    Craig Lea - System of a Solar [OST / Ambient Techno]

    Whilst I'm not usually one for spamming boards that I frequent with new mixes, I figured that this might actually be suitable for the good folks of RPS, as opposed to sticking up my latest nose bleed Techno stuff.

    It's a bit of a mish mash of sci-fi and sci-fi-esque soundtracks, interspersed with some Ambient(ish) Techno.

    Woah, really liking this, thanks for posting the mix. Very well put together and you have great taste. I've downloaded to listen to properly later.

    Not listened to the end yet, but wait a minute...Toto? THAT Toto? The 'Africa' Toto?

    Take it you've appropriated your forum name from DJ Surgeon? LOVE his stuff.

    I prefer the ambienty, atmospheric parts more than the more dance-musicy parts, but that's just me.
    Bits of it remind me of Exploration Suite from Rettic's "sounds for flying" mix.

    I found myself at the other end, while I really love stuff like the Clint Mansell Moon soundtrack and the Eno Apollo, that sort of thing is my daily background soundtrack, when I got to that bloody tremendous Speedy J track my ear was then really wanting more in the same vein and the Mansell took me in the opposite direction. But then I do love a bit of techno.

    The Gustavo Santolalla opening track is gorgeous. Not someone I'd heard of, will look out for more.

    Cheers for that link Weasel, that looks right up my street. I'll give that a whirl this afternoon.

    Cheers fella, and thanks for favouriting my mix on Sound Cloud Johnny, I really appreciate it :)

    Normally when I construct a tracklist I'll program the mix so that it builds in intensity towards the end.
    I couldn't quite see that working for this, as you'd end up with most of the sound track stuff at the beginning and the Techno at the end.
    So instead I thought I'd try and scatter the Techno through out to keep it more interesting.
    Which means it swings back and forth quite a bit.

    That Santaolalla track is from 21 Grams.
    I really like this from it too:

    Yep, that Toto. Hehe.
    I love Lynch's version of Dune, and those two tracks in particular.

    Spot on with the Surgeon reference.
    Communications was the first Techno album that I ever bought back in '96, and I've never looked back since.

    Speedy J's early work is just phenomenal.
    Ginger, G Spot and !ive are great examples of how to make beautiful Techno albums.
    I love his insane stuff as well, although I'm finding most of his output since the Minimal explosion to be pretty boring.
    I think this is pretty much my number one track of all time:

    But thanks for the kind comments, really glad you liked it :D
