We got this tip from Cherry Audio: UK electronic music wizard Phil Heeks (The British Stereo Collective) has released his latest album, Layovers on Infinity Road, from his The New Electric Frontier project. The release features Cherry Audio’s GX-80 and Elka-X synthesizers, and is described as, “A sonic journey through cities, along desert highways, across the expanse, by day and by night.”

This album reminds (very much) of Vangelis’ Spiral album – certainly worthwile to give it a listen. The album is available from bandcamp.
