‘Awake’ is a soundtrack for roaming around vast city landscapes between late night and early morning. A lone wolf observes the scenery and watches over people, their heads low, on the path home to sleep. Inspired by 1980’s movies, drone and video game soundtracks, Rob Orme aka submerse returns with an update to his signature sound.

‘Awake’ comes out worldwide on limited vinyl (including download code) from Project Mooncircle & limited edition CD including a bonus track via flau.

アンビエント・ベース・ミュージックの若き才能submerseによる新作EPは、都市の日暮れから夜までを描いた前作「Stay Home」に引き続き、眠りに落ちた都市に朝の光が差すまでの静かな時間を美しく綴ったチルアウト作品。
