Review: After a run of reissues and a boundary-blurring fusion of classical music and electronica (January 2021's Angel's Flight), Norwegian ambient veteran Geir Jennsen AKA Biosphere has gone back to basics on Shortwave Memories. Ditching software and computers for analogue synths, drum machines and effects units, Jennsen has delivered album that he claims was inspired by the post-punk era electronics of Daniel Miller and Matin Hannett, but instead sounds like a new, less dancefloor-conscious take on the hybrid ambient/techno sound he was famous for in the early 1990s. The results are uniformly brilliant, making this one of the Norwegian trailblazer's most alluring and sonically comforting albums for decades.

Review: Zake and City of Dawn return to their longstanding collaboration for a new album, 'Agape', delivering a slow-droning album that bucks the trend of ambient's original purpose as background music. The Texas-Indiana duo steadily eases into great time-dilated deluges of sound, slowing everything down, yet not giving into pure depth, spanning both high and low frequencies. A natural theme is unearthed across the six pieces, producing a sublime soundscape reminiscent of Steve Roach, Bvdub or GAS meeting the thematic motifs of Shelley or Wordsworth.

  1. Influx - "Revel Dub" (6:15)
  2. Influx - "Revel Dub" (Slow version) (4:44)
  3. Syne - "Dystalgia" (11:51)
Review: 'PULSE 01' is the first release in PITP's new series, which is an ongoing exploration of ambient tech, while offering a more structured display of beat-driven ambient music. Pulse 01 features brand new tracks by SYNE and Influx.

SYNE is Dennis Huddleston from the UK, who is most recognized for his ambient work as 36. He returns to his SYNE alias for the first time in nearly 5 years, with only his second record since his 2017 self-titled debut LP.

'Dystalgia' is a 12 minute opus, spread over 3 movements. Soaring pads and razor sharp percussion combine for a dynamic, emotionally charged journey in sound. Showing love to the Detroit greats, but recognising the distinct UK influence which made him fall in love with Techno in the early 90's, it's a surprising pivot in Dennis' sound and one which all lovers of beautiful, melodic ambient techno should enjoy.

Influx is the techno/acid/trance moniker of James Bernard. With his first release in 1993 (Braineater EP on Sapho Records), Influx is no stranger to techno and acid. This project had been in hibernation for nearly 14 years until his 2021 remixes for his collaborative album with 36 and awakened souls (The Other Side of Darkness). Revel Dub is a dub-techno excursion with sprinkles of ambient and psy-trance rounding out the frequencies. The Slow Version dials back the tempo to half-time and travels to more ambient dub territories.

Review: Since debuting in the late 1990s, Simon Whalley has proved to be one of the most skilful creators of melodious, atmospheric and intricate IDM around. In that time, he's released countless killer EPs and a handful of albums, 2000's Reference being the pick of a very strong bunch. Wisely, Delsin have chosen to deliver a new vinyl pressing of that said, a gorgeously deep and detailed dive into the limitless musical potential of that classic IDM sound, which as those with long memories know mixed and matched elements of electro, techno, ambient and experimentalism. This edition includes all 24 tracks from the original CD version, rather than the truncated first vinyl pressing, and thanks to a sparkling re-master, sounds as exciting and entertaining as ever.

Review: Polish pianist Hania Rani has been on prolific form since signing to Gondwana in 2019 for the Esja album which broke her to a wider audience. Rooted in classical approaches to piano but with a modern outlook which touches on electronic processes and pop vocals, she starts 2022 with an arresting new live recording captured in the iconic Studio S2 in Warsaw. Embellishing her traditional piano approach with a Roland Stage Piano and a Prophet 08 synth, the four-track EP shows Rani in full flight, playing at her arresting best.

Review: Last October, acclaimed saxophonist Pharoah Sanders turned 80 years young, and his input on this album is testimony to the fact he has clearly aged like a fine wine. Not that this is to suggest preceding outings were anything less worthy than this collaborative project, which sees Sam Shepherd, the British electronic artist better known to most as Floating Points, write nine spectacular arrangements which are then performed by said brass legend, alongside The London Symphony Orchestra.

