[b]:: NEW :: Roshi – Roshi [XBRCD41][/b]
Roshi’s eponymous debut album moves through different genres of electronic dance music skillfully blending influences from stoner rock, electro, techno, drum ´n bass and even dubstep. Roshi builds a multilayered musical experience providing new aural dimensions with each listening.
In the past ten years Roshi´s views and professional knowledge has influenced many productions. His debut solo album represents the most refined form of his vision. As a whole the release is much more than the sum of its parts. The album is an ode to life, a comment on this world, where everyone should rethink their direction and relationship to themselves.
The album features noted guests, among them Finnish rapper [b]Redrama[/b], [b]Jere Garcia[/b] (Accu), [b]Jan Rechberger[/b] (Amorphis), [b]Mikko Happo[/b] (Hidria Spacefolk).
Behind the name Roshi is the producer [b]Kristo Tuomi[/b] (1975-2009). He has done a respectable over ten year long career in musical production and gained a reputation of being a visionary and uncompromising producer. iDJ Magazine selected him as one of “the ones to watch in 2009”. He has been involved projects such as [b]Koe[/b], [b]The Jar[/b], [b]Roshi & The Junkmen[/b] and [b]Stealth Unit Sound Collective[/b]. Besides Exogenic Breaks Records he has released on labels such as [b]Botchit Breaks[/b] and [b]Nine2Five Recordings[/b]. The album is released posthumously.
