By popular demand, r.roo‘s critically-acclaimed new album ‘mgnovenie‘ is finally available on CD.
After 4 albums, an EP, several remixing, collaboration, and compilation appearances in just under two years, the prolific r.roo
finally crosses the Tympanik threshold with his finest work yet: his new album titled ‘mgnovenie‘.
With equal focus on atmosphere and beats, r.roo
creates a definitive sound that grips and pulls on the unsuspecting listener. Shadowed in soulful piano movements, twitches of violin, random static and strange radio voices, accented perfectly by crushing beats and a meticulous stitching of glitchy misfires, ‘mgnovenie’ (translated as “The Moment”) proves itself as the ideal soundtrack for intentional mental defections.
"...a marvelous interplay of atmospheres they grips you and carried you to the limit. The album is an extraordinary composition of beats, random static, sometimes sad melodies, but also hopeful soundscapes. Everything fits together perfectly." - Nothing But Hope And Passion
"...if the idea of a gifted young producer pushing the electro-acoustic envelope to create a fully-realised mood appeals to you, you’re in for an absolute treat." - IDie:YouDie
"Let mgnovenie gradually penetrate your every cell, until its rhythm becomes your heartbeat, until the glitch becomes your synapse, and the bass becomes your step. This is the land where r.roo
paints with sounds. Best of 2012." - Headphone Commute
"‘Mgnovenie’ is a wonderfully bleak album, not necessarily drenched in black, but one that is constructed out of many shades of charcoal. ...one of my better listens so far this year." - Blackaudio [9/10]
"...mixes very different and opposite influences, but it perfectly matches. ...a rather accessible and beautiful sound." - Side-Line
"...constantly walks the line between being all out dark and maintaining an accessible approach. "Mgnovenie" is pathos-heavy, but doesn't fall into kitsch, and fits well with the calmer side of Tympanik's roster." - Ad Noiseam
"r.roo has constructed a lovely world on 'mgnovenie'. ...well worth adding to your short list of music that proves you can nod your head and stroke your chin at the same time." - Igloomag