The results are spectacular, and wildly far-reaching, albeit firmly rooted in jazz with classical undertones. From the movements that made this final cut, some are whisper quiet and delicate to the point of risking breaking off if you were handling haphazardly. Others are booming loud, musical jumbo jets landing at the end of another great crescendo. Whether hushed or monumental, though, we can feel every note and bar of this masterpiece.

Review: Reissued and remastered 18 years after its first release, 'Neon City' is the debut LP by Erik K Skodvin and Otto A Totland, who together form the moody electronica duo project Deaf Center. Built on a mutual affinity for vintage hardware and the better rounded edges of electroacoustic, improvised darkjazz music, 'Neon City' has all the moodiness and atmosphere endemic to music from Norway, and flaunts what two then 20-year-olds could pull of while in their creative prime. Laden with old film samples and blue noted piano and guitar tinkles, there is a proto-Burialesque mood to this album, which otherwise shows off a clear and taut electro-improv palette and production style. On this edition, Keith Keniff aka. Helios comes through with a fresh remix of the opener 'Dial'.

Review: RECOMMENDED
If you don't know the name u-Ziq by now then you've not been paying enough attention. Also referred to as Mike Paradinas, he's the guy in charge of inimitable UK label Planet Mu, which has been at the forefront of audibly varied dance music since 1995 that remains as close to IDM as you get in today's age.

That trend continues on this collaborative effort with past Mu signing Hanna Davidson, or Mrs Jynx. A record that was created as part of a therapeutic healing process in spring 2021, a time when both artists were dealing not just with the wight of a pandemic but, more significantly, for them, deep personal grief and profound loss, the result is a melodic masterpiece, an opiate opus of deep dive rhythms and noises.

Review: Tom Middleton and Mark Pritchard created a landmark of ambient music when they released 76:14 back in the 90s. Their Global Communication project was never just about ambient though, and it also coursed through deep house and more besides. In the spirit of progress, Middleton has returned to thinking about the project from a contemporary perspective, stepping forth as GCOM with the epic scope of E2 XO. From stirring orchestral suites to high octane DSP, it's an expansive listening experience that shows Middleton pushing himself into new terrain in the studio. Whether you tie it back to the prior material or not, it's a towering piece of work from an elder statesman of UK electronica.

Review: The master sound designer that is ASC is always going to turn heads whenever he serves up a new album. Silent Season out of Canada took care of this one which technically came out in 2019 but remained digital only. Now it makes its way to wax in all its immersive ambient glory. The hugely expansive record is made up of lush celestial pads, translucent curlicue fragments that drift in wide open spaces and balmy synths that arc way up high. It is aural wall paper, a sonic lava lamb, a trip through the cosmos in high definition that will leave you feeling utterly cleansed. Waves is etheral and magnificent in every way.

Review: REPRESS ALERT: Schleissen 1 marks the beginning of a major, four-part project from Stuart Leath's Emotional Response label; an in-depth exploration of the "outer reaches" of drone and ambient. It's a grand scheme, highlighted perfectly by the grandiose scale of Serbian maverick Abul Mogard's opener - a hypnotic, 19-minute exploration of modular drone music that's as freaky as it is beautiful. Stefan Schwander dons his now familiar Harmonious Thelonious alias on the flip, laying down two brilliantly melodious synthesizer pieces inspired by the cyclical compositions of acclaimed minimalist composer Steve Reich. Both pieces are borderline stunning, and more than worth the admission price.

