There is one theme with dark ambient releases that tends to produce masterworks: post apocalyptic concept albums. The latest in a row with False Mirror's Derelict World and Tholen's Neuropol is 2145 by Sabled Sun.
Only now it was that I discovered a new label named Cryo Chamber, founded 2012 by Simon Heath who is also the man behind Sabled Sun. He might be better known by his older project Atrium Carceri. One thing notable about the label is that it's newer releases are available as 24 bit FLACs. A real progress, I think: With this dynamics range it is no longer necessary to use compression in the mastering process beyond the natural dampening of air. Anyway, the sound of 2145 is high standard even on a 16bit DAC. Can't wait to listen to it in my studio!
One by one, I will download the other Cryo Chamber releases. The sequel 2146 is already on the stream. Expect to hear more from Sabled Sun soon on this channel!
Vol. 4 will be reserved for C3S artists. Estimated release not before 2016.
From the 30 projects that have expressed their interest, twelve have actually managed to register a user account till 30th of June (the deadline) and got access to the restricted forum area where we will brew the comp. (If I forgot one, please send me a message!). The projects are:
