Richard Gürtler Jacob and Devin provide a very fresh blend of ambient tunes precisely enriched by a large dose of natural sounds. These air waves are tranquilly floating, but on many occasions are spiced by fragile experiments and ventures, but always with a highly mesmerizing impact. "The Vivid Unmapped" is definitely a top quality release from this talented duo excelling at textural richness, elaborateness and distinctiveness!!! And big thanks also to DataObscura for bringing us this thrilling ambience!!!

Fresh, free-flowing immersive dreamscapes in a minimal contemporary style. Rich with details, textures and treatments, The Vivid Unmapped also exhibits a rare delicacy throughout its various moods and sonic excursions. If you enjoy music like Entia Non and offthesky you are in for a real treat.

"What started out as a collaborative experiment quickly transformed into something much larger. As we continued to work together we became more and more comfortable with the project, allowing the album to take on a beautiful lush environment filled with non-conflicting sounds even with the presence of multiple tracks of field recordings, guitars, synths, piano, effects, and more. The idea of sleep, dreaming, and hypnagogic states soon became a focus and direction for the project, with the songs representing many of our oneiric feelings." Jacob Newman and Devin Underwood