Review: 'No Beauty In The World' is a reflection of how in a world so cruel we can find beauty, with its music bouncing between beautiful ambience and piano loops, modular synth melodies to darker textural and feedback driven drones. Unlike other wounds records where the fluidity of the entire album tells a story, 'No Beauty In The World' explore various sonic possibilities and territories. This is a culmination of over 2 years of writing and recording, constantly driven by the uncertainty and darkness in the world that we live in. Despite it all, the sonic arc of the album gives us something to hope for, maybe there is beauty in the end. The record was engineered and mixed by Diogo Strausz (Far Out Recordings) in France and mastered (digital and vinyl) by Lawrence English (Room40). The record features collaborations from guitarist Carlos Ferreira and drummer / synthesist Phillip Stosberg.

It follows on from 2016's Stasis and 2019's Hollow Earth, all three of which have had a gently epic sci-fi concept that has very much taken listeners on a trip through the cosmos. This latest is said to play with "the idea of mycorrhizal networks and human attempts to listen in and communicate." It is a well-crafted and compelling world of sound with stripped back and sleek synth sequences, rolling hypnotic rhythms and plenty of deft sonic details that help craft an expansive world of sound.

For last year's label compilation, I mentioned how I hoped to invite a guest DJ to compile the next edition, and here we are. Of course, it just had to be our long-term musical companion, a good friend of mine, and well-respected DJ, todos. I was first introduced to todos through his well-respected Kilchurn Mix series. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, they remain some of my favorite mixes of all time (listen to them all on the ASIP site when you get a chance). His ability to craft a narrative, manipulate samples and respect the grey area between ambient and electronic music, is second-to-none.

Review: Dennis Huddleston's most recent album as 36, Wave Variations, promptly sold out in double-quick time upon its release in the summer of 2020. Because of this, The Past Inside The Present has decided to reissue it. If you missed out first time round, we'd recommend giving it a listen. It's a tighter and more focused album than some of Huddleston's sprawling epics, with most of the heavily melodic tracks clocking in around three minutes. He also composed them in sequence to guarantee a gently unfurling and flowing album, while his decision to rely on a relatively small palette of synthesizer sounds adds an extra layer of coherence. Basically, it's a wonderfully evocative, emotive and quietly tuneful set that we'd consider one of the best ambient works of recent years.

Review: RECCOMENDED
Disgraced ex-army surgeons, whaling journeys, Arctic wastelands, and meditations on morality and humankind's place in the grander scheme of Mother Earth. Anyone would think the mini-series Water needed a Tim Hecker soundtrack to truly convey it's expeditionary traits, or at least that's exactly what the producers thought when commissioning this latest example of an electronic music visionary being drafted to craft a score which, when you encounter it alone and without the visual aspect, feels removed from the scene on screen.

All of which only serves to accentuate the genius of it all. These noises, tones, tunes, and sounds aren't indicative of the era in which the plot unfolds, in fact they would have been impossible to create back then. But, through the atmospheres they conjure, the work transports you to a place where adventure and discovery are par for the course. Moody, evocative, at once fantastical and yearning, it's mesmerising stuff.

The second edition once again brings together an array of respected producers, who present some of their most emotional compositions to date. Highlights come from: Detroit hi-tech soul legend John Beltran on the evocative deepness of 'Elevate It', KMRU providing a contemplative soundscape to truly lose yourself in on 'In A Distance', Faki himself flips the script and provides a rare downbeat expression on 'Flew Away' and Japanese hypnotic techno merchant Wata Igarashi provides an immersive and glassy-eyed piece titled 'Our Place'

Cat: MGART 904. Rel: 20 Sep 16
  1. 31' 38 (31:25)

Review: You'll probably already be acquainted with the name Manuel Gottsching - and you should be - but just in case you aren't, he was a pillar of Ash Ra Tempel's golden years and, among other of his contemporaries, was a pioneer of the genre that is often dubbed 'new age'. E2-E4 was a 1984 solo album from the man, and is certainly up there with the likes of Steve Reich's best minimal material, although it has often gone relatively unnoticed. MG Art from Germany have done us the favour of reissuing this monumental release, and we're utterly awestruck by how contemporary and fresh this album still is. In fact, one could say that a tune like "31'38" is the basis for the sound championed by new labels like Mood Hut, where a significantly danceable beat is laid above placid, warm harmonics. Similarly, "23'00" is just as balearic and phased out but, once again, we just can't believe how great this music still sounds more than thirty years later. Warmly recommended.

