Review: Healing... first arrived in summer 2020, when most of us really needed to break the depression of life in and out of lockdown. Like so much of Barwick's work, these stunning choral moods offered a real sense of solace and refuge through deeply evocative sounds, with the theme of salvation carried throughout the beautiful pieces.

Even the title refers to an internet mantra poking fun at both the comedic and serious apocalyptic images we have all seen during the pandemic, and the possibility of humanity recovering. Initially unveiled as the disconnect between being 'saved' and 'lost' was at its peak, with the first vaccine now approved and light just about visible at the end of the tunnel things look different. But while we have never been closer to a solution, we have never been further from life as it once was, so the message here only resonates more.

Review: 21 years. Twenty. One. Years. Two decades. Who knows how many days (well, we could work it out, but...) Critique our laziness if you will, it doesn't change the fact that quietly, beneath the din of a world driven mad by pandemics and politics, this is a truly momentous occasion. One of many examples why Treviso is Italy's alternative electronic music capital, this is the first LP from the city's pioneering ambient duo Cabaret du Ciel since 2000's Blue Form, and it proves worth the wait.

Of course the pair have never been ones for rushing records. Since gliding onto the scene with 1988's debut full-lengther Solarisation they have only made four albums, including this. As warm and intoxicating as it is filled with suggestions of the unknown, owing as much to the chill out rooms of raves as crystalline minimalistic contemporary classical, we recommend diving right in because the water is perfect.

Review: Jon Collin leaves nobody wondering just how unique his musical vision is across this series of mini-recordings, batched together into two tracks that aren't necessarily coherent wholes, but nevertheless have consistent threads and feelings that persist throughout the movements. At times delicate pianos sound reflective or mournful, in other moments we stand on the peak of an epic electric guitar solo looking out on unfettered wilderness. It's a grand musical journey disguised as relatively minimalistic ambient work.

Putting what you can hear aside for a moment, this is also something of a concept release. Inspired by a Gothenburg performance by Collin, who is based in Stockholm but originally from England, the pre-pandemic gig involved taking old tracks and placing them into a new context, and the same idea has been used here. Rebuilt, rethought and rearranged, to say the finished work is just as original as the originals would be an understatement.

Review: Debut albums don't often reach the heights of this one, which could well be a lost Boards of Canada album such is the richness of its stunning ambient electronic pallet. The mysterious Cult 48 behind the project got people despertae to find out more with this one right from the off: it's cosmically minded with its twinkling keys and lush chords, and rhythm comes from the gently tumbling drums that eventually transport you away from the here and now. Tight jazz drumming stands out on tracks like 'Slowly The Sky Turned Black' while 'On Diesel Verge' is a more textured piece that pairs light with dark.

Review: In 1999, Dutch orchestra Metropole Orkest staged an epic performance in tribute to Brian Eno as part of that year's Holland Festival. Based on 1992 album The Shutov Assembly but also featuring versions of tracks plucked from other Eno sets, the performance featured extraordinary classical translations of some of the ambient pioneer's darkest and most mesmerising works. This CD presents the recording of the performance almost in full, offering up stunning new interpretations of tracks such as 'Triennale' (here rendered as a melancholic, cinematic masterpiece), 'Iced World' from 1997's The Drop (spy movie soundtrack jazz on a grand scale), and mid-1970s favourite 'Another Green World', which provides a sublime, swelling conclusion.

Review: The last time time Juno and Felix K met was on Die Verachtung, another Nullpunkt Germany EP that arrived in February 2020. On the face of it, that pared-back, bordering-on experimental drum 'n' bass shares little in common with this far more abstract collection of work. But dig a little deeper and it's not just the closing dub-tech-bass-ambient closer on last year's release that foretold of this latest effort.

Skulpturen #1-4 is nothing if not left of the standard electronic playing field. There are rhythms and movements happening here, but buried deep beneath strange waves, rushes and blurs of noise - take 'Skulptur #3''s apparent recording of conversations heard on another plane of existence. Drone at its deepest, most subtle and effective, be warned: everything here will be on the throne of your mind palace before you even start to feel it settling in.

Review: For a year, in 2015, Matthew Sage (aka M. Sage) cataloged near-daily recordings made with a very narrow creative constraint; electric guitar and a few pedals, all recorded and mixed directly to cassette 4-track. Eschewing the often complex studio gadgetry and computer editing that he relies on for his primary project, Free Dust became a respite that offered room for technique to fall away and for pure expression to surface. He collected and released more than two-and-a-half hours of this material throughout the year as quarterly digital downloads; this body of work was then re-released as a double-CD in 2019 on his now-defunct label Patient Sounds. Now, Past Inside the Present presents a new collection of Free Dust material, the first proper LP for this project.

