Ekca Liena is an alias of Daniel W J Mackenzie which concentrates on the celestial, melancholic and sometimes blissful side of ambient music. Over the range of his enchanting, mainly long-form compostions there is a clear influence from ritual psychedelic, noise, doom, post-rock and at times modern classical arrangement. His discography has seen work on a variety of labels including Dead Pilot, Small Doses and Entropy and with an enormous amount of material currently in the works this list is hoped to expand.
Omniiq has been composing sounds for over three decades. From the more conventional classical training in the early years to the freedom of sonic experimentation now, the common thread is a passion for creating. Accidental composition. Chance ambiences. (Un)fortunate soundscapes. Ordinary sounds manipulated beyond recognition. Aural abuse. The journey is all important, the destination will look after itself.

‘Home’ is an album which spans more than 2,000 kilometres, two families and a lifetime of experiences.
Darren Harper and Jared Smyth’s collaborative effort examines the spaces they have shaped as husbands, fathers and community members in the two very different towns of Tallahassee, Florida and Nederland, Colorado.
Although the two men have never met, they have produced an album that explores the most intimate corners of their lives.
Through the sounds of tinkling streams, children drumming, warm guitars and crunching ice, the pair have crafted an intensely personal album, which invites us into the parts of the world they have made their own.
This is an album full of warmth, subtlety and power that explores what it means to call somewhere ‘home’.
