Paradox Music man Alaska founded the "100% ambient jungle" label Arctic Music in 2006, joining forces with Swedish producer Seba for the imprint's second release. 11 years on the duo have reunited for another trip into deep and spacey D&B territory. On the A-side you'll find "Sandpoint", an intergalactic roller that wraps echoing vocal snippets and fluid electronics around a fuzzy bassline and punchy jungle riddims. The beanbag and incense-friendly party continues on the flip, where "Be With You" sees them reach sparkling, starburst synthesizer motifs, even dreamier vocal snippets, a whisper of jazz sax and some typically bustling breakbeats. It feels like a genuine blast from the past, and that's a good thing; certainly, few make music this magical any more.
