LOW STOCK LEVEL
"At a time when national borders are under scrutiny and politics make the loudest noise, Run Stop Restore is in an advantageous position. The duo actually holds dual citizenship. The studio-strong Marc Houle resides in Windsor, Ontario, Canada while Troy Pierce -- the DJ of the group and recent Berlin transplant -- spent the last few years in Brooklyn, NY. Nonetheless, like happy accidents, creativity is born out of chance meetings, even in Windsor. Their introduction was by a mutual friend (and third member of Run Stop Restore) -- now the Berlin-based Magda. Even with the help of technology, living in different cities meant their work took time to come into shape and form. Houle, the analog mastermind, delivered dozens of tracks to Pierce, who then edited, chopped, enhanced, and boiled them down to a select few, putting a more current flair on the production. That's when things really started to get. Musically speaking it's the past more so than the present that has influenced them. Kraftwerk, Human League, Berlin, Bauhaus, and some Baby Ford -- it's in there."
