Hailing from Amsterdam -- The Netherlands, Sol Tek is actively writing music for the last 20 years under many monikers and labels,
counting an impressive 12 full length albums and a number of E.Ps. and singles under his belt.
Albert Borkent is a seasoned musician with over two decades' experience - a fact evident in the excellent production quality of "Steps Into Space".

The Sol Tek sound can best be described as very futuristic, subtle and deep but also melodic, harmonic and delicate.
"Steps Into Space" is a carefully selected double album, featuring some of Sol Tek's finest and deepest sonic excursions up to date.
A total of 16 tracks on a double digipack print featuring stunning light interpretations cover/inlay visuals & a collectable 8 page booklet by Masashi Kitazato - Tokyo.
To top it all up, state of the art Pure Class A Mastering from Sweet Spot - Athens.

Showcasing Immersing Atmospheres and Lush textures "Deeper in the heart of Cosmos" introduces the listener on a 2 hour kaleidoscopic journey over a total of sixteen recordings that range in length from the brief two-minute-fifty-three-second disc opener Calisto through to the The Light Pours Out Of Us at just over thirteen minutes.
"Steps Into Space " can be best described as a deep journey of Cosmic Ambient and occasional Downtempo Grooves through
Resonating Sub Harmonic Earth Shaking Seismic Frequencies, Cinematic Landscapes and emerging Harmonized Dreams with a touch of sweet chromatic bubbles under a magic hour skyline.

Sol Tek's inspiration is driven from diverse music backgrounds such as Arvo Part, Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze among others, combining electronic driven cinematic music influences under a unique Sol Tek style.

Assuming other musical guises over the years such as Lingua Lustra and Dodecahedron, or with collaborative projects Albert has appeared on numerous other labels : Practising Nature, Databloem, Speedsound Records, Baksish Music and Spiritech music.

Apart from the front cover, imagery luxuriates within a smooth, eternal black field displaying the luminescent 'Camera Painting's of Masashi Kitazato to best effect.

Step into Space is a far-reaching double album of highly immersive electronic expanses.

Orbiting into space - Stepping in to inner space Awakened ambient for sharp listeners !
