Living the flow

This was a strange past week. My thoughts got a bit dizzy at work, maybe doing to many things in parallel. So tonight's edition is full of excellent music that makes my brain focus only on the sound of electronic music at it's best. Meanwhile, on facebook I asked for what people would think of making the show one full hour in length. Quite positive response to date. But, of course, you listeners should have a say. Let me know by commenting on social media or soundcloud or mixcloud or by sending an e-mail. Would you like 60 minutes of syndae? is it too much at once? I'm not sure about the format though, but with the license being cleared it could be done. For now, enjoy the compact half hour treat presenting cool tracks by Sylvain Carel (Sunrise on Panipat), Sensory++ (Exoversum), Klangzaun (./.), Jingoba Electric (So Far), Sverre Knut Johansen (Dreams Beyond).



Sylvain Carel - Daughters of the Mughal King (Sunrise on Panipat)
Sensory++ - We'll Never Be the Same Again (Exoversum)
Klangzaun - Starwalk (./.)
Jingoba Electric - Whirling (So Far)
Sverre Knut Johansen - Dreams Beyond (Dreams Beyond)

When one sun goes down another one rises

And suddenly summer is gone. At least at my place, where temperatures dropped from the thirties to under twenty. I'm not that sad about the temperatures, but the world simply is more beautiful with some sun in it. Seeing all that green glowing, within trees and lawn and fields, seeing all the colours reflecting the sun beams as if there is some kind of competition on who is brightest. Simply wearing a shirt outside (and pants, you naughty people), no jacket required. And then there is the daylight starting early and staying long. But fear not, summer will be back one day and those other three terms are not too bad either. But, hey, let's get the beauty and colour back for tonight, with all the wonderful tracks on this show by Fiona Joy Hawkins (Moving Through Worlds), Erik Wøllo & Michael Stearns (Convergence), Holland Phillips (A Momentary Pause), Adrian Earnshaw, Adam Balusik (presah), Sherry Finzer & Chris Jacome (Soul Español).

Pure aural invasion

Back in the studio and ready to go all in with fresh and new music. And we get rolling with some really intense stuff for mind and body alike. Luckily when spending some time in a rather relaxing area of Germany, I missed out on a second heat wave at my home. Which left me completely relaxed and empowered for the second half of 2020, one of the most chaotic years of my life so far. How about you? Comment below on social or soundcloud, what do you think of 2020? And of course, to loosen up and free your mind, first listen to the excellent contributions by All the Morphic Oceans (Forms: IDM Volume 1), Robert Elster (Endless Observations), Roberto Sass (Alien Invasion), Miopec (Wet Desert), All Shall be Well (Zwartgroen).

It's all yours

Yes, the die is cast. This is the very first edition of syndae that is streaming only. I hope you are still enjoying the show. Its full description with all bling bling will still be on syndae.de, including a player framed via Soundcloud. But you will also find the podcast on Mixcloud. And maybe still fed into iTunes, if I did that one right (let me know if I didn't). Anyway, I want to use this edition to say thanks to some of my friends and supporters, who not only are musicians but label owners and otherwise helping me with making syndae known to the world out there. It's a great honor to have you all in my social bubble, and I couldn't do it without your help. So a big thanks, just before syndae goes on a one week break to take a rest from all this collective rights business. I hope you enjoy tonight's music as much as I do. Here you will find tracks by Stefan Erbe (Nachtlichter), Time Away (Alien Invasion), moonbooter (Both Sides of the Moon), David Wright + Stephan Whitlan (The Reflecting Sky), Jim Ottaway (Skies Rain Down).

