from the boiling summer of australia to the freezing winter of europe it came, an ''electronica / inditronic / ambient / post-rock / i.d.m. / glitch'' masterpiece called ''embryo from a collapsing star'' e.p., donated by the artist himself - ''bob streckfuss'' (a.k.a. ''0point1'', ''0.1''). even if created where the sunshine & warm weather are nothing but a common thing we take this to be the best winter's electronica-based release &, at the end, surely, one of the best e.p.'s of the year:

01. ''embryo from a collapsing star'' (e.p., 2015)

costa cadeu

throughout the everyday routine he's a digital designer but when the planets are in a perfect conjuction he becomes ''costa cadeu'', a russian ''electronic'' musician, producer & remixer based in ''санкт-петербург'', российская федерация.
born as ''konstantin kazhev'', ''costa'' is not a trained musician. his first music kicks were made in his early teens along with his long time ally ''nata rudman''. primarly an ''i.d.m.'' artist he is also interested in other genres as well in collaboration with other artists.
under different monikers ''costa'' has produced a dozen of self-released albums & e.p.'s, & he's also a part of a ''synth-pop'' duo called ''r.u.'' (formerly known as ''shadows dream'').
as a remixer he won the ''beatport'' contest with his remix for ''garbage'' & their ''automatic systematic habit''.

bruno real

''bruno real'' (a.k.a. ''nu4ms'') from ''curitiba'', brasil, is a man involved in web design, digital marketing & some interesting music-making. so far (as far as we know...) he has released 8 official e.p.'s with couple of appearances on various compilations. what caught our eye (read: ears) is his brand new ''electronic / i.d.m. / advanced techno'' e.p. called ''aqamental apresenta aleatorio 1'', by our opinion, his foremost release by now:

01. ''aqamental apresenta aleatorio 1'' (e.p., 2014)

medical meccanica

ever tried ''acid''...? well, if you ever decide to this would be the perfect soundtrack to it...
anyway, cruising round the internet ''roots.stop'' came up to this most interesting, what we like to call, a ''freestyle fusions'' band virtually based in ''london'', u.k. to be precise, a ''experimental / electronic / funk / rock / industrial / lo-fi'' band consisted of them four: ''daddy'', ''d/s/l-iot'', ''mommy'', & ''object a'' (all real names are unknown but who cares). they started with music-making in 2013 inspired by ''deleuze & guattari'' & ''nick land'', & their application in a post-internet setting. their aim is to capture the ontic experience of the digital into a musical form expressed via an assemblage of content. it's an effort they hope to explore more in the upcoming near future.
so far they've made only one official release which will make ''roots.stop'' absolutely proud to deliver:

01. ''dsl-iot's 'the vv@$+e|@|\|d''' (e.p., 2014)
