'20 Years of The Best Sounds From the Ground' by Sounds From the Ground.
Celebrate two decades and eight album releases with the remastered 20 Years of The Best Sounds From the Ground. Sounds From The Ground, - their remastered eighth Waveform release '20 Years of The Best Sounds From the Ground.'
Their debut album, 'Kin' came out on Waveform in 1996. The duo's second Waveform album, 'Terra Firma, ' released in 2000, helped secure Sftg as a satisfying, downtempo UK musical force. Billboard magazine called it 'consistently engaging' and like all the Sftg titles, it continues to be enthusiastically received. In 2004, Nick and Elliot returned to their roots with their third Waveform title, 'Luminal.' A spacious and sometimes gritty release with contributions from pedal steel guitarist BJ Cole, vocalist Rachael Calladine, Canada's talented throat singer and Bjork contributor Tanya Tagaq Gillis, dub maestro Dillinger and up and coming UK vocalist Taz. CDBaby described Luminal as 'less lounge and more fat and dirty.' In 2006 Sftg took things to new heights with their fourth Waveform release 'High Rising' - more fresh sounding and widely acclaimed ambient, dub, trip hop and chilled back electronic musical styles. In 2008 we proudly released their fifth Waveform title, their evocative, shimmering work 'Brightwhitelight.' In 2010 Sftg took us on yet another exacting journey through 'The Maze and in 2012 they expanded our horizons and introduced us to a 'Widerworld.'
The year 2014 marks the release of '20 Years of The Best Sounds From the Ground' and spotlights their best remastered tracks and most engaging music from their first twenty years!
