Passing by: Alveol, Altus & The Green Kingdom

Alveol – No Point In Holding On

If there’s one label out there who’s sound I could pinpoint a mile off, it’s Dewtone. That’s not to say they are predictable, but more that everything they put out is right on point for me; warm, melodic and dubby – especially this man Ludvig Cimbrelius, aka Alveol. His latest album ‘No Point In Holding On’ is similar to his previous works as Purl (yes, that brilliant Purl and Deflektion album) and equally as addictive. Available to buy digitally here.


Altus – The Sidereal Cycle 4

Looking back now, it’s hard to believe I haven’t featured Altus on ASIP yet (apart from in my Modyfier mix). Free Floating, (Altus’ label) have featured, but it looks like i’ve been missing four amazing pieces of work by Altus up until now. His Sidereal Cycle’s are now four-parts strong and all equally as brilliant. This is what I like to call ‘classic’ ambient music, with very little immediate structure but an overarching sense of direction amongst some beautiful instrumental improvisation. You can download Sidereal Cycle 4 here, with links to all previous versions too.


The Green Kingdom – Dustloops: Memory Fragments

Some more warm-fuzzy goodness that believe it or not, isn’t on Dewtone, but instead on the equally brilliant SEM label. If you like the above Alveol, or even slow, melodic ambient dub-techno that the likes of Segue has been putting out recently, then you’ll love this recent effort byThe Green KingdomDownload / purchase limited edition CDR here.
