    Fans of Alania, how did you find the music? Personally, I hunted them down in the record stores when the CDs were released in 1996 and 1997. But the rest of you? Unfortunately their music is fairly unmentioned (hence it also is hard to find on the web), undeserved as it is uniquely good electronica that deserves a notorious place in history!

    Indeed, I've discovered them a few days ago and I love the Skyjuice album. I've been searching for this kind of downtempo for such a long time :)

    I'm suprised that not more listens to Alanïa. Their album Skyjuice is so beautifull! Been listening to it alot when it came out many years ago.
