Latvian electronica mix

Hello, I'm back again, back on-line, so let's get down to the blogging business.

Meanwhile, I've done a couple of mixes that I would like to share. First one is kind of special, because contains music which is made by producers from Latvia (or at least related in some way), and unlike my usual sets this one contains more listening music, e.g. ambient, IDM, click-hop etc. I couldn't squeeze all the good music in an hour, but anyway it is my attempt to give an overview of Latvian electronica. This mix was specially recorded and played at Jaffa Magazine's presentation party at LX5 culture centre in Luxemburg.

You can get this mix either from Zshare or from LX5's website.

Thank you for this latvian mix.

I love eletronica, ambient, IDM and bip bip music. Furthermore, I've been to Latvia a few years ago (beautiful country) and didn't have the time to discover latvian music. Now thanks to you, I can watch my pictures in music.