Review: Lisbon's Groovement label returns to its Organic Series once again, taking a trip across outernational plains with the delectable touch of Kaoru Inoue under his Chari Chari alias. From the sitar lilting on "Meandering River" to the pattering chimes of 'PEsta Malam', this is an album brimming with real-world beauty even as it glides through synthetically sculpted spaces. Inoue's touch is patient and poised, but it's certainly no background environmental music. Powered by purposeful percussion and offering a spectrum of moods for your contemplation and delectation, Suburban Ethnology Vol 1 is a beautifully rendered EP once again affirming Inoue's spellbinding craft as a multifaceted artist.

Review: 'Anon 1' was originally released as a very limited Anonymous 12" on Past Inside the Present in 2020, featuring 36 and Isaac Helsen. The idea was to let people hear the music and judge it not on the names behind it, but purely on the quality of the music itself. When it sold out, the label revealed who wrote it. Obviously quite a few 36 & Isaac Helsen fans missed out, so Past Inside the Present repressed the record, but this time with the knowledge of who made the tunes now public.

Review: When it comes to crafting high-quality, hard-to-pigeonhole electronic music with an immersive ambient twist, there are few better than Manchester duo Space Afrika. Honest Labour, an album crafted during the various pandemic lockdowns of the last few years, remains rooted in their trademark sound - think opaque ambient electronics, blazed beats, crackling field recordings, snatches of spoken word and snippets of sampled vocals - while also subtly expanding their musical repertoire to include stoned lo-fi soul, Cocteau Twins style guitars, occasional guest raps, pitched-down neo-soul and cascading string arrangements. Taken as a whole, it's a magnificent and enveloping musical journey that could end up being one of the strongest albums of 2022.

Review: Burnski's Instinct alias has given rise to two full-length albums and a swathe of EPs in just the past two years alone, and now he's heralding spring with the launch of a new label, Abyla, and his most delicate, ambient record to date. Happening is a far cry from what you might know of Burnski or indeed the Instinct project overall, focusing as it does on orchestral ambience with a preference for plaintive piano lines at the front of the mix and ample drone matter backing it up. These short vignettes glide between moods, hovering in moments of tender minimalism or bursting with effervescence depending on the situation.

Review: Gerd Janson's Runing Back encourages us all to take a moment to relax, sink in deep and get lost in some reverential thoughts with this new album from Panoram. The artist's first album came on Edinburgh's Firecracker Recordings and this one is just as sublime. It is surreal ambient with vocal whispers, strings that signify new dawns and wide open blue skies that cast you adrift on the Med. The colours are muted hues of orange and yellow, the occasional rhythms are lo-fi and rickety, beautiful, slow-moving melodies washer you repeatedly and the whole thing has its own uniquely out of this world atmosphere.

This time it's up to Domino man Jon Hopkins to give us an outlook onto his own tastes and musical influences. The selection is vast and varied, with everyone from Four Tet to Darkstar and even Peter Broderick featuring within. An incandescent blend of sci-fi electronica, tropical bass nuggets and lighter shades of drone-fuelled house. Quality.

Released under their given names Karl O'Connor and Peter Sutton, the record is a noted zenith of the Birmingham techno scene of the era. It has had a major influence on the music that was released in the years after and has here been remastered for a fresh double vinyl pack. As well as the original sounds, there is also 'Theme From Streetwalke,' a track that was previously released on a Tresor compilation. The tracks are heavy but relatively stripped back. They're packed with texture and atmosphere and never less than hugely compelling.

