one of pitchfork’s top 50 ambient albums of all time, this reissue comes bundled with bonus album ‘man with a movie’ providing even more peerless soundworlds for your buck.

Residing in Norway, near the Arctic Circle, Jenssen has found the focus to slowly and steadily create a self-contained aural universe, made up of reflective and immersive sound sculptures. ‘Substrata’ marked Jenssen's embarkation towards an intensely minimal style, with stunning results. "The best ambient album I've heard in an ice age, an album of terrifying, desolate and all-enveloping beauty" – melody maker, “The careful balance of background and foreground invites the listener to go exploring inside the sound, and the free-associative sensory flow distills the music’s lysergic potential to a purity rarely encountered in any genre.” - pitchfork
