There's not a whole lot you can say about Hashtronaut, he just does what he does. He enjoys making long drawn out music that isn't in a particular rush to get anywhere.

sampler: 001 track: Blue (edit) The track 'Blue' came about by accident. It was literally out of the blue. The sequence came first and materialised out of a search to find a sound for another track I was working on. As is often the case I was sidetracked by this sequence, liked it and recorded it for use at a later date. It was finished some weeks later, the end being completed first and the beginning being completed last.
