Is ambient music too easy? Is it a con? The very nature of the genre itself seems to add gravitas and depth to the music that would certainly not be there in a happy hardcore or Eurotrance track.
What has been captured here on this releases though is not just song writing, but a performance. These tracks are all composed and performed live, in one take, through Eurorack synthesizer modules. No editing, remixing, layering or effects have been added.
From Owlbinos of Northfield’s iPad looped field recordings, to Kanal Drei’s modular techno mayhem, via hip-hop, ambient, drum and bass, acid, and 8-bit, this is a quality record, from a quality label.
