Steve Roach
2017 Timeroom Digital (CD)

Released in 1983, TRAVELER is Steve's second solo and his first album on vinyl LP; a big accomplishment in and of itself back in the day. Recorded both in a large pro studio (José Feliciano's) and in the early Timeroom in Culver City California, this music revealed the young Steve Roach as a synthesist of limitless imagination and broad compositional depth. The thrust of his synthesized matrices evinces realms of austere metallic beauty, worlds yet to be explored, topographies hosting civilizations caught between the rugged girth of the past and the brilliance of a better future. Ideally, allow this music to simply flow over and through you. A travelogue of worlds both gorgeous and shadowed pieces of ambient expressionism that hint at the future of his vast explorations interface with ease. The pulsing title track "Traveler" is a quixotic exploration through a post-Schulze digi-zone of stormy synth riffs and sequencer majesty. Even the Tribal era in Steve's later work is birthed on pieces like T.B.C. and Mysteries Continue. Both NOW, Steve's debut release and TRAVELER launched Roach's qualitative talent onto an unsuspecting world presenting a harbinger of things to come in is massive body of work now expanding into its fourth decade. -- Darren Bergstein, ei

CORE is dynamic convergence of Steve's most essential organic, electronic, rhythmic and atmospheric elements, making this a stand-out solo release. The Summer of 2001 was a time of renewal as Roach turned away from all concerts, collaborations and other offers, directing his focus deep into the heart of this powerful journey, back to the core. 100% pure Steve Roach music. Created at the crossroads blending his various genre-bending phases of elegant futurism, tribal-ambient, classic sequencer trance and modern electronica. A literal cross-pollination of many aspects from the core of Steve's dynamic, emotion-filled soundworlds. CORE is a release that easily could have been created two weeks into the future.

The Passing
Steve Roach
2017 Timeroom Editions 39 (CD)
Reviewed by Synth & Sequences, Terra Relicta

The thematic essence contained in this new soundworld has haunted me since the late 90's, when I created a short piece for a compilation centered on the main harmonic chord cycle. Through the passage of time, the evanescent nature of this atmosphere only grew more poignant and deeper in emotional resonance. As life continues to be fully lived, blooming outwards and simultaneously mirrored with the passing of family, friends and animal companions, these emotions aligned and called on me. In a five-day period leading up to my birthday on February 16 2017, I fully immersed in the feeling this time-echo delivered, realizing this long-form piece in totality.

30th Anniversary Edition (Single CD)

Steve Roach
2017 Projekt PRO218 (CD)

Roach's 5th solo album features sophisticated, energetic sequencer music, similar to his earlier NOW and TRAVELER, ending with a haunting, melodic piece, "The Memory," more akin to his floating ambient work of the period. EMPETUS' full blown sequencer-based music illustrates a further evolution in the visceral side of Roach's music. Nine precise pieces that still sound fresh today. A favorite of sequencer music lovers.
