This morning, let’s go for a walk outside. We’re joined by Mike Slott who made us an honor to accept our invitation.
Being one of the founders of LuckyMe, the legendary record label which released, among other great artists, the first Hudson Mohawke record. Mike released last year Vignettes, a great inner cinematic experience.
Open the door, put your headphones on, and press play. No need to travel to the other side of the planet. Let’s go.

Mike Slott’s selection

Sam Gendel - Sustain

Mike Slott: I live around the corner from a small park called Tierra de la Culebra and this is where Matthew David of Leaving Records used to host his brilliant ‘Listen to Music Outside in the Daylight Under a Tree’ park jams (before covid) on Saturday afternoons.

Sam’s track sums up that LA weekend early afternoon feeling for me - sunny, synthy, live. It was also released on Leaving Records so I guess it’s no coincidence.

Im looking forward to those events again, sitting outside amongst friends, neighbors and musicians hearing lots of great new experimental music.

Huerco S - A Sea of Love

Mike Slott: I like to meditate in the mornings when I wake up or to meditate on something I’ve read.

I put together a ‘mike meditation’ playlist of music that for me helps magnify what I’m reading or meditating on. I chose this Huerco S track because I listen to it a lot and to me it sound different every time I hear it. Or I should say I hear different aspects of it every time, it feels like it’s alive. A beautiful piece.

Luke Slott - The Keeper of Secrets

Mike Slott: I had to include a track from my brother Luke’s piano album. He released two solo piano volumes a few years back and for me they are a perfect compliment to any Sunday morning.

Truly you could pick any of the tracks across the two albums. They transport me back to when we were younger and I would hearing him composing these songs note by note. Timeless music for a Sunday. Highly recommend checking out both solo piano albums.

MailTape’s selection

Mike Slott - Keep Me Here

ImaCrea: Mike Slott’s latest album, Vignettes, was released in March 2020. A month we all remember here in France as the moment when COVID-19 entered our life.

I remember very vividly walking in deserted streets while we were under lockdown and listening to this track. It got me into a meditative state every walks, helping me soften my spirit as times were full of uncertainty.

A perfect album to go for a walk with a camera and let oneself drift.

LEYA - Wave

ImaCrea: Let’s keep walking. There’s a sun ray coming from a crack into an abandoned building. Attracted by the mysterious light, you try to find a way to enter. Inside, a majestic chandelier hangs. An ethereal voice coming from nowhere, you look at the ceiling. Dust flying in the air reflects light…

Leon Vynehall - Ecce! Ego!

ImaCrea: Slowly back to reality, you realize the building was an old factory. Big machines covered with rust, mechanical engines stopped in time, and meters of cables on the floor.

Master of textures and layers, Leon Vynehall keeps pushing the borders of electronic music. He released lastly a new album “Rare Forever”. A great masterpiece not to miss.

PDP III - Calendar of Days

ImaCrea: Still walking with us? Here’s another one I enjoy listening to on a Sunday when I go for a walk to immerse my eyes in the beauty of everyday life.

This deeply immersive ambient track was released by the great people at Shelter Press. PDP III is the reunion of Britton Powell, Lucy Railton, and Brian Leeds (Huerco S). Yes…

That’s it for this morning. Don’t hesitate to share with us how your walk was in our comment section :). As always, thank you so much for being with us. Much love to Mike Slott for his Sunday selections and to Thibault Daumain for this vivid portrait!
