Steve Roach: Dreamtime Return 2LP
Since its release in 1988, Dreamtime Return earned its reputation as a genuine classic. The magnum opus is one of the most important, widely known and highly respected release in Roach's vast body of work. It serves as an essential benchmark within the electronic-ethno-atmospheric genre. Roach's travels in the Australian outback, along with studies of the Aboriginal Dreamtime, and his desert walkabouts in California were the lifeblood for this recording which even today sounds like a transmission from the near future and the very distant past.

Michael Stearns Morning Jewel (2024 remaster) CD
It's been forty-five years since Michael Stearns released his third cassette, Morning Jewel. Quickly embraced in 1979 by the burgeoning New Age and meditative music market, the album stands as a classic from the early era of Californian ambient artists. It's a sublime sonic monument with two long-form pieces integrating natural sounds and minimal electronics in long quiet movements.

Jeff Greinke Oceanic
Oceanic is undulating ambient minimalism floating upon dreamy, somewhat hazy eddies in a slow-moving stream of wonder. Greinke's 24th album in a 40-year career is created from electronic sounds processed to create complex textures, chords and harmonies. The timbres are distinct, with subtle detail, capturing the ebb and flow of emotional whirlpools. It's a mysterious and beautiful world of sound.
