_snd was named in Pitchfork’s 50 best ambient records of all time alongside Oval, Eno, Basinski.

This deluxe reissue was remastered by Rashad Becker (Kali Malone, Eartheater, Nicolas Jaar, Clipping, Oval, Jim O’Rourke).

Few records have weathered the fast-moving, fickle trends in electronic music like those of Microstoria. The duo brings together two of the most prescient, playful minds in the German electronic underground – Jan St. Werner (Mouse on Mars, Fiepblatter Catalogue) and Markus Popp (Oval). Their albums as Microstoria are considered foundational texts in ambient music while equally sounding just as cutting-edge now as on their initial release, continually cropping up in “best of” lists from the likes of Pitchfork and FACT while finding new fans through remixes by Jim O’Rouke and Stereolab. Each of their rippling soundscapes is a masterful study in subtle gestures, tiny melodic vapors curling like smoke around rumbling subs and glistening synthesizer textures with a delicate interplay between light and shadow. After being long out of print and coveted by collectors, the duo’s cult classic albums init ding and snd now receive the expanded reissue treatment as a double LP, featuring remixed sleeve artwork based on the original designs and a full remaster of each by engineer Rashad Becker.
