Huron :: The Other Side of Reality (The Remixes)

The Other Side of Reality (The Remixes) is a must have remix collection, one that combines Huron’s original post-industrial audible strands and re-configures them into what feels more like an extended Version 2.0.

Winter is ahead, and the twelve tracks on Oxycanta III will go well with the cold gray days. The most narrative-driven and crystallized chapter of the three.
