Roger Rotor

Real Name:
Roger Baumer
Switzerland born Roger Rotor has been involved with music since the early 1980s with various music styles, even going into the realm of death metal. As his interest in other genres increased, Roger Rotor has become involved with a growing list of artists, resulting in a lengthy discography and myriad of sounds to his credit. However, it wasn't until 1997 that Roger Rotor came to work on his own. The music produced now is a far cry from the metal of before, having moved into a realm of minimalist IDM. Tracks pulsate with dense electronics and rhythmic percussion, creating a thick atmosphere of trance inducing grooves. Changes take shape gradually, beginning often with a simple sequence. Few additional sounds are introduced, and undergo a variety of manipulations resulting in a multitude of tonal shifts. This makes for tracks that are highly hypnotic, mildly harmonic, and perfect for those who like to vanish into the music on a late-night dance floor, surrounded by solid waves of sound.
