aleccritten This is some of the thickest but mellowest dub techno I've heard. It definitely has a cool winter vibe around it. Truly unique! Favorite track: Shape I.

In February, South Carolina was very unexpectedly covered in ice and snow for over a week. Being a sub-tropical zone, this was highly irregular, and as such, I was effectively "snowed in", hoping that we wouldn't lose power. Thankfully, we didn't, and what followed was a sporadic recording session inspired by the blanketed white neighborhood outside. The reduction of my rural surroundings to nothing more than lines on empty whiteness, and the quiet that came along with that, was really something to meditate on. It was a nice change to have forced on us for a little while, though I will fully admit to getting pretty stir-crazy by the end.

Snow Vessel is an iced white equivalent to the summer's Ocean Lion template. Organ pedal bass, drones made of equal parts orchestral sampling and synthesis and crumbly taped-up drum machines are what comprises the special hour long mixture of isolation and fascination. A deep and imagined exploration of wintery sonic sculptures and incidental forms obscured by the snow.
