Elemental RecordsOriginally started in 1992, Portland Oregon based Elemental Records quickly gained notoriety for the releases of the NorthWest UnGrunge, and NorthWest PostGrunge compilations. Uniting up-and-coming bands from Idaho, Washington, and Oregon - such as Black Happy, Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Medicine Hat, Nero's Rome, Rorschach Test, Artis the Spoonman, Built To Spill, Rubberneck, Jolly Mon, Sweaty Nipples, and Floater - just to name a few. Elemental Records soon became a buzz in the Underground / Indie / Local Music scene, as Floater received nominations to the preliminary level of the Grammy's from NARAS (National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences) in 1995 under Best Rock Performance for "Sink" and in 1996 under Best Alternative Performance for "Glyph." (Prelims are determined by nominations from the NARAS members).

1999 was a year of transition, under new ownership and fresh enthusiasm, Elemental scaled down its roster, and forged ahead- releasing 7 new albums in 5 years, and distributing a host of local Portland/ Seattle bands. Floater's "Stone By Stone" was released on Halloween 10/31/2006, and also includes a DVD behind the scenes look into Floater in the studio, live performances, interviews with the fans, and the band.
