Weekend, Jan. 18-19, 2020 – Steve Roach & Azam Ali

Steve Roach and Azam Ali from Tribal to Trance Electronics This Weekend on Echoes.

Weekend listeners take a deep dive into the world of Steve Roach. The prolific electronic artist has been part of Echoes for all of its 30 years and more. We’ve chronicled his electronic evolution more than anyone. Steve released several albums in 2019 including Bloom Ascension and Trance Archeology. After several years of modular synth strategies, Ambient-Tribal music returns. We talk about them and new directions with Steve Roach on Echoes,

Some weekend listeners will also hear Iranian singer Azam Ali explores her love of modern electronic music in creating her new album, Phantoms, her first with all-English lyrics. It was Echoes CD of the Month in October, 2019 and our number two album in The Best of Echoes 2019. John Diliberto talks to Azam Ali about a sound born from social and political darkness, as well as electronic grooves.
