You are buried miles under the surface of an ice world for eternity, and you like it.

"Hadal Drift" is over an hour of isolationist/dark ambient atmosphere. It is immense, creepy, and boring, all of which is intentional.

Source material is entirely from soundcloud.com/regattas1/except-when-you-dont-because by Sam Hillmer (of ZS and myriad other projects). Both ZS' music and the extended ZS family's music make for rewarding listening, and are highly recommended. Thanks to Sam and Charlie for the music, and for giving the ok.

Since this track is very much in keeping with isolationist and dark ambient currents, here are some reference points for the interested: "Collapse" by James Plotkin and Mick Harris, "Re-Entry" by Techno Animal (especially the second disc "Heavy Lids"), "Continue" by Lull, "Solaris" by Final, "Hz" by Main, "Selected Ambient Works, Vol. 2" by Aphex Twin...
