Botanik by Contium is a trip through expansive aural scenery, which is as vast as it is vivid. Every track in this cassette functions distinctly as its own mood piece, while the music remains consistently immersive throughout. Tone, rhythm and atmosphere have been finely concocted to form this collection of ethereal musical specimens, simultaneously boundless and intimately rooted.

With its thumping bassdrum and relentless percussion, the track is anchored by a dance-floor sensibility and yet its ambition is set on an spatial expansion of sound based upon dub and ambient music, beyond just making people dance.
With an event in Berlin on 16th June 2018, Contium presents the new album to the public. The album can be streamed and downloaded on BandCamp. This is the tracklist:
