Laraaji first gained wider notice when Brian Eno asked him to record an album as part of his seminal Ambient series. The result was the brilliantly unique Ambient 3: Day Of Radiance. And Laraaji has gone on to release a series of cosmic new-age releases, many of which he recorded himself at home and sold as cassettes during his street performances.

In more recent years he’s had his career celebrated extensively, with two All Saints/Warp retrospectives – as well as a reissue of Ambient 3. These releases have only served to show that, 30 years on, his trance-inducing jams are reaching people in a new and inspiring way.
