Excellently labeled sounds

While many independent artists nowadays publish their works via their own channels, there still are labels out there, helping out when artists focus on creating music only. Many of those labels use up-to-date media for propaganda publicity and distribution, like social networks and online music stores. A special kind among them are netlabels, who usually offer music as name your price releases or for free. While this sounds like a non-business, their actual goal is to help getting music being heard. Providing a common channel for free artists to be discovered. Recently, it was netlabel day, hence, celebrating the existence and value of these labels. I often do have music from netlabels on the show, and most of tonight's edition are. With the exception of the first, which introduces the label Legacy of Thought to syndae with a single. Have some fun time with wonderful tracks by Time Away (Library of Souls), Abyssal Plains (One Synth), Axiom 23 (Origins), MacroNoise (Continuum), aeuum (Access Frame: Collectivity), Kumharas (Kaosmetric).


Playlist:

Time Away - Library of Souls (Library of Souls)
Abyssal Plains - Salamander (One Synth)
Axiom 23 - Higher Communication (Hyper Script) (Origins)
MacroNoise - Saturn Dust (Continuum)
aeuum - Explored (Access Frame: Collectivity)
Kumharas - You Hear'em Dreaming (Kaosmetric)

Soundful recuperation

It's been a busy week, right after the Schwingungen Scheunenparty in Ahlen. And I am especially happy to have all votes in for the anniversary CD. There is lots to do, before the CD is finished. And soon I will post about the artists who will be on the CD. Of course, I will also have some of the tracks on the show, but not for this edition. I need some rest. Slow down the pace and recharge my batteries. Yes, it's ambient time. Not the most quiet ambient, though. Tracks that still tickle my brain and provide some energy. Have a wonderful evening with tracks by Meg Bowles (Evensong: Canticles for the Earth), In the Branches & Bluetech (Zero Gravity), Tikki Masala (Chilam Impacts 2), Glenn Sogge & Lutz Thuns (Wanderings), Three Fields (Tells).

Spiced up sounds

What kind of driver are you? Is this reflected in the music you listen to while driving? When driving to and from work, I do not care a lot. Maybe this is related to working on this podcast, as I tend to listen to many different styles and sounds these times. When I plan for a longer tour, though, I usually choose some more chilling albums. I am not sure, if aggressive music makes (or suites?) an aggressive driver. There is much going on in traffic, busy and annoying enough, so I prefer the music to relax and cool me down. Not too relaxing of course, don't want to fall asleep at the wheel. So, tonight's edition has the appropriate selection for my ride, as tomorrow I am on the road to Ahlen for the Scheunenparty. And here I found some great fitting tracks by Siddh and Ox7gen feat. Nathan Thomas (Soul Curry), Redox (Binary Forecast), Kaya Project and Noodreem (Zero Gravity), Pulselovers (The Shildam Hall Tap).

Oh, and a short note about the syndae CD: It's getting closer. Some votes are not in, yet, but will be soon. Stay tuned.

The sound's afoot

It's always funny how things turn out different than one thinks. So, best seems to be to have low expectations and get surprised. A truism? Maybe. But it worked out for a planning session this week, so I am quite happy. And I am also happy with the progresson the syndae CD, where I am currently designing the cover. On this, I had some discussions with a designer, of course having some further ideas on details but overall was positive. It sounded honest as well. So only short time until I know about the tracks which made it to the CD. And then it goes to production. Meanwhile, there is an event coming up next week, which is the Scheunenparty in Ahlen, Germany. You still have a few days to register for the event, and tonight's edition starts with two teasers for the live acts, Karl Hefner & Hugh Lagerfeld (Live set B-Wave Festival) and moonbooter (EVIL 18DE). There is more great music to be heard, having tracks by Pretty Glass Folk (Lights), Blinky Blinky Computerband (Four in One), Escape Into (The Mirror), and Hollywood Burns (Invaders).

Sacrosound

When I was done with last weeks show, I knew immediately that I have to have some traditional, sequencing stuff up next. Well, easy to browse through my current catalog but not that easy to pick the right tracks for it. I think I found a pleasing selection for tonight. Also, the day for decision is coming closer, the votes are coming in for the syndae celebration CD. And I am quite curious about what the jury has to say about the submitted songs. So, while this all is very exciting, let's spice it up with magnificent tracks by ARC (Submissions 02), Klangzaun (Ignition), ['ramp] (No Sleep 'til Wilmersdorf), Johan Tronestam (Midgard), Cosmic Ground (Cosmic Ground IV).

Soccer and rocker free space

While there is a ball sports hype everywhere on TV these days, this show is guaranteed to be free of it. Nevertheless, it provides a thrilling 30 minutes play. Brand new releases are up for this edition, sounds not to be missed. Where I had some sounds I could not miss lately, as well, coming from a parade of Harley Davidsons having a festival near where I stayed recently. An almost neverending crackling of these heavy machines passing by the only main road of the village. Amazing what sounds seem to please bikers and audience as well. And I definitely prefer the sounds provided by Escape Into (The Mirror), Klangwelt (The Incident), Uwe Reckzeh (Surreal Dreams), VoLt (E-Scape 2018), F.D.Project (E-Scape 2018).

Slow in motion

What a crazy week we had. Somewhat temperaturs like summer, so I wet my shirts instantly. A visit to the dentist, and some painful two following days having "fun with my teeth". Of course, it happened on a public holiday, painkillers to the rescue. So forgive me when I chose rather easy going tracks for tonights show, giving some rest. Now, tomorrow on Saturday is E-Scape 2018. Some of you will be able to attend, some might not. Please, think of getting a VT for the event to support the great artists and to receive cool live recordings from that day. However your weekend goes, have a wonderful half hour time with this edition and tracks by Sverre Knut Johansen with David Helpling (The Vast Expanse), David Wright & DJ Mass (Walking with Ghosts EP), Synth.NL (Schallwelle - Die Besten aus 10 Jahren), Redox (Binary Forecast), Jim Ottaway (Yesterday Passing), mypan (perpetuum musica momentum).

Mind protection regulation

This week marked thee sprint to the finish regarding the General Data Protection Regulation. Quite a fuss on most websites. I barely got as many mails as these past days, for updating the privacy policy or asking for re-confirmation to send mails and newsletters. And exactly todday marks the spot where the new European GDPR is set active. Well, I had to do some work on my own, finding out about some newsletter system needing an update to conform to GDPR. And finally it's kind of done. I'm curious what comes next. But for tonight, I need serenity, especially with respect to music. So quiet but still wonderful tracks on the show tonight, composed by Fringo Chills (...in the nature), Sevensy (Finally Infinite), Simon Wilkinson (Stateless), Steve Roach (Molecules of Motion), Kevin Lyons (Organised Vibrations).
