STRATOSPHERE-Lost In Unity-(Escape 3 Organisation-Belgium-c21-1992)

In the early 90’s stratosphere started experimenting with music. Using analog  tape devices combined with synth sounds, the first songs were created. After these first steps, audio recordings were added that complemented and defined the typical stratosphere feel. Spheric soundcapes with harmonic melodies became the signature sound of stratosphere. This resulted in a few releases in the next years together with some live performances. Feeding on these experiences, more acoustic instruments (including guitar) were added which created an even more harmonic sound.
After a decade of silence, and a dramatic change in life, stratosphere picked up music again. Using his experience as a sound and recording engineer, his interest in music creation returned. This time, only guitar and bass guitar were used, in combination of a wide range of pedal effects. Simplifying his working method, resulted in an number of new tracks. Due to the changes in life, a darker side is introduced, but the typical sound remains. Soundscapes and harmonics are still the base of his music. So a new era has started for stratosphere returning to the music scene with a fresh view and renewed motivation.”(from his excellent webpage)
Escape 3 organisation was founded in 1990 and operated as an independent tapelabel for industrial music for some years. Since a few years it is mainly a platform for obscure new electronica projects that deal with the combination between industrial electronic music and new forms of urban electronica like breakbeats, drum’n bass and technoïd hybrid forms. We are grouping some acts/projects and promote them, cause we know you are out there, we know you want it, and we will make them come to your place. Prepare for it. You want to know about their releases, want to hear something, want to book them, want to see them, want to learn more about them ? Just go ahead.

Enjoy it.
