[Repeated from Wednesday 11pm.] Robin The Fog presents a series of late-night, deep listening soundtracks for our current era of isolation. This week: we give up the entire show to a reworked version of the remarkable '666 Hertz For 666 Minutes' by Kacper Ziemianin. Originally recorded in the first week of 2022 at the WORM Studio in Rotterdam, tonight's show attempts to create a condensed version of the full eleven hour work by squeezing the whole minimalist masterpiece into sixty maximalist minutes. The full work can be heard on the Kaziem82 Youtube channel. As the maestro himself puts it: 'Are your chakras too wide open? Then this meditation music will surely close them and ground you like no other, it might even bring you straight to hell. I'm surprised this hasn't been done before.'
