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.
A very personal and emotional album from a new artist on the label. Ambient Techno in the style of BvDub highlighting layers upon layers of sound to create a pretty and interesting sound.
Polygon-Boy returns to the label for a lo-fi electronic adventure, bringing along fellow artist, and long time favorite of the label, The Dandelion Council. Filtered Downtempo and Ambient highlight this release.
A return to the label with a more somber mood than before. This is an album in remembrance of her grandmother who passed away. An album of powerful, emotional and noisy Ambient before giving way to 2 different versions of the tracks Pulse Angel and In Slow Motion.
Louigi returns to the label for the 5th highlight release of his ongoing and very large Droning project. Another longform piece of Dronescape with an ethereal feeling and shimmering moods. One to not miss!
HiKE is a brand new artist to the label and brings his own brand of Dub Techno infused with field recordings from transit stations in Germany. In his own words:
Deutsche Bahn, means German railway and is also the name of the government owned company for train traffic in Germany.
The tracks on this EP are based on field recordings I have made on rail and subway stations in 4 German cities. Many of the sounds are made from mangling these samples.
Louigi Verona highlights his Droning project once again with a 4th collection of favorites from the ever growing series. Smooth, deep and shimmering tracks on this release highlight a similar mood.
Edmahnd returns to the label this time with a release all of his own. Shades of Steve Roach’s Ambient excursions into the deep kicks floating off into the distant lands are showcased, and then Edmahnd shows off his pure Ambient side on the final track.
This is an album that has helped shape the current sound of Drone Ambient that James Shain is quickly becoming known for. This album is now back again, this time in high quality formats and expanded with 3 extra tracks not found on the original release.
DeepWarmth returns to the label for his second entry in the ongoing remix collection series Night Sessions. Featuring remixes from 2015 including an unreleased aspect. remix and a brand new tune, This one shows his ever changing remixing style, one that sees him trying to input his Ambient sound into everything.
The second release by Outward Roots showcases a minimal sound focused more on the Ambient side of the duo. Minimal beats flow in and out of this 3 track Ep and could almost be called entirely Ambient. Two different tracks highlight the ever changing sound ending with a Version track that removes the beat completely.
Eastern Depths returns to the label with a second volume. Full of tracks focused more on atmospheres over the course of 9 tracks. This release showcases more great talent in the Techno and Downtempo world. We couldn’t be more pleased to have a second volume.
SHiMOTET joins the ever growing roster with a release that could be described as light, airy and playful. A unique sound that sounds as much as Ambient Techno as it does Downtempo. Giving 4 tracks for his first release on the label, and hopefully not the last, we see the sound change from Ambient to Ambient Techno to Downtempo ending with a chopped up vocals infused playful and light Techno track.
This is the first release from Outward Roots (Owen Ni & DeepWarmth) and they blend an Ambient style with Techno rhythms and create atmospheric sounds on this three track release.
