a Swedish composer (now based in Berlin) whom I’ve been following since his 2010 release Schattenspieler on Miasamah. Fjellström creates a very unique, haunting and cinematic sound, that somehow captures the all encompassing mysteries of the universe through a self-centered lens of a very human […]

With the Daylight Savings Time I now wake up into complete darkness. My room in pitch black and my alarm blinking 6:00, I drag myself towards a fresh cup of coffee and the studio. As the caffeine slowly spreads throughout my system, light begins to pour into my room, and music fills the emptiness left briefly […]

Has it been two weeks already? We’re back with another hour-long program to bring you more tunes! Today’s mix is brought to you by Alastair Kelly, who’s been a fan and a follower for some time now. It’s like a very special feedback loop between us – I put out the these words into the […]

[editor’s note: for the description of this mix, we’re diving directly into words from Ryan Keane, the founder of Lost Tribe Sound label] It has been an honor to work with some amazing musicians and artists since LTS started in 2010 including our main roster consisting of William Ryan Fritch, Graveyard Tapes, Part Timer, Benoit […]

And just like that, new things begin. This morning is another day, sleepily yawning into the autumn sky. It’s all about cycles. It’s all about change. “Everything changes,” a car salesman said to me when I asked about the improvements over the last year’s model during my test drive. I’m sure he knew how right […]

Once again I am honored to host a mix from Richard Chartier, who has appeared on this program back in January of 2012, with A Wintery Mix. This time around, Chartier offers a mix under his Pinkcourtesyphone moniker, a DJ name he’s used in mid 90s, and an alias which he has currently resurrected for his solo releases. […]

For today’s program I’ve invited Orla Wren, an artist from North England releasing music on Flau, Facture, Home Normal, and most recently Oak Editions, to share with you his favorite pieces, which happen to be from film. It’s a beautiful chronicle, with its own special plot and emotional journey: For this mix I collected many […]

It seems that I am always excited about the latest mix in our podcast series. And yet today’s entry is another installment which I am honored to host. Dennis Huddleston, producing under the moniker 36 (pronounced ‘three-six’) prepares a gorgeous journey across his favorite pieces taking us to that ‘other place‘. Besides a few familiar […]

Transitions… that space in between. We often rush from one place to another, moving in our lives from point A to B, becoming this or that, while missing out on all of those transitions… Yet these may hold the essence of all the delicate moments in your life. From weeks between two jobs, to flights between […]
