Originally conceived as an ambitious collaborative project between 3 former work colleagues scattered between Cambridge, Arnhem & Bern. After completing only one release together for Edify Recordings, the continental share of the trio parted ways due to ongoing work commitments.

The remaining astral traveler has since continued his journey alone, exploring the Astral Department sound within the realms of live & studio environments.


Since the the digital debut of Faunal Mystery Fables Part 1 the remaining Astral traveler has been concentrating on adapting new & existing material for integration into live sets & studio mixes. These are available to stream at the Astral Mixcloud
