Boomkat Product Review:
**Limited gatefold white vinyl 2LP, includes MP3 download code** 'In-Between' marks the momentous return of Arovane, in collaboration with Hior Chronik, to the ambient serenity of his much-adored early '00s releases for CCO and DIN. More than ten years ago, Uwe Zhan a.k.a. Arovane left the IDM/electronica world, seemingly for good, with the delicate prisms of 'Lillies', only to reappear in 2013 with a more angular, beats-driven style in 'Ve Palor' for n5MD. Now teaming up with Greek composer Hior Chronik, Arovane returns to expand upon the tranquil, hyaline sounds and lump-in-throat motifs which allured so many listeners to his classic albums such as 'Tides' and 'Atol Scrap'. The two make for a perfect marriage of heartfelt, optimistic mood-engineering, melancholy and immersive sound design, brimming with the kind of uplifting vibes and dream-like detail that could alternately, subliminally make you want to buy life insurance, join a dating agency, or write poetry and potter about the hills.
