The beautiful beats and amazing voice samples just sets it apart for the rest of the genre’s for me, maybe it’s due to my chill persona but i think the main reason is my…
David Laake is a brilliant electro and techno musician from Sweden, known for his highly complex patterns and structures. But in this track he explores more textural areas and delivers this great and slightly dark Ambient piece.
