B. This is my favorite work music. It reminds me of SimCity-style music, which has a "metropolitan" feel to its ambience. Extremely enjoyable. Perfect for sunny quiet strolls or dark night drives. Favorite track: Solar America.

Dr. Beaf Super warm sounds full of synths and very little else. There's some lovely liquid bass lines deep in the music as floating synth hooks fly by. This is good, proper ambient music. Hit's the Highly Recommend list. Favorite track: Solar America.

Tyler It's like Boards of Canada but more going on... and shorter. Love Solar America for the way it seems to simultaneously convince that it's taking you on a journey and yet going nowhere at the same time Favorite track: Solar America.

about

'Seven Years Week' is the debut full-length album from Hanssen, the solo alias of Seattle electronic producer Bob Hansen. Active in the Pacific Northwest music community for nearly two decades, Bob initially applied his sharp production talents, hypnotic rhythms, and goofball sense of humor as one-half of beloved duo Jacob London, blazing a trail on funky, underground dancefloors worldwide with a steady string of hotly-tipped 12” releases throughout the 2000s. While Jacob London reveled in fresh, playful tech-house, Hanssen’s initial solo offerings embraced a more textured and exploratory sound on EPs for the Complot, Innerflight, and Pleasure Boat labels.

Now emerging with his first full-length offering, Hanssen’s most fully realized sonic work nearly ditches the dancefloor entirely in favor of an unpredictable and thrilling foray into cinematic leftfield soundscapes soaked in dreamy nostalgic synths, spacious off-kilter rhythms, and celestial visions. Elements of ambient, R&B, kosmiche, downtempo, New Age, and drone bubble to the surface. Yet, much like its namesake, 'Seven Years Week' takes these familiar styles and creates its own unique world, absorbing the listener into its beautiful, blissful space-time continuum.
