Through wailing winds and icy ambient synths, this evocative collection of elemental soundscapes expertly transports the listener to barren lands and remote tundras. As you beat a path through the moody sample work, you’ll encounter bass rumbles, meditative flourishes and unnerving textures, as strange percussive rhythms and electronic and industrial noises, fit for a vintage John Carpenter score, flitter past. Watch your footing – some loops nearly hit the three-minute mark as they build and swell. It’s quite the journey.
