Two epic ambient journeys from an underrated hero of the underground. Hanyo van Oosterom is a musician and promoter from Rotterdam. He was part of Chi (1984 - 1987), Byzantium (1997 - 1998) and One Cent People since 2002. He has never met Rod Modell (Deepchord) in person, but they have met through music. Story has it that Modell is said to have found an obscure cassette of Chi music and sent it to Astral Industries - which paved the way for the release of 'The Original Recordings' in 2016. Since then, they have exchanged ideas and music. Van Oosterom sent Modell a preview of 'The Kallikatsou Recordings' which he liked it and inspired the idea for a remix of 'Lanterns'. He sent the first sketches to him, but they ended up in the wrong inbox. Months later he responded, apparently saying he loved them so much that they needed to be released. Van Oosterom is said to have used lo-fi approach on these tracks: manipulating the samples, time-stretching, tempo and pitch-shifting, mixing different layers and using effects in addition to field recordings, voices and samples from his early cassettes.
