Distance and space within sound can be a struggle to gather.
Often such moments offer pensive time for self reflection, an opportunity for thoughts to run wild amidst a backdrop which acts not as a distraction but as a concentrated aid.

Air Texture was formed by James Healy in 2011 following the inspiration of labels such as Kompakt, Instinct Ambient and Excursions In Ambient. Based in Brooklyn, James has since gone on to release what could be described as some of the most significant ambient compilations in recent years. He has captivated the imagination of a community and audience through his releases, often featuring big names alongside relative up and comers across each of his previous compilations: Ricardo Villalobos, Oneohtrix Point Never, Wolfgang Voigt, Biosphere, Teebs and Legowelt are to name but a few.
