Ben Lukas Boysen - Clarion

Available:Out of Stock

    Following on from his 2020 album, Mirage, Ben Lukas Boyson is back to prove once again that he's up there with the greatest contemporary classical-electronic crossover composers of all time. The Berlin-based studio and on-stage wizard has crafted six track that straddle strange, otherworldly places that are both calming and exploratory, old and new, pre-existing and still waiting to be discovered.

    The original work here is incredibly strong, and fans will also look favourable at the bonus material, with three very special remixes on offer. Icelandic techno duo and Erased Tapes label mates Janus Rasmussen and olafur Arnalds steps into the mix for a deep, trance-infused house proggy workout. Legendary Scottish post-rock troupe Mogwai turn 'Love' into something truly serene and atmospheric, low slung, pared back breakbeat underpinning synth refrains, while .Hyperdub producer Foodman opts to up the percussive ante.
