animal spirit

summer break is over & ''roots.stop'' is back with something pretty special. nick andrew (a.k.a. ''animal spirit'') from ''oakland'', california, u.s., a ''i.d.m. / post-rock / electronic / ambient / experimental'' music maker & a creator of one the most interesting tracks of 2016. he said: ''that track was one i worked on for a while & it was a bit of a challenged to get it to flow from the first, more mellow, section to the more aggresive second part. it is actually all recorded samples & analog synths. from there i used 'ableton live 9' to chop it up & play with all of the audio''...
we also asked him to tell us something more about himself so here is his story:
''i grew up as a player, mostly on guitar & drums, so i am always looking for new ways to use my instruments in a new context. i release music under the name 'animal spirit' & other than a couple of collaborations & remixes i have mainly worked alone. i was really happy with my track with 'bmills' that we made back in 2012 which we left untitled. that & all of my music can be found on my 'soundcloud' & 'bandcamp' pages. in the future it is really important to me to progress as a producer & musician. i want to continue to push myself to release interesting & impactful music. i am also starting work on a live set which showcases the guitar, drums, & synths i use in the studio. i feel it is important for electronic artists to push themselves in their live set & continue to bring new things to the table when it comes to performing. it would be awesome to get to play my music for people & just reach more ears in general''.

donetella

hailing from the lone star state of texas, ''donetella'' brings you bleeps & static noise paired with a romantic sense of melody & hint of chaos.
starting music at age 11, ''donetella'', born as ''don staley'', was fascinated by the array of sounds the given instruments he played could produce. starting off on clarinet, he found it a bit daunting, but ultimately, persevered. he later decided to switch to double bass, sparked by curiosity & the fact that he was the only one in 6th grade who could actually hold it. his middle & high school years consisted of performances in numerous ''metal'', ''punk'', & ''jazz'' bands, all state orchestras.
after graduating & auditioning for various elite music schools, he began to experiment with the sounds of ''i.d.m.'', particularly those on the ''warp'' label. however, after this experimentation, he decided to pursue a career on his own sound. determined & focused, he played wherever they would allow his diverse, yet intriguing melodies. ''donetella'' later joined a small band in ''dallas'', where his friend witnessed his true potential & offered him a chance to try his luck in ''los angeles''. although a drastic change, ''donetella'' knew this was a course for the better.
so it was because this course has brought us to the one of the utmost ''i.d.m.'' releases of this year, a true ''high-end electronic'' masterclass called:

01. ''return to zer0'' (1-track single, 2016)

a reborn alliance

we are starting november with something quite similar to our previous post (or maybe ''morrison's prophecy'') but, on the other hand, something well enough interesting on its own...
''anthony reuben alviso'' (a.k.a. ''a reborn alliance'', ''alvisious disease''), a ''electronic / post-trance / post-industrial / hip-hop / trip-hop / metal'' music maker from ''fresno'', california, u.s., & a most interesting offshoot of todays ''alternative electronic'' scene. he has sent us his story & it would be such a shame not to convey it in its fullness...
''a reborn alliance started in 2007, after my dad had shown me the love/hate relationship that  so strongly want to escape called 'f.l. studio'. until 2013, my previous name was 'alvisious disease'. my music was a mixture 'hip-hop' & 'trance' music then. after i released my first album as 'alvisious disease', i had received a lot of negative feedback. then, in 2012, my best friend, 'caleb', passed away. this was a point in my music where my outlook on everything changed. 'alvisious disease' was over, & i gave up on music. however, because i knew he'd probably break a guitar over my head for giving up, i had to get back into the groove of things. that was when my first album, 'a world demented', was in process. my new band name had to have meaning. a relationship between music & the soul sown back together, a purpose & it's reason brought back to life. two friends, one in spirit, together doing what they loved. 'a reborn alliance'.
as a 'a.r.a.', i've released two albums, 'a world demented', & 'the invisible man', & an e.p. mainly in the genre of 'metal' known as 'trust issues'. i'm currently working on my newest 'metal' album called 'wolves among strangers'.
since i love all music, i don't really have just one influence.
i've never had a show, & even if i did, i'd need an actual band. but my aim for this band is simple: i want to get big of course, but i'm a producer as well. i want to collaborate a lot & i want to do a lot in music. help others make music, have people join me in making music...''
now, we believe, after all of this, it is up to you people to check out this promising young artist... in honor to this we bring you:

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