This is a reissue cassette released by British ambient duo The NRG on Osaka's ambient label Muzan in January 2024. (Original release in 1)

Contains nine psychedelic ambient to ambient house songs that make heavy use of arpeggios. DL code included.

Below is a commentary by the label.

"In the fictional summer of 1993, The NRG were returning to the UK from a hugely successful world tour. In just a few short years, the pair had gone from playing small chill-out rooms to gigging at mega-festivals around the world. However, this success (and the party life that came with it) was both physically and mentally exhausting.
The pressure from the label only increased. "Make a hit LP right now!"
The previous album was not the success they had expected. ``The Magic of Ancients'', with its progressive vibe and emphasis on magic and Neolithic spiritualism, barely made it onto the charts. So, armed with a sampler, some synthesizers, and lots of LSD, they headed to North Wales to record their fourth and final album.
Surrounded by the majestic Snowdonia peaks, wild weather and goats, they set out to record. The result of this fantasy world, which the label expected to be filled with radio-friendly beats, turned out to be an hour-long ambient journey. To some it may have seemed like career suicide, but the album ended up leading to their biggest world tour of all time. The album "Live '1" was finally released in 2021.
Following live albums Live '94 and Glastonbury 1991, Stadium Ambient is the first studio album to be "reissued" from a non-existent discography.

Muzan Editions:

"Muzan is incredibly proud to offer a special Japan edition of The NRG's Stadium Ambient, a studio album so legendary by a band so mythological in stature that they may not even have existed.
This double cassette reissue not only features re-edits of the original release, but also two never before heard recordings from The NRG's completely fictional 1993 Japan tour.
So sit back, turn up the volume, and travel back to a parallel 1990's with the world's foremost pioneers of “big room ambient”.

This is what The NRG has to say about "Stadium Ambient":

ENGLISH:
It's not the summer of 1993 and the boys were back in the UK after another successful but grueling world tour that never happened. In the space of a few short years they'd gone from chill-out room nerds to globe trotting electronic wizards but the relentless live shows and studio sessions were taking there toll... their penchant for hard partying also didn't help.

The pressure was on from the label, "we need a hit LP! NOW!!".

The previous studio album, 'The Magic of Ancients', was universally panned, it's progressive vibes and dalliances with magic and Neolithic spiritualism was not exactly a chart winning formula, so armed with a sampler, a few synths and enough LSD to sink a battleship they headed to North Wales to work on what would become, unbeknownst to them, their fourth...well, out of the albums we know about... and final album.

In their new, temporary base, surrounded by the spectacular Snowdonia peaks, wild weather and mountain sheep, they set about not making an album that was absolutely devoid of anything even remotely radio friendly, in fact there aren't even any electronic beats on the album. It's just a 60 minute + Ambient journey that some would view as commercial suicide but would ultimately result in the biggest world tour they'd never done in 1994, which in turn would lead to the now infamous 'Live '94' album.

"Strap yourselves in and get ready to enjoy the slow motion thrills of the World's most laidback audio rollercoaster ride."
