A new guest artist (familar perhaps to some of you from previous netlabel releases) known as 'NC Thompson'. A purely ambient four track ep, concentrating on the piano solo to bring the tracks together.
Starting with 'Listen, they whisper' - a pleasing journey built on the arpeggios of the piano with subtle harshness brought in, in the form of a pad. Next, Shades of grey is a classic ambient track in the vein of early Sven Vath and Global Communication, with swirling textures complementing the great piano lead throughout.
The city at the edge of the world and Upon white walls go hand in hand as an epic ending to this ep, Bladerunner massiveness mixed in with delicate melodies and chimes. A great ambient ep to chill you out after the previous release from Aleksi.
Wow. I mean, this is absolutely genius music. Here I am, sitting and programming and bam: tears for no reason. I'm not the kind to cry easily (manly man and all that) but Shades of Grey got me. Very much looking forward to your future work.

The EP play's out like an Impressionist painting, full of vibrant colours and tonality. Parts of it will feel as if you have been swept away into the horizon, full of energy! While other times you will be wondering in awe at the vast airiness. All in all, you will feel something beautiful that you just can't put your finger on, but the greatest thing about these tracks however is the good usage of piano keys and melodies that give it substance. This isn't just some run of the mill ambient piece, this is art! Whatever it is you envision as you listen to this EP, I promise Mr. Thompson will deliver.
