Sundaze 1

Hello, Sundaze, a term i used for some compilations i made 5 years ago, it is defacto more then strict ambient, IDM or even chill out though these certainly fit the format, relaxing and introspective, mostly instrumental music.

Bola - Soup ( 98 ^ 127mb)

Darrell Fitton is an electronic musician from Manchester, England. Most of his work is recorded under recording monikers Bola and Jello, released primarily on Skam Records. In 1995 he returned, but with the now more familiar Bola moniker releasing the Bola 1 12" on Skam Records.
Fitton displayed the same style of chrome-dipped melodic techno adhered to by many Warp artists, his subsequent Bola material focused in on a heartier, less accessible aesthetic. His self-titled Skam EP combined vaguely funk-fueled rhythms with harsh, austere synth textures and almost industrial-grade distortion. "Aguilla" was an extremely limited-run three-track seven-inch released by Skam in 1998. Two months following appeared Soup, Fitton's long-awaited LP debut. An impressive synthesis of the machine-beat ambiance of post-techno with warm, wistful analog soul, Soup sounded familiar more than dated, and served as an impressive summing up of the formal qualities of dance music utterly uninterested in the dance floor. In addition to his Bola releases, Fitton loaned his production chops to the first 12-inch by Warp artists Autechre under their Gescom guise, and is rumored to serve as Skam's in-house engineer.
A rare set of 3 EPs called Shapes was released in 2000, pressed at only 300 copies; in September 2006, it was remastered and reissued in greater numbers by Skam, adding three bonus tracks. In 2001 he released "Fyuti" , 3 years later "Gnayse" and again 3 years on his latest album Kroungrine (originally thought to be named Waknut) was released last June . Steady as he goes every 3 years a Bola..
