Captain Underpants I have to be honest. The first couple times I listened to this album I did not give it a chance. I found some quiet time to actually take the hour long journey through PASSAGES and came out on the other end with my mind blown! Thanks for the wonderful album! This work is a treasured addition to my collection.

Dotflac Coming from the downtempo and ambient realms, I see [Passages] like the story of every being put on sound.

Our field of view covers hard (Der Blaue Engel, Deeper Direction or Unlit) and happy events of the past (9980 remix, Passing Through Walls or Delicate), but hopes to see a bright future anyway with the last two tracks.

Safe bets and promising recruits are finely directed by their conductor Nova, in a compilation definitely aerial and highly sensitive, made sublime by Vincent's mastering. Favorite track: Deeper Direction.

[ Passages ] is the third compilation by London based DJ, promoter and music journalist Massimo Terranova aka Nova. Following in the footsteps of his previous releases, [ Albedo ] in 2005 and Imaginary Friends in 2009, Nova presents a brand new mix of emo-ambient and electronica to evoke today’s dichotomy in relationships and rites of passage.

Gathering emerging artists and seasoned talents in the realms of pulsating minimal dubs, atmospherica, and downtempo, [ Passages ] offers a rich palette of serial music and soundscapes depicting the London’s urban skyline and a life of mono/poly-chromatic contrasts.

Nova delivers an elegant musical story wrapped in Italian art & fashion photographer Giovanni Calemma’s modish black and white illustrations and featuring James Murray, Fingers in the Noise, Cygna, Brando Lupi, Miktek, Murya, Martin Nonstatic, Lars Leonhard, AES Dana, Connect.Ohm, Max Million and Zinovia.
