Ďuro Ďurček This one knows what he's doing. Čau Struna! One of the reasons I can be at least partly proud for my country is it's electronic/experimental music scene and this man is a significant part of it.

Dalibor Kocián a.k.a. Stroon first caught our attention with his immersive sonic journey Ruine Noire EP in 2010. Since then, his sound (and a wide discography) has been consistently and rapidly evolving. Intense cinematic synth-scapes of his current release are built around percussive algorithms and hypnotizing dub-techno beats. Highly cinematic layers of sound are accompanied by dynamic vibraphone melodies and female choir vocals, which adds a touch of organics into this otherwise post-humanly cold, bass universe. As a well-informed, classically trained musician, Stroon tends to merge elements of contemporary classics, minimalism and club oriented electronica to juxtapositions which are clearly influenced by on-stage experience, both in terms of sound and structure. His latest effort 'Impermanence' proves this to a great extent, combining purely acoustic vibraphone pieces with their counterpoint – bass-heavy, industrial-like tracks softened by the vocalists of the Friendly Choir. Somewhere between you'll find electroacoustic world which brings them both together. As all Stroon's releases have had some emotional undertone, Impermanence is not an exception and it is kindly dedicated to the loving memory of his late father.

Track Name: Osiris (feat. Friendly Choir)
Hastily eating fog mouthful with spoon.
Imaginary spoon does not equal fork.
Squashed memories fall inbetween
silver matter
inbetween hydrogen molecules
bounce on them into stability.
when wanting to perceive their landing,
you get just
to wash
your face.
Track Name: V (feat. Friendly Choir)
two yours and two mine
two and mine
yours and two
two and two
yours and mine
unsteady trance
