Veteran NYC producer Steve Stoll ditches the dance-floor in favor of Radiophonic-style analog explorations. Praxis, released via Ireland’s Psychonavigation, is heavily indebted to 1950’s pioneers like Delia Derbyshire and Daphne Oram. Considering the current popularity of modular electronics with labels like Modern Love and Ghost Box, Stoll’s reverential work has arrived right on time. BBC Workshop heads should enjoy the claustrophobic ambience of opener ‘Praxis I’ and the off-kilter lope of ‘Praxis XV’. Stoll’s dub-techno roots are not always far from the surface though, as evidenced in the rising, rhythmic tension of ‘Praxis IV’.

Steve Stoll - Praxis [8/10] Clash Magazine February 2014

Using Blair Witch scares, keeping danger in the corners, veteran New York techno stalker Stoll coaxes a largely freeform, 49-minute monument of space-shuttled silent screams. Bleak and concrete, inundated with sine waves, feedback and coded language interfering against the creak of cemetery gates - yet all staged logically and far from impenetrably - the crash landing of machinery is able to reach moments of peace by burning itself out, transfixed by the starry night and rebooting towards a more placid existence. Anxiety returning to count down the last rites of quiet decay is the cockroach in Stoll digging in, a lord of winter desolation.
