Keys to aural happiness

Back from a weekend family trip, I am up for a new edition of electronic music. And I hope you are, too. Quite some events coming up, so more pointers to where to go for fine live electronics on this show. If you are taking a trip or two, hopefully you have good weather on the way. I did not, and it's definitely no fun riding the highway with rain dropping your sight to about 50 metres. And if it does not work out, some of the events offer virtual tickets as well, so you can even go without going and "be there" even you cannot make it. Ok, I'm off for a longer weekend to catch up on sleep. But surely always listening to great music, like given to us on this editon by Saafi Brothers (The Quality of Being One Remixes Part 2), Code Indigo (Take the Money and Run), Ron Boots, Frank Dorittke & Harold van der Heijden (Derby!), Pyramid Peak (Anatomy), Ray Garrido (Spirare / Compilation).

Adventures in sound

So it is done. The first phase of creating the syndae CD is finished, all submissions registered and send out to the jury. Thanks so much to all who participated in the call! Well, now the artists' works are done, the jury and I are up next. Preparations are on-going. And while an exciting part of the process is done, and the next one is up, I need some music to ease my heart and soul and mind. There's plenty of new stuff on my playlist, but also some events that are afoot. Have a joyful evening with tracks by Erik Wøllo (Threshold Point), Kuba (Animalia), John Kerr & Ron Boots (Juxtaposition Live), Captive Portal (What is?), Bob Holroyd (The Cage).

High voltage

It's just one weekend and the deadline of the call for tracks for the syndae CD is about to close. I can say I am quite excited about putting together an album, and I already have fabulous tracks on my drive to be selected from. Thankfully, it's not me who has to decide which ones to take. I am sorry for any of the tracks not to make it. So, currently I am thinking about the packaging of the album and its design. And actually the name. Any suggestions on how such a compilation should be named? Difficult decision. Well, fortunately I have quite some fresh music to listen to, while running my neurons hot. Excellent releases, I might add, and you will get fresh music by ['ramp] (No Sleep 'til Wilmersdorf), EFSS (Tidal Shift), K.Markov (Excerpt Two), Otarion (Under Surface), Akikaze (Blue Sky Events).

Fetch your green light

Two weeks ago we still had snow, now it's quite over 30C at our place. Definitely a time to slow down and have the music at a not too high pace. And we are visiting the earlier era of electronic music, at least in style and feeling, as the music of course is young and recently released. While you will have a relaxed time with syndae, it is still very intense and thrilling to listen to. Well, nature greens up and blinds go down for the sun. Best time to lean back and listen carefully to tracks by TaboTago (Kymatica), Loomeer (Anesthetic 9-16), Michael Hodges (Explorations), Yves Potin (Life - Unfolding), TFSL (III).

Horribly good sounds

Do you believe in superstition? Black cats crossing, lucky pennies (or the equivalent in your local currency), knocking on wood ... I guess the list is endless, and different between countries as well. Now, today is Friday the 13th, which is considered bad luck in the Western world. There is actually a word for it: "Paraskevidekatriaphobia". At least they do such words in non-german languages, too. But anyway, It's called superstition, because its considerred an irrational belief. Well, who knows. Not at all bad, but maybe a bit darker, comes tonights edition of syndae. I hope you enjoy the tracks nonetheless, which are by Blinky Blinky Computerband (Collide), Depeche Mode (Spirit Deluxe), Nick R 61 (Spirare / Compilation), Level -1 (Mother Brain), One Dub Connection (Digital Family Vol. 7 / Compilation), Listening Satellites (Everything is a Glitch).

Sounds like stardust

Space, the final frontier. When thinking about drifting through the vast emptiness -imagine there only is about 4E-21 percent of matter in the universe- it's mostly some languorous or serene sound that comes to mind with respect to music. At least to me. Although there is the genre of space music, which, well, yes, does somehow fit to travelling through space, but it's not my first thought. So, when thinking of space in general, and this does not have to be outer space, it could simply be a large plain, some field, usually a peaceful and serene sight, it's either something majestic or ambient reflecting my impressions. And ambient it is for tonight's edition. The one time, where 30 minutes seem quite short for a show. And thus, there are only three tracks on tonight, composed by The Long Light (Hiraeth), Jeff Greinke (Before Sunrise), and Jaja (Music For Space Observation).

Angelic discoveries

Not everybody celebrates Easter, although it outgrew its religious meaning similar to christmas. The term Easter Egg got even more popular, not for the festivities but as a hidden feature in computer games, movies, and more. To me, electronic music and relatives are quite a collection of Easter Eggs within music in general. With only a few exceptions, most people rather listen to the ever repeating popular and furbished mirror-bright artists. Well, they miss out a lot, as to be heard on tonight's edition with extraordinarily fine tracks by Vangelis (Direct), Otarion (Under Surface), Ian Boddy & Erik Wøllo (Meridian), Dreams Beat (Dreams Beat), Eagle (The Last Kosmonaut), and Jarguna (Pareidolia).

No time to waste

I'm not sure what one may expect from the first day of spring, well, I didn't expect to see the world around covered in snow. Crazy times. Like stopping before a railroad gate and expect a train to pass by ... ok, well, consequently there will be a train passing, just takes endlessly before it does. Or coming to halt at a traffic light in the midth of nowhere late at night, waiting for minutes watching empty roads in all directions. Well, or when the clock is set one hour forward for summer time, which is happening this weekend over here. It all feels like you are wasting your time. Not so with syndae of course, where you will get the finest electronic music, no doubt. Like the tracks you will get in this edition, thankfully served by Obri (Afterglow), Nearfield (Mars (Reissue)), moonbooter vs. BatteryDead (Live Muenster 2017), Faber (Monumentum), Kri Tik (North Capital), Inside Out.

Dubbious joy giver

So last week we celebrated the serene world, and I don't want to wake you up the harsh way. Thus we go a bit forward tonight, but ont too fast. And when I am in the need for being aurally comforted, dub and chill material most times is a good choice in my ears. It's always great to simply lean back, close my eyes and fall into the patient grooves and moves of this kind of music. No more words necessary, I think. Take your seating position, and enjoy tracks by Illocanblo (Mercury), Jim Black (Yoctosecond), NOID (TEMS. Craters: Suavjarvi), joergmueller (Heavy Dub Vol. 3), Giriu Dvasios (Gydantis Lietus), Protyv (Amso).
