All good robots go to heaven. They go to crystalline cities in the clouds in a land called Halcyon Electronica. The music of that land and of "IO Vapoura" blends the instruments of East and West with the downtempo genres of dreampop, chillout, ambient and dance. This LP, the Air element of the four "IO" LPs, marks the third full album from T.Rex artist San Jaya Prime. Bittersweet and haunting, "Vapoura" also brings hope to a future where humanity lives on only in memory

"To say I enjoy this album would be an understatement."
