Steve's new 2001 solo release, CORE, is a pure flow journey of electro-organic pieces drawn from the molten core within the Timeroom right up to mid-August. CORE has evolved into perhaps one of the most focused tribal-trance-electronic releases from Steve to date. This summer has been a vital and renewing time as Roach turned away from all concerts, collaborations and other offers, directing his attention deep into the inner core of where the music emerges. Setting out with the intention to find new sounds, Roach created a dynamic convergence of energies and currents that have been running through his music over the past 20 years. Adding to the vital live feel of the pieces is Steve's process of melting it all together, working more like a movie maker at this stage trying dozens of different complete edits of the "film," shaping the story like never before.
"CORE's ebb and flow unites the evolution and search for continuity in life and the sublime in sound and emotion. The language of sound revealed on CORE culminates the passion for acknowledging the hidden past and looking forward with innovation... Subtle and intense as CORE marks a leap into adventure by adding as yet undiscovered elements to an ever-expanding pallet of sounds. Essential." -- vidnaObmana
"CORE, the album represents a pinnacle of achievement in the tribal-electronic sound of Roach. These sound elements are based on many years of Roach working in the field of electronic music production. The portal has been opened to fuse these elements into a firey mix of mind-bending atmospheres and thundering body rhythms. Feel the sheer dynamics, feel the atmosphere but above all feel the power. It has arrived." -- Gary Andrews, Sequences Magazine (UK) and Ambient Visions online magazine
