Mariusz Duda Claustrophobic Universe Clear vinyl Riverside
Claustrophobic Universe is the second vinyl release from Mariusz Duda’s The Lockdown Trilogy
Recalling Duda’s earliest influences - Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis and Tangerine Dream - the wholly instrumental trilogy was created as a means of Duda reconnecting with his younger self and coping with the stresses and strains of the global pandemic of 2020/2021.
Limited clear vinyl edition (featuring artwork by Hajo Müller). 
30 years ago, a certain shy boy fascinated by the works of Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis, and Tangerine Dream, locked himself up in his room and started to think up his original music stories. He recorded them on cassette tapes, created covers for them, and arranged them on the shelf next to those of his masters. 30 years later, when the world was taken over by a pandemic and an international lockdown, Mariusz was beamed back to his childhood bedroom, where he was reading and drawing comic books, playing games, listening to lots of music from cassette tapes... and recording his own electronic sounds. "Why not do it again?" he thought to himself, feeling inspired. "Why not create a new project where I will play only the keyboards? And why not sign it just like I used to when I was a kid? Simply 'Mariusz Duda'". 
And that's exactly what he did. Between 2020 and 2021, he recorded and released online three electronic albums that make up the "Lockdown Trilogy". 
1. Knock Lock
2. Planets In A Milk Bowl
3. I Landed On Mars
4. Waves From A Flat Earth
5. 2084
