This is a very nice V/A collection from Ultimae (a la D.J. Christian Samsara): ambient, mid-range techno/electronica & downtempo, dub-soaked beats! For me, personally, I get lost in the rhythms & tempos – listening via ear-buds especially when working out or running.

It balances the fine line of dreaminess & intentionally focused & engaging electronica; capturing the listening side of my brain so that the push-ups, pull-ups, crunches & stretching become easier (given that my brain is now otherwise occupied!)

I’m not posting this as audio — but I’ve remixed the tracks from slowest-to-fastest (see bottom of this page).

Thanks very much for another great V/A release, Ultimae!
Released last month (July).

Ultimae proudly presents “ISOLATED”, a various artists compilation selected by Danish DJ Christian Samsara with a definite ambient and cinematic downtempo spirit.

The 10 track story presents exquisite tracks by Christian Samsara, Martin Nonstatic, AES Dana, Erot, Lauge, Claudio PRC, Sonmi451, Miktek and newcomer to our realm, ASC.

It reveals remarkable nuance and depth of field, fuses intricate rhythmic patterns and atmospheric elements with evocative melodies conveying a gentle mesmerizing power. A feeling of wandering and softened yearning fills the air; isolation, according to Christian Samsara, heightens our senses and brings up a deeper resonance with music and nature.
