steve gibbs - adrift (12inch vinyl lp)


ARTIST // steve gibbs
LABEL // injazero (uk)
CAT // inja005lp


Adrift is the beautiful debut album from UK composer-pianist Steve Gibbs. Acting loosely as a reissue of Gibbs's hugely popular Bandcamp release of a similar collection of pieces (2014), this expanded, re-mastered, heavyweight vinyl edition paints a clear picture of a composer mastering his form. That Gibbs's music has already been used in various film, TV, and dance productions, is testament to its immensely evocative qualities. Gibbs has clocked over one million plays on his SoundCloud page and has been recommended on social media by lafur Arnalds, Lowercase Noises, and Fabrizio Paterlini. Passages of soft microsound comparable to Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto's duet albums or Mika Vainio merging with lusher cinema-scapes akin to Clint Mansell and Max Richter. His instrumentation -- piano, strings, gentle electronics, occasional guitars -- is used with a similar sense of vision as Goldmund, lafur Arnalds, Dustin O'Halloran, Stars Of The Lid, and the piano solos of Arvo Prt. 180 gram vinyl. "What just happened!? Emotion and ambience at its best, its very best... I'm overwhelmed... A masterpiece." --Echoes & Dust
