The Space Where She Was: PDX tape

The Space Where She Was: PDX tape

Best known for creating an astonishing amount of breakcore and industrial techno as Bombardier, the 13th Hour, Kamphetamine, and many other names, this is Jason Snell’s venture into sparse, spacious ambient and downtempo. A little bit of a surprise considering how dark and pummeling (and often dense) most of his work is, but what isn’t really a surprise is how incredible it sounds. It equally embraces dark and light, hope and sadness. Some of it could almost fit on a Kompakt Pop Ambient compilation, but it might be the bleakest track on there. And yet it’s nothing like “dark ambient”. Whatever it is, it’s a stunning meditation on loss. (Happy birthday Jason!)
