After a string of successful production projects -- including a highly regarded mixtape series, remixes for indie favorites including Modest Mouse, sound design for the Seattle Art Museum, and compositions for television ads -- Scientific American presents ten tracks that capitalize on the fresh sounds and dynamic production of IDM without sacrificing the music's soul. Strong For The Future mixes elements of electronic dance music, hip hop, and rock into a single hybrid. With beautiful electronic compositions that could fit neatly on The Leaf Label, chop-and-paste hip hop-influenced productions reminiscent of music on Warp, or classic vocal tracks that sound like The Flaming Lips produced by Boards of Canada, this is one the most expertly produced releases in the Mush catalog.After establishing himself as a member of Seattle's indie rock scene with his band Hush Harbor, sound designer Andrew Rohrmann began using the computer as his primary instrument. His solo productions, which incorporate elements of electronic dance music, hip hop, and rock, have been used by The Seattle Art Museum, the Sound Unseen Film Festival in Minneapolis and for television ads promoting Volkswagen, Hewlett-Packard, and Discover. He has completed critically praised remixes for a number of indie favorites including Modest Mouse, 764-Hero, and Red Stars, and shared the stage with Dabrye, Four Tet, Boom Bip, and Manitoba. Scientific American is poised to join the ranks of the top producers in electronic music.
