Back in 1999 Deep Chill Network created a CD of the deepest chill and drone material called “Heart of the Tundra.” The CD struck a chord with listeners and established DCN as drone masters. The music was featured on many excellent ambient and spacemusic radio shows such as Starsend. Music reviewers said "...like gusts of wind, ending in murmurs and rumbles… Though it does evoke a frozen darkness, it has a kind of restful, peaceful quality to it that I found coldly comforting." (Wind and Wire magazine, 1999)
For years DCN has wanted to release a sequel and have attempted to recreate the feel and vibe of this CD but has never been able to put together a release we felt worthy of the title “Heart of the Tundra 2.” With this release however, we feel they have done it. Contained within this music is not only the essence of essential ambient drone, but the feel and vibe of the arctic north.
