Boreal Taiga’s Music For The Drive On Rv83 album takes us to those far arctic roads in Northern Norway, Troms community/county. Above the arctic circle, these roads reveal stunning views of high peaks, flowing ice rivers, deep oceans, thick snow, tunnels, bridges and roads, all connected to help with the deep drive journey. This album is not ambient in the typical sense, rather exploratory downtempo with experimental and dub ambient drone leanings. Much like the previous release, E10, Boreal Taiga continues the path to a more ethereal journey, with less fluff and more deepness in chillout.

With this new release, Boreal Taiga has utilized older material never released. Re processed, re imagined, these tracks bring us up to date on the very now via the near future. On this journey, we created a more deeper chill out experience using frequencies, binaural field recordings, subtle magikal body tone switches and a unique numerical flowchart of sound. We hope you, the listener/participant, will gain something from this sound experience, whatever you choose.

The album will be available on all major online music platforms. Released exclusively through Wayfarer Records. Enjoy the drive.

Honored to have one of my tracks on an amazing video from the 2014 Midnight Sun Festival in the Lofoten islands area of northern Norway. Truly an epic event.

The track “Barentsburg” on the Svalbard album was used.
