There is a particular quality about autumn, its beginnings. As days grow a little shorter but there is still a hint of warmth, or at least an absence of real cold. We have gone beyond wild picnics and summer jaunts. There is something of a new beginning taking place, work or study comes to the fore and personally I have the urge to slip into particular bars, run through certain sorts of music and spend evenings in a way that is …
But there is also the sky and the neighbourhood just as the sun sets, strange colourations of things. Musical in its own right. You can find an entertaining or intriguing texture almost anywhere.

I really like my moody evenings and skies as you might have guessed. I tend to like certain sorts of music that goes with all such. Given my age it might be a little odd for people – I love my chillstep, deep dubstep but then I also love my older balearic chill, deep house and the like.
Mentioned here are a couple of artists that I really have some time for – Soular Order, a Manchester based producer and also Christian Hornbostel. The two are very different but still they have the capacity to add to particular moments and moods. You can find some of the photos from our group on Sellfy –
There is nothing quite like the right music fitting how mood and emotion is running, in the right place – perhaps a suitably aged and distressed area at the back of a personable pub.

As you may have guessed I have something of an eclectic taste in music. Particular forms of music fit with various of my moods – and no I am not just endlessly moody! I do, however, run through a whole gamut of feelings in the average day and so sucha typical day can be filled variously with anything from deep, soulful and chilled house
– I also have a love of old soul from early 60s days through to new soul – nusoul, neo soul – by way of 80s and 90s sounds
– on into moody trip hop – I retain a real love of all sorts of artists from Portishead to London Grammar by way of Bonobo and the list would go on endlessly
– and then to drum and bass, which would include the full range of old jungle, raggaed up or not, and including liquid, atmospheric and intelligent – so my tastes go from Congo Natty to Bukem, from Marcus Visionary to Calibre

As you will know I have quite a liking for the chilled end of things – always gravitating towards the chillout room in any party. I have always had as well a real love of deep house – admittedly that love is generally for the older originators – St Germain (Ludovic Navarre), Ian Pooley, Mateo and Matos, Kevin Yost. I so look back to days in parties involving DIY, Inland Knights and others.
The mixes you can find here hopefully give you a sense of that mmmm! that is part of the whole scene and the whole history of that area of music.
Whenever I went to parties I always used to gravitate towards the chillout room. I would, of course, make my tour of what was going on, but there was always a fascination with the chill room. I have an abiding love of the gentler end of things – I do still love my big bouncy and darker, harder end of things, but still. Thus, I suppose it was inevitable that I would end up roaming around that reasonably recent end of music called chillstep. Unfortunately there is no proper wiki for it. You never know I may end up doing something myself. But still …
Phaeleh – I still really enjoy my 2 step and so, another inevitability – there are regular hints of 2 step within his stuff, an occasional flavour of intelligent dnb and more.
Other serious artists within the field include The Glitch Mob, Modestep, Submotion Orchestra, Blackmill, Synthetic Epiphany, ID3, Fracx, Ghosts of Paraguay and more …
Chillstep came about as dubstep was modified in its move forwards by those bringing other sensibilities. People such as Phaeleh return to ideas of 2 step beats. Dubstep, itself, was part of a move on from the older 2 step garage musical genre. In some cases full on chill and ambient flavours are present. In other cases there is very much of a dub feel and so you see such things as psydub and cyberdub included. There is a lot of vocal content, at time with almost an indie, nusoul and pop vibe running through.
Other favourites of mine are Submotion Orchestra from Leeds, Ghosts of Paraguay, Synthetic Epiphany, Liquid Stranger and more. The hints of intelligent dnb, triphop, electrodub, full on chill, orchestral notes, dub itself, – these are all qualities that draw me in.
