Slumber Sessions Mix for i-D Magazine

I made a very special mix for i-D magazine recently. Took me a few days to put together. The brief was to have a mix entirely dedicated to the sea, music influenced by and written about the sea.

I call it Music For Ocean Explorers though it features in their ‘Slumber Sessions’ series of mixes.

This 62 minute mix includes 33 tracks, excerpts from some of my favourite nautically themed books and some sea themed film fragments too.

Here it is on i-D including a few words from them.
