Firmly rooted in minimalism and modesty, Field Records publishes versatile electronic music from high-principled artists, bridging the foggy and experimental sounds to icy techno.
With a heavy sense of atmosphere and futuristic ideas, Field Records has been specializing since its inception in mini-compilations. These have been released since its launch in 2008 by collecting work from a rotating cast of artists. By trying to blur tracks and muddy the waters they offer a diverse magical journey through modern-day electronic sounds.
From sombre musical landscapes made from lingering drones to more uplifting, light-emitting tracks, their chatter reflects the cyclical nature of human experience. Not an unprecedented leap, but a continuous voyage along the gyre.

Atmospheric and emotional.
Some insight on the mix you recorded ?
This mix is an excerpt from our collaborative performance at Organik festival in Huning, Taiwan in April 2018. Playing some of our favourite pieces in a mountainous area located alongside the beach was a unique experience. I would like to thank Sébastien for his impeccable taste and contribution, and the Smoke Machine crew for making this happen. We will not forget it.
