Bottling the sun

So what is it that makes an event attractive? Is it the big names? Is it the atmosphere? Is it the people? Well, the Electronic Circus has it all and, additionally, always nice surprises. On tonight's playlist, two more tracks teasing for the pleasing. First, by Vile Electrodes from The Future Through a Lens, and second, Bernd Kistenmacher calling for Utopia. And both live on stage at October 4th in Gütersloh. But there is more great music on, like a track by VAD from his latest album. And then we have a goodie from last century, Bronx Shadows by Paul Lawler. And the final magnificent treat comes from Sundown Cafe who just release their second collaboration album Sunset Reverie.


Artistic activities

Must be April again with all the weather going bananas. At least, the real EM fans stay loyal organizing the 7th installment of the Electronic Circus in Gütersloh on October 4. And so we start tonight's edition with two tracks of Circus acts, first by Alerick Project from their album One Way and second Jerome Froese with his friends known as Loom from their album The Tree Hates the Forest. So, yeah, cool stuff coming up in about 6 weeks. Of course, there is more on the roster. Like Elrox with his latest album Lucent Echoes. Then we have a teaser for the upcoming re-release of Shadow of the Wind by Bekki Williams. Also, the new compilation from Midnight Radio number 24 is in with the contribution by Jesper Sorensen. And our closer is an old friend, Mikael Fyrek with A Thousand Years and One.


Placid spaces

Life is fast, faster than ever. Sometimes it feels like gusts sweeping the hours away. Great to have some place to find cover, to hide from time storming over your head. So wonderful to have sounds of serenity to ease ones mind. Like the tracks in tonight's edition, where we start with North Hive and their album Immersion. Then we have Alobar's In a Snowbound Land. From the Ambient Music Facebook compilation we have Rob Cosh's contribution. A bit surprising comes a track ba Jerome Froese from his Cases of Recurrence. Not so surprising a wonderful piece by Steve Roach and his new album The Delicate Forever. And closing with a real treat from Blau by Lutz Thuns.


Traditionally modern

Yes, we're going folk tonight! Well, not really, but on this episode you will get some really nice tracks in the traditional electronic music style. But remember, it's the style not the sound, its children so to say, not its clones. And off we start with two Fellowes, F/R-F and their Structures of Paradise. We have a teaser on soon to come new music on Interstellarponic by Bouvetøya. Followed by a reminder on the Midnight Radio Compilation 22 with Joost Egelie. More teasing, this time for a live event on August 30th with TMA and friends, having a track from RAL 5002. And finally, another new album release by Realtime named Live in Cologne.


Lounging asound

Bumming around in a sun-lounger, watching the few clouds in the sky that dare to fight the sun but with no earthly chance to win. Fitting to this mood, a nice bunch of electronic tracks to set the scene to music. And as we go mellow tonight, best to start with some music from MellowJet, where we have Ähnlich Sein by Elektrohandle. Best matching, as well, Stefan Erbe's Legacies. A bit more abstract then, with Fey by Opaeq. Pacing up a bit with Magickal Era's Evolution and Autism by The Depose. Another laid-back tune from AD music's new sampler, where we have The Kobolt Projekt in the show. And finally something a bit unexpected, Midnight Tracks by Walter Roos.


Winding down

Thankfully, the short heat wave is over for now and not only I but also my computer has no need for heavy breathing anymore. So what is best than having some music going easy on one's mind? Well, this show has the right music for this mood. And it lifts off with Kikai's contribution to the sampler Sehnsucht. We the experience Forever Changes, the new album by Claudio Merlini. Which is followed by Erik Wøllo's new EP Tundra. A look back to the 90s is brought to us by Wayne Gratz and his Blue Ridge. Then having again brand new stuff, which is Compuctio by Johan Tronestam. And also the closer is newer than new, with the upcoming album Herrscher im Orbit by ebia.


Sweat cure

Oh boy, I am melting away. Yeah, I may be a mollycoddle whining at 30C, but this warmth simply does not fit with my body's desires. Nevertheless, hot music on tonight's show with a certain beat. Maybe a little track to recover in the middle. Starting Environmental with Stefan Erbe. Going beyond the Listening Booth with City at Worlds End and Ætheros later on. Having some fun with Opaeq in between. We then Push Against New Fakes when playing from Any Color You Can't See. And closing up with Lucent Echoes by Elrox.


Over the rainbow

I have fresh and upcoming music and a joyful look back on tonight's playlist, all in all quite easy going this time. We start with a preview on Cantarella, the upcoming album by Z. Then we have a new compilation by the Tunguska Electronic Music Society named Craters: Cheko, where we have contributions from Radiotuman, Al K, and AoL. Then a short backflash to some Rainbow Serpent treat from Stranger. And closing up with Liplug's Blinker.


Get well shaken

Now get this, your sitting around with your headphones on and suddenly unexpected sounds catch your attention. Tonight’s show is full of wonders. Music that broadens your experiences in structure and sound. A break out of common electronica, and yet familiar in many places. Upfront the second half of Many Sides of Music, the double album by Yves Potin / Jazzcomputer.org. Second, get beaten by Foehrb and Die Tugend von Heute. Then listen carefully to Zinkl and his Cockaigne. And surely enjoy Ways to Travek by Michaël Bijker. We also have another track from the iapets Compilation 2014 by The Redundant Rocker. Moreover, the Mantra is given to us by the Perry Ferya Band. And in the end, there is Adakekema’s Insolito. Suspense-packed music all along.


Lovely Places

It’s not only that ambient releases start to stack up at my place, but I also feel the urge for something more serene at the moment. Well, it’s not really that serene, but quite mind drifting energy in tonight’s music. And this all starts right with the Sultry Kissing Lounge and the man and his guitar Markus Reuter. Then we have a compilation by the Tunguska Electronic Music Society with two contributions, one by Simiram and the next by Soft Note. More new stuff by Ivan Black going for The Somnambulist. We then take Excursion number 3 with our dear friend Altus. And we meet Mark Seelig again this time with Loren Nerell painting the Tree of Life. Finally, one half of the double album Many Sides of Music by Yves Potin a.k.a. Jazzcomputer.org. Happy floating.


Broekhuis, Keller & Schönwälder

Tonight we have the license to chill on syndae, with a bunch of recent releases and reworks. And we have a hint on an EM event again. This time in July, one month to go, with BKS, whom of we surely have some teaser on tonight's show. But first, a look back to the last century, where we Go for it with Megabyte. More great music by Erik Seifert & Josef Steinbüchel and their Softlock. We also show that moonbooter is Still Alive with him on the show. Then a track from Eglise de Betzdorf, one of the latest releases by Broekhuis, Keller and Schönwälder. Robert Fox, too, who has done a re-work of Asfafa. And finally E-Musikgruppe Lux Ohr and an exceprt from Spiralo.


Castle Brederode

Summer is coming with big beams, and so are spacey and sequency tracks. At least at the castle of Brederode you will be able to experience quite a bunch of them, as a little festival is taking place on June 27 featuring Free Arts Lab, Spyra, and Planet of the Arps. And to give you a little teaser, we have Spyra and Free Arts Lab on tonight's show right at the beginning. Then there is the new album by Byron Metcalf and Mark Seelig named Intention right behind. Followed by DigitalSimplyWorld who captured the Cosmic Ocean First Contact for us. Next, the new Walter Roos album beaming us into The 9th Dimension. And finally we will perceive A Scent of Jasmine when listening to e-Tiefengrund.
