Quick Review of Biosphere – Patashnik 2
I am about halfway through the album as I am writing, but so far so good =) It seems like he went for more desolate versions of tracks on the actual release back in 1994. Most of the tracks seem to have more drums compared to the 1994 album also. I’m actually preferring some of these versions! Novelty Waves and The Shield were always favourites on the original album and I am pretty impressed with the versions marked v.1 on this album. Some pretty up-tempo bass drums on a lot of these tracks, I would consider this Ambient Techno for sure rather than plain Ambient.
Personally, I would love if Geir Jennsen did a similar release except based around the 1997 Substrata album, but all in all awesome stuff here on this release! Happy listening =)
