algernon

we are entering september with something most interesting for all of you ''i.d.m. / ambient / post-industrial'' fans.
''chris adam'' (a.k.a. ''algernon'') from ''chelmsford'', ''essex'' county, u.k., is a sound artist who was always been fascinated by cosmolgy & space. space interest in conjuction with a degree in physics was a right cornerstone & ispiration point for him to step inside the world of music. he said: ''there's a complex, vibrating pattern to reality &, although the universe might seem chaotic, there is a serene, ambient framework that it all builds from. it is this sense that i try & emulate within my music''.
''roots.stop'' has recognized this, hope you will too...

p.s. give thanks & praises to chris's girlfriend because without her this e.p. would
       never saw the light of the day.

waves

today we are dealing with 19 years old ''electronic'' artist called ''waves'' (real name unknown) from ''brittany'', france, who likes to make music late at night in his shambolic bedroom, mainly influenced by ''trent reznor'', ''james holden'' & ''boards of canada''. ''waves'' is also involved in a ''death metal'' band which still has no name but also likes to make beats for his ''hip-hop'' friends.
at first, ''waves'' started this project with an intent to pay his musical school studies through its work, but that was, of course, just a dream... he said: ''now 'waves' is a sound experiment where i can destroy sound & try effects''. he also said: ''the future album will probably be a remix of my first album, 'noise', which will involve some other musicians. but being impulsive as i am it is possible that i will create another album before that with someone who will take part as a singer on some of the tracks''.
now before all of that you should definitely try out his brand new release, a ''electronic / ambient / post-synthwave'' masterclass called:

01. ''void'' (e.p., 2015)

2walls

this hot, hot summer seems like will never end so we thought you might need something to cool it off even for a moment...
''vladimir'' (full name unknown / a.k.a. ''2walls'', ''yav''), a promising ''ambient / i.d.m. / experimental / advanced techno / 2step'' artist from ''bratislava'', slovakia, heavily influenced by such artists as ''bvdub'', ''36'' & ''burial'' is one of the most interesting revelations of 2015. you can say he's just a everyday person but with a need for space where he can freely express himself without boundaries. as a reflection to this he has created one of the most interesting ''ambient'' tracks we've heard in a very long time. as you all know ''ambient'' is a pretty much uniformed genre where most tracks resembles one another. it takes something a bit special to jump out from the sea of similarity to be noticed. that's where ''2walls'' jumps in:

01. ''as we did before'' (1-track single, 2015)

schusei

so far this summer has been very generous to us, ''advanced electronic'' music admirers, so generous it gave us another exquisite release in such a short period of time.
''deepest seeds'' e.p., a ''i.d.m. / post-industrial / ambient / noise'' masterclass by a ''sapporo'', hokkaido, japan native but in last couple of years a resident of ''berlin'', germany - ''osamu naru'' (a.k.a. ''schusei'', ''schusei baba'' / member of ''hopscotch enetertainment'' production)
he started his musical journey at his very teens influenced by his friends, musicians  & painters but also by sapporo's nature surrounding. at that time ''schusei'' was a pro inline skater (sponsored by ''remz'') fascinated by street culture. always into ''noise'', ''i.d.m.'' & ''breakcore'' he soon began to create his own beats. first started with ''acid4'' but soon after ''roland sp-606'' came along, a machine responsible for his future sound shape-up. after ''sp-606'', ''roland mc-909'' & ''elektron analog rytm'' took place & now those machines are his audio signature.
watch out very closely, ''schusei'' is coming:

oceans in space

who would have guessed, after 2 months of void ''roots.stop'' has came across 2 masterpieces in just 2 days... first ''normalboy'' & now this:
''oceans in space'', a project of a man called ''ben weber'' from ''minneapolis'', minnesota, u.s.. as a project, ''oceans in space'' is best described as ''the deconstruction of stringed instruments by electronic means''. ''oceans'' started as a bass player, creating music in the ''experimental metal'' & fusion genres before discovering the ''chapman stick'', the instrument that would define his existence & shape up the ''oceans in space'' sound. most of his releases involve the ''chapman stick'', played in an extremely non-traditional way over fractured synths & glitched-out beats of ben's own design. he records constantly, taking the stick + electronics formula into genres like ''black metal'', ''grindcore'', ''8-bit electronic'', ''trap'', ''slam'', ''glam'' & even ''pop''.
most of his music has been released by ''scumcom'' netlabel like this masterclass we're presenting to you here - ''femalien predation on mars'', probably one of the 5 most interesting ''i.d.m. / braindance / freestyle fusions / freestyle electronic'' albums of the year.
here's what ''ben'' told us about it:
''this album was inspired by my discovery that mars is inhabited. i learned of this via the research of three chrononauts: andrew basiago, bernard mendez & brett stillings. definitely look them up. i’ve done countless hours of research & this was my way to interpret & reflect what i’ve learned via sound. life on mars does exist, & this album is my way of telling the world.
most of this was created on the ipad with turnado, glitch breaks, tonestack & others. these apps were used to create the synth & drum sounds, over which i used my 8 string n.s. stick to create the guitar, bass & additional synth sounds. those are the main elements. there are some additional hidden things, but it's probably best not to discuss them.''
amen!

01. ''femalien predation on mars'' (2015)

* note: ''roots.stop'' would like to thank ''ryan harrison warnberg'' (a.k.a. ''scum'') of
           ''scumcom'' netlabel for intercession between us & ''ben weber''
           (a.k.a. ''oceans in space'').

normalboy

it's been a while but we're back... we've been searching for the right type of artist for our next post & after almost 2 months of exploration we have finally found someone who coincides with our criterion.
he goes by the name of ''anthony'' but he's also known as ''normalboy'' & also as a member of ''hillsgoteyes'' project (along his friend ''john mcvay'', a.k.a. ''go as death''). originally from ''tucson'', arizona, u.s., ''anthony'' started making music at very amateur level with microsoft sound recorder back in high-school. then started publishing it online in greater frequency using sequencing programs around 2004, although very few of those creations still exist.
his first official release made in 2007 for just 28 days was outstanding ''dead signal'' album, a superb ''post-industrial / i.d.m.'' self-release made way ahead of its space & time. it's one of those albums you didn't know that even exist but as soon as you hear it you'll say - ''how the hell could i miss this...?!''. same goes for other 3 officials: ''works in progress'' (singles collection, 2014, self-released), ''triptych'' (e.p., 2015, self-released), & ''abstracts'' (2015, self-released). it's the materials you just simply have to have stored on your hard-drive, especially if you're a fan of ''i.d.m. / ambient / post-industrial / experimental / synthwave'' type of crossovers.
we were in doubt which one of these masterpieces should we bring you here so we've decided to give you this - a superb piece of ''i.d.m. / post-industrial'', unofficial but stunner it is:

01. ''a view to normalboy'' (e.p., compilation, unofficial release, 2015)

''zero tep'', ''d.j. hawken'', ''mad atlantic'', ''psychic sex'' / member of ''contact sports'', ''vincent van dough'' / owner of ''subviolet records'' label) is a versatile & multi-talented producer, sound artist & musician from ''oshkosh'', wisconsin, u.s. over the years he has been involved in many projects either as a solo act or a group member. depending of the pseudonym, his variability & multiplicity of styles are quite something, spanning from ''i.d.m.'', ''glitch hop'' & ''post-dubstep'' to ''punk'', ''rock'', ''hardcore'' & ''powerviolence music''.
from his entire discography we've decided to bring you this - a superb piece of ''i.d.m.'' called:
