Dental Drill An appropriately titled album within which the track entitled 'Untitled' is hard to beat. Favorite track: Untitled.

Lost Tribe Sound I have always been a huge fan of Mr. Cottone's work. 'Expanses' reaches a new level of mastery for his Green Kingdom project. Proving you don't have to reinvent the wheel with every release, just find something you're good at and perfect it. TGK has done just that with 'Expanses'. Lovely! Favorite track: Untitled.

9 You'll recognize this as the title screen track from Hotline Miami 2. It's just so damn calm. Try staring at your favorite piece of nature while it plays. You'll create an indelible memory of peace. Favorite track: Untitled.

about

This album is, for all intents and purposes, is an homage to classic ambient and ambient techno albums of the past (of course filtered through the distinctive sound world of The Green Kingdom). This is not to say that the aim was to recreate or mimic the sound of these recordings, but rather the feeling they create through the use of sustained tones, repetition, melody and texture.

As indicated by the title, these pieces are meant to evoke vast and expansive environments, either real or imagined. These landscapes can often provide a sense of calm and wonder at our relative insignificance in comparison to the majestic grandeur of the larger universe all around us. Although the cover is one example of such a landscape, the tracks remain untitled in hope that the listener might attach their own associations.

Mike Cottone is a graphic designer and musician based in Detroit Michigan. Under The Green Kingdom moniker, he produces minimal ambient music using a variety of digitally manipulated sounds sourced from a variety of acoustic and electronic instruments.
