* k o o m, by Maps & Diagrams

Sipping some coffee this dank and cold morning, listening to some new warm sounds from the talented ambient electro-acoustic producer Maps & Diagrams.


I first stumbled upon Maps & Diagrams via Future Sequences “SEQUENCE” series of ambient compilations. The distinctly relaxed feeling struck me right away as something wonderful. A few years later and here I am enjoying this beautiful new 5 track project from this producer.

Though apparently pulled from the artists 2009 catalogue, these sounds are just as fresh as ever, with acoustic vibes weaving in and out of electronic pads and waves. This re-release was done via the Handstitched* label, resulting in a limited run of mini-CD’s in beautiful packaging. This is a highly recommended download, however if you are like me and lack a proper functioning, top-loading CD player, you might want to avoid the mini-CD unless you are a collector!

Remastered digital reissue of the second release on Maps and Diagrams’ Handstitched* label from 2009. * k o o m was released as a limited edition run of 50 mini CD-r and packaged in hand-stitched gatefold, cork sleeves.

Random copies of the CD came with a Handstitched* notepad.
