Edition 41 - Ben Eshmade : This mix was inspired by a late night viewing of Ferris Bueller's Day Off. I found the scene in which the hero visits the Chicago museum really touching, and Dream Academy's cover of The Smiths really deserves to be heard more. So this was the springboard for a mix which allowed me to include Flash Gordon (Queen), Leonard Cohen and the latest 80s influenced music from Wagon Christ and Deerhunter amongst many more.

  1. Dream Academy - Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want (Instrumental)
  2. Deerhunter - Earthquake
  3. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross - Hand Covers Bruise
  4. Moritz Von Oswalk - Welt Am Draht
  5. Queen - In The Space Capsule (The Love Theme)
  6. Hong Kong In The 60s - Les Petits Chasseurs De Son
  7. Julianna Barwick - The Magic Place
  8. Transept - The Demands Of Levitating Heavy Stones
  9. Wagon Christ - Toomorrow
  10. Tied & Tickled Trio - Violent Collaborations Pt. 1
  11. Function - Unshaken (Positively Implacable)
  12. Chris Schlarb - I Can Live Forever If I Slowly Die
  13. Nils Frahm & Anne Müller - Because This Must Be / Augmentation
  14. Leonard Cohen - Tower of Song
