Back Like Boom // Welsh Netlabel Serein is one of my top five sources for high quality Ambient, not only in the context of Netaudio. It has been silent at Serein for a quite a while, but after a period of hibernation, Serein is back with a new design. Check the “Reintroduction” mix by Huw Roberts.

“Reintroduction” by Huw Roberts (MP3)

Daniel Maze - “Steampunk” (MP3)

Neuf Meuf - “Zul” (MP3)

Herzog - “Perhaps She’d Like To See Me Fall Apart” (MP3)

Huw Roberts, the face behind Serein, is a critical mind that shaped the label’s identity for the last three years, choosing artists and artwork with greatest care. Roberts starts Serein 4.0 with a mesmerizing mix of favourites and unreleased material. Highly recommended if you are digging rich and analogue-ish Ambient music.

For the future, Huw Roberts promises new release by The Inventors of Aircraft, 1000 Hours of Staring (sooo looking forward!) and the Phlow Mag darlings Nest. Website looks clean and beautiful, only the loss of all previously released material is a miss - still, via archive.org, everything remains accessible. Watch this place!
