OOUP is a selection of music from the archives of R. Karim, written for film, theatre and his own enjoyment. Karim's view is panoramic yet hyper-detailed - taking in elated cloudways and microscopically fractal terrain. Born digitally, but crackling with a weird sentience. Cold and warm. Tender vocals buried beneath painfully EQ'd, hiccupping breaks. VSTs self-chain, chatter and threaten to rip themselves apart like a centrifuge. OST to the Neuromancer film that never was.

A gorgeous birth to a now striving force in vaporwave music, 'Atarashī Hi no Tanjō' can only be seen in my eyes as the greatest ambient album of all time.
From its rolling samples of Japan's sleepless transit systems through to the intimate use of vocal samples throughout, the dynamic duo of HKE and t e l e p a t h cannot be praised enough for this modern classic, ever evoking that same sense of mystique I caught when I stepped off the sub-express to Moriguchi for the very first time.
