Steve Stoll is an American Techno/Electronic music artist from New York city. He is the owner of the underground label Proper n.y.c. which he founded in 1994. Over the years steve has colloborated with the likes of Patrick Codneys (Front 242), Pete Namlook, Ken Ishii, and Damon Wild, to name a few. He has remixed everyone from Hardfloor to Gary Numan, and continues his techno exploration to this day by finding inspiration in the originators of electronic sound, firmly rooted in modular analog synthesis, his own one-off circuit designs, and strict philosopy of mixing tracks live without overdubs.
Solo In Place is the follow up to last years highly praised ‘Praxis’ album. The album features collaborations with Mike Olsen – Cello player for renowned band Arcade Fire. DJ / Producer Nina Kraviz contributes spoken word poetry on ‘Breathe Out’
& Fountains Of You’
In his own words Steve says : It’s meant to be a kind of meditation piece, I mixed most of it literally sitting out in a forest at night, the volume of my mixing let me hear all the insects, trees and critters around me, perhaps a heightened sense of hearing since it was so quiet. I was drawing on a lot of Eno concepts of amplitude of music as well.
