Artists such as Biosphere, Ultraviolet, Illumination, Mental Overdrive, Krisp, Ismistik, Aedena Cycle and Motion Control have through their output on various european labels drawn attension to the norwegian underground techno/electronica scene, often reffered to as the "Arctic Scene". Small idealistic lables such as +47, Love OD and Beatservice Records have been a part of establishing and maintaining this scene, who excists well hidden behind the more commercial rave culture.
Finally, Beatservice Records have put together a compilation which has turned out to be a "tour de force" of the arctic scene. "Arctic Circles - a collection of sub zero soundscapes" contains exclusive tracks from the likes of Biosphere, Illumination, Ultraviolet and more, 12 tracks from 12 artist/projects who shows both the variety and the depth of this scene.
The CD booklet contains short biographies and discographies for each of the contributors, and is a kind of a "Trans-Arctic Express."
