Lowland Explores Sonic Journey with ‘We’ve Been Here Before’ [Black Hole Recordings]



Lowland presents you with his ethereal artist album debut for We’ve Been Here Before via Black Hole Recordings.



Finnish production maestro Petri Alanko (aka Lowland) is no stranger to collective works of musical genius. Although We’ve Been Here Before stands as his first official “regular” album, Alanko’s repertoire does already include his Classical Trancelations series, a compilation of trance classics adapted into orchestral compositions. A man of many talents, Alanko is a classically trained composer, harmonious soundtrack producer, and critically acclaimed musician whose work speaks for itself in that it is truly symphonic in nature. His orchestral background lends well to a smooth transition into the electronic side of production where we find his latest endeavors.


After many years of fine-tuning and perfecting his art, Alanko has given light to We’ve Been Here Before, a collection of tracks that explore previously uncharted territory for the dynamic artist as he shows off his multifaceted skill set by employing techniques and arrangements that have been carefully crafted throughout his experience as an inventive musician.


Much like the relaxed compositions he brings to life, Lowland explains that “Music itself wants to be free. So I never felt any pressures of urgencies with this album. I always thought it’d be best for ‘We’ve Been Here Before’ to come naturally, without pushing or forcing.”


We’ve Been Here Before is a true listening experience overflowing with masterful techniques, instrumental expertise, and vivid imagery to feed your soul. The 13-track collective kicks off with the slow rising build of “An Approach” and gradually leads into varying works of individual art that meld together to form a single sonic and cinematic journey. Drawing impactful inspiration from his homeland and natural surroundings, Lowland has poured his soul and inner-being into the creation of this exquisite collection for many years. Encompassing dark tones on tracks like “Infinite Loudness,” uplifting melodies on “Frozen Butterflies” and “Sand on My Skin,” intricate instrumental elements on “Stains” and “Blackbird,” and blissful vocals all around, the album delivers an outstanding voyage of astronomical proportions.
