Last time he was credited as that was AST back in 1990.

Ross, would you kindly post the mix tracklist, or is it too early? Thanks!

I honestly have no idea what's on the CD other than the Apertures track.

Warm-up:
Recollection
The Empty Land
Drifting In and Out

Martin's mix:
The Final Inner Breath
Humanoid - Static Objective
Must be Mistaken
Without You It's Meaningless
Falling Upwards Aria
Dox2
Name not given, from the Oona charity compilation out in December
Night Scape

Mind Maps 2:
John Tejada and the Bee (FSOL Remix)
Remix of an EXM track
Humanoid track, acid stuff

Then there's a run of tracks as heard on the Touched show in June:
In Solitude We Are Least Alone, alt mix
Alina Kalancea / Yage collaboration
Crackly textures... water or fire? Really creepy voice sample "When the sun emerges from the darkness... your time will pass"
Melancholic synth pads with answerphone message, brief interlude
Synth arps, staggered beats, dark and very intense

Heogen - Shall We Go There (Yage Remix)... lovely melodic downtempo track
EBS5-esque spoken sample
FSOL + Dan Pemberton - Long Green Field
Sol A r Skies (Alt version)
IDM track, some tempo changes, mad breaks
Answerphone message of someone shouting 'oi' a lot

Another section from June's mix:
New SickOnes remix, slightly dnbish
Short ambient track... acoustic guitar and chanting
Old analogue rhythm machine, twinkly synth arpeggios, very '70s, early electronic krautrock in the Cluster vein

Twinkly synths with chunky lo-fi IDM beats
Answerphone environment with synths
Apertures - Missing Skies
Guitar and answerphone track

Some final tracks from June's mix:
Sinister snaky flute loop with completely mad glitched-up beats on top
Quiet, melancholic synth loops with answerphone messages
Field recording... not much happening


Announcement at the end:
Environments Seven: Rituals, the first in the Environment Seven Trilogy, a thirteen track album coming in the first quarter of 2022.
Earthbeat 2LP reissue.
FSOLDigital.com will be offline for maintenance soon.

Bonus 25 minute mix:
Serengeti
Synth track, intense arpeggios
Almost synthwave style analogue synth track
REALLY familiar track that I can't place. Might be a Calendar track? Dunno.
Slow glitchy piece.
Daniel Pemberton & FSOL - Behind the Eyes, from Coldcut compilation.



So yeah, it's got about half of June's mix on it, and the other half is unheard stuff. On first listen it's definitely my favourite of these Mind Maps/Controlled Vista mixes, really beautiful stuff.
Martin mentioned that Mind Maps 3 is on its way.

MOre remixes and outtakes - still don't see the point in these releases at all.

I really enjoyed that mix, and managed to pick up a CD, which I am pleased with after missing the first CD.

Maybe a chance for us to hear some unheard remakes and outtakes ;)

(ps. Logged in ahead of time but got taken away a minute before TX due to external personal business - looking forward to the CD release whatever that might contain)

bummer!!! I missed most of this one. I was only able to record 10 minutes into the 25 min. bonus mix I believe, right after the Future Sound of London voice, followed by 'moving further into the future'. The track playing right after sounds like a Synthi A piece. I have 15 minutes of the mix, sounds lush as usual.

I'm an "album only" fan, but I really loved the first Mind Maps. All the tracks were new: new FSOL tracks or FSOL remixes of songs by other artists, it is like a brand new album and I really like it.
If the second one is similar, I'll surely take it.
