Norwegian multi-genre producer Phobium (Henning H. Ottesen) returns to Omnitropic, Ektoplazm‘s downtempo and ambient sublabel, with this elegant work of conceptual space music and deep trance. This is the story of the first manned mission to travel through the immense cloud that surrounds our solar system, the place where comets are born, the Oort Cloud.
Omnitropic begins the year with The Time Is Now by Phobium (Henning Helland Ottesen), an eclectic Norwegian musician already known for his work in the psytrance scene. Here we are introduced to the more nuanced side of Phobium’s sound as this album focuses on the elegant tranquillity of deep ambient and space music. Originally produced more than five years ago, this album is now available for the free enjoyment of all ambient lovers. Strap on your headphones and prepare to be extremely chilled!
Apeiron marks the formal debut of Proton Kinoun (Kasper Weensgaard), a Danish ambient producer, on Ektoplazm’s new ambient and downtempo sublabel, Omnitropic. This album is a mixture of deep drifting soundscapes, beatless ambient atmospheres, thick airy pads, and throbbing, liquid electronic percussion. Inspired by the breathtaking images of our universe captured by the sharp eyes of the Hubble Space Telescope, Apeiron is a meditative exploration of the quickening of life on cosmic scales of space and time. The use of headphones and complete darkness is recommended for a completely immersive listening experience!
