Zero Eight

video short (audio release available now on TygrRawwkRcrds)

Zero Eight presents a landscape that slips in and out of time and space, inviting viewers to journey through a shifting abstract graphic narrative that offers tantalizing glimpses of a possible future.

Rontronik’s work artfully employs ambient music as a sonic backdrop, creating an immersive, ethereal experience that transports viewers to another realm, providing a symbiotic blend of the audio and the visual. The artfully woven threads evoke emotion, inspire contemplation and offer a horizon both alien and still distantly familiar. The experience affords the viewer the rare space to lose themselves…

About

Rontronik (Ron Croudy) is not just a music producer and DJ/Controllerist; he’s a sonic architect weaving beats and melodies into immersive experiences. His journey into the realms of electronic music began over a decade ago, fueled by a passion for diverse sonic landscapes and a relentless drive for experimentation and innovation.

Based in New York City, Rontronik is more than a mere artist—he’s a sonic explorer, pushing the boundaries of sound with each creation. His experimental musical odyssey began to take shape in 1999 when he unveiled his first two tracks on the groundbreaking compilation “Töshöklabs Presents: Dated,” adopting the monikers “technique:concrete” and “Cardboardmen.” These early forays into the electronic frontier laid the foundation for what would become a rich and eclectic body of work.
In August of 2007, Rontronik marked a significant milestone with the release of his debut solo EP, “Magma,” on Töshöklabs. This release showcased his prowess as a producer, blending hypnotic rhythms, pulsating basslines, and ethereal textures into a mesmerizing sonic tapestry.
But Rontronik’s musical journey doesn’t stop there. He’s a relentless collaborator, constantly seeking out new voices and perspectives to enrich his sonic palette. From exclusive production collaborations to innovative remixes, his catalog of digital releases continues to expand, captivating listeners with its boundless creativity.

Influences include Model 500, Psyche, Autechre, Future Sound of London, Laraaji, flying Saucer Attack, Acid Mothers Temple, and Global Communication

Beyond the studio, Rontronik is a hidden gem in the electronic music community and a “DJ’s DJ” spinning live for 20+ years. His “Radio Rontronik” podcast series invites listeners on a sonic voyage through his musical universe, while his weekly DJ set, “Futurecurrent,” on DeepspaceRadio keeps the beats flowing and the dance floors alive.

But Rontronik’s creative endeavors extend beyond the realm of music. As the co-founder of Smartbomb, a boutique creative studio, he channels his passion for innovation into providing creative direction for a diverse clientele. From collaborating with legendary artists like Ghostface Killah, A Tribe Called Quest, and KRS-One to shaping the visual identities of rising stars, Rontronik’s influence reverberates far beyond the confines of the studio.

To experience the sonic tapestries of Rontronik is to embark on a open-format journey into the heart of sound itself. Stream his music on Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, and immerse yourself in the boundless creativity of one of electronic music’s most visionary voices.
