This is my first attempt at an "Ambient" set and I use that term very loosly since this set has various types of music which is not ambient. Yet the overall theme is what I would concider a chill out experience.
In the 80s there was this particular sound which was never pigeon holed, to me its just "that 80s sound". This sound consists of synthisized drums, tons of long reverb tails, saxiphones, and this very particular guitar sound... a way of playing the guitar with reverb. The tracks in this set have one or more of those above mentioned things which is what ties this all together.
This kind of music is the sonic equivalent to my memories in Wildwood NJ when I was a kid. Often a night would be ruined by heavy rain storms yet I'd end up getting to the boardwalk anyway with a rain coat. This music feels like those times. Its also the sort of music that I imagine that if I had been my age back in the 80s and had a nice car, I would be cruising around listening to this... which is what I'm doing now anyway only unfortunatly its no longer the 80s.
