Camryn Marquez I had to struggle with this record to appreciate its atmospheric nuance. Once I was able to slow down and take this record in, holistically, I saw its beauty and depth. I'm not going to be cliché and say "few ambient records are so expansive" or whatever, but this record is a treasure trove of peaceful bliss and serenity and one of the most satisfying, in this category of music, that I've heard.

Nathan Duin A genuinely great record and I never say that lightly. I had been patiently waiting for a full length since the EP and this is my reward.

Credit where credit is due to Room40 as well. Nicely done to all involved. Favorite track: By Sea.

about

LP1 is the debut edition from London based artist Mirko Vogel.

Recorded across almost three years, the record is a sprawling mass of ambient texture, remote harmony and uneasy pulse. Initially born out of extended periods of intense touring with Cut Copy, the earliest recordings were an antidote to the nature of repetition on the road. In the blur of travel, Mirko found a particular pleasure in an attempt at slowing or pausing time through sound. Moments of this hazy slowness have lingered and found their way onto this debut edition.

Following a relocation from Australian to the UK, LP1 began to take on a more distinct character. Whilst working on a variety of film, television and software projects simultaneously, Mirko found his focus shifting. The nature of the recordings began to bend and blur at their edges. Gradually, through a process of subtle iteration the records’ particular shape and colour began to take hold.

LP1 is ultimately a record that compresses time. Each piece has travelled across many territories under various circumstances. With this has come a particular interiority of place. The sound itself creates a moment in which we can place ourselves, it is our insulation, as it was for Mirko, from the exceedingly aggressive pace of change we find ourselves in each day.
