Boreal Taiga started as an experiment in the ambient / downtempo realm around the year 1998. Founded by Linc Belt industrial enthusiast, Jimde, Boreal Taiga reflects his love of experimental music and ambient of which it has progressed further then imagined. From the hills of Los Angeles County, Jimde moved to Seattle Washington after having first fallen in love with the Pacific Northwest in 2002. thus obtaining his goal and desire to be closer to Alaska and the arctic north. In 2008, Jim made a decision to move to Norway, 250 miles above the arctic circle. Living in the arctic for more then 6 years, Jim spent more time on deeper music, exploring ambient sounds merged with binural arctic field recordings influenced by the beauty and stark landscapes of Norway. At this time he met Dave Luxton of Wayfarer Records, Olympia, WA by submitting a demo. Dave upon hearing the demo, signed Boreal Taiga and released his first acclaimed album “Isopectic Isotac” in CD and digital forms. From there, 7 more full length albums would be released through Wayfarer Records.
Traveling to Alaska, Norway and Canada and exploring the wilderness and far reaches of the cold north, the music advanced with deeper influences.
Boreal Taiga has found it’s roots and now has a history to be included in many live sconcerts, outdoor festivals across the USA and the first few of Europe’s electronic festivals, we can see a rise in Boreal Taiga’s goals.
