The American producer Aarktica publishes a real rare gem: his latest work “Gymnopédie No. 1” is pure poetry. A melancholic and romantic track that creates a unique atmosphere thanks to a skilful artistic vision.
Aarktica is the ambient/atmospheric project of Jon DeRosa, who has been releasing a diverse catalog of music (with a revolving lineup of collaborators) under this guise since 1998.
Aarktica’s audio explorations span decades and include a wide-range of styles, straddling shoegaze and ambient, jazz and drone, and most recently immersed in deep, meditative sounds for cosmic journeys.
