You may remember that all the way back in March, we gave you an early tip-off that Tom Middleton would be following up his essential mix album for The Trip series on Family Recordings. In what we think is a bit of an exclusive for CH, we can finally reveal the artwork and tracklisting, both of which look like being worthy successors. Like last time, the album's split in two, with the first side now called Vertical and the second, Horizontal.

As you might guess, Vertical is the party mix, and one that goes off at a tangent at every opportunity, starting with hackneyed tv themes before mixing in the likes of hip-hop pioneers Eric B. & Rakim, Brazilian body-percussionists Barbatuques and weird electronica from I Monster. Horizontal is naturally more laid-back. Modern classics like Boards Of Canada's Dayvan Cowboy and Here's What's Left by RJD2 melt into tracks old and new from Quantic, Plump DJs and The Orb. The seminal Tangerine Dream hypnotically rap things up with Love On A Real Train.

The Trip 2 Navigated by Tom Middleton is set for release on 23 October 2006, and you can see the full tracklisting after the jump.
