The Higher Intelligence Agency. Freefloater ‎(CD, Album). This album is a true masterpiece. Though it may seem a bit flat at the first listening, being recorded in 1995 it has an extraotdinary depth in the use of ambient effects and drum patterns. There is a constant disquieting feeling that makes this record different from all other ambient soundscapes (à la Namlook, so to speak).

Higher Intelligence Agency (HIA) is the main electronic music project of Birmingham, UK based Bobby Bird. HIA was formed by Bird in 1992 around the same time as he and a small group of collaborators began an experimental electronic music club night called Oscillate. Bird brought his drum machines and synthesisers to the club night and improvised live in-between playing records

Different CD print than Higher Intelligence Agency - Freefloater. This album is without any doubt one of the greatest electronic piece in music histoy. Pure electronic bass and drum with floating sounds that come from any side around you. No one in the past before and after this has never reached the same overall result. Complicated and at the same time simple compositions with immense sense of dynamism and creativity. The track SKANK is on the middle position not for a case, but because is the apotheosis, the peak, the manifesto not only of a group but also for a generation of electronic artists that drew inspiration drew technical and creative inspiration.
