In the last few years, the lines between ambient and electronic have been closing in. Ambient music requires long sustained tones of peace and tranquility while electronic (when handled by a good DJ) transitions tracks one to the other for a whole experience. Wolfgang Voigt continues to break boundaries by combining these two forms in clever, unique ways that feel hallucinatory even to electronic fans looking to expand beyond dance beats. Rausch breaks the cycle of his previous albums of individual tracks that play off one another and instead delivers one epic piece of long, hypnotic drones and subtle drum machines that wash over you completely. Playing this loud, you're sucked away into repeating motifs that send you into a dreamlike state as they come-and-go and return with new variations. This feels closer to the work of the late Johan Johansson with how it gives synthetic sounds the same level of richness and depth that a symphony orchestra could only get. It's an absolutely unique album that demands a certain level of attention as it shuts off the world around you and sends your mind spinning into the ether.
