A blend of ambient and IDM with down-to-mid-tempo beats. First I registered this as some strange combination of psy chill atmosphere and glitchy sounds, then I figured there’s quite a bit of cyberpunk mood to it. I could imagine this to be a soundtrack of a neo-noir RPG game. Then I looked at the album title again… Riiiiight.
Deep dark cinematic ambient. Soundtrack for exploring a dead planet floating in airless dark void after a cataclismic event.
I had a hard time decoding this record with its extremes ranging from experimental IDM to cool blue jazz. Just thinking about the aspect of this being some weirdly unique and altered jazz sound, gave me associations of The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble or even Brandt Brauer Frick. But this was something different still. And then I read this was a duo of Bernd Friedmann and Uwe Schmidt (Atom™) and it all clicked into place. It’s amazing how two artists can blend into one music in a way that you can see who brought what to the table so clearly.
In full honesty though, my favorite track here is Sweet Silence, which has no electrnics to it, but the film noir atmosphere is just irresistible.
Gives everything Loscil promises: beautiful beatless ambient with the softest little well-placed noises. It is cinematic but it is not at all theatrical.
Amazing tripping techno with dancefloor tempo. This makes me miss a good techno party bad.
Intimate electronic music (think Moderat) with down to mid tempo and glitchy broken beats. Not the kind of intimate that makes you turn inside and feel blue, but the one that gives a push and inspires.
I spent the Saturday packing up my apartment and organizing things. Perfect soundtrack for that.
I’m not as amazed by this as I was with Post-Truth and Black Daisy Wheel but it’s still a good listen and worth noting. Genrewise this is a bit all over the place from IDM to techno and electro. That said, I’m not fan of the more experimental tracks on this one and like the more laid back, easy-going tunes.
Nu skool breaks and progressive house Sasha style. Go for the continuous mixed version.
It’s a straight-up electronic dub record. Perfect soundtrack for work.
