Drome - Dromed (1995)

Drome is one of the several projects headed by the german musician/producer Bernd Friedmann, also known for his work in Flanger, Nine Horses (with David Sylvian), or as Burnt Friedman.
"Dromed" contains many amazing and involving soundscapes, highlighted by tracks such as "Hypho Bank", "Eurotunnel" or "Moon on My Screen".

Although Friedmann's releases as Drome have thinned in recent years, the name is widely regarded in association with the development of downtempo breakbeat and trip-hop, with a sample -heavy ambient- and dub-influenced take on hip-hop-styled beats and a clear, atmospheric nod to home listening over the dancefloor.
