The past few days I’ve been listening to Arp‘s new album The Soft Wave and think it’s a great little record. It’s quiet and contemplative, creating a pretty relaxing ambiance that’s great if you need to read all of Great Expectations in a weekend like I had to this weekend!

This little remix is a lot more upbeat than most of The Soft Wave but makes you wish there was a little more sun in your life as the days are getting shorter and shorter.

♫ Arp – The Past (Studio Remix)

The Soft Wave is out now and the Pastoral Symphony 12″ will be released Nov 15th on Smalltown Supersound.