Review: Roy Of The Ravers takes a break from his mischievious outings on Acid Waxa et al to lay down some of his braindance tackle on Emotional Response. White Line Sunrise II.I (Le Roy Soleil) can rightly be considered a follow-up to White Line Sunrise II and indeed it represents a similar kind of spectrum of electronica. Roy's sound is edging further into the kind of 'artist' territory where slower, softer tracks, odd vocal diversions and some pop sensibilities merge with the acid, electro, breakbeat and other well-established tropes of his sound. It's the kind of record which could easily broach this quirky fringe operator of UK electronics to a broader fan base, and there's no doubt he's got the melodic, emotional heft on tracks like 'Versace 101624' to get everyone on board.

Review: I'll Look for You in Others is the bittersweet fruit of a painful time in the Portland, Oregon, electronic musician's life. Patricia wrote and recorded the album in 2020, in the aftermath of losing her mother-in-law to cancer and then, months later, losing a close friend. Created using her habitual materials-synthesizer and voice-in unfamiliar ways, the album served as a means of processing her feelings of heartbreak. Feeling disconnected from everything around her, including her usual approach to music, Patricia found new inspiration in spectral processors-digital FFT algorithms that pull apart and reconfigure audio. As she reshaped her synthesizers and voice into stark, silvery new forms, she realized that the process functioned as a metaphor for grief itself: a representation of the transformation that happens when our loved ones are no longer with us as a physical presence, but are still alive within us in a beautiful new way. I'll Look for You in Others is not just a document of loss; it is a testament to the way the loss of loved ones changes our lives, and the way the presence of those we've lost changes shape after they are gone. I'll Look for You in Others marks Wolf's official debut album, following a long, extensive practice of live performance, sound-design projects, contributions to benefit compilations, and reworks of the music of her friends and peers.

Review: While some would argue that it was the Orb or Pete Namlook who defined the sound of the 1990s ambient movement, you'll struggle to find a finer set of immersive electronic tracks than Global Communication's 1994 debut album 76:14. Here reissued on vinyl by its creators, Tom Middleton and Mark Pritchard, with stunning, re-mastered sound (seriously, it has never sounded better), packaging and liner notes, the album still has the ability to take your breath away with its beauty, emotiveness and the almost neo-classical style of the duo's track construction. Highlights are plentiful, from the hip-hop influenced IDM shuffle of '9:25' and Namlook-ish bliss of '9:39', to the delicately layered choral vocals and deep chords of '12:18', and rushing release of the '8.01'/'5:23' double-header (better-known as 'Maiden Voyage').

Review: Grand River's always-illuminating One Instrument label reawakens with a new album from Martin Sander and Michel Isorinne's Bandhagens Musikforening project. Having previously appeared on Northern Electronics and Semantica, now these two advanced synthesists place all their attention on a select few studio pieces to see how far they can take them. First up is the Roland System 100, which affords them plenty of tonal possibilities for the pulsing, kinetic 'Nedgravd I Naturen'. With the Yamaha DX-7 they create a towering ambient piece of FM synthesis, while the Roland SH-101 gets applied to a dense and detailed slice of obtuse leftfield techno. The Oberheim Matrix 6R becomes a vehicle for cinematic melancholy, and the Waldorf Microwave teases out an immersive swirl of ambience as you might well expect from the One Instrument series.

Review: Turkish artist Ekin Fil spent a year writing this one during the early and most anxious stages of the first lockdown in 2020. It is cast under a heavy shadow and cloudy skies of circling drones, drifting chords and spoken word laments. There are glimpses of hope and light in some of the more melodic pieces, where a little key shines through the dust. It is a record that fully captures a sense of isolation and limittless moments lost in time and deep in thought. Despite the seriousness of the music, it is often beautiful.

Review: Variously inspired by space, sleep science, conscious AI, sound art and climate change, GCOM is Tom Middleton's new vehicle for the kind of music he once made with Mark Pritchard as Global Communication. That's not to say that E2 XO, his first album using the alias, is a Global Communication tribute; in fact, for all of the beautiful, intergalactic ambient, neo-classical, IDM and ambient techno tracks on display, there are just as many that doff a cap to Autechre's more intense moments, experimental drum & bass, Rephlex-style Braindance and post-dubstep UK bass. It's an interesting mixture of sounds and styles all told, but one that makes perfect sonic sense when listened to in its entirety. We can't wait to see how Middleton develops the project in future.

