James Clements leaves the drum & bass behind for a new full-length on Silent Season.
James Clements, better known as ASC, will release an ambient album later this month called The Light That Burns Twice As Bright.
The album shows Clements continuing to push the limits of his own style. His usual forte is drum & bass, but even there he rejects the status quo in favor of "the Autonomic sound," i.e. the open-ended style defined by D-Bridge and Instra:mental's erstwhile podcast series—or as Clements puts it, "drum & bass that doesn't sound like drum & bass." On The Light That Burns Twice As Bright he leaves the drums behind altogether, with ten compositions of droning ambiance. The record will be his first on Silent Season, a label whose sound is inspired by its secluded home in the rain forests of Vancouver Island.
