A reimagining of the wonderful Jóhann Jóhannsson’s ‘A Model of the Universe’ by UK composer Mike Lazarev. Jóhann’s music has had a profound impact on us as a label and our scene as a whole, and we are sharing this with much love for all of those he has touched.

“When I put this piece together, I imagined that Jóhann is still with us, somewhere out there, deep in the outer universe, listening to what continues to be the ripples of the seeds he has placed on this planet. With my music I tried to radiate and stretch out his very own ideas that have been implanted in me.” - Mike Lazarev