Review: Past Inside The Present is an American ambient label based in Indianapolis, with a focus on ambient, ethereal and minimal music by prominent artists from across the globe. Their next one comes courtesy of prolific Spanish producer Pepo Galan from Malaga (El Muelle Records) with Berlin-based choreographer Sita Ostheimer. The pair have collaborated in one way or another since 2015; Galan having composed music for her dance creations, and Ostheimer recording her delicate vocals for several of his solo albums. Ostheimer's evocative vocal delivery is perfectly accompanied by Galan's mellowed neo-classical tones and restrained flourishes of electronics, for an altogether seductive and poignant listening experience.

Review: Since its in initial release in 1997, Zauberberg has often been talked of in hushed terms. It was Wolfgang Voigt's second album as Gas and is now considered the most complete and detailed execution of his now trademark sound - a heady, hazy blend of treacle-think ambient textures, hissing vinyl crackle, faintly foreboding chord sequences and manipulated neo-classical loops. As this welcome reissue proves, what marks it out from later Gas albums is the fact that it's not wholly ambient, with many of Voight's included soundscapes featuring sparse, hypnotic rhythms, most built around subdued, heavily filtered kick-drum patterns. As a result, it's remains a mesmeric and genuinely mind-altering affair.

  4. The Reinvention Of Romance (Sample 3) (34:37)
Review: The Reinvention of Romance, percussionist and composer Sarah Hennies' latest must-check album, started life as a commission from Knoxville duo Two-Way Street (cellist Ashlee Booth and percussionist Adam Lion) to write them, "a very long piece". The finished album ticks that box, stretching 90-mnutes of music - over four sides of wax. Two-Way Street's performance of Hennies' score - which, minimalism style, revolves around repeating patterns that shape-shift every few minutes - is never less than mesmerising, while the composer's own production and mixing adds an extra layer of out-there intrigue. The piece's genius lies in the occasional moments when the percussion and cello patterns meet; at those points, the album becomes a surprisingly harmonious treat.

Review: It doesn't take much imagination to picture Hopkins' delight at positioning 'Light Through The Veins' smack bang in the middle of this album, which he first released in 2008. As rousing, life-affirming and inspiring as anything the producer has made, it arrived at a point when he'd been sharing studios and stages with a diverse range of artists - for example, Brian Eno, King Creosole, David Holmes and Coldplay. By this point he had cemented his status as one of those rare talents whose genre of choice is simply 'music'.

Of course Insides is Hopkins solo, so very much rooted in the post-club dance world he grew out of. Nevertheless, the evidence of his broad mastery is clear as day. Staccato stressed hi hats and sombre keys on 'Colour Eye', the most perfectly heartbreaking piano solo, 'Autumn Hill', and head-nodding dystopian downtempo on 'Wire'. Very good indeed, and very much worth returning to.

Review: Jon Hopkins has released a number of very fine albums over the years, though few quite as good as 2009's Insides. Rooted in his particular brand of atmospheric, melody-driven electronica but more ambitious than anything the producer had previously released, Insides' ten tracks effortlessly combine neo-classical instrumentation and tactile electronic melodies with bold and beautiful nods towards dubstep, '90s trip-hop, vintage IDM, music concrete, grizzly late noughties UK bass, and the shimmering, shoegaze-inspired electronica of Ulrich Schnauss (see the superb 'Light Through The Veins', arguably the album's stand out moment). There are occasional surprising, eyebrow-raising musical moments that switch focus or alter the flow of the album, but they never feel jarring or out of place.

Review: Multi-instrumentalist and composer Naliah Hunter's debut, 'Spells', is a much-needed slice of ambient fantasy. The project began as an "exercise in reclamation" over her own musical motivations, and resulted in a 6-track ritual in which each piece represents a different kind of magic spell.

Like protective water, air and fire charms, Hunter takes on many incantatory roles. She is a vocalist, harpist, and synth player. Her harp, in particular, takes centre stage; the calming wind spell 'Quiet Light', for example, is an embellishment of scale flourishes and dangling chimes.

Hunter likens her studio to an altar, taking ritualistic care to light candles and incense while creating. Like the track 'Talisman' - with sprinklings of midrange tones, relieved breaths and interpretive semi-lyrics - her music is intended for healing. A chunk of the album's proceeds are being given to the Loveland Foundation, which provides therapy for young black women.

Like beautiful but dissolving memories, every track fades out only after around two minutes, like the effusive wispiness of an apprentice wizard's practice. Speaking to KEXP, Hunter noted that her 'spells' had the express purpose of "creating locations away from here"; they are specifically "transportation spells". Fantasy has always been a genre of escape; like a timid fairy or Harry Potter snitch, the EP flits past in a wonderful plume of magic smoke.

Review: Ludvig Cimbrelius has many different aliases to exercise different musical interests, but his work as Illuvia really stands out thanks to its canny blend of jungle and electronica with ambient. Following plentiful digital releases for labels like Hypnus, this marks the first outing on vinyl for Illuvia, finding a natural home on A Strangely Isolated Place. The combination of raging but artfully submerged breakbeats and expansive drone pads is expertly managed here, sounding at once glacial and furiously kinetic. Like the concept of atmospheric jungle taken to the extreme, this is a unique approach to genre fusion that works beautifully.
