As it so happens Oscar Thomas van der Knap is out in the forest somewhere this weekend, lost in a "Sea of Green", as Particles prepares his latest Exoplanet EP for release. Following in the footsteps of his latest electronica compositions, the two new originals are lively and organic feats of prolific technical wizardry. The visceral & hypnotic melodies of "Archegonium" are unconventionally composed, while the frenetic & intricate "Antheridium" is thoroughly psychedelic. What exactly did Oscar find in the forest?

James Warren (Baroque/Proton/Olaris/Silk)
Cracking stuff from Exoplanet once more. Beautifully atmospheric and more complex than quantum theory.
Barry Jamieson (Circular Sound Recordings)
Cool ideas. Very fresh sounding.
Dapple Apple (Silk / Particles / Apollo / Highway / Proton Radio)
I have no words. Awesomeness!
Andrew Benson (Black Hole / Particles / Moonbeam Digital)
These sounds transport you to other realities, unreal places and fantasy worlds.
