"Compilation of Dutch electronic artist Michel Banabila focusing on his incursions into otherworldly and imagined realms.
LP1 is a compilation of works spanning over 20 years that acts as a bridge between his earliest work and his contemporary practice.
LP2 is a reissue of his early masterpiece Marilli, a highly sough-after album that acts as both an LSD inspired DIY tribute to Byrne and Eno's Ghosts and a youthful exploration of Banabila's personal background and his experience as a squatter in Amsterdam in the early 80s".

Michel Banabila has also been a member of the Chi, resurfaced on Astral industries.
