"Trails of ERIDU - Kinnarodden is the 1st album of electronica genre compositions by YaDi AND FRieNDs. It is strongly inspired by nature and by people I met. It's a story of the journey to the 'end of the world' - Cape Nordkinn (Kinnarodden) - the uppermost point of mainland Europe located in desolace lands of the oldest culture in Northern Europe - Saami people. Deep there, many tracks were composed, various sounds recorded, and the actual form of the album was shaped.

I would like to thank my wife DoRi, my mother and my sister for staying by my side for all those years. Also thanks a bunch to my sons for making my life challenging. ;-) I love you all! Special thanks to all my friends who took a part in making this album: Łukasz "Indiana Luk" Dziuban aka AK0RD ze SKWAK | Szymon Banasik aka Polarna Jaskółka | Rafał Poddębski aka Rafaello | Adam Zagajewski | Mateusz "MaTi" Gałka | Tomasz "Detector" Jachowicz aka Młody (RIP) | Przemysław Grzelak.
I salute you!
Additional thanks to Przemysław & Wiesław Grzelak from MusicStudio for all your hard work to make this album sounds great. Much obliged!
Special thanks to Albert Lange for help and support when it was needed the most.

Composed & performed by YaDi Permafrost forms large-scale land formations, such as palsas. Palsas are a type of marsh found in alpine or arctic tundra. This habitat is threatened by climate changes. Long periods of warm and humid climate are causing palsas to melt, realising greenhouse gases, such as CO₂ and methane.
