    As influential as Pete Namlook is in the scheme of all things ambient, diving into his bottomless discography–the producer has more than 135 albums–can be daunting. Here’s the next best thing, then: a Secret Thirteen-curated tribute to Namlook’s music that mixes similarly minded records from 1979-1981, including the softer transmissions of Throbbing Gristle, the knob-twiddling experiments of Wire frontman Colin Newman, and the early synth-pop of the Human League. All weaved together by another ambient icon, Biosphere
