SteraStudent EPMp3s & jpegs
Rod20 is a new project from ROD, the Rotterdam based artist mostly known for his well received contributions to Ben Klock's Klockworks label. During the rise of Covid19 ROD decided to ditch the computer and dust off his vintage hardware collection, challenging himself to create strictly (analogue) hardware jams using only 1 synthesizer + 1 drum machine per track, recorded in a single take. Rod20 (as in 2020 as well as ROD 2.0) kicked off in style with ROD2001 'In The Mix', a 13 track Mix CD (also pressed on 20 highly limited 3x LP copies) sold personally at the height of the pandemic, followed by 2 conceptual mini-albums 'The Hidden Notes Project (Part 1 & 2)' released on Jeff Mills' Axis Records. Now with most 2022 dance floors in full swing again, it's time to unleash the Rod20 project in full, starting with ROD2002 'SteraStudent EP', a personal tribute to 1 of of ROD's biggest inspirations and mentors in the world of techno; Sterac (aka Steve Rachmad). No computer. No edits. No nonsense. Just pure & raw stripped down (90's) basement techno cuts designed to make you sweat.
