“My music is somewhere between soundscapes and classic songs,” says Axel Willner." From Here We Go Sublime’ is out next month.
The Field is Stockholm’s Axel Willner, a man with his fingers in many ambientish musical pies (he also records as Cordouan, Lars Blek, James Larsson and is a member of the band Speedwax). Dance fans will most know him as a 4/4 Kompakt talent to watch: Last year his tracks as The Field were standouts on the ‘Total 7’ comp and ‘Pop Ambient 2007’, while one track from his 2006 EP ‘Sun & Ice’ made #27 in our Top 30 Tracks of 2006.
The Field’s eagerly anticipated debut artist album ‘From Here We Go Sublime’ includes three singles from ‘Sun & Ice’ alongside seven new cuts, all of which meld pop song structures with ambient textures and clever sampling techniques. A Field 12” single will be released at the same time, though no word as yet from Kompakt as to whether it contains new tracks.
You can preview a number of tracks from the album over at The Field’s MySpace page.
