"Bleed Air also bounce all over the place with their (again I am not sure) sound, going from introspective and ambient, towards a more robotic, upbeat sound, of wacked out techno beats and then going towards minimal synth."
--- Frans De Waard in Vital Weekly 1252 www.vitalweekly.net/1252.html
This is a mix tape blending dark ambient, playful electronica as well as experimental beat and drone.
A journey into warm, analogue noise, echo and soundscapes, sometimes perhaps resembling a soundtrack for a yet unfilmed low budget sci-fi movie.
When Robot choirs start singing or (broken) analogue circuits and filters start doing what they want, it can get wacky, but we think it always remains pleasant to listen.
Mostly analogue electronic gear, often of the cheaper and not exactly hip kind, and tape effects were used.
It is recommended to listen to each side of the album in one piece. The single Digital release tracks are not mixed, but musically cut - and we've added the side A and B mixed files too. Sounds cooler on the nicely saturated ferro tape though.
bleed Air lives in Cologne, loves his Omnichord OM-27 and his tape echo too.
++OVERSEAS SHIPPING IN PANDEMIC TIMES++
Currently, shipping to all countries in the EU and UK works quite well, with average delivery times around 5-7 work days (within Germany 2 days).
However, overseas shipping to e.g. the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand etc. takes much longer in pandemic times. We've experienced that shipping e.g. to the US in pandemic times can take up to six or even seven weeks, the good news being that never before has a shipment been lost. When in doubt, please just ask before placing an order. All purchases will be shipped asap, i.e. usually not later than 4 days after the order has been placed.
Thanks for your understanding and support. Stay safe!
