Gosh Snobo The whole album is lush and has become one of my favorite lullabies of late, but I especially adore the Versions. The Bokeh effect of submersing the already dreamy melodies in comfort noise is totally transporting.

CleanGreenShirt Huge fan of 36, favorite album is The Infinity Room however this is proving to be an exceptional contender for that spot. Fantastic ambient work that lets your mind breathe featuring soft exploratory pads that blossom, loop, and take their time. His music has been mastered by Rafael Anton Irisarri/Black Knoll Studio, if that's not the ultimate blessing in the contemporary ambient music world, I don't know what is! Favorite track: Changing Faces (Static Places).

Dave Michuda I love this album! It's like the lost soundtrack to Blade Runner 2049. Images of water and dust swirl around in my head with each listen. Favorite track: Inoxia.

Haunted Ghost Listening to this album as the snow swirls in the wind. Completely transportive, a beautiful series of movements full of melancholy and hope as only 36 can deliver. Favorite track: Circuit Bloom.

"It's been 7 years since the last 36 tape release and I am pleased to return to the format for the 'Circuit Bloom' EP. It contains a selection of 6 predominantly piano-based tape loops, exploring the themes of isolation and escapism, through a Cyberpunk-inspired lens. For me, Cyberpunk is about people living on the fringes of society, finding ways to deal with the hardships they face, through the manipulation and exploitation of technology. It's a genre/aesthetic I've always loved and its influence has always seeped into my music." - 36

"Circuit Bloom" serves as a companion to an upcoming 36 album, providing a prelude for what is to come later this year. It's the perfect soundtrack for standing outside the balcony of your high-rise apartment, watching the rain fall onto the city at night.

It is available on limited edition (100 copies) C30 cassette and digital/streaming. The digital release also includes the "Versions" bonus tracks, which are rain-soaked ambient remixes of the original tunes, where the melodies are blurred and the raw atmosphere of each track is brought into focus.
