"The Grounded Sound is one of appetizingly organic fusion, with one hand ardently fixed on ambient, minimalist tendencies and the other in the processed complexities afforded by the digital age. Yet, this is hardly a boring middle ground, and far from a tepid reaction to the late-90's 'drill & bass' phenomena. Nor is this music a continuation of so-called 'glitch' or 'clicks n' cuts'culture, as there is little incidental or superfluous about it, though it often incorporates elements of concrete, accidental, and prepared analog samples in thoroughly 21st century fashion. It is a highly personal cross-section of modern music that moves us. The brittle and delicate avant-garde status of Greg Davis, simple pop leanings of Ogurusu Norihide, and intricate sample manipulation of Soplerfo have never sounded so relevant. With artists hand-selected over several years of listening by journalist and Grounded head Andrew Schrock, this subtle release will captivate with its intense, yet accessible, charm. Features almost all exclusive tracks." Artist include: E*Rock, Melodium, Blatter, Misterinterrupt, Ogurusu Norihide, State Music, Emotional Joystick, Don Mennerich, Entropy Struct, Greg Davis, Soplerfo, and Charles Atlas.
