~ DJ Megasoup (Selaroda) ~ Known for creating albums based on themes, this LP is fittingly dark and mysterious... Exotic, hazy electronic excursions that lead to dead ends and more curious corridors. Perfect for taking fantastic voyages inside one's mind.

TheSlowMusicMovement Currently lost without hope of return in the otherworldly Kosmische pulses, gentle percussion & otherworldly drones and comforting tones of the excellent new x.y.r. Labyrinth LP. Check out their other releases as well - these guys are consistently great..

@KillTheBuddha This is truly a labyrinth in which I like to get lost. (or lose myself)

Michael Mueller A quiet, unsettling, deceptively intense experience. One of the purest expressions of dark ambient music out there, I reckon.

What really sets its apart is the nuanced nature of the compositions; the careful, telling repetitions that slowly layer in an out of a dark, foggy atmosphere.
The production is excellent, but every edge is obscured, which gives the album a mysterious, noirish undertone.

Deeply immersive nocturnal music.
Favorite track: Arcana.

St. Petersburg seeker Vladimir Karpov coaxes hushed auras of keys, metronomes, fog, and feeling to evoke hazed and isolated realms, traced in altered states. His latest collection – and vinyl debut – maps the maze at “the bottom of the self,” subterranean consciousness manifested from decaying synthesizer and shadowed pulse: music for fading torchlight. Labyrinth leads through six misty, mystic chambers of dreams, drones, delirium, and phasered percussion, spiraling in slow, sacred arcs, in quest of “the inner world.” Tosya Chaikina’s ghost vocals on “False Angel Lullaby” and “Shadows Of Forgotten Ancestors” bring a whispered hymnal mood but otherwise the LP is ambient and abandoned, obscure meditations along corridors of candlelit runes, “to find the right path, to find the true answer.”
