badgervsbaboon A wonderfully chilled selection of ambient tracks from BJ here featuring his trademark Mediterranean guitar fingerings now with added tropical drums. Another one for all the 'Balearic' chancers out there. Great and enjoyable release.

released January 25, 2019

At the core of each composition is an improvised live recording.
A one-off, ethereal performance captured in realtime at Ben Smith’s (of Smith & Mudd fame) West London studio, Movedrill Productions.
All other instrumentation is layered like water colour paint over the core of each improvisation. One take - No editing!

Created and Produced by Ben Smith, BJ SMITH
Mastered by Robin Lee
All other instrumentation by Ben Smith
