  5. Color Me (Telefon Tel Aviv remix) (5:19)
Review: Bochum Welt's 2019 album "Seafire" was arguably one of the strongest full-length sets that Central Processing Unit has released to date, which given the Sheffield-based label's track record is high praise indeed. This EP offers fresh interpretations of some of the album's many highlights. First up is a perfectly pitched radio edit of "More Light" a gorgeous slice of IDM bliss that recalls the halcyon days of Boards of Canada, which is later given a slightly chunkier - but no less beautiful - treatment by EOD and a bustling, club-ready electro re-fix, complete with Yorkshire bleeps, by veteran DJ/producer James Zabeila. Elsewhere, the ambient mix of "G1" is as luscious and blissful as you'd expect, while Teflon Tel Aviv's revision of "Color Me" is opaque, sun-kissed and more than a little spaced-out.

  1. Johanna Knutsson & Lioness - "Oramics" (6:23)
  2. Tora Vinter & Lioness - "Delian Archives" (6:15)
  3. Fjader & Lioness - "There There Theremin" (feat Ravens'vor) (7:39)
Review: Each successive EP on Nikki Pryke AKA Lioness' Envelope Audio imprint has been a multi-artist affair, offering tracks that explore the margins of techno, electro and ambient. The label's latest EP follows this template, with Pryke playing a central role on a selection of tracks that veer towards the more slowly shifting and spacey end of the ambient spectrum. Pryke first joins forces with Johanna Knutsson on the languid, synthesizer-heavy bliss of "Oramics", before collaborating with Tora Vinter on "Delian Archives", a fine tribute to Radiophonic Workshop pioneer Delia Derbyshire rich in icy motifs and modular bleeps and glitches. Arguably best of all though is B-side "There, There, Theremin", a celestial ambient excursion crafted by Pryke and Fjader that wraps deconstructed Theremin sounds and ghostly chords around tactile, easy-going electronics.

Review: Three years ago, Giuseppe Tillieci and Filippo Scorcucchi joined forces as LF58 for a debut EP of blissful ambient epics on Auxiliary that arguably didn't get the coverage its quality deserved. We have a sneaking feeling that the pair's debut album, which lands on the fantastic Astral Industries imprint, won't go unnoticed. For starters, it's brilliant, with the four lengthy tracks seeing them drift between Global Communication/Irresistible Force style melodic positivity (the hazy effects, huggable pads and echoing melodies of "Iniziazione"), ultra-deep, psychedelic dub techno ("Rituale", where simple melodic refrains wind in and out of sparse but hypnotic beats), swelling tropical ambient warmth with added deep space effects ("Metamorfosi") and the kind of languid, slow-motion fare that sits somewhere between Pete Namlook and Spacetime Continuum (side D suite "Evocazione/Contatto/Risveglio").

D'Ya Hear Me! (CD Single)

  1. D'Ya Hear Me!
  2. D'Ya Hear Me! (Karaoke)
  3. D'Ya Hear Me! (Bim One Production remix)
  4. D'Ya Hear Me! (CVN remix)
Review: Here's something of a rarity in the 21st century: a CD single. It comes courtesy of Osaka-based ambient/dub/digital reggae fusionist (and sometime Tapes collaborator) 7FO and guest vocalist NTsKi. In its original form "D'Ya Hear Me!" is opaque, loved-up and saucer-eyed, with NTsKi adding dewy-eyed vocals to a 7FO riddim that cannily joins the dots between dreamy ambient pop, lo-fi digital reggae and cheery electronica. 7FO's inventive, colourful and gleefully innocent-sounding backing track can be heard in full on the instrumental "Karaoke Version". Heavier digi-dub flavours are provided on the superbly out there and spacey Bim One Production remix, while the CVN rework re-imagines the track as an off-kilter chunk of cheery experimental pop.

Review: Elina Shorokhova AKA Soela has shown much promise over the last few years, with her releases on Lost Palms, E-Beamz and Detroit Underground all attracting plenty of plaudits. She's now been added to the Dial Records roster and here offers up a hotly anticipated debut album that prioritises mood, melody and glassy-eyed aural textures over any specific desire to make dancefloors move. That's not to say that you couldn't play much of the music in a club setting, it's just that the brand of house explored throughout is dreamy, tuneful, ultra-deep and pleasingly hypnotic. There are nods to ambient, IDM, dub techno and minimal, too, making it the kind of set to immerse yourself in on headphones while enjoying a little spring sunshine.

Review: On her 2019 debut album "Vegetal Negatives", sound recordist, sound designer and experimental electronic composer Marja Ahti offered up a striking blend of processed field recordings, unearthly ambient tones and hissing tape loops. She continues on a similar theme on this equally impressive sequel, the centrepiece of which is a 20-minute long commissioned piece, "The Altitudes", in which creepy electronic tones, deathly bells and spooky ambient chords flit in and out of an atmospheric collage of crackling radio static, distant field recordings and otherworldly noises. The four shorter pieces on side two explore similar aural themes, with the ebb of flow of Ahti's minimalist musical missives slipping in and out of ghostly, music concrete style soundscapes.

