Travel In Peace
Travel In Peace (LP + insert)
Cat: AI 18. Rel: 11 Mar 20
Ambient/Drone
  1. Part One (20:59)
  2. Part Two (20:56)
Review: Following the death of his one-time Chi Factory partner J.Derwort in February 2019, Hanyo van Oosterom went back to Patmos, the magical island where they once recorded their most famous works, armed with some of the artefacts and hand-built instruments they'd collected together. While there, he made the field recordings and musical sketches that form the backbone of "Travel In Peace", Oosterorm's emotional final album as Chi Factory. Poignant, atmospheric, melancholic, dreamy and otherworldly with a genuine sense of time and place (you can almost smell the surrounding flora and fauna), the album's two lengthy tracks - collages of interlinked sketches and recurring musical motifs - are fittingly fantastic. As curtain calls go, we can think of few better.

The Bamboo Recordings
The Bamboo Recordings (heavyweight vinyl LP + insert)
Cat: AI 05. Rel: 17 Aug 16
Ambient/Drone
  1. Part One (17:24)
  2. Part Two (17:32)
Review: Amongst ambient aficionados, obscure 1980s outfit The Chi Factory - a collaboration between Jacobus Derwort and Hanyo van Oosterom - has a cult following. While the duo went their separate ways in 1987, Derwort continued to work on tracks, which fused field recordings taken in far-flung locations around the world, with indigenous instrumentation and his innate ability to craft mood-altering soundscapes. The Bamboo Recordings offers the first chance to savour those previously unheard mid-to-late-80s tracks; while they've been remixed for release, they remain as trippy, inspired and intoxicating as you'd expect. Akin to a humid saunter through thick Mangrove swamps, the album feels like a long lost, tropical partner to The KLF's Chill Out.

Bamboo Music (heavyweight vinyl LP + insert)
Cat: AI 15. Rel: 06 Aug 19
Ambient/Drone
  1. Dream/Dron Sax/Desert/Africa/Rioja/A View/Eleven (19:25)
  2. Continue/Moments/Swamp/Lion/Seagull (19:37)
Review: Astral Industries have shaped a sizable portion of their catalogue around the work of The Chi Factory, and so it continues with this release from core member of the Dutch group, Jacobus Derwort. "Bamboo Music" gathers together some of the music Derwort released on tape back in 1987 along with other unearthed curios, all stitched together into the mystical trip that defines all Chi Factory releases. This is Fourth World voyaging for the deep divers, an evocative delight from imagined lands steeped in organic warmth and cosmic mysticism, and we should be very thankful Astral are on hand to do the fine job of pressing it to wax, not least in those fantastic Theo Ellsworth sleeves.

Dots (remastered)
Dots (remastered) (double 12")
Cat: AI 14. Rel: 09 Jul 19
Ambient/Drone
  1. Friendly Cortex (6:34)
  2. Dots (12:49)
  3. Seaweed (9:50)
  4. Spinout Segment (12:27)
  5. Stain (Dot) (5:53)
  6. Dense (5:51)
  7. Tonic Edge (14:18)
Review: Uwe Schmidt - he of Atom Heart, Atom TM and Senor Coconut fame - has used an insane number of aliases over the years, so you'd be forgiven for not knowing about the sole album he produced as Dots. It first appeared on CD way back in 1994 and has long been considered something of a slept on classic by '90s ambient fans. Here it appears on vinyl for the very first time courtesy of Astyral Industries, a label that knows a thing or two about unearthing forgotten ambient treasure. Stylistically, there are hints to some of Schmidt's other work - a dub bassline here, an abstract motif there - but for the most part the becalmed and beguiling soundscapes have more in common with the work of German ambient legend Pete Namlook.

In A Garden Of Eden (reissue)
Cat: AI 11. Rel: 19 Sep 18
Ambient/Drone
  1. Cloud Structure (5:06)
  2. Ambient To Be Here (7:59)
  3. Dawn Chorus (5:12)
  4. In A Garden Of Eden (13:43)
  5. Reentry (6:55)
Review: Last year, Astral Industries dived into the back catalogue of obscure ambient explorer Heavenly Music Corporation (AKA film and TV composer Kim Cascone) to present the first vinyl release of superb 1995 album "Lunar Phase". Here, they offer the same treatment to 1993's "In A Garden of Eden", Cascone's first solo release. It, too, is something of an overlooked classic, albeit one whose inspirations were more pastoral and natural than the stargazing Lunar Phase. The set is notable not only for its Pete Namlook-esque use of dreamy, elongated chords, but also for the presence of hyponotic, Global Communication style melodic movements and Cascone's liberal use of sound effects and field recordings, which bring to mind the KLF's legendary ambient house album, "Chill Out".

Alterazione
Alterazione (gatefold double 12")
Cat: AI 19. Rel: 09 Apr 20
Ambient/Drone
  1. Iniziazione (18:25)
  2. Rituale (12:24)
  3. Metamorfosi (12:35)
  4. Evocazione/Contatto/Risveglio (17:23)
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").

Bioluminescence
Bioluminescence (heavyweight vinyl LP)
Cat: AI 16. Rel: 16 Oct 19
Ambient/Drone
  1. Track 1 (19:02)
  2. Track 2 (19:11)
Review: Another month, another essential release from Astral Industries. The label's latest missive comes from DeepChord man Rod Modell and friend Walter Wasacz's Shorelights project, a partnership that has previously resulted in two fine albums of "soft noise and groovy ambient techno". Their latest missive comprises of two lengthy and undeniably immersive tracks that combine atmospheric field recordings (babbling brooks, crackling radio static etc.) with heavily processed electronic textures, slow-burn synthesizer melodies and chords so enveloping you could probably use them as a blanket. It's hard to get a handle on just how seductive and soothing the album is from the brief clips showcased here, but we can guarantee that "Bioluminescence" is a hazy, horizontal treat from start to finish.

Ruckverzauberung Live In London

  4. IV (16:51)
Review: Kompakt main man and ambient maestro Wolfgang Voigt served up some of his finest work yet on the Ruckverzauberung album a couple of years ago. Now Astral Industries treats us to a live recording of said album, taken from Voigt's performance at Hackney venue St Johns Church in March last year. The dark and brooding soundscapes of this modern classical exploration take on a new and dynamic dimension as his immersive compositions of haunting, densely layered strings and sinister swirling pads transport you to another world, behind the mirror. A fine release from Astral Industries.

V3.0-3.9
V3.0-3.9 (gatefold heavyweight vinyl 2xLP)
Cat: AI 20. Rel: 22 Sep 20
Ambient/Drone
  1. One (15:09)
  2. Two (18:51)
  3. Three (16:59)
  4. Four (18:39)
Review: There's real storytelling at work on this rather splendid double vinyl score, whether it's in hints of tropical birdsong, the fluid motion of rhythms built from water, or the waves of breezy synths that seem to blow past (or through) your ears. Everything feels like it's setting a specific scene, conjuring images that are both vivid and abstract - colours acting as characters, and feelings as locations.

Following on from V2.0-2.9 comes the logically titled V3.0-3.9, and the new release picks up where the last left off. Four sprawling tracks running between 15 and 20minutes each, there's density here in spades giving enough depth to throw, or lose yourself in. Despite the scope, though, there's something strangely intimate here, too, meaning quite where you wind up is nobody's business but yours.
