Hunter Peter Thompson AKA Opaline has been a workhorse in the synth/ambient community since his beginnings; self releasing his first few tapes in 2012. Consistently releasing one great release after another Opaline has an astonishing track record; working with esteemed tape labels like Phinery, Constellation Tatsu, and most recently Psychic Troubles. His new release “Open Source” is more akin to the early 2015 release “Memory Drain”, starting out with an audacious synth jam then eventually enveloping into warm synthesized ambience as the tape winds down. Hunter explores the most plentiful virtual real estate that surrounds us daily; “Open Source” revels in chilling dreaminess that can only stem from the cold world of data farms and cyberlinks. The perfect soundtrack to the tired eyes of 4AM after a long day of security breaching global networks while running your online warehouse. Take a virtual vacation with this binary bliss!
