Albion is the 3rd part of Mist in the corners trilogy by Yair Etziony, and the oldest known name of the British islands. Baltia was about techno without pulse, and Delphi was about dark minimal ambient, that was based on early Krautrock motifs. Albion takes a different approach, its a melodic album; the drones and textures of previous albums move a side and make place to a heavy dose of melodic elements. Albion deals with cultural colonialism and the exchange of knowledge. It follows ideas that came from Krautrock in 70s and manifested in some genres that were started in the United Kingdom in the 80s\90s. Like Baltia and Delphi, Albion deals with Etziony’s past, focusing on his memories from 80s\90s, and than blending them to create a new narrative that never really happened.
