Most of you will be familiar with Leandro Fresco’s ambient masterpiece, Buenos Amigos, the star on (what I consider) the best Kompakt Pop Ambient release to date. Since then, Leandro’s been pretty quiet and has only released one album, ‘Luz Sin Calor‘, but still remains a legend in my eyes for the effect that specific track had on me, in helping me fall in love with the Pop Ambient series. Nine years on, I still revisit Buenos Amigos on a regular basis.
Leandro’s mix reflects on a similar style to his productions, with washing, melodic ambient including the legendary Ulf Lohmann, Arovane, Isan and the stunning ‘Pass Into Silence’ by Iceblink.
Wrap-up, get the big headphones out and bring in the New Year with Leandro’s warm textures.
“This is my catalogue of invisible music,

7. Isan – Cutlery Favours
I got this CD during a short period when I lived in Barcelona, it reminds me of the hot summer.

One of my fav pieces of Pommerenck and a very good friend of mine

10. Cerati/Melero – Alborada
A dark, intelligent, ambient piece, lost like an interlude in “Colores Santos” album

A great composer, his music is always brilliant!
14. Pantha Du Prince – Im Bann
My fav track from the ‘Black Noise’ CD. I love the balance between the guitar and the other sounds.
15. Marsen Jules – Couer Saignant
I love Marsen Jules’ music, it’s like pressing the pause button, something very difficult to achieve.
16. Ulf Lohmann – 11.
11 is a very special number for me, in a lot of senses, spiritual and magically.
17. DD & Leandro Fresco – Thank You + Capsula.
This is a home made mix that i did with two tracks, using the end of DD’s Led Zeppelin cover “Thank You’ and “Capsula’, a track which is featured on my first album.
18. Bjork – All Is Full Of Love
A classic song from Bjork. I like this version, of course, without drum programming and featuring rhythmics loops.
