Dark, trippy, beautiful subspace electronica at its finest. Intricately layered with stripped beats, vintage analog synth, live analog electronics, found samples with tape loops and vocal cuts. These tracks are best appreciated up loud, with a decent pair of headphones and a dimly lit room. Includes a free 15-page 'lookbook' of specially commissioned artwork for the album (pdf format), see below.

Differences from the pre-release (2015): The preview release in late 2015 has ten of these tracks, but several are in a pretty rough shape. All tracks on the full release were rearranged and digitally remastered, with three completely new tracks written.


Selected tracks are available on SoundCloud, or you can listen free to all tracks at Bandcamp
