"Environments" is the first part in a series of planned releases by The Future Sound of London over 2007/2008 via digital download and then CD; released after years of speculation the series is like the long lost album(s) of FSOL.

The album

It is more of an audio journey in two large parts than multiple, exclusive tracks, and is desribed on FSOL's website as capturing city-scapes, jungles, outer and inner space: typical FSOL music in many ways.
Originally planned for release in 1994 under the Amorphous Androgynous alias, it was scrapped, despite being given a catalogue number for its US release and being announced in the liner notes of "Lifeforms". [ [http://users.boardnation.com/~fsoladmin/index.php?board=1;action=display;threadid=208 Environments CD release out on July 21! ] ] [http://www.secondthought.co.uk/fsol/faq.htm#scrap] Some of the material featured on live shows, the ISDN album, and the From The Archives series. In 2007, Brian Dougans reconstructed the album from archived material. Contained within the record are samples and elements from released tracks such as "Tired", "Wookii", "Cascade Part 1", "Life Form Ends" and "Ill Flower". Further Environments records - volumes II & III - are planned for digital release in 2008.A CD version of the album was released on Jumpin' & Pumpin' records on July 21st 2008, giving fans a chance to own an actual copy of the album fourteen years after its initial planned release.
