About AmbientExotica

Hallo there, my name is Björn, I'm a Frankfurt-based vacationist in the realms of Ambient, Vaporwave and Exotica releases.


AmbientExotica was launched in 2011 and is now in its fifth year. Specialties include in-depth — or holistic — reviews of the aforementioned three genres and its cavalcades of styles. In addition, the header image of each review reflects the respective album's artwork: an innate costumization for the purpose of branding.


The archives currently comprise of over 1,000 reviews and writeups.
