Quiet Space — #151 — Anthéne

I use the word favourite a lot as there is a lot of music I love and a lot of composers I reckon are fantastic. Without a doubt, anthéne (the solo project of bradley sean alexander deschamps, who also is the curator of polar seas recordings) is one of the most exciting ambient artists to have burst on the scene over the last 5 years. Not only is he prolific, but his sounds are on point everytime. His latest release Collide has just come out on Home Normal. Our focus is on this wonderfully blissed out minimal release, but woven throughout a special mix of his work. Simply magic.
