The literal Gaelic translation of Blair Habenicht is: ‘Boy in the field has nothing’ – apparently. Although judging by this Lib Tech re-edit of his part from Absinthe’s ‘Resonance’ he actually has a whole lot going for him out in the fields – well, the snow covered ones at least. Blair is not one to shy away from steep, gnarly big mountain lines and is just as comfortable straight-lining one in Alaska as he is sending big 720’s off step down kickers. Some of these lines are frickin’ heavy – how much does that one at 2:21 remind you of Johna Olofsson’s in TB5…? Epic.
