RIP Pete Namlook

Sad news: ... label-fax/

Namlook's music has been a great inspiration for the last 20 years... Just last night I needed some good music to work to and cued up his Ambient Cookbook... wonderful stuff... he'll be missed...

How come?! His SHADO 1 and 2 are among my favourites...
Tonight I will listen to these masterpieces together with my close friend, Johnnie Walker Red Label.
I hope he's flying in some nice flying saucer high above us and has fun of his life.

Yeah, that's a real bummer, I love his From Within stuff with Hawtin.

The original Psychonavigation was my formal introduction to ambient music. It has remained one of my all-time favorite albums, and over time has proven to be one of my biggest influences as well.

What an amazing and prolific composer, and a master collaborator to boot. We've truly lost one of the greats.

Thanks for all the music Pete. R.I.P.
