Release notes

After releasing 2 EPs "Aeris Iris" and "For One Day", here's the third EP from Reii. Mellow, atmospheric, well-crafted soundscape tracks. Another quality release for coming winter.


Net Label Review
Foot is the Ambient and Chilled section of the "Bump Foot" label. Bump is Techno & House and Foot is chilled. It is a Japanese net label started by one of the staff members of Radio307, a Net Radio station. This is the first release I have heard from "Bump Foot" and I must say I am impressed by the quality. This release is done my a Russian calling himself Reii, have a look at the artist link for more details and his contact information. The Album starts off with an interesting yet well produced track that sets the mood for the rest of the album. Immediately with the second track it moves into the ambient realm filling the audio spectrum with drifting pads and nice melodies and this carries over into the 3rd track as well. The last two tracks drifted a little too far into the pure ambient realm for me. I love ambient and would still recommend these two tracks to any ambient fan who like artists like Brian Eno and Steve Roach. But it might be a bit too spaced out for some of you. Overall its a good release from Bump Foot.
