New label artist Koax hails from Rostock, Germany. He brings a slightly darker side to the Downtempo and Ambient side of the label on this 8 track release. Focused on grand atmospheres, this sure feels like the soundtrack to a sci-fi movie.
Two artists on the label return in unique fashion. Taking the Ambient nature of the Techno works that Outward Roots strives to make, Substak lends his own sound to 5 of the tracks from their first album. Substak morphs the tracks into Experimental and Ambient goodness that shows off his many talents. This is a digital release version of the bonus Cd that comes with a purchase of Moonlit Trees on Cd over at Run On Recordings.
Our second Cd release is a somewhat different one than our first Cd. While still having Coppice Halifax on board, this also has eleven other artists, some new to the label, and others label favorites. No Techno on display making this a fully Ambient release in nature. Forest of Sound showcases the sounds we are currently interested in in the world of Ambient.
HiKE returns with a fantastic Deep Techno Ep on the label. Shades of Dub Techno throughout the release,focused more on the atmospheres in the Techno realm than anything else. Smooth atmospheres highlight this release. Another fantastic HiKE release and an artist we’re proud to release.
Futur[e]cho returns to the label once again for the 2016 installment. Pairing big named artists with up and comers in the Dub and Ambient Techno scene. This year’s release showcases a more modern sound in the world of Dub Techno and Ambient Techno. Fifteen tracks highlight the ever changing sound of Dub Techno, blurring the lines at times between Dub Techno and Ambient Techno. We are proud to be able to bring such talented artists together for another fantastic and mesmerizing release in the series.
After two successful EPs, Outward Roots is pleased to finally release their first LP titled “Moonlit Trees”.
Almost as if it came straight out of the 90s Techno scene alongside albums like AFX’s “Selected Ambient Works” & LFO’s classic “Frequencies”, this album combines lush soundscapes with stripped back, to-the-point drum patterns making this album minimal dance music in the purist form.
