TOP 10 ambient releases of 2015 (by Simon Heath)

By Dec 30,2015

7. Apócrýphos, Kammarheit, Atrium Carceri – “Onyx”

Simon Heath: “It feels odd putting an album on here that I was a part of myself, but I would be lying if I said I had not listened to this album a lot this year. This is the most natural collaboration I’ve ever been a part of, with Kammerheit and Apocryphos both being on the same page all the time. No inflated egos, no problems, just pure passion from everyone involved. I think this album will stay with me for a very long time and it would come as no surprise that we are all pre-planning for a followup.”

The “Onyx” collaboration album unites 3 veteran producers in the genre, Apocryphos, Kammarheit and Atrium Carceri. The signature analogue darkness of Kammarheit is combined with the layering of Apocryphos and the rhytmical and isolated pianos of Atrium Carceri. This album was created by cross linking 3 studios in Oregon (US), Pennsylvania (US) and Umeå (Sweden). It took over 3800 lines of studio notes to finalize the album.

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
