RAPOON is the work of prolific multi-media artist, sound explorer, and notorious UK ambient gangster Robin Storey. His output is nothing short of phenomenal, having released 44 CD's since 1992 as Rapoon through various labels in Europe and North America, and an additional 24 releases under his prior incarnation zoviet*france. As a painter, print-maker, and visual artist his work has been exhibited in major galleries all over the world.

His recordings are filled with exotic blends of electronically manipulated sounds and off-world rhythms using tablas, wooden drums, metal drums, pipes, flutes, didgeridoos, guitars, sitar, kelimbas and various other odds and ends. Rapoon's work is infinitely sublime and infinitely sensuous. Literally metabolic alchemy, it negotiates the open spaces of sacred history, drawing upon Indian ragas, Arabic prayer calls and African rhythmic whispers.

Recently he has been heavily involved with the downtempo/ambient scene, performing regularly through all of Europe and releasing the beat-heavy disc RAPOON vs. KINDER ATOM through highly respected Vienna label Klanggalerie.

Visit for more detailed information.
Check here to listen to mp3 samples of Rapoon's music.

Present Scenario:
Intimate Productions invites you to join us on June 2nd, 2001 for No Strukture. This unique event was created specifically to incorporate both the toughness of hard edged dancefloor jungle and the uplifting vibes of Drum&Bass in a new, stylish two room environment. Leave your jackets and preconceptions at home, and come fully prepared to celebrate alongside some of the best production and DJ talent that Toronto has to offer as we officially bring in the summer of 2001 in true Intimate style.