Review: For his latest album as Atomine Elektrine - his first for esteemed Dutch imprint Winter Light - Peter Andersson has drawn inspiration from the Antikythera Mechanism, a real-life ancient Greek device that is widely thought to have been the world's first "analogical computer". The album's six tracks are as magical and mythical as the discovered device that inspired them, with Andersson cannily fusing layered field recordings and strange, spaced-out noises with swelling ambient chords, slowly unfurling melodies and spacey sampled noises to create audio collages that defy lazy categorization. It reminded us a little of some of the darker and weirder outings of the KLF during their brief ambient period (think the lesser known "Rites of Mu" and "Waiting" soundtracks), albeit with more intergalactic ethos.

Review: Having previously self-released his music online, Adam London AKA Bedroom has finally found a home to showcase his particular brand of immersive, slow-burning ambient music - albeit via a release of which only 100 copies are available worldwide. While this means you'll have to be fast to secure a copy, we'd recommend making the investment. The Chicago-based producer's work is fluid, warm, dreamy and drifting, with his extensive use of glistening, reverb-laden electric guitar solos, opaque chords and other 'traditional' acoustic instruments - there's occasional and well-placed piano, cello, viola and violin - recalling the work of Jonny Nash and the superb Music From Memory label. While London's work has its own distinct flavour, it paddles in similarly sunset-ready waters - and is every bit as alluring.

Review: Given that they named themselves after Norfolk's famous waterways, it's perhaps unsurprising that Norwich duo Broads have released rather a lot of music inspired by the county's numerous sleepy towns and villages. They're at it again on "Ollust", a fine album of atmospheric music made in cahoots with friend and fellow Norwich resident Milly Hirst. Her beautiful piano playing and layered choral vocals feature prominently throughout, combining with Broads hazy electronic textures, slowly shifting drones, fractured post-rock guitar notes and enveloping production to create a series of stunning pastoral soundscapes. The most arresting examples of this are jaw-dropping opener "Happisburgh" (named after a coastal village that's slowly falling into the sea), the short-but-inspired "Oulton" and the epic "Strangers", where intensely dark, creeping motifs slowly engulf Hirst's piano.

Review: Sound scientist Brock Van Wey decided to mix things up during the making of his latest album, the decidedly bittersweet and weary "Ten Times The World Lied". To begin with, he decided to deliver an album without vocals - the first time he's ever done that - before opting to record a track a month, on the tenth day of each, for ten months. Furthermore, each densely layered track was recorded and mixed live. The results are impressive, with Van Wey offering mostly melancholic - but intensely beautiful - collages of layered ambient chords, effects-laden melodic movements and extreme aural textures that fill every invisible nook and cranny of the sound space.

Review: Even by the standards of ambient artists, Celer AKA Will Long is insanely prolific. It's why he's already been the subject of one must-have box set (Smalltown Supersound's five-disc "Memory Repetitions"), and can easily make his new album, "Future Predictions", a sprawling, four-disc affair. As those familiar with his work will attest, few are capable of crafting works of such stunningly swelling beauty. All four extended pieces here - all of which were created by layering tapes loops of instruments to give the effect of a live ensemble, with added processed field recordings and sound effects - are breath-taking, delivering the kind of emotive, immersive ambience that provides a meditative distraction from the stresses of everyday life.

Review: We were full of praise for Will Long AKA Celer's recent quadruple-album set, "Future Predictions". In our review we also pointed out that his back catalogue is worth investigating, though his prolific nature can make it hard to know where to start. Helpfully Two Acorns has come to the rescue by offering up this reissue of one of his earliest - and still most potent - sets. "Scols" was initially self-released in 2006 as part of a double CD-R set, and was made alongside his then partner, the sadly departed Danielle Baquet-Long. The album effectively drew up the blueprint for much of Long's later work, delivering immersive ambient soundscapes built around layers of tape loops that together sound like swelling orchestral movements.

Review: As you might expect, there are a number of thoughtful themes explored on French composer Sylvain Chauveau's latest album, "Life Without Machines". Chauveau has framed it as a meditation on humanity's reliance on machinery and whether that's sustainable - a potent point in the era of COVID-19 - though the accompanying press release also states that each of the album's short compositions used "Barnett Newman's 'The Stations of The Cross' series of abstract paintings as a visual score". Regardless, what's offered up is haunting, sparse and profoundly moving: a succession of solo piano pieces performed by French pianist Melaine Dalibert that are variously haunting, bittersweet, beautiful and surprisingly sorrowful.

Review: Islands, volcanoes and instrumental exile stories...
From Overseas is the experimental ambient project by Kevin Sery.

Originally from the tiny French overseas department and region, Reunion Island, he routinely bounces between his home island, a small port town on the east coast of the US and continental Europe picking up fresh ideas and inspiration along the way.

