Hashtronaut is the artist name of UK-based synthesist/guitarist Michael Daniel. His fifth album “The Lambda Variant” comprises two lengthy pieces of 26 and 24 minutes each, both heavily influenced by the Berliner School style of Klaus Schulze.
The title track starts out smoothly with bell tones and repetitive motivs, ending up in nice enigmatic shapes and sequencer patterns with an unhurried synth solo hovering over it.
“The Lambda Variant” was re-released in 2007 on cd-r through the EEMC-label with a different cover, but meanwhile the recording has also become available as download through MusicZeit.
