Originally circulated among a small group of chillout DJs, the LP is getting picked up by Safe Trip 26 years later.
The 26-year-old LP failed to make much of a splash outside of a small circle when it came out, the label says, but it's now considered a lost classic of the ambient house era. Trans-4M was the duo of Stefan Van Elsen, a club and radio DJ on the Belgian scene since the 1980s, and his brother Dimitri, a jazz pianist.
Sublunar Oracles, their first album, was inspired by the ambient house and chillout sound of acts like The Orb and The KLF. There's a conceptual angle to LP, the label explains, though they've chosen to let the public figure it out rather than explain the narrative themselves.
Listen to "Dencity."
