Contemporary corporative media have a tendency to arrest society’s attention and when it is captured - infect it. This is an ideal environment for cultivating phobias and panic, when the infected individual gets in contact with environment, which doesn’t correspond to the coded standards of security. STROPS (bee - hive) is occupied with breaking these codes, using the unused arms of media arsenal for creating new space, where these arms are turned against their creators.

strops likuma burts

A torn out page of a lifetime log. the era put upon your sholders to fracture barricade down to the core of indifference. the law disintegrates words and puts them back together again for the comfort of its own self-sufficiency. words calcificate the pavement and it ceases to be red and saline. words written in a language of defeat...but a reminiscence of the LETTER OF THE LAW.

strops kapotie raksti

Contemplation of death from different angles. A dualistic conception portrayed through diverse filters of experience. Energy becomes peace, and exhaustion - laxity. This is an interactaction of two projects that enhance each other due their sonic roots.

strops teorija

Illegal trip in time and space, that draws analogue sound paralleles between G. Orwell's work "1984" and Latvia in 1999. An intermediate between utopia and reality. Transcendental ambient composition with tranquilizing intonation. Sombre string harmonics, distorted crepitation and cold noise breezes with interludes of imperative allocution.

strops slepenie

Complete cycle of all six sufferings in 16 episodes from a new lv industrial recruit. The multiform debut embraces both home listening and club-oriented material thus offering a polychrome sound spectre of cryo-ambient vibes with metallic percussion stinges, harmonic key sections and drum'n'noise elements, all interlaced by lyrics of dramatic doom. Listen and bleed.
