kleinbl00 broke me last week with a dude who goes by the name Solar Fields. Specifically, the Mirror's Edge (videogame) soundtrack:

There are about 9 things in that sentence which would indicate this is not something I would fall deeply in love with... but I have. Deeply.

That link is 5 hours of amazing ambient electro synth grooviness that is interesting and satisfying ALL THE WAY THROUGH.

Every time you think this one section is just about to get annoying - too ambient, or too heavy, or too digital-sounding - he effortlessly transitions into a variation on the theme that feels like a fresh rush of new blood into your veins...

If you need a quicker entre to him and his style, this live session from inside his Gothenburg, Sweden studio is as visually entertaining to watch, as it is to hear...

I shall forever be indebted to KB for this one, and hereby apologize to anyone else who ever suggested this to me and I didn't listen.

Yesss Solar Fields is amazing. So atmospheric, ethereal. It’s the perfect music for me to bike home to in the dead of night, or to go running, contemplating life. kleinbl00 infected me too.

I used it as my work playlist for an entire day.

Then I listened to it during a long drive with my wife.

Then we played it on Saturday evening, while we were away for the weekend with my brother and sister-in-law... and neither of them are into electronic stuff... and both of them loved, it too.
