I usually enjoy the mixes on Fluid Radio so Danny Norbury’s new mix was almost anticipated. A wonderful low-key blend of quiet melodies and sounds and vocals, this is a delicious album-length (41 minutes) outing.

I often sing the praises of Fluid Radio – an eclectic internet radio station from Experimedia in the UK with a couple of varied channels. Usually I listen to their mixes more than the radio stream – it’s cool having artists I recognise bringing some of their favourite tracks, whether their own or those of others, together in a honed set.
Something I’ve been listening to lately is the Taster – a mix of tracks from forthcoming projects on Fluid Audio. Best, I think, for listening to with the lights low, perhaps only with the light from your screen.
There are loads of streaming mixes available on the internet. Currently I’m listening to Jimmy Behan’s Vol. 3 mix on Fluid Radio – a great range of edgy and ambient, very cool to listen to while working. Jimmy has been around the electronic music scene for a while with some cool original releases, including “In the Sudden Distance” on the Zymogen netlabel.
