GBV ROX Dope, dope, dope. So many great ideas, such crisp, lush sound design. I could listen to this stuff allllll day. Sometimes I do. Easily my favorite artist I've discovered on Illuminated Paths (well, this and Jordan Anderson). Favorite track: Jubilee.

about

IP-332

This is the first volume in a series that represents Gabriel's body of work recorded during the years of 2003-2009.
These tracks have been culled from a variety of sources and remastered. Gabriel has hand picked a collection of works from an archive of material that contains upwards of 100 tracks. The source projects are the embodiment of an aesthetic that has its roots in Gabriel's love for old tape recorders and record players.
As a child, Gabriel spent many hours experimenting with recording devices and has a love for the artifacts that come from old electronics, radios and the like. He combined this with his passion for sound effects and synthesizer tones that were so prevalent in the music he was exposed to as a young person growing up in the 80's. The end result is a sound that is saturated with low fidelity elements, beds of noise, home made field recordings from his trips to the shore and retro synths. All glued together with downtempo beats and ambient pads.
