Experiential composer Austin Rockman paints upon the canvas of silence with seemingly supernatural projections of sound. These amalgamations point towards tones of an almost uncertain origin and are very much characterized by a certain place in time. His debut album 'Plum God' represents a transitory state. An uncertainty, which brings along states of confusion, exhaustion, intensity.. coexisting within these emotions resides hope and the inevitable beauty and gravity of consciousness. We are swayed like trees against an invisible wind, currents that press upon us, like shores, constantly reoccurring and reemerging from a seemingly infinite source. Beyond us. This elusive control navigates our existence, and in this sway we must have trust in ourselves, this is only the beginning..
As Austin Rockman's debut on Mahorka "Plum God" has been revisited, on tape, and with the "bonus" track (tape322), this is only the beginning..
'Plum God is a beautiful reminder of human fragility, and a welcomed breath of fresh air in an environment too often symbolized by a seductive superficiality.ʼ - Massimo Ricci/Touching Extremes
‘Beautifully mangled sound rests on the periphery of conscious awareness, pulling the mind back from untethered states with anxious and processed machinelike errors and blurred distortions of texture.ʼ - Tone Harvest
‘The symbiosis he develops between the beckoning of the music and the willing acquiescence of the ear and mind makes this album a bracing experience.ʼ -Andrew Forell/Dusted Magazine

Here we get to see the memories that The Caretaker wasn't able to tell us about before his passing, but which by some miracle we get to see. If only we could hear what he had to say about them. pixelperfectbc
This is a momentous collection! Rohs has been consistently excellent in its offerings throughout its catalogue. I’m proud to have bought this extra super compilation album full the type of beautiful music that I love to mix and share on Mixcloud & Soundcloud. I cheekily used the Summer19 code, so this is simply doubly awesome! Checkout Bethelina’s Dub Techno Radio monthly podcast for much more music of this high calibre! Bethelina_DJ
