I needed help falling asleep, so I signed up for Headspace.
They have an incredible collection of sleep music, but I wanted something a little more… metal.
No drums, no shrieks, no guitars, no melody - just something a little darker.
It needed to be a mix, with no interupptions.
Down the rabbit hole of “dark ambient” I went, looking for a particular style, feel, and vibe.
Since then I’ve dug through hundreds of releases on Bandcamp, and put together some mixes over almost two years. They help me fall asleep, maybe they’ll help you, too.
This is a weekly newsletter exploring the world of dark ambient, drone, and atmospheric music as it aids to sleep during these tragic times.
Follow along as I make more mixes, start live-streaming some evenings, and together we’ll get some much needed rest.
ALSO: In late 2021 I released ‘DECEMBER,’ under the name HUNTERTHEN. After a year and a half of figuring out what I like and don’t like, I sort of landed with this release, and hope to continue making more music like this in the future.