She is renowned for her forays into cutting-edge electronic experimentation as well as her striking, impressionistic poetry and lyrics, always recited in Greek. Also included is an insert with lyrics in both Greek and English.

Review: This intriguing and predictably atmospheric album is the first collaborative full-length from experienced modern ambient producer Dennis Huddleston AKA 36, and Los Angeles duo Awakened Souls, whose full-length hook-up with Pepo Galan, Palettes, received plenty of praise last year. Between them the trio have conjured up a hugely evocative and emotion-rich collection of cuts, where heart-aching, slow-motion guitar laments stretch out across swelling synthesizer chords, meditative pads, distant-sounding vocal snippets, enveloping aural textures and soft-focus piano refrains. It's a wonderfully meditative and picturesque set all told, and one that could well turn out to be one of the most essential ambient albums of 2021.

  4. The Age Of Selfishness (7:42)
  5. World Reset (7:50)
Review: American ambient label Past Inside The Present has already assured its cult status and each new release only builds on that. This time out it is Distance As Power from UK producer Dennis Huddleston aka 36 (who already released his Wave Variations album on this label this year) and prolific Japan-based sound artist Duenn who join forces for some murky and lo-fi escapism. Their five painterly tracks come on slowly and build powerfully through foggy pads, arching chords and a nostalgic sense of warmth. This is warm, widescreen and abstract bliss.

Review: Color of Time is a long distance, ambient and drone project featuring Kevin Sery (From Overseas) and Nick Turner (Tyresta). Created with guitar, synthesizers, Mellotron and effects, their music focuses on themes of impermanence, loss and the impact that humans have on each other and the planet.

Review: Given The Primitive Painter would go on to become Alter Ego it should come as no surprise to anyone that this self titled debut from 1994 still sounds incredibly polished, and manages to hit a multitude of electronic notes in one very impressive swoop - some melancholic, some otherworldly, others punchy and direct. Re-releases like this are enough to convince even the most cynical first-pressing militants of the value in re-releasing. Why shouldn't a new generation of heads be won over by the beautiful acid ravescape painted by 'A Pagan Place', the slamming toybox percussion of 'Click Song', the emotionally charged euphoric downtempo joy of appropriately-titled 'Hope' or the retro futurism of electro-stepper 'Levitation'? As essential today as it would have been 25 years ago.

Review: Since first appearing in 2011, Liz Harris' seventh album as Grouper, "AIA: Dream Loss" has become something of a sought-after item. As this vinyl reissue proves, there's a very good reason for that: it's superb. Based around an opaque and cloudy production style that's as trippy as it is oddly comforting, it sees Harris layer up haunting freestyle vocals, droning electronic textures, analogue noise and all manner of acoustic and electric instrumentation - guitars, strings and so on - into a thick sonic soup. While the instrumentation may be distant and downplayed in the mix, that gives it a haunting, ethereal quality.

The Transition Recordings
Cat: AI 25. Rel: 15 Sep 21
  1. The Transition Recordings (part 1) (21:02)
  2. The Transition Recordings (part 2) (21:00)
Review: Newcomers to Astral Industries have happened upon the label at a great moment here. Hanyo van Oosterom is continuing the fantastic work he was involved in with J. Derwort under the Chi project name following the latter's death in 2019. Now producing under the moniker Son of Chi, it's an extension rather than a repetition of what has come before it.

Tonal vocabulary expanded, it feels more immersive and grander than ever before, and yet retains the fundamentals that first enraptured us. Organic instrumentation and the sense of falling ever deeper into dreamlike states of consciousness are just two ways of describing what both Chi and the new offspring concept bring to the table. These are new sonic worlds opening up before our mind's eye, packed with mystery, lamentation, and hope for tomorrow.
