Hybrid Palms – Pacific ImagePosted: September 9, 2016
[ Sounds of the Dawn, 2016 ]
Russian New Age acolyte Konstantin Skolnikov takes a rich and nuanced take on the most hippie genre ever with his Hybrid Palms project. On Pacific Image, a cassette released on American ambient label Sounds of the Dawn he brings together the most flowery and shimmery out of oldschool synths, enhances it with distant field recordings of paradise rainforests and a heavy influence of 80’s Japanese New Age/ambient school (think Midori Takada meets Iasos and you’re pretty close). Each track is like a journey to the next island in the tropical archipelago in the middle of a nameless ocean. Deeply meditational. Recommeded!
