Biosphere is the main recording name of Norwegian musician Geir Jenssen. He is well known for his ambient techno works and arctic themed pieces, his use of music loops, and peculiar samples from sci-fi sources.

'Patashnik' was originally released by R&S Records' Apollo offshoot in 1994.

One reason why Jenssen's work stands out from the flood of early '90s ambient / techno releases is his strong sense of the quirkily creepy - not in an Aphex Twin mode, but in his own particular way. The contrasting samples of a child quaveringly saying, "We had a dream last night," followed by a rougher sample saying, "We had the same dream," gives opening number "Phantasm" an unsettling feeling. Biosphere has an edge which isn't just melancholic, it's downright ominous at points. There's the slow crawl of "Startoucher," for instance, with its buried vocal snippets and deep bass drone, or the blend of the space signal atmospheres of "Mir" into the low, brooding intro to "The Shield." Not everything is so shadowy, though; 'Patashnik' is primarily a relax and chill listening experience, but not without its gentle high points. "Novelty Waves," which became a crossover single in some quarters, has a good dancefloor sharpness to it even as Jenssen slyly sneaks in odd drones and samples through the mix.
