Absolutely breathtaking collection of new age synth gems from Light In The Attic, cementing itself as what is set to be regarded as a legendary compilation...

This mammoth compiled, three years in the making collection from Light In The Attic contains surely some of the most life-affirming sounds to ever emerge from Continental Europe. Much like the highly lauded Soul Jazz Deutsche Elektronische Musik volumes, (The Microcosm) portrays music that sounds like it could have just fallen out of your most explorative dreams, from Francesco Messina's heartbreakingly delicate Untitled to Popol Vuh's gothic Bruder Des Schattens - Sohne Des Lichts (Abridged) that is set to haunt us for many nights to come.

Visionary Music in every sense of the meaning.
