Bombardier live at Vale Diaries, Prague 12.06.2015

Back in mid June Bombardier (Jason Snell) performed at Prague’s Vale Diaries which was held in an abandoned military base. His heavy ambient hour+ set is something special, as we’ve come to expect from the producer/performer.

Those of you who have been paying attention here at Darkfloor will already know that Snell made a welcome return to our Mantis Radio show in late May. He was over in London, taking a few days out from his European tour and came by our makeshift studio for a live session.

Of his show in Prague on June 12th –

When the sub bass hit on the first track ‘Get You to Give In‘ I felt an intense blast of air from the monitors and thought “this is going to be fun.”

Aleche from Phuture Unknown first heard my music in a 2003 set from Halcyon in Brooklyn. It was one of my few all-ambient sets, mixing existing tracks with a live Novation Bass Station through effects pedals. He invited me to Europe to do a similar set, a full hour+ of soundscapes and live synths. I decided to scrap the track order last minute and let the set dictate what would come next.

It’s one of those sets that has a life of its own, making decisions for itself and unfolding as it chooses – I just happened to be next to the gear while it happened.
