The Aurora compilation is a departure from the Merck releases thus far. It is a compilation composed of ambient tracks created by released and unreleased producers alike. Most of whom are primarily known for their IDM output. The music has alot of warmth to it and a very high melody/noise ratio(as you
would expect from these musicians doing ambient). A lot of the tracks are reminiscent of SAW 2 era's inviting warmth and smoothness. Featuring tracks by: Lackluster, Sense, Melf, Phonex, Proem, Salice, Ilkae, Oblique, Threehz, Syndrone, Kiyoshi Ono, Pandorabox, Soundstate, and EU. This 75-minute cd is an exciting departure from the traditional roles of IDM producers and something very refreshing to hear after a lull in quality ambient music.
