Life can be tough sometimes, great if artists like the Ambient Collective care and put out a release for charity. And with some great tracks, too, of course. Three of these you'll get on this show, by Bluejooz, Braindouche!, and Greg Plummer. But there is more to this chill out episode: new faces at syndae with Rieg from Norway and Parseque from Germany. And a wonderful quiet track completing the relaxing moments of tonight's show by René van der Wouden.
Fluent grooves in rhythm and bass, unwinding patterns that get you moving. On tonight's episode, you will get a continuous driving atmosphere, hopefully helpful to wind down from the weeks exhaustion. Marvellous dubby tracks on this show by Das Kraftfuttermischwerk, EugeneKha, MetanoiaX, Para, and Taschenrechnermusikant.
Continuing with re-viewing the Electronic Circus. In volume 2 of this episode we take a listen to the main act of 2010, Spyra & Lang, with two temendous tracks. But also get to know about a label and artists new to the Circus, and new to Germany, with Mirai from England and Glenn from Norway.
It's early 2011, and we take a look back at 2010. One of the most successful and impressive EM festivals in Germany has been the Electronic Circus of last year. Great artists, great atmosphere, and lots of fun. This two volume episode gives you excerpts of live recordings as well as of the just released interviews done at the Circus. Of course, lots of music, and in volume one you will get tracks by Computerchemist, Deep Imagination, Harald Grosskopf & Udo Hanten, MorPheuSz, and Nattefrost.
Happy 2011 everybody! As a startup to this year, a tiny focus on the upcoming Schallwelle awards and this year's winner of the lifework's prize, Klaus Schulze. The Schallwelle is the German award for electronic music and will be given in 6 categories. Moreover, it's open for voting to the public, so cast your votes now. Complementary to Klaus, two tracks by admirers of the 70s close tonight's show, composed and produced one by Arroniz and Joost Egelie each.
It's the time of the year again, where many people celebrate the religious happening named christmas and the step over into another year. As in the past two years, syndae has a special episode on christmas, presenting own compositions and interpretations of seasonal songs by EM artists especially composed or selected for this show. This time, an episode in two editions. Having about one hour music in the family edition, which surely is a nice play for a contemplative time with family and friends. Accompanied by a mature edition of more than 30 minutes, obviously not to be given to those of sensitive nature. Overall, a lot of exceptional tracks kindly contributed by Alien Nature, Brainwork, Erik Seifert, F.D.Project, Gert Emmens & Cadenced Haven, Glenn Main, Guido Negraszus, Intelligentsia, Mari Aura (by Xenoton), Matzumi, moonbooter, Nadim Haque, Paul Nagle, Rüdiger Gleisberg, Synth.nl, The Great Schizm, and TMA.
To the end of the year in volume 2 we visit the darker and more experimental areas of electronic music. Especially well suited to expand ones own fantastic mental worlds. Therefore, have a wonderful nightly fun with this episode and tracks by Apectee, Bernhard Wöstheinrich, Gliese 614, Martin Lowack, Nunun, and We are Creosote.
Time to close 2010. But before going over to the holy time, we go for some cool new stuff being released in the final month of this year. Volume 1 of tonight's episode starts with rather progressive electronica, enjoy a show with tracks by Axess, Brainwork, Going after Zen, Nattefrost, Projekt Gamma & Erich Schauder, Steen Jorgensen, and Stefan Erbe.
It's always a pleasure to have musical heros on the show, and tonight is one such show. I welcome Erik Seifert as interview guest on this episode, giving you insight information on the man, what drives him, and details about his music.
