Cultishly adored ambient compilation bblisss finally lands on vinyl, replete with the first Huerco S outing under his Pendant alias, plus material from West Mineral regulars uon, Ulla Straus, and Exael. Pulled together and first issued on cassette by Ryan Fall (uon, Caveman LSD) aka DJ Paradise in 2016, bblisss has since become one of the most sought-after surveys of contemporary ambient music in circulation. Upon its initial release, bblisss introduced many of its artists and aliases for the first time, perhaps most notably Huerco S trading under the Pendant sigil, and also Ryan Fall's emergence as DJ Paradise, which ushered in a gauzier take on the sublime dub abstraction found in his subsequent uon productions. As DJ Paradise, Fall offers two of the set's sweetest highlights with 12 minutes of coagulating ambient clag in "Ssumo", and what sounds like a Balearic groove heard from under those greasy puddles on the rocks outside Cafe Del Mar in "Mbizi (R)", while Huerco S a.k.a. Pendant rolls that vibe out to sea in the gently mesmerizing slosh of "Des Vieux Temples". Along with the shimmering debut entry of Ulla Anona, who would later team with Pontiac Streator for Chat (OUEST 098LP, 2018) on West Mineral, a hyaline vignette from Billington & Trampish, and the slowly strung out, systolic throb of "Procel" by uon collaborator Naemi, aka Exael, the sublime potential of bblisss is pretty much guaranteed. Also features: Enamel.
