id Submerged debuts on Soft Phase with an entrancing ambient journey. The Answer
presents a series of half-remembered moments, the night’s fitful dreams balanced by the new
day’s order and peace.

id Submerged loops and blends gentle rasping beats, slow-morphing chorus, bent pitches,
sonorous drones and muted snippets of conversation. Sinewaves pulse and warp into infinity
as bright pinpricks of percussion cast dappled shadows against the morning calm. Synths call
and answer across widely spaced puddles of color, glitch-beat waterdrops reflecting the clouds
drifting across the skies.

The Answer is slow, comfortable, glowing. Like wrapping up in a blanket with a mug of hot tea,
listening to the rain beat against the window, as half-remembered scenes play against the mind’s
eye. Other times, other places, other people. Quiet melodies and chilly backgrounds melt into a
warm, drowsy syrup oozing across the senses; heavy, soothing, familiar.” — Joshua Saddler

    Just wanted to say that i only discovered your label an hour ago, really enjoyed the Weldroid release, and now i’m checking out this
    id Submerged (who is also new to me) album- and now i’m twice impressed :-) I’m only on the 2nd track and already the quality is clearly very high…this is a gorgeous discovery! It’s vaguely BOC territory, which is an awesome place to exist…but clearly an original voice is at work 100%. love the contrast of chilly vs, warmth and ethereal chromaticism vs. brooding darkness.

    -Respect, id Submerged! THX, Soft Phase ;)

    Loving it! Great work Frode. I agree, this is really in the BoC area and I find it very relaxing.

    `The Answer` represents a kind of depth and complexity that is a very rare find. Beauty is not in the details but in how these details work together and resonate within the mind of the listener. It might not be a journey that `works` for everyone at any time, but when it does it really opens up doors one can hardly imagine.
