trackermusician StereoMan [http://amp.dascene.net/detail.php?view=7071 StereoMan at Amiga Music Preservation] ] , a member of the demoscenegroup NOiSE.
Georgi Marinov first got involved in composing
electronic musicand the demoscenein the late 1990s, through the work of Brothomstatesand Lacklusteramong others. After a 5-year netlabelmembership in NOiSE ("New Objectives in Sound Exploration) Marinov was signed up to deFocus recordsfor his first vinyl single - "Ikae", and debut album "Enveloped".

Esem is a regular guest on the Lithuanian label
Sutemos's "Intelligent Toys" series, featured alongside Vladislav Delay, Digitonal, Maps and Diagrams, Ulrich Schnauss, and others.
Esem employs both