With a beautiful master by Stephan Mathieu (12k, Shelter Press, ...), From Overseas releases his first full length album "Home" on PITP. "Home" is a journey through beautiful soundscapes where dark and light intertwine, where ambient tones give way to post-rock guitar craft, then segway to melodic drone, noise and back again. These soothingly powerful songs evoke emotions on a full spectrum, dreamy unplanned travels and inspire us to question the nature of the place that each of us calls home. The fourth track, Maloya Tales, is a personal tribute to Sery's homeland 'Reunion Island' and gives the listener a glimpse of the mystical rhythms of traditional Reunionese Maloya music.

Review: Three years on from their first inspired full-length collaboration, electro-acoustic experimentalists and composers Yair Elazar Glotman and Mats Erlandsson join forces once more. The result is a 50-minute suite of tracks that mixes swelling, surging orchestral movements with processed electronic sounds and a rich, bass-heavy approach to sound design. It's not quite ambient - it's too detailed, carefully crafted and intricate for that - but it isn't exactly neo-classical, either, instead existing in some kind of opaque netherworld between the two. Whatever you call it, "Emanate" is exceedingly immersive, rewarding those listeners who take time to take it all in using a great pair of headphones.

Review: Like many of his contemporaries, US producer Huerco S usually deals in wavy, trembling house amalgams, but also often deals in all things ambient and beatless. This new LP on Anthony Naples' Proibito, however, is a marked step in a different direction from the artist, and it shows us that he's more talented at the genre than merely a B2 stuck on at the end of a techno deviation. For Those Of You Who Have Never (And Also Those Who Have) is a stunning ambient album; each track across its duration is filled with life and purpose, a clear musical and expressive direction that many so-called ambient artists lack. It's likely to be remembered for a long time, and allow this artist to be seen as having a truly experimental mindset.

Review: Those with a passion for early new age music should know all about Iasos, a California-based musician who has been serving up deliciously meditative ambient and new age albums since 1975. Here he offers up a new edition of his sought-after 1978 set "Angelic Music", a warm, dreamy and luscious blend of slowly shifting chords, sustained notes and slow-burn melodies that increase in prominence as each of the two 30-minute tracks progress. Interestingly the versions showcased here are longer than the edited versions initially released, with the flipside - where recordings of crickets rise and fall around swelling synthesizer chords - being our pick of a very strong pair.

  14. Maha Splendor (5:48)
Review: Way back in 1975, two albums slipped out that would effectively establish the synthesizer-fired "new age" sound. Arguably the more important - and better quality - of the two was "Inter-dimensional Music", the debut LP from California-based musician Iasos. Here reissued on vinyl for the first time in a decade, the superb set combines drowsy ambient chords, gentle organ melodies and other subtle instrumental flourishes (bass guitar, pedal steel, lazy electric guitar solos) with field recordings of lapping waves, babbling brooks and so on. While new age would become a bit of a cheesy cliche in later years, "Inter-Dimensional Music" is a superb collection of drifting, meditative tracks that soothe and seduce the senses.

Review: Imaginary Softwoods has the kind of overwhelmingly beautiful take on ambient music that finds his early cassette-only releases being picked up and reissued on vinyl by a range of labels from Digitalis to Archives Interieures. This time around 2016 Mineral Disk release "Annual Flowers In Color" has been picked up by Amethyst Sunset, giving a fresh airing to a stunning album. The highlights are primarily the longest tracks - "Aura Show" is a stunning, glacial drone piece at heart although it goes on a sizable journey over 10 minutes. The shorter vignettes are just as delightful though - the winsome reverie of "The Geranium Room" will have you lamenting its brevity when it finishes after 65 seconds.

Review: According to Rafael Anton Irisarri, his first album for Dais was inspired by a desire to "focus on the personal in order to tell a wider human story" - itself a reversal of his usual more impersonal approach to music-making. Musically the eight-track set also offers a slight stylistic shift, too, with Irisarri's usual ghostly ambient chords, grandiose sound design and heavily processed electronic textures being joined by fractured snippets of choral recordings, similarly fuzzy string songs, and the kind of densely layered and intense sounds that recall the dark weightiness of heavy metal. Throw in a bittersweet and melancholic tone, and you have one of Irisarri's most striking albums to date.

Review: In 2018, Laurel Halo recorded her first soundtrack score, a ghostly and intoxicating suite of tracks created for an experimental Dutch documentary about surveillance and social media called "Possessed". Here that music gets a deserved vinyl release courtesy of Vinyl Factory. It's an alluring set of tracks that sees Halo cannily combine radio static and distance electronics with ambient tones, beautiful piano meditations, folksy compositions, found sound and superb violin and cello parts provided by guest musicians Galya Bisengalieva and Oliver Coates. Throughout, Halo's superb compositions sit somewhere between breathtaking beauty, soundscape paranoia and bittersweet escapism.

Review: Downtempo dream team Jonny Nash and Suzanne Kraft join forces once more for another excursion far out to sea. Their ambient soundscapes are as lush as they come and are the perfectly transportive sounds we need right now. From mellow and melancholic piano chords to meandering synth lines there is lots to get lost in here, always with a real sense of slowly unfolding narrative and deep sense of immersion. The tenderness of this duo seems to know no bounds as they continue to find truly moving beauty in the most minimal of compositions.
