Nils Frahm adopts his delicate style of modern classical composition to the latest Late Night Tales compilation. Starting with the solo piano piece 4:33 we are slowly absorbed into his mixture of dimmed-light ambience and after-hours exuberance. Choice cuts from Four Tet, the smoke-heavy drum beat from his 0181 excerpt giving nod to the trip-hop days of Massive Attack and Tricky sitting perfectly next to more avant pieces such as The Baka Forest People Of South-East Cameroon's water-logged piece Liquindi 2. Meanwhile Bleep favourites such as Rhythm & Sounds' Mango Drive slowly rolls through the middle of the mixture next to the ghostly shuffle of Miles Davis's Generique. The tracklist flows seamlessly in the vein of all the great chilled DJ mixes, taking you on a journey of early morning sounds where things start to blur at the edges and subtle psychedelia stretches through the DNA of everything that emerges, from Boards Of Canada's 'In A Beautiful Place..' to Nina Simone's achingly beautiful 'Who Knows Where The Time Goes' all in all this is a superb selection that shows Nils Frahm not only has an ear for producing entrancing atmospheric music, but his skills as a selector of after hours home listening are second to none, here's to hoping he invites us around for dinner soon.
