Jack Hertz 2012 Year in Review - 28 Albums Releases and 20,000 Downloads

This year has been so massive, it has been hard to account for everything that has happened in 2012. There are way too many people to thank, I am going to have to do it in 2 or 3 parts. My deepest thanks go to you, the listeners and supporters who support experimental artists and the community we live in.

Thanks to you, 20,000 albums were downloaded from the 28 albums I put this year. Yes, I am even somewhat surprised by that number. It was not planned, nor was I keeping count of my releases from month to month. It just happened.

In The Fog Named Ambient Exotica Song of the Month!

My album "In The Fog" on 45 Echoes Sounds has been named Song of the Month at Ambient Exotica. Many thanks for the kind review: "In The Fog, however, is worth your while, as Jack Hertz manages to create a thick arcane fog with the help of synths – so far, so usual – but carefully strays away from overloading them with all too many textures. Everything is balanced out, and it is the interplay between the different patterns and layers which creates the impression of being in a vault-like antrum near a misty field rather than boosting the drugged state of fluffiness or ethereality."
