ZASTRUGI

A 5 track ambient techno album (56m 8s) — released April 13th 2015 on Glacial Movements

An Iceberg is a large mass of ice detached from a glacier or from a floating platform of glaciers that drifst in the sea. It is in constant motion and most of its mass remains submerged under surface of the water. The goal of this new Iceberg series of releases on Glacial Movements is to describe through techno / dub music this huge mass of ice. Each record release will be produced in a special maxi digipack with images printed and embossed in spot gloss.

The first chapter of this series is "Zastrugi" - the first techno glacial album by Netherworld. It's a wind-eroded, hard-packed snow surface with irregular grooves and sharp ridges that is mostly found in the earth's polar regions as well as on high mountains subject to high winds. The ridges, often appearing like frozen waves, form parallel to the prevailing winds and are usually found on windward slopes. The windward surface is usually rough and has a sand-blasted appearance. The snowy surface is very hard and is difficult to cross by foot or on skis. Netherworld aka Alessandro Tedeschi is also the creator and owner of Glacial Movements Records in Rome, Italy. He published several works on various labels such as Fario, Angle Rec, Umbra, and Taalem, The Wire Tapper Series and Glacial Movements with releases like "Morketid" (2007), "Over the Summit" (2011) and "Alchemy of Ice "(2013) .These were critically acclaimed gems of ambient music.

Written, produced and composed by Netherworld. Co-produced, arranged, mixed and mastered by Matteo Spinazzè Savaris at Jung Studio. Sleeve by Rutger Zuydervelt.

Sounding like an industrially produced blizzard, this is best called glacial techno. Filled with white noise, icy beats and cold synthesizer accompaniments. - BRAINWASHED

One of the most relaxing moments of the year so far was when listening to this album. - SPUTNIK MUSIK

Ok, "Techno Glacial" is now officially a thing. - INK 19

These are the two extremes of an album that is strangely captivating, rather like the beings it describes. - DMC WORLD
