Project • 2014—Ongoing

‑otron is Adam Jansch's non-vocal electronic studio project, formulated around a mix of sampling and sound synthesis which suggests a flavour of atmospheric electronics tinged with a rhythm of trip hop. Within its sonic walls you may hear strains of Boards of Canada, DJ Shadow and Portishead.

    8 Dec 2017

    Introducing Prism Exhilarated, the follow up to 2016's doze on, and the continuation of -otron's denatured sampletronic sound (think Boards of early Autechre feasting on Soundwave's favourite infotainment). It is also the world's very first album release to integrate Prysm technology by Soundary.

    8 Jul 2016

    Take the following ingredients: the sonic underpinnings of Calexico’s track ‘No Doze’; ambiance and rhythms of classic Portishead-style trip-hop; inflections of mid-90s IDM (Autechre’s Amber for example); dismembered expressions reminiscent of DJ Shadow’s Endtroducing.

    Infuse these for six months with a developmental production approach focussed on Native Instruments’ Maschine, then slather onto two sides of premium repro’d compact cassette tape. The result? The second LP from ‑otron: doze on.

    20 Mar 2015

    Voltronic/Galaxer is the debut album of sampling electronicist ‑otron and is the result of multiplying Maschine Studio with an abundance of samples from the classic Transformers animated series.

    The LP was crafted as a two-sided affair: one side of beats, the other of atmospheres. A limited-edition orange cassette release therefore seemed natural (alongside a standard digital download).
