“Ambient Archive” is a backlog compilation by Daniel Segerstad, aka Sync24, containing unreleased tracks from 1996-2002. It showcases the early, rather raw and unpolished sketches that later on would lead to more mature, deepened and carefully moulded ambiences on his solo-albums.
The opening track “Silence” or the concise “Spoon” are good examples of this. But Daniel also presents some more rhythmic-oriented pieces on this release such as the “Quad”, “Nevermind” and “Return”. These all have a certain minimal touch, though the flat rhythms are the weakest part. The airy, atmospheric soundscapes of “M42” or are more up my alley, while the first groovy up-tempo movements surface on “IISO”.
I think this is one for the collectors of Sync24 only.
