Debut release from a self described synthaholic from Winnipeg. Unicity utilises an impressive setup of analogue gear ranging from the epic jupiter 6 and MS-10 to spring reverbs and analog delays to create his short and bitter sweet ambient pieces. Aside from using a room full of powered up machines to keep him warm in the Canadian winter months, his analog compositions are an effort to echo his feelings and experiences in life.

A charming suite of six ambient miniatures from Unicity, making a debut appearance on the Analog Quadrant. We could reference a ton of ambient practitioners but these are just pure and simple beatless synthesizer vignettes that express something that just can't be spoken. Quite lovely.
