Pete Namlook, astonishingly industrious ambient producer and boss of the FAX +49-69/450464 label, passed away earlier this week, aged 51.  

Long-running Irish electronic radio show The Chillage Idiots have assembled a comprehensive selection of material from the Namlook archives. Each of the twenty tracks featured is plucked from a different year in FAX’s history, with the presenters offering some helpful analysis of Namlook’s achievements in the gaps. Among the many tracks on display include collaborations with Move D, Uwe Schmidt (as Dr. Atmo and Atom Heart), Mixmaster Morris and Bill Laswell.

Considering how impossibly vast Namlook’s recorded legacy is – we’re talking 130+ solo and collaborative releases here – the mix serves both as a helpful primer and a heartfelt tribute. Click here to download or, alternatively, stream the show below.
