The Sound Diary - Chapter 1 (2023)

We've made it! It's Friday, time for us to look forward to the upcoming weekend. Just a few more hours, hold on tight: we can do this. We still have to work a few hours, but we can manage those hours. Just hold on, we will get there. And to accompany us, I've found this mix by Nourey, on Soundcloud, and as I'm not familiar with the artist, there's not much to say right now. The only thing I can say, is that you are going to be surprised on how cool and mellow this mix is. Think of ATTLAS, but not ATTLAS, Nourey instead. But it gives me a lot of vibes I appreciate from artists such as ATTLAS. Hope that makes sense?

We are diving head first into the Sound Diary, volume 1. This indicates that there are more coming, and after reading this review and listening to this mix, you are eager to hear more. I love myself a bit of relaxing and down-to-Earth music. Music so calm, your heartbeat automatically drops by 10 bpm. And Nourey's mix is filled with so much emotional music. She takes you on a journey, a journey I really look forward to.

I don't know who shared this mix, but I'm thankful that they did. I have played this mix on a continuous loop since I woke up this morning. And it's going to take me into the weekend, that's for sure. The music is so mellow, so relaxed, and most of all: emotional. The sound takes you on a journey, which could be different for each individual listening. You start delving deep into your soul, uncover some hidden secrets, or you could just be on cloud 9, or it might just make you forget everything and everyone for a split second. To me, this mix has done it all.

Want to know which tracks are in this mix? Well, here's the list:

  1. Mantom - Revelation

  2. Christian Loffler - Refu

  3. Olafur Arnalds - Oldurot (Tontario Remix)

  4. Nils Hoffman - Drift (Ben Bohmer Remix)

  5. Nils Hoffman feat Julie Church - 9 Days

  6. Andre Lodemann - Going To The Core (Dave DK Remix)

  7. Natscha Polke - Neverland (Aparde Remix)

  8. Lee Burridge & Lost Desert feat Junior - Mibale

  9. Esteble - Feathers

  10. Fejka - Bloom

  11. Jacob Groenig - Ladok

  12. Howling - Blind (Rampa Remix)

  13. Quatri - How Far Can You Go (Ryan Davis Remix)

  14. Aparde - Unfamiliar

She took me on a journey through this wonderful world, and I'm glad I joined the Sound Diary journey. This mix contains the finest of the finest records money could buy. And yes, it is the completely opposite of the genres I normally listen to, but I really enjoy a bit of chill time.

I went into this mix, not knowing anything about Nourey or the songs in this mix, but I've come out of this, with a huge smile on my face, and feeling so relieved. So calm. Would I listen to this at a rave? Probably not, as it's a bit too mellow. Maybe for an hour or two, but at a rave I need something to keep me going. If I were to hear this 8 hours in a row, I might start floating in the air!

All jokes aside, this is a fantastic mix. Filled with emotions, or songs that generate emotions. This has been an hour of pure pleasure for both my ears, heart, mind, and soul. Nourey's mix is fantastic, and she has gained a new follower.

Especially when 'Refu' started playing, I was sold. I was lost in the music, and stared at my monitor for a good 10 minute, bewildered, lost in the music.

If you need something smooth, this is certainly it! This is a must-listen to set. This will tingle your senses!
