San Francisco Bay Area based electronic musician Rich Brodsky, aka Atomic Skunk, will release his first full length album in over eight years entitled Base Camp on June 21, 2019. The album will feature 9 all new original tracks of Atomic Skunk’s unique "Intuitive Ambient Space Music for the Heart, Mind and Soul." Base Camp is Brodsky's fourth full length album, following on the heels of his first three critically acclaimed releases, Binary Scenes, Portal and Alchemy.
Atomic Skunk made a splash on the ambient electronic scene in 2009 with the release of Binary Scenes, garnering high praise from electronic music fans, bloggers and ambient music stalwarts such as Hearts of Space producer, Stephen Hill and Echoes Radio producer, John Dilberto, who described the music as "note perfect ambient, full of mood, unusual dreamstate shifts and psychedelic edges." Echoes Radio listeners voted Binary Scenes one of the "Top 200 CDs of the last 20 Years." Portal was a featured album on numerous, legendary ambient music radio programs such as Hearts of Space, Echoes Radio, SOMA FM, Musical Starstreams and Radioio Ambient. Echoes Radio listeners voted it into the Top 25 for the "2010 Best of Echoes Radio" listeners poll, while the staff of Echoes Radio featured Portal as one of their "25 Essential Echoes CDs for 2010."
Like Portal and Alchemy, Base Camp will be released on all major platforms, but a "gapless" version of the album (each track flows into the next) will be available only at https://atomicskunk.bandcamp.com. There will also be a very limited edition 6-Panel Digipak CD with artwork by Michal Karcz available. Pre-orders begin June 7 with a release date of June 21, 2019.
