I didn't watch that BBC series Industry a while back, maybe I'll see if it's still on iplayer. But this guy Nathan Micay did the music for it? Anyway, he compiled an Ambient Focus mix for 6Music last year I think and it was repeated a few weeks back. Downloaded it and listening now. Some cracking stuff on this

I didn't watch it either, but I did listen to the Essential Mix:



A couple of tracks contained within:


Do you think you're better off alone? Remember that from Alice Deejay?

^ Thanks, D.Yes i read on some of the YouTube comments on Nathan Micay's Industry main theme that his Essential Mix is fab and worth checking out.I'll try and give that a listen.That Green Light/Fun Night mix is pretty good, i played your embed.Though the original still betters it for me.That Analogue Dear track is a piano version of that Alice Deejay You're Better Off Alone track from the 90s? I do remember the Alice Deejay tune but i couldn't pick up on that the piano version is a cover...have i understood correctly?

We were in London last night for another all nighter at Troxy.Wandering the streets in the city at 6am this morning trying to find our way back to Euston, surrounded by the corporate towers must have led me to look up Industry and Nathan Micay's Ambient Focus mix for 6Music when we finally got back to the midlands.

Kind of interested to watch Industry now, if it's still available.It's all about fresh out of Uni 20 somethings trying to forge a career in the City i think?? That world is a long way away from mine in a small market town but i can kind of put myself in the shoes of those kids trying to find their way in the City.

I followed your example as I also have the BBC Sounds app on my phone.

Yes you have understood. I noticed it when listening to the Essential Mix (on BBC Sounds) at the time and I checked the tracklisting to make sure it was what I thought it was. You can make out the chorus melody (gently) from about 1:15 on the embed above. And you can make out (half of) the original intro melody around 2:13.

Anyway my thoughts on the ambient mix? I listened to it twice. The second time I knew there were some tracks I wanted to skip over, e.g Taylor Swift and Kath Bloom. But I enjoyed other tracks, particularly the one below (first 8 minutes were in the mix). Incidentally someone has put the mix on Spotify, even though it has expired on BBC Sounds now.

I guess when this came out in 1997 it was for an an entirely non-existent episode of Twin Peaks. I'd like to hear this on a big soundsystem, e.g. Brixton Academy whilst waiting for a band to come on stage. Maybe early in the evening, entering the venue.

Stars Of The Lid - Music For Twin Peaks Episode #30 Parts 1 & 2


It put me in mind of some other Drone music like this:

I Break Horses - Heart To Know


And, before there was Spiritualized, there was Spacemen 3. I'm not sure if this is strictly drone music, but near enough.

Spacemen 3 – Big City (Everyone I Know Can Be Found Here) - Recurring

^ Ah OK thanks for confirming about that piano cover of the Alice Deejay tune.

Glad you found some stuff you liked in Micay's Ambient Mix.

Yes I like some of Stars Of The Lid's stuff. Think I'd seen on streaming that Twin Peaks one that wasn't actually in Twin Peaks. Will give the whole 21 minutes a spin. They have a track called Don't Bother They're Here which became a favourite of mine for listening to at sunrise after all nighters in summer 2021.

I have a 12" of that Spacemen 3 track but a slightly different version. Its the Revolution mix or something I think. Pretty much the same as that Recurring mix really . I was aware of Spacemen3 in the 80s because they were from my small hometown Rugby. I wasn't a massive fan of them back then but I think I used to see Jason Pierce around town in the mid 80s when I was a teenager but didn't know he was back then although I was aware of Spacemen3. There was a moody looking dude in shades around town at night in ooh...1984-85 who I'm now convinced was Jason Pierce.Think he used to drive a Volkswagon Beetle .Sonic Boom did a DJ set in Rugby a few years back but alas I missed it.

Talk Talk- Spirit Of Eden album from 1988. I think slow burner masterpiece is the default opinion of this one and its hard to argue with that.

Associates on TOTP in 1982.Isn't the groovy chick on the piano Martha Ladly , later to be the girlfriend or wife of Peter Saville? And the painter of the image for the Factus 8 sleeve? Or am i getting her mixed up with someone else? Either way the lady is very, very lovely in this clip Smile Oh and great coat, Billy (RIP)

I saw them live once at This.
That DVD suggests that Nick Cave and Steve Mason only did one song each, but they did more. I think it went on til 1am or something at Brixton Academy.
A friend I was with warned me that Spiritualized can "go on a bit" live. And he wasn't wrong. They can be simultaneously brilliant and boring in the same song. Had a habit of dragging things out too long so that you start thinking: "move it along now please!". But I was still glad to have caught them live.

Yeah I'm kind of thinking it'll be 50% brilliant and 50% not so brilliant. Still, be good to finally catch them live like you said.

Really enjoyed the show tonight. A lot of the big loud guitar ones dominated the night. On record I've always been more of a fan of the mellower numbers but the big loud songs were fabulous tonight. They do a lot of that "improvised, cacophonous wall of sound" to close out songs, don't they! The 3 girls on the gospel backing vocals were brilliant, kind of carried the show.. Jason was bloody great too. They played for 2 hours. Really glad I've now seen them live

If you ever want to annoy your neighbours (because they really deserve it), then these two seem to do the trick. Laptop speakers don't do them justice. Crank up the bass!

Midfield General: Bass Mechanic (NO fans should recognise something here)

^ I gave those two you posted a spin, D.Yeah i think that Bass Mechanic one was posted before , possibly by your goodself sir, in a thread about tracks NO sampled.Yeah, spotted the NO sample and quite a banger of a beat.I did though prefer the Disco Sirens one, liked the funky bass on that one.

On a slightly more chilled vibe, i heard this in Chivalry on Channel 4 the other night.It played in a scene at the start of the final episode and i thought, i recognise that tune, Shazamed it and it's For You by Khadja Bonet.Chivalry was ok, nowt amazing but i only really watched the series because i'm a quite a fan of Sarah Solemani and have been since years ago when she was in Him & Her on BBC2 (or was it BBC3?) with Russell Tovey.Comedy about a young couple living in a bedsit.
