This week a frigid mass of North Pole air spun south and descended on the United States. In addition to sub-zero temperatures, disruption of travel and general misery, it introduced a new phrase to describe extreme winter weather.
We were working on an Ambient electronic winter show and we already had a pretty good title for it, but this new phrase, well, it just blew it away. On this transmission of Hearts of Space, a super-chilled winter journey called POLAR VORTEX. Music is by IAN BODDY & ERIK WOLLO, SIMON LOMAX, STORMLOOP, DILATE, TUU, and NETHERWORLD.
