Produced in the winters of 2014 - 2018, 'The Big Chill' is the Manchester-based ambient producer's fourth release, following on last summer's EP 'Under The Same Sky' (handmade compositions entirely using tape loops without the use of any sequencers).

The Big Chill is a vast, cinematic 74 minute journey into glacial arctic soundscapes, combining cut-up wildlife documentaries and field recordings with both generative and traditionally composed sequencing techniques.

Best listened in sequence at low volume preferably on headphones. It's inspired by The Last Ambient Hero's admiration for artists such as Chris Watson, Abul Mogard, Lustmord, Hiroshi Yoshimura, Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement & loscil.
