After Egypt and Cuba, Koch-Schütz-Studer have landed on a new beach, where the sound alchemists are at home and hold the earth in vibrations with their elixirs. Geographicall, they have docked in New York City, at the sound labs of the illbient artists, who brew their sound and rhythmic essences from loops of HipHop and Ragga, Break-beats and Soundtracks. Koch-Schütz-Studer bring in their roots of Jazz, Rock and Free Improvisation. Together with DJs M. Singe und I-Sound they create a mixture made of sensitive jazz-tinkering, ambient, hardcore and electronics. «Roots and Wires» has become Koch-Schütz-Studer's unerring and wayward contribution to the aesthetic of contemporary electronic underground culture.
