The compilations begins with a dark and menacing texture, quickly accompanied by some elegant strings and distant, stretched chimes. A quick succession of clashing instruments akin with Art of Noise, and K.D. Expression’s Alpae-3717 kicks off. From there, I never looked back.
Plenty of new, inspiring ambient and electronica on this compilation from Sentimony Records. Russia’s psychedelic master, Astropilot put his Siberian ear to the ground with this lot, and even managed to pluck out two favourites you may have come across on ASIP before; Germany’s Field Rotation and the UK’s very own 36.
