Phreak Power Podcast Vol. 2: Shantih – “A Ninth Path”


Phreak Power Podcast Vol. 2: Shantih – “A Ninth Path”

An introspective mixtape featuring ambient, IDM, and experimental electronic music from some of my favorites, including Aphex Twin, Burial, Four Tet, Jon Hopkins, & more…

For the second Phreak Power Podcast, Shantih recorded a mixtape featuring personal favorites by some of his most beloved producers. Over the course of an hour, Shantih explores a variety of styles on the softer end of the electronic spectrum.

“A Ninth Path” follows a parabolic structure. It begins patiently with a handful of downtempo songs from the early ’00s before building towards its peak around the midpoint with Jon Hopkins’ high-energy hit, “Open Eye Signal.” The second half is a smooth descent into ambient transcendence, with selections by Apparat, Nils Frahm, and Tim Hecker.

Intended for home-listening, this mixtape is the perfect soundtrack for an intimate late night.

Phreak Power Podcast Vol. 2 was recorded live by Shantih at Phreak Power HQ.
