Pete G. This is the best album I have heard this year! I cannot even pick a favourite track each song is woven so beautifully different than the last. Definitely has a lot of different influences but maintains its originality in a minimalist fashion

The latest work by acclaimed electronic music producer PNFA (Wolfram Gruß), „Sylmar“, is a massive longplayer with over 124 min running time and 15 excellent tracks somewhere between trip-hop, idm, house and techno as well as influences from epic cinematic soundtracks.
„Sylmar“ feels like a trip around the world with an increasing pace and rising tension the further you listen. While the majority of the deep and intelligent titles like „Roots“, „Along The Way“ or the title track „Sylmar“ are certainly brain food, towards the end the album gets more and more danceable. Through the use of many organic, classical instruments in mostly electronic tracks, „Sylmar“ is once more a genre bender of incredible quality. „Sylmar“ will soon be accompanied by a row of EPs with remixes and additional tracks. We're excited to hear how the story continues!

Die neuste Arbeit von Soundtüftler PNFA (Wolfram Gruß), „Sylmar“ getauft, kommt als äußerst umfangreicher Langspieler mit über 124min Spielzeit und 15 exzellenten Tracks daher. „Sylmar“ fühlt sich an wie eine weite, aufregende Reise, die stetig an Spannung und Tempo zunimmt. Die Mehrheit der vielschichtigen und bis ins Detail durchdachten Tracks bewegt sich dabei PNFA typisch irgendwo zwischen Trip-Hop, IDM, House und Techno. Durch den Einsatz von vielen klassischen, natürlichen Instrumenten und Elementen aus epischen Filmsoundtracks überschreitet das Album allerdings spielerisch Genregrenzen. Während besonders die ersten Titel viel Futter für das Gehirn bieten, wird die Reise voranschreitender Spielzeit zunehmend tanzbar.
Zusätzlich zu „Sylmar“ sind eine Reihe von EPs mit Remixen und neuen Tracks geplant. Wir sind sehr gespannt wie die Reise weitergeht!
