Album: Where Nobody Goes
Label: Raumklang Music
Genre: IDM, Ambient
Debut album from IDM/Ambient producer Exosphere. A rather downtempo affair thick with ambient atmospheres and lowkey, glitchy beats.
+ Cold, muted atmospheres that remind me a lot of DNN and even arctic ambient such as Biosphere's Substrata. A cold, overcast day in winter with the muted sun above and snowflakes blowing around you. Low visibility, but not unpleasant. Good use of pads and drones to mold a cohesive mood for the entire album.
- Nothing that takes this to the next level. While it provides an entertaining listen, it's more or less standard issue ambient/idm which you can find on a number of netlabels.
Nothing life changing, but it will definitely appeal to fans of DNN, Architrav, Pleq, Huron, etc. If you are looking for something that focuses on cold, distant atmospheres coupled with unintrusive, clicky IDM beats than you should check this out.
