The two-disc ambient compilation series returns in September.
Volume III follows the ambient series' debut double-pack of selections in 2011 from bvdub and Andrew Thomas, and last year's second entry, which had Loscil and Rafael Anton Irisarri at the helm. According to a press release, "Volume III looks to connect the dots between New York and Berlin," with veteran experimentalist DJ Olive (AKA Gregor Asch) representing the former and dubby techno stalwart Deadbeat (AKA Scott Monteith) the latter.
All the tracks here are previously unreleased and come unmixed, and each artist showcases a bit of his own material, as is usual for the series. Deadbeat bookends his disc with "Laura Solaris" and "Primordian Waves" while highlighting works from producers like Ricardo Villalobos & Max Loderbauer, Tobias., Thomas Fehlmann and Pole. DJ Olive fits in his "One Day Old" and a digital bonus track from Multipolyomni, his collaboration with Ignacio Platas, among efforts from Phil Niblock, Fennesz, Oren Ambarchi, the Platas alias Once11 and more.
