Constellation Tatsu unveils summer batch, shares tracks from Liai, OCA, poemme, and Mike Nigro & Andrew Osterhoudt

For many of you, this summer has been the opposite of relaxing: oppressive heat waves all over the world have us finding refuge in air-conditioned spaces; wild fires are burning in the western United States; we still have a game show host running our country. It goes without saying that I’ve been doing extra “Serenity Now” relaxation sessions since July!

Well, you can trade in that new age mumbo jumbo for some real deal New Age/Ambient/Chill-Out tapes through the good folks at Oakland, CA’s Constellation Tatsu. The varied sounds and styles are presented from Liai (Chicago-based Lo Bise), OCA (a collaboration between producer and musician Yo van Lenz and artist Florian T M Zeisig ), poemme (Cleveland, OH’s Angela Klimek), and Mike Nigro (Oxtail Recordings and the group Aviary) & Andrew Osterhoudt (RVNG Intl. employee and Channeling).

In this four-tape batch, you get:

• “daytime-oriented drones”

• “micro/macro/micro observation of energy and movement”

• “pieces inspired by Minimalist composition, techno and ambient”

• “sampling strategies working with looped segments, automation, pitch, timbre, speed and mapping”

WOW! And the best part is that all of these cassettes are available today, so no wait is required if you’re feeling the sonic libations below. Just head here to order your copies, click “play” down below to sample some of the goodness down below, and get ready to dig deep, zone hard, and embrace the positive vibrations from this chilled out quartet.
