Ascension by Hermetic

With roots in Brisbane's Hip Hop, IDM & Progressive House scenes, Hermetic (aka Jed Elmer), moved back to his childhood home of Rainbow Beach, Queensland, Australia in 2009.

Life, Wife, Kids and Waves have chilled out the vibes a bit from those early days, bringing some peace, harmony and transcendence to this rides through hyperspace.

Come on a journey through an electronic soundscape of big beats, fluttering arps, thick synths and an epic wall of sound experience.

With influences from Aphex Twin to Devin Townsend; The Beatles to Bjork, it’s a bit hard to pigeon hole any particular genre for this release, it’s a musical call to adventure, to somewhere unknown but somehow familiar.
