It's amazing what you stumble across on Discogs. Lovely tune and really quite laid back. Just keeps moving forward; play it on the move, in the car, on the tube. A sweeping beauty, and just one to drift away from the hustle and bustle. Enjoy.

Utterly divine music...

At the time this was released I was deeply into tech nastiness and clinical minimalism. I'd kinda written the smoother / mellower d&b off for being weak & slightly ineffectual, but this release totally knocked me sideways. It's music that goes deeper than I ever thought possible - Future Bound are legendary to me on the strength of this slab of vinyl alone.

The Ephemeris is wonderful, the kind of track that Bukem loved. Simple beat, sweeping strings and a subtle/melodic bassline. For me though, it's Blue Mist that I keep returning to. Once again a smooth straight beat - but the pads and chords are some of the most atmospheric and melodic I've heard in any genre. Woozy, reverb drenched synths and sympathetic strings draw you into a stoned/melancholic soundscape which gives way to a breakdown that (to these ears) is the aural equivalent of coming up on pure MDMA. Washes of orgasmic sound break over the beats - while an anonymous female coos ineffable, wordless lines that only your subconscious can decipher. Free drugs! With no comedown whatsoever.

19 minutes of seminal sound, seek & buy :D
