about

With "Raum 1", Simon Rouge releases the first part of a trilogy that has evolved across numerous studios since his last release in 2017. The nine-track introductory album of the trilogy reflects the start of a musical journey and explores the central themes of conclusion, awakening and change.

Parallels to his earlier works are present, such as the thundering, industrial-like "four on the floor" rhythms, interwoven with heavy percussion and driving melodies. However, there are also new, more experimental, sometimes playful, at other times ambient breakbeat tracks, which enrich "Raum 1" with some of his earliest ideas. The result is an album that has all the rough edges typical of Simon Rouge but also heads in a new, more modern direction, paving the way for the second and third part of the trilogy.

On " Raum 1" Simon Rouge worked more with speech samples and integrated them into the tracks in his distinctive style. Both breakbeat tracks "Freier Fall" and "Ice Fields" play with voice samples from pop culture, while Simon added his own vocals for "Komm Mal Her". In "Tuvan" the artist was inspired by the throat singing from the village, bearing the same name, in southern Siberia, giving the piece its unmistakable character. This production feature, which can also be found on other tracks, is a recurring theme throughout the album, rendering it one of the most defining elements of "Raum 1".

The cover design for "Raum 1" originated from the talented hand of Phil aka PHLY. From the graphic designer's various proposals, a minimalistic and yet playful concept was chosen in consultation with Simon Rouge. This concept clearly emphasises the musical direction of "Raum 1" due to its technical character and simultaneously leaves plenty of room for interpretation and adaptation thanks to its timeless design.
