Every note in its place from feathered piano to latent synth lines, washy rattling breaths and hi hats... Borderland State is an artful producer and arranger with a patient approach to record making.

Captivating art from Borderland's precious mind. Turning anything and everything into magic. This one's got a cinematic, golden presence. This is the kind of journey you'll want to close your eyes for and soak up every special moment.

Borderland State giving his gear a proper work out with this new synth-fest! Brilliant and spacious electronica with a dancefloor heart.

Ditto Declan. Borderland State creates the type of music that soundtracks memories.

This came on the other day and at least three of us in the office removed our headphones and all went "damn, what is this?". A vibe!

Quality! Borderland State is mixing his atmospheric, dreamy side with something a little more vocal and driven - and I must stan!

this could easily soundtrack a video where everyone is having the best time at festival as the sun goes down. it's darkness and joy combined.

Had to make sure I reviewed Collider before I got to this one. It's really cool to watch you develop as a producer, expanding into new sounds and directions.

I loved his winning DMA's remix, and I'm so glad he got to create this as part of his mentoring sessions with Kim Moyes. It's got a lot of restrained beauty to it.

Just had to shhhhhhh people in the office so I could give this track the undivided attention it deserves.

I love the subtle textures and how it builds slowly and steadily from start to finish. Really beautiful stuff!

A sparkling follow up to Borderland State's DMA'S remix comp win! The featherweight ambience gets all the more potent with that electronic pulsing.

This song builds up beautifully. Reminds me of a lot of Tycho mixed in with some Jon Hopkins / Teen Daze.
