Hot and sparkling

Back in my youth, when I started listening to music, there of course was the songs my parents were listening to. But their styles did not resonate with me. I did listen to some country, folk and pop at the time, actually tried to record myself singing (which was terrible), but rather soon got into instrumental music. First it was guitars (which I tried to learn, too, but failed due to my clumsy fingers) but then I discovered organs and keyboards. It took quite a while until one had the computer to have all the instruments and recording equipment at your fingertips. And music evolved very fast regarding electronics. I now love lots of styles, therefore you get different music each show. So tonight we are up for a more current style of electronic music, where we meet some great artists for fresh and progressive sounds with ELEON (Hidden in Time), Divine Matrix (Journeys), Eisenlager (Atombomben Musik), 6TH CROWD (Sokolonko), Salvatore Mercatante (SM Synthesis), Radium88 (We Are All Dreaming Now), illocanblo (Thirteenth Listen), Existential Wabbit (Thirteenth Listen), Globular (Holobiont).

 

Playlist:

ELEON - Just a Day's Journey (Hidden in Time)
Divine Matrix - One Small Step (Journeys)
Eisenlager - Ukraine Melodie (Atombomben Musik)
6TH CROWD - Sokolonko (instrumental) (Sokolonko)
Salvatore Mercatante - Diety of One (SM Synthesis)
Radium88 - The Age Of Complicity (We Are All Dreaming Now)

Sounds of silence

Well. What do you do, when the world gets crazy? About three weeks ago I crafted edition 623 to air for when I'm out of town. Everything was set up and scheduled. But than a tragedy happened: Vangelis died. I was saddened, as he is one of my musical idols for sure. Having the show as planned did not seem right. So I cancelled it. 2022 seems to be a bad year for electronic music fans so far with all the losses. Just when live events seem to come back to enjoy our music, life tries to turn us down again. Now. For tonight, I redid edition 623 to honor all the great musicians and supporters we lost by example. I chose mostly tribute tracks, as I am surely not alone with my grief. Join me in celebrating their greatness with tracks by Depeche Mode (Spirit /Deluxe), Luna Firma, Kuutana, The Roboter, and Sequential Dreams (In Memoriam - A Tribute to Vangelis), Eagle (Synth. Music) (The Superclean Dreammachine - A Hans Moret (Hans Prisma) tribute), Rob Papen & Ron Boots (Klaus Schulze Tribute).

Variations in symmetry

There is beauty in repetition, especially, if it is not the same all the time. Sounds paradox? Well, people do love symmetry in things. At least, most of us do. It is a sign of beauty. And if there is something out of the order, one can easily get disturbed by it. On the other hand, if something is too symmetrical, we easily get bored. So tiny divergences are cruicial to make things interesting. This holds for visuals as well as aural things. I love a great sequence, may it be rhythm, bass guitar, or a step sequencer. But if it stays the same for too long, I lose interest. Some people are masters of making it sound interesting, and here they come in numbers with Fanger & Schönwälder feat. Lutz Graf-Ulbrich (Analog Overdose 6), K.I.Companion (Wayfarer), The Tin Box (Thirteenth Listen), Eisenlager (Supermax), Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate (The Confidence Trick), Wellengärtner, Wöstheinrich & Parsick (Ultima Ratio).

Prints in the sound

Do you also often wish for a crystal ball? Wouldn't it be great to be able to see the future? Or would this impose you trying to change the future? Which would render the vision by the crystal to not come true. So it it still the future? There are tons of books and movies about time travel and how it could work. Ok, different story though. And I am not sure where I am going with this at all. For tonight's edition, I chose to focus on serenity. Kind of. I just need some quietness in live for a moment, for a glimpse. Join me, will you? Really great tunes by Dave Luxton (Ghost of a Small Child), Karmacosmic (Inner Peace), Jeff Greinke (Noctilucent), Craig Padilla (Discovery of Meaning), Time Away (Journey to Bytopia), OneAmbient4 (Spring Volume 2), Rusty Crutcher (Oracle Of Delphi), Michael Stearns (Planetary Unfolding).

Sound of the undead

What comes after death? There are some theories about it, and as far as I know, noone has yet proven any of them. Well, I hope there is some kind of heaven, where all the really good guys meet up and have some great time. Something I also wish for Klaus Schulze, who passed away this week. Sad news to all EM lovers, indeed. What I do not wish for anybody is to come back dead (or undead for that matter) and live a haunting un-life. The latter is proposed by many books and movies, the youngest being a virtual move called Dawn of the Undead released today, where I have the original soundtrack for you. Hope you will still enjoy the show with music by Klaus Schulze (Angst), Talking to Ghosts, Hellweed, Aestheia, Myth, Progeny -1, Time Away, Ambient Indigo, Wane of Summer, Promethex, K37 (Dawn of the Undead).

Support is sound

It seems unbelievable, but these atrocities are still on-going. Only because of a few old, white guys living in the barbaric ages where the bats ruled the world. Four weeks ago I featured Musicians for Ukraine Volume 1, an album where all earnings go to humanitarian help for fugitives in need. Now, there is Volume 2 available, and this show is solely dedicated to this album with great music by AUEL, Alchemorph, Deep Sky Musics, Two Weeks, Inum, LA Fillette, Utopia Fade, Eagle Rays, Carameladora, Peter Wild, Another Dawn, Loss Combinator, Renovatio, and Olduvai (Musicians For Ukraine Volume 2).

Sound bunnies

I am not sure what to say about this time of the year. It should have been some days for peace and hope, so the music on this edition does actually go in this direction. What can one do other than hope for the world becoming a better place? There are good people out there, at least that's what I believe and what I experience in music. Enjoy this hopeful hour with music by Marcello23 (Zeitgeist), David Helpling (IN), Will Ackerman (Positano Songs), Bernward Koch (Dreamy Piano Music to Relax), Ronald Van Deurzen (Tale of Dreams), Gian Berselli & Jérémy Marais (Creative Stillness), Divine Matrix (Journeys), Steve Orchard (For Sunny Days), Stefan Erbe (Distopia).

Springing to live

Well, it's Spring. Kinda. And it is April. Definitely. At least according to the weather switching between snow and rain and sunshine within a few days. Is this still important? I do not know. What I do know, though, is that music is important. Music keeps you sane and makes life worth living. So here we go for a nice bunch of tracks providing aural delicatessen. Have a great time with music by F.D. Project (Color of Life), Eagle (Synth. Music) (Hypervelocity Star), Audio Obscura Vs Black Sonar (A Scream From Outer Space), Hyrn (Furrows in the Ground), Johan Tronestam (Spring Volume 1), Ivan Black (Last Assignment), Colin Rayment (Polyphonic Memories II), Bernhard Wöstheinrich & Alexander Paul Dowerk (Vault Amusement), Tangerine Dream (Raum).

Sipping the sun

Join me and take a break from the crazy world outside listening to some chill out tunes tonight, where I mixed mid to low paced music this time. We had some nice sunny days in the end of this March, but even the weather decided to go for April now. And while this edition appears on April 1st, there is no joke inside but all very cool music that was published recently or will be soon. I am really lucky to have music putting my thoughts to breeze from time to time. So do the tracks of tonight very well composed by Roberto Sass (Psyche), CIALYN (Sour Leaves), Morgen Wurde & Tis (Wacht), ELEON (Hidden in Time), Sigel (midnightradio compilation 110), Eisenlager (Can Potatoes Cure Insanity), Simon Klee (The Light Of Elevation), Second Sight (International Index), Stan Dart (Electronic).
