Between Interval :: Legacy (Spotted Peccary Music)

Legacy does not reinvent the genre, but certainly refreshes it in a spellbinding manner. This is space music in its finest form. Lush, liquid, and entirely ethereal. Ten tracks of intoxicating propulsive circular beauty.

Any ambient electronica aficionado who wasn’t asleep during the last thirteen years, certainly heard of Stefan Strand’s Between Interval project at some point. The Swedish musician, producer and composer has released tracks on compilations by the prestigious Ultimae imprint, and including his latest effort, Legacy, five successful albums on the excellent long-lasting Spotted Peccary imprint.

Legacy comes after eight years of silence and marks a highlight point in Between Interval’s career. Years of experience and a lot of hard work have culminated with what feels like his best work to date. He is known for his spacey sound but Legacy takes things to a deeper level in terms of musicality and sound design. The movement of the compositions feels so effortless and natural. Legacy does not reinvent the genre, but certainly refreshes it in a spellbinding manner. Space music is at the peak of its comeback these days; so many artists try to capture and revive that timeless magic from the seventies but end up with recycled boring outcomes. Legacy is the real thing within genre districts full of recycling. It manages to capture and revive that timeless magic from the seventies in an original enticing way. Elements of Berlin school, drone and electronica float elegantly together and occasionally flirt seductively with dub techno flavors.

This is space music in its finest form. Lush, liquid, and entirely ethereal. Ten tracks of intoxicating propulsive circular beauty. Let’s hope we won’t have to wait eight more years for the next Between Interval gem.

Legacy is available on Spotted Peccary.
