Midweek downtempo with: Eddie Krystal – Tundra #Electronic #Downtempo

How’s your week going? Mines been pretty full on, so need something a bit more soothing to get me through the next few days. Here’s Eddie Krystal with the downtempo but epic open spaces of Tundra.

Eddie Krystal is Edward Krishtul from Brooklyn, NY, United States. Interestingly (to me anyway) tundra comes through Russian тундра (tûndra) from the Kildin Sámi word тӯндар (tūndâr) meaning “uplands”, “treeless mountain tract”. And my son says it covers 25% of the earth’s land mass. The track is is six minute widescreen downtempo tune but with a definite epic sweep and majesty. The synths soar across the treeless landscape. But what holds it down and stops it becoming too ethereal is a bit of scratching and the wonderous tumbling clatter of the drums which give the track a real solidity and presence.