Colourful ear treatment

Do you know the term filter bubble? It's quite a phenomenon of modern times. Not only do you build your social environment with people you have lots in common. But modern technology, like search engines and social media, analyse you and your preferences. This way, mostly things are brought to your attention, which you like and which correspond to your views. It's nearly impossible to escape your own bubble nowadays, especially with artificial intelligence being everywhere for your benefit. Quite astounding. So, if you want to know of things outside your filter bubble, to get to know different views, always be open to others and other opinions. Oh, do not mistake this as a call to "wake up". Not every statement counts as an opinion. As well as science not being a question of believe. But I am trailing off. Tonight's edition is one of those to break your bubble. Namely the one of your listening habits. Join me for half an hour of really interesting and cool tracks by Pandacetamol (A Different Place), Tomoroh Hidari (小さな夢達), Jack Hertz (Artificial), radium88 (Until the last leaf falls), AnalogX, and Record of Tides (Black Album).

Stream on

And the thinking goes on how to handle the change in licensing. Would be OK to have syndae as stream only? How do you listen to syndae? Do you download and listen later? Do you listen via the website? Or some other way? Let me know. Either in comments or by mail. I am currently looking at Mixcloud, which I use as second channel for a while now. Do you know it? Any experiences you can share? Let me know! But let's get back to the music. Netlabel day special part 2 tonight, with more cool free music. Many artists published music that day, not all of them suitable for syndae. Last week we had the quiet ones. This time, it's the rhythmic edition with excellent tracks by D_Smoker (Hot Trax), Olympic (Pequeño Cosmos), Jack_Plug (Rehacer), pl8 (Special Tape Compilation), SMOK (Brain Damage), Terranigma (Access Frame: Equity).

Celebrating coloured notes

Some of you might have read about the dilemma for syndae regarding music licensed via the rights collective GEMA. They changed the license in a way that I can no longer have music on the show that is licensed by many such organizations all around the globe. This includes some well known artists in electronic music. I am still looking for a solution to this, as it would be a pity for the show, the artists and you as listener. Maybe there is no solution? Well, I am open for suggestions. So let me know, if you have an idea how to handle this issue. Tonight's edition is save, though. All the music is by independent artists who publish their music via netlabels. Yes. It's the first about the Netlabel Day. To calm down from the licensing shock, I chose rather ambient tracks. But, you know, even ambient is quite diverse. So have a great time with music by Harueda Mizu (Desert Song), Teeth of Divine (ReAct I: ReGenesis), Enrico Falbo (Planktón), Whaltthisney (Thisintoxica), Skeleton Hand (Dumb Sounds Vol 4 (Green)).

Hitting the right keys

Where do we come from? Where do we go? What is our purpose? Some questions often asked and maybe answered, especially in philosophical and religous views. To me, this question is a difficult one. If it is the right question at all to be asked. Maybe there will be some mighty artificial intelligence one day, whom the question is given. It may take some million years to get a response, and then it might come clear that the question was wrong and the answer is of no use. Ok, ok, one might see the reference here. But AI can do amazing things right today. Well, and may be used for shenanigans. Like an music creating algorithm. Would that be actual electronic music then? Or paintings, like the teaser image for this show. Well, the music of tonight is still hand made. Enjoy the wonderful tracks by Ethnicalvibes feat. Mayura (Ethnostep 10), Backstage Gurus (Mediterranean Odyssey), Trackologists feat. Cosmic Noise Crew (Seventh Listen), Bristol Manor (Down Time), Code Indigo (E-Scape 2020), Stan Dart (Murinsel III).

Turning the tables

I am currently stuck in home office. Which is nice, as I save an about one hour daily drive to work. But I just realized that I listen to at least one hour less music each day now. Actually, in the past weeks, there is not so much music in my life, if it weren't for compiling a podcast. I assume that I am not the only one, as many people stay more at home now and especially music parties or events simply do not happen at the moment. What are all these DJs doing currently? Switching to Vidcasting? Well, as said, luckily there is syndae. So I have to take some time off to listen to music. The force is strong on this one. So let's have some fun tonight with the right speed of beat, listening to tracks by Bruit Blanc (La moitié de moi), Zen Racoon (Pote 3), Youth & Gaudi (Astronaut Alchemists Remixes), Spintribe (Zephyr), Hynamo (Baba Juno).
