The Tripping Forecast – Longwave

Discovered this gem on Soundcloud, it’s a work of gentle genius.

They say ‘It’s 1989 and you’ve taken a pill in a club; it gets too much & you wander into the chill out room & the DJ is playing a super mellow set of Radio 4 classics.

Longwave is mostly Rob Manuel. With thanks to David Ault & Chris Barker.’

Rob has been working on some, check notes ‘blinding visuals’ to pair with the mix, here’s a taster. Can’t wait to see the full length edition…

And here it is…
