Previous Plafond contributors include Legowelt and SFV Acid.

Dutch label BAKK has announced the fourth installment of their ambient electronic series Plafond.

Plafond 4 brings together Philadelphia’s Ulla Straus (c-, West Mineral Ltd., Quiet Time) and De School resident Oceanic in intentionally complementary contrast.

Straus wanders about the A-side with two scrapbook compositions that combine field recordings, saxophone and guitar.

On the B-side, Oceanic stretches out with their epic ‘Three Sides of a Shell’, which includes minimalist rhythmic pieces ‘Aperture’, ‘Columella’ and ‘See If You Can Hear’.

Plafond 4 will be released on vinyl and digital formats on October 28 and is available for pre-order here. See the album artwork and tracklist below.
