Wonderful combination... the atmosphere on this album is just amazing. Peaceful, drifting soundpaintings, as if you’re watching a scene on canvas and feel as if you want to step into that painting... New age, ambient? I don’t care how you call it but it’s a collaboration I would love to have more from! Luckily I knew Laraaji’s work (of course..), so that brought me to this great album.. & thanks for the physical release as well!!

This has become one of the most important albums of my life. It’s essence is indescribable. Every sound from the start of the record through the end is placed delicately and with care. The album cover is by Julie Mehretu. It’s absolutely an incredible release for which I shall be eternally grateful. Aniket
