SEQUENCE 4 is the fourth instalment of the much acclaimed (not 100% about that word!) Sequence series. Continuing the series started almost a year ago, SEQUENCE 4 showcases some of the finest artists from around the world, working in the genres of ambient, drone, minimal, electronic and modern classical. The compilation remains free and is curated from just over 130 artist submissions and like it’s predecessors, weighs in at 42 tracks.
We received just over 135 track submissions this time around, making the final selection process really hard!
Thanks to all the artists involved, and to you for listening - we hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoy putting them together. Please help support the artists by sharing sequence4.
