Put on the circuit in late March was the 99th release - without any of the labels offshoots, that is - in the history of the legendary UK-based Touch imprint. Named "Stator", the album provides us with a split longplay piece crafted by two of the finest names hailing from the Norwegian electronic music scene - Geir Jenssen, better known for being the man behind Ambient legend Biosphere and Helge Sten a.k.a. Deathprod. Together, with four tracks produced by Deathprod and three by Biosphere, they're exploring the warm, mostly organic and beatless realms of Deep Listening Music, creating a sonic environment highly recommended for headphone consumption although Biosphere's slightly tribalistic Ritual Ambient piece "Space Is Fizzy" might also well appeal to advanced dancefloors and surely will be referred to as stunning classic in future times whilst Deathprod's cold'ish closing tune "Optical" is a ten+ minutes masterpiece in terms of Drone / Death Ambient. Recommended.
