Athens-based Sound In Silence has carved out a nice little niche for itself as a boutique label specializing in small runs from an eclectic assortment of artists that includes Bvdub, The Declining Winter, Endless Melancholy, The Green Kingdom, and many more.

Accompanying the playlist is the latest episode of my“Playlist Breakdown” podcast, in which I spotlight one of the playlist’s songs and why it’s so special, interesting, and/or meaningful. In this episode, I discuss “Haze,” a beautifully chaotic song from the Tokyo-based [.que], aka, composer Nao Kakimoto.
