North Pacific Drift - Cold Storage - CD PPP123 PDCD Just when you thought all of the territories had been mapped, N.P.D. storm out of the blue with possibly the most refreshing sound to caress your shores since Massive Attack. Inhabiting a place truly beyond the normal dimensions and restraints of "genre", the sound of N.P.D. is culled from a wide open vision of time and space dynamics, a global mosaic of dub rhythms and shimmering electro patterns.
