Chillits DJ sets online

 Music Images Chillits04Chillits is an ambient music outdoor festival that takes place every fall in Northern California. It's sort of a scaled-down version of the UK's Big Chill. All of the DJ sets from Chillits 2004 are now online for our, er, blistening pleasure. The mixes by my musical mentors, San Francisco's Nick Philip and DF Tram, are just stunning. And yes, the Brian Behlendorf who also spun a really beautiful set is in fact the co-inventor of Apache. I have Brian to thank for turning me on to post-Eno ambient when we both interned at Wired in 1993. What DF Tram says about his own set pretty much applies across the Chillits board: this music is "best enjoyed horizontally." Link
