various: john beltran presents music for machines

Celebrated ambient artist John Beltran jointly releases not one but two vinyl compilations on Delsin Records in association with his own Dado label. The compilations, named Music for Machines Part 1 and Part 2, will take the form of two vinyl LPs released apart, with both releases compiled together onto one CD. Michigan-born producer Beltran, of course, has released countless legendary EPs and LPs on labels like Peacefrog, Carl Craig's Retroactive and Belgium's R&S. His music has been licensed to high-profile hbo tv series and a number of films, and pulls together elements of jazz, world music, organic soundscapes, and electronic textures into compelling listening experiences. Most recently, this came in the form of his Amazing Things album in 2013, while his career-spanning Ambient Selections from 2011 is still a vital listen. Part 1 of the compilation pulls together new and exclusive tracks from the likes of Winter Flags, Blair French, David Elpezs and John himself, while part two focuses on the likes of Natalie Beridze, Kirk Degiorgio and Vincent Volt. Part 1 opens up with the found sound lushness of "Winterfall Winds" before naturally unfolding through Reinehr's wintry harmonics and the crowning glory of Beltran's own titular track, which is a moving bit of textured modern classical music that soothes your mind, body and soul. As for Part 2, it is riddled with sumptuous sonic delights, like Greg Chin's icy and alpine "Dashboard Angels" and Mick Chillage's beautifully suspended "Only in My Dreams." Vincent Volt keeps things beautifully beachy with his "Subway Arp" and A2B2C2's "Stereometry" is a suitably somber affair that closes the compilation down in style. Other artists include: Sons Of Melancholia, Dennis Clifford, Robert Perry, Merrin Karras, and Gacha Bakradze.
