Flakes of music

More snow! And this tie it was my wife and I who had to do the shovelling. It was by far not as bad as in the US, neither in amount nor temperature, but cold enough to make you shovel faster. Worse than handling the shovel is the public service being late, so one has to slide the roads instead of driving. And, of course, it's all the other drivers who can't drive a car in such weather, he he. These are the days one is really happy coming to a warm and pleasant home. And I hope you will feel the same with tonight's episode, featuring hoely tracks by Cat Friendly (Mirrors of the Sun), Solace Road (Solace Road), Mark Dorricott & Stan Dart (Seaside), Psyonysus (Interbeing), Andy Pickford (Objects & Expressions 3), and Spatialize (Beyond the Radar).


Cat Friendly - Sunny Day (Ambient Version) (Mirrors of the Sun)
Solace Road - Translucence (Solace Road)
Mark Dorricott & Stan Dart - Waves (Seaside)
Psyonysus - Amber (Interbeing)
Andy Pickford - Maschinengeist (Objects & Expressions 3)
Spatialize - Tree Frogs (Beyond the Radar)

It's snowing sequences

Snow! Well, kind of. Actually, not really, maybe less then 1 cm of white powder that covered the area this week. But, of course, people were eager to shovel it away. Ugh, how could this happen? Snow. In winter! Lucky me for having a garage. No need to scratch the windows. It's still cold and the air-conditioner needs its time. And a weather to drive carefully. Not because of the itsy bitsy layer of snow, but because of the overy careful drivers on the road. Good to have some nice music in the player, like tracks by Alphaform (Escapism), Menzman & Friends (Insights), Arpegiator (The Polar Response), and MTA Lab (Autumn).

Take a deep breath

Something I really did not miss during vacation is the ride to and from work. It's nothing spectacular, really, but I am always amazed how people seem so in a hurry. Changing lanes like chords in a rock song, speeding and taking over to gain another four metres to the "combatant" drivers. Only to later meet up at the next traffic light. With all this hectic world outside, time and again it is nice to dive into something peaceful. Like the ambient tracks which are on tonight's playlist by Seifert & Steinbüchel (Abandoned Places), NoizeFilter (Absolute Zero), Erik Wøllo (Infinite Moments), DesuExSounds (Soundsphere 9 / Compilation), Adeptus Mechanicus (In an Open Field), and Kryshe (Hauch).

Ready for more turns

So our planet did it and completed another round through space orbiting that bright star in midth of the solar system. And I am quite curious what's up for the next full circle (or rather ellipse). What surely is up is a series of podcast editions of syndae. And I am excited to present more magnificent ambient and electronic music to you all. If I would do any resolution (which I don't), it's to not stop promoting all these great artists waiting to be heard. Starting out tonight with an exciting selection of such artists and tracks of their latest releases, who are Smooth Genestar (Rétrospectif), Mark Dorricott & Stan Dart (Seaside), GreatOwl (Lilia Sin Mi), Sephira (The Master Work), Globular (The Context), and F.I.E.L.D.Y (Tree of Life).

Sweets in, peace out

As a matter of fact it's a bout 10 to 16 C these days, not the weather to expect for this season in this region. But when we are at it, let's bring some summer feeling to us in form of chilling music. Funny though, as the chill is what the temperatures outside should be. In the end, it's all very fitting. More than that, this will be the last edition of syndae for 2018, of course having great electronic music on board, some tracks I missed out in autumn and brand new music as well. I hope you will have a wonderful festive time these days. And if you need some fitting music, well, I prefer the sound of tonight's syndae edition, but there also are the christmas specials from back in the days, which you will find in the arhives at syndae.de. For me, this is the true sound of these days, given to us as tracks by Pan Electric (Step Out), Abraham Carmona (Ibiza), Meesha (Trip to Mars), Andy Pickford (Objects & Expressions III), alucidnation (Paracosmic), and Psyonysus (Interbeing).

There's more than one way

Today I watched a vlog on self publishing. While it was about novels I quite see some parallels to music to be heard on syndae. Some of which is released via a label and others by the artist on his or her own. The vlog did not favour one over the other as both have their benefits and issues. As with novels, self publishing in music does imply a lot of work to be done by yourself, which is usually done by a label. Be it cover design or distribution as well as advertising. On one hand, these tasks steal quite some of an artist's time maybe better spent on composing. On the other hand you can decide everything on your own and quite surely will raise your expertise in a wider field of areas. On my show, I usually have a mix of both, self published and label published music. If you can hear a difference in quality, let me know, because I can't most of the time. So, however published or distributed, enjoy tonight's excellent tracks by Roberto Sass (Ancient Wonders), Stefan Erbe (Reflect), Menzman & Friends (Insights), Curious Inversions (Spire), Space Station (Infinity), and Stan Dart.

Working on sweet things

Back from Belgium with a bag full of CDs and a brain full of nice experiences, meeting up with friends and artists of the electronic music scene. It was a wonderful festival with cool and fresh music, and my last music event for quite some time. Winter is up in the northern hemisphere. And also some festive days with lots of delicious treats. Well, if you are not into candy bars and chocolate santa, maybe you like the treats I have on this show. Very traditional tonight with brand new music by Michael Brückner (During a Lull and Other Tales), Broekhuis, Keller & Schönwälder (Live @ B-Wave), Bernhard Wöstheinrich (Elsewhere), and Anantakara (Momentum Lapses).

Food for fantasy

Tomorrow I'll be on the road to Belgium, looking forward to great musical acts on stage and to meeting lots of electronic music fans. If you are there, don't forget to say Hi. Of course, I'll be there with Stefan Erbe joining his stall for presenting The Sound of Syndae, and Stefan will do some interviews for empulsiv, too. There is plenty to see and hear at the festival, the B-Wave organizers did a great job on that. But before I jump the road, with tonight's edition we celebrate the beauty in electronic music. Easy going and relaxing music before the heat goes on. With wonderful and brand new music, brought to us by Chronotope Project (Lotus Rising), Steve Orchard (Skyway), Sylvain Carel (Talisman), alucidnation (Paracosmic), Gavino Morreti (The Corn Mother), and Reskimus.

Revealing a new self

Is it the time of evolution? At least for some artists it seems to be. They slough their skin and appear in new garb, adding new and fascinating aspects and style elements to their music. Hence, you will hear cool and new music tonight, which might need some time to recognized the artist behind. And this is one of the reasons why I love this electronic music genre, it's so awesomely diverse, it never stands still in time, and still remains timeless when listening to tracks from earlier in history. You will geet all of this with the tracks by Stefan Erbe (Reflect), Progeny -1 (Ellipse), moonbooter (Groundcontrol), Pan Electric (Step Out), Rudolf Heimann (Trancefusion), Chris Gate (The Sound of Syndae).
