"Omnitropic begins the year with The Time Is Now by Phobium (Henning Helland Ottesen), an eclectic Norwegian musician already known for his work in the psytrance scene. Here we are introduced to the more nuanced side of Phobium’s sound as this album focuses on the elegant tranquillity of deep ambient and space music. Originally produced more than five years ago, this album is now available for the free enjoyment of all ambient lovers. Strap on your headphones and prepare to be extremely chilled!"
Released on Omnitropic.com/Ektoplazm.com
in early 2011, now available at bandcamp.
Technical info: This album is meant to be listened to in it's entirety, so you need a player that will play the files without gaps (foobar is a good choice). If you prefer a single file (mp3/flac+cue sheet), you can download it here: omnitropic.com/releases/phobium-the-time-is-now/
