Inspired by the likes of John Carpenter, Tangerine Dream, Fabio Frizzi and Jean Michel Jarre is Equinox - Joel Grind's latest expedition. Using a retro collection of synths such as the Moog Sub 37 and the Elektron Analog Rythm, the Pennsylvania-born pioneer adds 9 brand new slices of 70s/80s-inspired electronica to his ambient catalogue.

On which Joel dusts down his collection of vintage synths -- you know, Moogs and that -- and gets all horror-movie / John Carpenter on our collective asses. Tracks titles ‘Seance’ and ‘Open Wounds’ give the spooky game away; on the former those layered sounds are all lush and creepily atmospheric, it’s like Jean Michel Jarre just watched The Thing and built a new machine called ‘The Ominatron’. ‘Open Wounds’ has those blood-red stabs and eerie, stalking washes. ‘Apparition’ is how Boards of Canada would sound if they made a Schlock soundtrack…. And -- oh, come on, seriously! -- ‘Funeral Arcana’ is given the full Carpenter, full grey ‘tache and all. Pretty neat.
