about

18 years ago we released an album, 'The Six Million Names of God'. The album was deleted from circulation in 2013, but in 2018 we had the whole thing remastered, repackaged and made available again for a few months before it disappeared again.

Here we're finally making it available again as a Bandcamp exclusive. You won't find this in any other vinyl or digital store. If you buy the vinyl, each copy is hand-numbered and this won't be repressed, so these are the last copies.


Here's how The Ambient Music Guide described the album back when it was first released in 2003:

"Coming from a UK dance production duo who were previously known for their drum 'n' bass tunes, Blu Mar Ten's eclectic chillout masterpiece The Six Million Names Of God is an unexpected and deeply trippy shot out of the, well, blue. Describing an album as being like a movie in your head is hardly an original way of talking about music, but it really does apply here.

It's also Blu Mar Ten's first 'official' album. They used to release singles in the the 1990's on LTJ Bukem's label Good Looking Records, the all-conquering drum 'n' bass label which subsequently angered the duo by releasing a best-of called Producer 03 (2002) without their permission and thus sparking a messy legal separation. Too bad, because that album is a gorgeous atmospheric genre record and is well worth seeking out.

The Six Million Names Of God is altogether different, however, and what a wondrous and mysterious thing it is. Sounds range from the folksy Latin-flavoured guitar of the opening track "Home Videos" to deeply textured ambient pop landscapes, crisp beats, Eastern drones and weird cinematic interludes. It moves along like a surreal book or movie: you know it's good, you just don't quite know what it's all about. Take the "The Date" for instance. It's awash with gorgeously subtle keys, orchestral washes, saxophone and a dreamy, disembodied female vocal. It captures the album's richly melodic essence, yet you couldn't call it typical because no one track here sounds like any of the others. The album is a seamless experience, generally mellow and packed with detail. There's no line here between the acoustic and electronic worlds: it has disappeared completely."
