Behind The Sky is proud to present their 16th release, a gorgeous overview of contemporary downtempo electronic music, compiled by label DJ and co-collaborator extraordinaire DJ Maggie. The global ambient music scene and small chillout rooms are the spaces that have fed and informed their musical taste since the early 90’s. Paying homage to the deep waters and magical moments of the lesser and the unknown, this compilation is a love song to the community and sound that has inspired everything they do.
Over 14 tracks and 7 countries, the artists on Matters of the Heart represent a cross-section of some of the most amazing, innovative and highly complex electronic music that is being released internationally. From the drum n bass-inspired minimalism of Russian producer Bop, the masterful sonic manipulation of American producer KiloWatts, the organic and genre-defying soul of UK producer Seb Taylor aka Hibernation, to the austere and chilling perfection of Ocoeur’s ambient impressionism, this compilation represents a journey through emotion, tenderness, feeling and connection.
